About the neighborhood
Bookham is a tranquil hamlet where you will only be woken by birds singing. Buckland Newton, a mile away has a fantastic village shop, selling local produce and papers. The Gaggle of Geese public house is popular with locals and visitors alike, with the chef cooking good value home cooked pub food. Within 4 miles there are several other very good eating establishments. The historic towns of Dorchester and Sherborne are within 10 miles with castles, abbeys and individual shops to explore. Weymouth and the coast is an half an hour drive with many attractions for all ages, ie Abbotsbury Gardens, swannery and smugglers barn.
How to get there
Great Coombe is situated 10 miles north of Dorchester and 10 miles south of Sherborne. From the south, turn right off the B3143 about half a mile out of Alton Pancras, at the Booham Court sign. Carry on up the hill and down the other side, turn right at the bottom of the hill. Great Coombe is the left hand side of the barn.
