A moderate 3.8 mile stroll along the South West Coast Path around the much-photographed chalk stacks rising spectacularly from the clear water off The Foreland at Studland. The same sea that carved the soft rock into caves and arches also polished...more

We visited this deserted village on a very wet day, on the recommendation of our b and b owners and we are very glad we did. The information as walked round the ruined cottages, into the church with its poignant message and the schoolroom, was...More
This village is fascinating. And there was a lot more to see than I thought they’d be.
There is a row of houses and you can how tiny they were. And even though the day was warm, they were really cool inside as the walls...More
I first visited Tyneham village over 20 years ago with my children. This time I went with two grandchildren ages 9 & 11. They were absolutely fascinated by the story of Tyneham, loved the renovated school house. Plenty of space to park. Picnic tables where...More

The rest of the buildings are ruins and you can walk around most (which usually have an information...More

i can only concur that navigating the ground between all the abandoned buildings would be difficult/ impossible, however access to the post office row of buildings and the school might well be ok, and would give an insight. Carparking is by voluntary donation, so IF you are in the area I would encourage you to take a little detour and check the area out. I found the sire fascinating
