Little Westport is a charming 1960s Colt House, in a peaceful setting with a large garden overlooking the Purbeck Hills. A perfect location for a short break to enjoy walking, cycling or exploring the area. Having 4 bedrooms, Little Westport is ideal for a family holiday with numerous nearby attractions and activities for children. All the amenities of the Saxon walled town of Wareham are just a 5 minute walk away and just a short drive to the beautiful sandy beaches of Studland bay.
Tucked away down a private lane, with a large garden, Little Westport really feels far from the madding crowd, yet it’s so close to everything you need. The bungalow is set in a quiet residential area and is not suitable for hen/stag nights, events or partying.
There’s much to see and do in Dorset, with its un-spoilt natural beauty – stunning coastline, rolling hills, forests and golden sandy beaches. The amazing features of the Jurassic coast – Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and the Fossil Forest are not to be missed. The South West coast path is a walker’s paradise and the area abounds with cycle routes both gentle and challenging. Poole Harbour is superb for sailing and boating. There are numerous nearby places of interest and National Trust treasures like Kingston Lacy, Corfe Castle, Studland Nature Reserve, Brownsea Island, Hardy’s cottage and Clouds Hill. As well as glorious sandy beaches with safe swimming, children can enjoy Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park, Monkey World, Swanage Steam Railway, Dorset Water Park, Poole Pottery, Kimmeridge Jurassic Marine Life Museum, Tower Park, as well as riding stables, children’s farms and much more. With the seaside resorts of Weymouth, Poole, Swanage and Bournemouth easily accessible, the list is endless. The small market town of Wareham is ideally placed to explore all of this.
The Saturday market on the Quay has fresh local produce and there’s a farmer’s market most Thursdays. Wareham boasts its own independent cinema, a museum, art galleries and canoe and kayak hire on the quay. The Purbeck Sports Centre with swimming pool and tennis courts is 5 mins from the bungalow, and there’s a children’s playground just across the road.
Wareham station is in walking distance with trains between London and Weymouth every half hour.
