The Isle of Purbeck


The Isle of Purbeck is on the south-east coast of Dorset and is a peninsula almost surrounded    by the waters of the English Channel,  Poole Harbour,  the River Frome and a stream called Luckford Lake.

The Village is reached by taking the A351 from Wareham to Corfe Castle and the B3069 from the far end of Corfe Castle village.

There are many footpaths in and around the village, and the Coastal Path which is part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is just over a mile away, so we offer good walking country.

The Ordnance Survey Leisure Map No. 15 - "Purbeck" - covers the area.
