The West Country 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.
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.
