Dove House nestles among 1000 acres of farmland, woods and open countryside. It is reached by way of a mile long drive lined with lime trees and grazing sheep. There are wonderful views from the house over open countryside.
Guests are welcome to walk on the farm and also to enjoy the extensive network of walks and cycle paths that go from the house.
We are situated close to the stunning Jurassic Coastline, and wherever you choose to visit it, this holds a wealth of experiences. From Dancing Ledge over near Studland, the stunning sights of Durdle Door near Lulworth Cove, the lovely old Harbour at Weymouth, The Flete and Chesil Beach around Abbotsbury, Golden Cap at Chideock, the famous Cobb at Lyme Regis and the wonderful fossil hunting. With stunning coastal walks covering nearly all of these areas, the views, cliffs, rock formations, beaches and coastal farmland all offer an exhilarating experience at many different times of year.
