The historic market town of Wareham sits on the banks of the River Frome, nine miles west of Poole. Thanks to its strategic position at the gateway to the Isle of Purbeck, it was the area’s most important port until the Middle Ages. With thousands of years of history, fascinating architecture and great places to eat, drink and shop, Wareham is a popular base for exploring the beautiful county of Dorset. Your holiday cottage in Wareham will be a leisurely stroll from the pretty town centre, where you will discover a variety of independent shops and historical landmarks. There is an excellent market on Thursdays and Saturdays where you can pick up fresh produce from the surrounding countryside. Wareham is one of the UK’s only surviving Saxon-walled towns, and a walk along the walls is a must for great views and a glimpse into the town’s turbulent history.
One of a group of Grade II-listed holiday homes tastefully restored in the peaceful hamlet of Coombe Keynes, Dorset, Odd Nod Cottage is a picturesque thatched coastal cottage amidst an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with three first-floor bedrooms and large lawned garden.
