The Dorset region

Trent Vale Farm is on the edge of the Poole basin, known for its benign climate, and close to Wareham gateway to the Isle of Purbeck and defended in the past by the dramatic Corfe Castle. The Isle of Purbeck is home to Swanage, the famous Swanage Steam Railway, the RSPB bird sanctuary at Arne, and the wonderful sandy beaches of Studland and Weymouth.

The celebrated Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, is less than 10 miles away as is Poole Harbour , with the National Trust's Brownsea Island famous for its red squirrels and bird watching in the centre. Poole Harbour is the largest natural harbour in England and has sailing instruction at Rockley Watersports,Hamworthy and sea fishing from Poole quay.

Further inland is a range of hills, with Bulbarrow Hill as one high point from which you can see 50 miles on a clear day including Shaftesbury, a picturesque ancient hill town. Sherborne is to the North of the county, a charming town dominated by its Castle and Abbey, close to which is Cerne Abbas with its celebrated giant, under whom you are supposed to sleep in order to conceive.

The county town is Dorchester dominated by Maiden Castle (a Roman castle), the Hardy monument, and associated with Judge Jeffries who sent large numbers of people to the colonies, including the Tolpuddle Martyrs.


Wareham, an old Saxon market town with a Saturday Market beside the River Frome has some lovely shops, restaurants, and pubs.

Lawrence of Arabia is buried close by at Moreton, and his cottage at Clouds Hill is within 5 minutes drive of the farm. and the cottage which belonged to Thomas Hardy is only a little further off, as are the cottages where the Tolpuddle Martyrs lived.

The River Piddle or Trent (renamed because Queen Victoria considered it rude) after which the Farm has been named is within walking distance, and there are miles of tracks close by in the forest from which Sika and Roe Deer come to graze over the property.
