We are only half an hour from Lyme Regis with its world famous Cobb and Sherborne, famous for its Abbey and castles. Also within easy reach is Wimborne and its craft markets and antiques. Further afield, and worth a visit are Poole, interesting for its famous pottery, harbour and Brownsea Island, and Bournemouth, with its shopping, clubs and theatres.
