It is ideally situated for walkers and cyclists or those who want to travel further afield by car or bus.

The nearest bus stop is approx. 100mts along the lane.

Buses travel to Bournemouth via Ringwood or to Poole.

Dewlands Common is an area of SSSI and is one of Dorset’s protected heathlands, home to many rare species such as the sand lizard and Dartford Warbler.

Roe Deer are often spotted grazing and have been known to come into the garden.

Being only 100 metres from the property the common makes an ideal place for an early morning or evening stroll.
