About the location
Dorchester 1.5 miles.
The attractive scattered community of Charminster is set in the valley of the River Cerne, surrounded by glorious, unspoilt countryside. It is served by a shop and pub, yet just one and a half miles away is the bustling market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hill fort in England, or visit the County Museum, which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, youíll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorsetís magic spell, you wonít want to return home at the end of your stay!
