The famous swannery at Abbotsbury and the nearby tropical gardens


Wonderful at bluebell time but a lovely woodland at any time.


A site of special scientific interest with a diversity of habitat in pleasant surroundings  

 Access is restricted to Friends of Holton Lee only.

The Purbeck Ridge from Whiteways car park west to Flowerdown Iron Age Fort lies within the army ranges and therefore access is limited to when the range walks are open.


A large estate on the south side of Poole harbour which is mainly coniferous plantation.


The village taken from its inhabitants during the war for training troops. Open at weekends and the start of wonderful walks on the Purbeck coast.
