About the location
Dorchester 12 miles.
Bere Regis is surrounded by beautiful Dorset countryside and is superbly positioned providing easy access to the historic market towns of Dorchester, Wareham and Wimborne, the port town of Poole, and the Georgian town of Blandford. Set just 10 miles inland from Lulworth Cover and Durdle Door, Oak Cottage makes a great base for walkers following the South Coast Path or exploring the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, or for mountain bikers and dog walkers who want to explore our local network of bridle paths. We are also spoilt for choice with a variety of stunning local beaches. Bere Regis is also a good place for exploring Thomas Hardy's Dorset, with his birthplace just a short drive away, and the village is famous for its connection to Hardy's novel 'Tess of the d’Urbervilles' where it is referred to as 'Kingsbere'. Our church is renowned for its carved roof depicting the 12 apostles and contains the stained glass Turberville window and the family's 16th Century tomb. We are well located for Athelhampton House, Lawrence of Arabia’s Cottage, Monkey World and the Tank Museum at Bovington as well as the Swanage Railway and Farmer Palmers for children, all of which are well worth a visit. With the wonderful Mays Wood on our doorstep, covering much of the farmland south of Shitterton and running up to Black Hill Heath there is no shortage of delightful areas for walkers and dog walkers alike to explore. The village has two pubs, a shop, a post office, a petrol station, playing fields and a playpark for children. You are truly spoilt for choice at this wonderful location.
