Footpaths and bridleways meander through the village and on the surrounding hills, making it a perfect place for exploring deep into the Dorset countryside. There is an abundance of wildlife to be found locally (also our resident peacock and dog!). The South-West Coast Path and Jubilee Path provide breathtaking views, while cyclists can take advantage of quiet country lanes or follow the National Cycle Network routes.
There are two pubs and a tea-room within two miles, all within the delightful village of Upwey, with its ancient Wishing Well.
Four miles away is the ancient town of Dorchester, with its |Iron-age Hill Fort, Roman town house and many other sites of historic interest. Also four miles away are picturesque Abbots bury (with its Sub-Tropical Gardens, Swannery and Children’s Farm) and Weymouth - the complete coastal resort. From the town’s beautiful crescent-shaped golden sandy beach, historic harbour, marina, country park and nature reserve to the bustling, rejuvenated town centre, there’s something for everyone. Weymouth is a ferry port for France and day trips can be taken to the Channel Isles. The well-known Chesil Beach (part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, stretching from Lyme Regis to Weymouth) is also a short drive away.
