Wooden Cabbage is set in the heart of West Dorset's rolling countryside, view here from top of our drive, in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, about 12-15 miles from Dorchester, Bridport, Yeovil and Weymouth. Surrounded by woodland and fields that are criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways, it is a walker's paradise. Within a short drive are the seaside towns of Lyme Regis and Charmouth to the West, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Studland to the East. Charming villages of Abbotsbury and Cerne Abbas and the old market towns of Sherborne, Beaminster and Crewkerne.
Wooden Cabbage, our very comfortable B&B, is the ideal base for garden lovers with many gardens not only in Dorset and the immediate area but also within a short drive into Devon, Somerset or Wiltshire; ideal for a short break visiting National Trust Gardens and Houses, as well as other lovely private gardens, or those in the National Gardens Scheme.
Travelling slightly farther afield Wooden Cabbage is well positioned for day trips to Wells, Exeter, Bath, Glastonbury and Taunton. So whether your interest is visiting the Roman Baths or medieval Cathedrals, or soaking up the architecture and culture of the West Country, Wooden Cabbage is perfectly placed for exploring this delightful part of the British Isles. It is also a perfect place to make a stopover on the journey to Cornwall.
If you want somewhere to stay while you visit the local private schools around Dorset, Somerset or Devon, perhaps taking in Wells, Sherborne, Bristol or Exeter, then Wooden Cabbage provides an ideal overnight stop before and after.
