Out and about

There’s so much to see and do in Dorset it would take years!  And we hope you’ll keep coming back.  We have current tourist information available but as a taster we’ve listed some of our favourite things below. You could of course just relax and stay close to home, or for green options, the car never needs to leave Seadale. 

For example:
West Bay is only a few minutes level walk.  It has a little harbour, beaches and some of the most impressive sea cliffs on the south coast - home to sea birds and a hunting ground for Peregrine Falcons.  We can help you pre-arrange fishing and diving trips in Lyme Bay.  More info at

As for places to eat, West Bay has everything from traditional pubs to fish and chip kiosks.  For fine dining try The Riverside.  Sample menus can be found at

Dorset has good public transport links.  The amazing X53 stops close to Seadale.  For a double-decker view take a ride along the Jurassic Coast to Poole or ring the changes and travel east to Exeter for chic shopping. Or, hop off at nearby Burton Bradstock and savour a seafood lunch at the Hive beach. Timetables at

Further afield there are stately homes like Mapperton and Montacute.  Fans of Thomas Hardy will love exploring the Dorchester landmarks and the woodland walk to his family home at Higher Brockhampton.  For details on Hardy haunts visit

Lyme Regis is around ten miles to the west of Seadale and is on the X53 route.  It’s known for the ancient Cobb harbour and of course being the backdrop for The French Lieutenant’s Woman starring Meryl Streep.  Walk along Marine Parade, have an ice cream and sit a while on the sandy beach. 

Then there’s Weymouth, people watching on the quay, day trips to the Channel Islands, sailing off Portland, the lushness of rural Dorset ... we could say more, but come and see!
