Located in rural east Dorset and close to the borders of Hampshire and Wiltshire is the thriving, community of Verwood, only five miles from Ringwood and home to the Moors Valley Country Park. The village of Verwood is surrounded by farmland and spectacular countryside, making it a fantastic base for touring the region. Within six miles is the boundary of the New Forest, a fascinating and scenic National Park that is known for its wild ponies, deer, pretty villages and traditional inns. The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is also close by and is full of fascinating vehicles whilst an easy drive south takes you to the award winning sandy beaches, shops, theatres and cinemas of Bournemouth. Alternatively, a trip north will lead to the historic city of Salisbury, with its stunning cathedral, Wilton House and, further afield, the Neolithic spectacle of Stonehenge.
Dorset has many claims to fame including the iconic Hovis advert, the best-selling Famous Five Books, and the award winning drama ‘Broadchurch’. Visit Shaftesbury and you’ll find a very recognisable street, Gold Hill. This cobbled street was use in the 1970’s Hovis TV advert featuring a boy pushing a bike up the hill. Walking up/down this familiar hill you’d be forgiven for humming or whistling 'New World Symphony' which accompanied the TV advert.
Enid Blyton’s ‘The Famous Five’ series featured Dorset locations such as the Isle of Purbeck and Poole Harbour, with Anne, Dick, Georgina, Julian, and Timmy the dog having their adventures and enjoying a few ginger beers along the way.
The cliffs and beach at West Bay were used as the backdrop to the ITV crime drama ‘Broadchurch’. Retrace the steps of David Tennant and Olivia Coleman by visiting this stunning section of the Dorset coast.
The Jurassic Coast is over 90 miles of coastline covering from East Devon to Dorset. Recognised as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, The Jurassic Coast, quite rightly, joins other well-known World Heritage Sites such as the Great Barrier Reef (Australia) and the Grand Canyon (USA). It is easy to see why this coast is so popular when it allows visitors to experience a fascinating walk through history.
We hope you have a great Dorset break!

Reviews for Bridge Farmhouse
We enjoyed our second stay as much as our first, 2 years ago. It is a very well equipped and clean property with lots of privacy, and sheep and horses around it! It was a quiet place to stay.
