Things to Do
We are situated within Purbeck often described as an island, but in reality it is 60 square miles of land that is surrounded almost completely by water, technically making it a peninsula.
There are castles, old churches, parks, and miles of shorelines (The Jurassic Coast) each section with its own unique features.You will find resort areas, like the traditional seaside resort of Swanage with its sandy beaches, the markets of Wareham and quaint villages with rustic country pubs.
To the West of Winfrith is the country market town of Dorchester with numerous shops, restaurants and a brand new cinema and restaurant complex at The Brewery. A market is held in Dorchester every Wednesday.
Weymouth is 9 miles away to the South West and is a typical seaside resort with a large sandy bay, large marina and harbour, amusement arcades and numerous pubs, restaurants and takeaways. A park and ride operates daily.
Beyond Weymouth is Portland, home of the 2012 Olympics. This is on a peninsular and has Portland Bill lighthouse which hosts guided tours.
More locally and across Dorset there are numerous footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes for the active tourist.
