Dorset

Thatched Eaves is situated 3 miles from Dorset making the location extremely accessible for the many attractions on offer throughout the county.

Bournemouth, with its 7 miles of beautiful golden beaches, free live music events, comedy and Theatre Shows as well as its premier league football team is around 11 miles away or 20 minutes by car.

A convenient alternative to Southampton Airport, you will find Bournemouth International Airport located around 10 miles from Thatched Eaves, with a journey time of around 15 minutes.

Head west out of Bournemouth and you meet the Jurassic Coast, a 96 mile long World Heritage Site stretching from Studland Bay in Poole to Exmouth in Devon, encompassing Lulworth Cove and the natural limestone arch of Durdle Door on the Weld Estate.  The Jurassic coast is a haven for wildlife, walkers and dog walkers, with so much beautiful coastline to admire, whilst inland, whether it is the historic ruins of Corfe Castle, the wow of the Tank Museum at Bovington, the cheeky monkeys of Monkey World or the steam train of Swanage Railway, there really is something for everyone, and it is all within an easy drive from Thatched Eaves.

18 miles west of Ibsley, or about 30 minutes by car, you will find historic Poole, the fishing port and World’s second largest natural harbour encompassing Brownsea Island, the National Trust owned island in the middle of Poole Harbour, home of the red Squirrel and the original birthplace for the Scout movement.  Poole quay offers regular daily trips across to Brownsea Island or why not opt for a day out fishing in Poole bay.

Around 5 miles or 10 minutes south west of Thatched Eaves you will find Moors Valley Country Park & Forest, a 1,000 acre woodland park with Go Ape adventure for all the family, Treetop rope trail, miniature railway and an 18 hole pay and play golf course. Dorset’s Heavy Horse Centre is situated around 6 miles from us and as well as being a conservation centre for over 20 rare breed horses, offers lots of family based activities for a great day out for all the family.
