The West Country / Dorset region
This area of Dorset is famous of course for the Tolpuddle Martyrs - why not visit the Tolpuddle Museum where you can learn the story surrounding the Martyrs; it is also well known as being 'Hardy Country', and a visit to Hardy's monument is also worth making. Or why not follow the coastal path from the Smugglers Inn at Osmington, along towards Ringstead, then back to the Smugglers for a well-earned drink!
There are some very good eating places in the local area, The Countryman Inn where you can enjoy a carvery or one of many other dishes which are always available, the Red Lion which has a good selection of wonderful dishes for all tastes, the Frampton Arms at Moreton, and for that inevitable cream tea(!) why not try Moreton Tea Rooms which is very close to Warmwell. You can visit Moreton Gardens and plant shop to walk off the damage!
The beautiful market town of Dorchester (6 miles) for it's shops and eating places, museums and cinema, the historic walled market town of Wareham (12 miles) with it's Thursday farmer's market, Weymouth with its beautiful beach and promenade (9 miles) and the vibrant market town of Bridport (22 miles) are all well worth a visit.
The Weymouth / Warmwell area
There is an abundance of places of interest in this area of Dorset, such as Monkey World, Sea Life Park in Weymouth, the Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens, many places along the Jurassic Coast such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, and Lulworth Castle. Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park, Bennett's Water Gardens and The Blue Pool are also worth a visit. There is so much more - too much to mention! There is something for everyone in this area of Dorset.

My husband and I had a fabulous week here at the end of the summer holidays with our 6 year old son, 4 month old daughter and dog - it was just perfect, luxuriously decorated, spacious and so peaceful. We didn't do much all week which was just what I needed! just used the on site pool and went for lots of walks with our dog. We had some sunshine during our week and sat on the verandah with a glass of wine of an evening watching the wildlife. Lovely, lovely lodge much nicer than the standard ones on site, a bit of luxury - go on spoil yourselves!

We stayed at the Kingfisher Retreat in August 2012 for one week. The accomodation was modern, clean and very comfortable. It had eveything that a holiday home needs and more. A lot of thought has been put into making guests feel welcome.
We stayed here with our 7 yrd old daughter and 2 yr old dog. It is hard to find nice accomodation to stay in when you want to take your family pet..but this was just like home from home. The setting is excellant and we all enjoyed the wild deer, managing to feed a couple as well. (they seemed to like nuts). There were plenty of squirrels and different types of birds to watch!!
Out and about, the site is clean and free from any hassle!! The ski slope was good fun, along with the roller skating. Weymouth and Dorchester are both on the doorstep with plenty to do. We never realised just how much there was in Dorset!
