Attractions and nearby amenities

  • Oak Tree Cottage is located in the small village Batcombe, which can be found between the market town Sherborne and the county town of Dorchester.
  • Nearby villages include Melbury Osmond, a beautiful Dorset village where Thomas Hardy’s mother lived as a child. The village appears in his novel, “The Woodlanders” as “Little Hintock”, and you can walk through the deer park to the historic village of Evershot with its pub, The Acorn Inn.
  • Well worth a visit is Sherborne - popular for its beautiful 8th century abbey, it is also a great place to potter around the shops and gift boutiques. Sherborne Castle and Gardens are a must see, with two castles on offer a visit here is very rewarding.
  • Dorchester (Roman Durnovaria and Hardy’s ‘Casterbridge’) is a short drive away, an attractive county town with its Roman heritage including a magnificent hill fort, shops and museums.
  • Weymouth is 20 miles away with its Georgian seafront and sandy beach overlooked by an elegant 3-mile level esplanade.
  • The iconic Jurassic Coast is within a 30 minute drive away with a selection of beaches and seaside towns and villages. The South West Coast Path offers magnificent views and surprising sights, such as the natural arch of Durdle Door, and the almost circular cove of Lulworth. Further west dotted along the coastline towards West Bay and the market town of Bridport are the ‘chocolate box’ villages of Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury (famous for its swannery and gardens). Gardens flourish in the mild climate, and there are many to choose from: Mapperton Gardens, Minterne Gardens, Kingston Lacy, and the subtropical gardens at Abbotsbury are well worth an excursion.
