Further Information, Events and News...


We hope that you will follow us on social media (using the links at the foot of each page) - to see what events we are planning , such as our Christmas Menu and Dine and Stay offers. 

We are always happy to talk to groups who have specific requirements, such as walking and cycling groups.

We always want to hear your feedback, including how we can make your experience with us as good as we can.

If you have any memories of the Ship Inn over the years, we would be very interested to hear about that too.
English and French spoken - and we are learning Dorset.
For those travelling to visit us our main Carpark is opposite.

For those who stay with us we have information on our locality.
We are ideally placed to enjoy the villages and towns, try Shaftesbury with its most photographed street, or Sherborne with its independent shops, and its nearby castle and Abbey.
Sturminster Newton Mill dates back to 1086 and sprung back into life during the pandemic
There are many heritage sites, such as Cerne Abbas with its “Rudeman” , Kingston Lacey House Estate and Stour Head with those wonderful gardens.
There are nearby ancient woodlands and the Stour valley Way. Walk signposted from the Carpark
And we are so very close to the Dorset Showground.
