About the neighbourhood
Duckling Cottage really is the ideal location to go out and see all that the resort has to offer. If exploring the historical places of interest within the resort and the surrounding county of Dorset is something you wish to do, then again the cottage is in the perfect location to be the base for any adventure you may plan .The cottage itself is said to be within the area where a certain King George visited his mistress through secret tunnels. Turton street was named after the royals head physician John Turton; who was given the property at the entrance to the street to tend to the late King George bouts of madness. The famous Nothe Fort, sea life centre, tank museum and monkey world is a must for young and old.
Getting around
The cottages central location means your car may never leave the drive! however the train and bus station are only a stones throw away if you wish to explore the Jurassic coast; Lyme Regis, Swanage and West Bay (Broadchurch crime drama) are all easy accessible by car or bus.
