Things to do

We are 1.5 miles from the ancient town of Wimborne Minster, and within a short distance of Poole, Bournemouth, and Christchurch. Conveniently placed for all the various attractions: Shops, Museums, Entertainment and water sport centres.

There are many miles of child friendly, safe clean beaches, several of which have won the European ‘Blue Flag’ Award.

Walk or ride in the Beautiful New Forest with its wandering ponies.  Visit National Trust properties of Kingston Lacy House and Corfe Castle.

Hunt for fossils at the World heritage site of the Jurassic Coast at Lime Regis and Kimmeridge Bay.

You can spend a day at Monkey World or the Tank Museum, or take a ride on the Swanage Steam Railway.

The little ones might enjoy a visit to Peppa Pig at Paultons Park, or take them to see the animals at Marwell Zoo or the fish at the Sealife Centre in Weymouth.

For those that prefer an active holiday, Poole is an excellent base for wind surfing, kite surfing and sailing, with many water sports centres nearby.
