Tess of the Vale Membership

Join Tess of the Vale and gain access to over 200 of the best and most unique walks, rides and adventures in Dorset, with new ones released every month!

All routes on the website are viable, legitimate and accessible with clear instructions, directions and parking places. They also include nearby refreshment, some offering a 10% discount with the annual membership card.

The individually tailored maps prove to be more up to date than their OS counterparts as well as being simple and easy to read. The walks are also being constantly updated, with thanks to members and users providing regular feedback – please feel free to do so!

Every adventure includes thorough research into the landscape’s history and legend, helping you to discover Dorset’s real secret treasures, some lying hidden for centuries!

A small selection of adventures will still be available for free, as well as those that have received outside sponsorship.

The membership costs £7 a month (or £70 for the year). This will give you access to all the different rides, walks and wild swimming locations, taking you on plenty of adventures in the Dorset countryside to discover its hidden corners. I also hope that you may even reclaim your money after visiting local pubs over time and receiving the 10% discount!

You can cancel at anytime, serving those that are only visiting the area on holiday.

Those of you that pay the annual fee are eligible for the membership card, enabling the ability to support local rural businesses, especially in these times of trouble, and therefore an extra reason or reward for exploring! Please fill in the form, linked on the members welcome page, and allow time for delivery.

I would also like to offer to all members a 10% discount on any personal map purchased from Tess of the Vale.

I hope you will join me on this journey, exploring everything Dorset is worth, escaping the crowds and finding your own special place!

Please feel free to share where you go, tagging Tess of the Vale on social media!

If you have any questions, queries or problems, please feel free to contact me, even if you get lost somewhere! I’m happy to help and support, wherever you may be!

Look forward to welcoming you.
