Weymouth, Lyme Regis and Abbotsbury, with its' famous swannery and tropical gardens are all within the surrounding area including Eggardon Hill just 2 miles away, with fantastic views of the lovely countryside stretching to the coast. The neighbouring village of Maiden Newton has a grocery shop, public house, garage and newsagents with a coffee shop at the rear which serve excellent home cooked lunches.
