Around and About Bradle Farmhouse

Our land here at Bradle Farm extends right up to Swyre Head which is the highest point in Purbeck offering panoramic views of the surrounding coast and countryside.

From there we run down to the World Heritage coast at Kimmeridge, which is the nearest beach consisting of shale, rock pools and long ledges. In the village we also have the Etches Collection, a renowned museum of Jurassic marine life.

There are many stunning walks from the farm along the coast and also inland along the Purbeck Hills.

The Medieval village and ruins of Corfe Castle is 3 miles away and provides the link for the Steam Railway to Swanage; a nostalgic 6 miles trip back in time.

The beautiful beach of Studland is 8 miles away with a vast expanse of sand which leads around to Sandbanks where a chain ferry links the Isle of Purbeck to Poole. From this point you can take a boat ride to Brownsea Island and Poole Harbour which is the second biggest natural harbour in the world.

Travelling westwards we have Monkey World (8 miles) and The Bovington Tank Museum (10 miles).

For eating out we have our own Café & Restaurant in Kimmeridge called Clavells, just over a mile away and open every day and some evenings, using our own meat from the farm. There is also the New Inn at Church Knowle a mile away, and there are many other good eating places in Corfe and Wareham.

Our family partnership farms approx 2000 acres of land stretching up to the highest point in Purbeck at Swyre Head then west along the Purbeck coastline. The land continues north up to the Purbeck Hills which runs through to Swanage, with the whole area now being recognized as a World Heritage Site. Bradle Farmhouse is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is the perfect retreat for a relaxing break in rural Dorset but within easy reach of Dorchester, Poole & Bournemouth.

Whether you are aiming to walk, enjoy the landscape and wildlife, have a romantic break or lazy getaway, we will do everything we can to make your stay a great experience. Gillian and John look forward to offering you a warm welcome and the chance to share their beautiful home with you.

“So glad we discovered this lovely B&B in Bradle near Kimmeridge. Perfect in every way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Quiet secluded picture perfect location, large comfortable rooms, delicious cooked breakfast. We walked from the farmhouse and did a lovely walk across the army ranges along the coast from Kimmeridge to Chapmans Pool. We also visited Corfe Castle and Studland.”

“Short winters break around the Purbecks and we were very well looked after by Gillian. The farmhouse is tucked away in a secluded spot on a working farm near Kimmeridge and Church Knowle. Large rooms, great location with a fantastic breakfast. Lovely”
