Local Area

We are situated almost exactly halfway between Corfe Castle and Swanage and we’re nestled underneath Nine Barrow Down which forms part of the South West Coast Path.  There’s so much do do around the area with plenty of day trips less than 20 minutes drive from the farm, especially the sandy beaches at Swanage and Studland which can be reached in 5 and 12 minutes respectively!

Some of the most popular attractions we suggest you might like to visit are:

  • The pretty seaside resort of Swanage with its bustling town and sandy “Blue Flag” beach –  2.86 miles from the farm!
  • Corfe Castle and its pretty village – 3.06 miles from the farm!
