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.
