The Valley of Stones is named after the sarsen stones that are scattered across the area. Part of the Bridehead estate, it is a nature reserve managed by Natural England.

This circuit from the pretty village of Portesham passes through the hamlets of Coryates and Rodden before descending to Abbotsbury. It is part of a larger cycle tour of the area designed by West Dorset District Council, see also Valley of Stones: Abbotsbury.
