West Bay which featured on the TV drama Broadchurch is only five miles away and the spectacular World Heritage Coastline is within easy driving distance.

The lively market town of Bridport with its array of eclectic shops, art deco cinema, arts centre and every Wednesday and Saturday the famous street market selling artisan food and bric-a-brac is not to be missed.

For those who love walks and nature, you could not be in a better place with walks in every direction. Head to Eggardon Hill which lies about 1.5 miles south-east of the village. On the summit is a 14 hectare Iron Age Hill Fort with amazing views of Dorset in an AONB or discover the ancient woodland of Powerstock Common.
