Further details outdoors

North Mill's garden is shared by the owner and is surrounded by water. It is mainly lawn with trees and shrubs. There are walks along the towpath of the river and across the water meadows into the countryside. The railway station, main line to Waterloo, is a 5 minute walk and the bypass to Dorchester, Weymouth and Swanage is just across the watermeadows. This makes Wareham a quiet little town with 2 supermarkets, 2 delis, 8 pubs, little shops and 2 Indian restaurants, a Thai, Chinese, 2 fish and chip shops, a Pizzeria and The Priory Hotel. Market days are Thursdays and Saturdays with a Farmers' Market twice a month in the Town Hall.

Further details


The Dorset region

Dorset is becoming rather well known now and you do not just pass it by on the route to Devon and Cornwall. But there is so much to do and see in this small county from lovely sandy beaches, rocky coves, seemingly undiscovered villages and little country lanes leading to undiscovered places.

The famous places like Corfe Castle, Studland beach, Worth Matravers, Lulworth Cove are all within easy distance of the mill but the interior of Dorset is well worth a visit and trips to Dorchester, Sherborne, Weymouth, Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis etc. are a must for anyone wanting to discover the delights of this county.


Wareham is situated between 2 rivers, the Piddle and the Frome and is surrounded by the Saxon Walls, an ancient monument and well worth the walk around. It is full of history and the museum is a great visit. Market days are Thursday and Saturday and every 2 weeks there is a furniture and artefacts auction in the East Street salerooms.

There is an annual carnival in August and the town is closed for the parade. Corfe Castle is a short drive away and the Swanage Railway puts on steam trains all year round and soon the steam is coming back to Wareham. You will then be able to 'bucket and spade it' all the way to Swanage and leave the car behind.
