Dorset is well known for its picturesque scenerary and beaches. Here are some attractions near to the New Inn.

Swanage Railway

The heritage railway attraction operates full-size steam and diesel passenger trains along the five and a half miles of line from Norden to Corfe Castle and down to the Victoria seaside town of Swanage. The line has stations at Corfe Castle and Harman’s Cross as well as a halt at Herston, on the outskirts of Swanage. There are refreshment buffets at Norden and Swanage stations with picnic tables at most of the stations so you can soak up the atmosphere.

Tyneham Village.

Tyneham Village in Dorset has been deserted for over 60 years, since the second world war. Before that it was an idyllic countryside village, only a couple of miles from the sea and the delightful Worbarrow Bay. It had it's own school, church and post office, several farms and lots of cottages and the mansion called Tyneham House, or the Great House as it was known. Life for the villagers was idyllic and simple. There was no electricity or running water but it was still a lovely place to live, free from the trouble and strife of the outside world. All this changed just before the Christmas of 1943 when the villagers were told they must leave temporarily, however they have not been allowed to return to this day and the village of Tyneham has remained as if frozen in time for the last 60 years. Tyneham History.

The Tank Museum.

The museum houses 300 military machines, representing the key battles of every major conflict since the First World War. Our moving exhibitions tell the story of this British invention; from the mud of the Somme to the beaches of Normandy and the deserts of Iraq – featuring powerful stories from the soldiers that fought in them.

Corfe Castle.

Walk in the footsteps of the castle builders, follow the Purbeck Ridgeway from Corfe Castle to the sea or discover wildlife and history on Hartland Moor.

October half term is the perfect time to get outside with the family and create unforgettable autumn moments, or step inside the houses in our care to discover lots more activities to join.

Margaret Green Animal rescue

We promise to make sure animal welfare is at the heart of every decision we make and we will always act in the animal’s best interest. We firmly believe that every animal deserves to live its life free from distress and pain and enjoy physical and psychological stimulation. Sadly, there are too many domestic pets being bred. This then leads to vast numbers of abandoned and unwanted animals being placed into care. Whilst in our centres, all animals live in facilities which are designed to offer a living environment that is suitable for their needs and enables them to act out their natural behaviour. All the animals are able to enjoy exercise and are provided with lots of enrichment activities. The rescue dogs get to socialise in off-lead groups, which can really help with their chance to be rehomed as they get used to other dogs.

Monkey World.

Since its opening in 1987, Monkey World has rescued primates from all over the world, assisting 27 governments to date. In many cases, primates have ended up living thousands of miles from their native home range, having been smuggled from the wild. Most of the primates that live at Monkey World have been rescued from circumstances of abuse or neglect and, subsequently, suffer from a variety of physical and/or psychological health conditions..

The Blue Pool

The Blue Pool Nature Reserve & Tearooms forms part of the Furzebrook Estate which traces its history back nearly 400 years. Established in 1935 the Tearooms opened their doors to the public nearly 100 years ago! A collection of beautiful old buildings packed with art deco / art nouveau charm and set under a Canadian cedar shingle roof. The reserve represents a fragile environment which was recognised for its uniqueness and received protection from exploitation well before global ecological damage became a public concern.

Isle of Purbeck Golf Club.

We are excited to have David Langheim aboard to lead the green staff and bring his extensive knowledge and skills to the Isle of Purbeck Golf Club.

Dorset Golf Resort.

Rated in the TOP 150 English Courses, the Lakeland, Parkland and Woodland at “The Dorset” were designed by the prolific course designer Martin Hawtree. Hawtree has received international acclaim for his excellent work re-designing Royal Birkdale for the British Open and his more recent design of the 5 Star Trump International Links in Aberdeen for Donald Trump in Scotland.
