Holidays in Acton, Dorset

Acton is nestled on the Isle of Purbeck within easy reach of the famous Jurassic coast. Acton is a large hamlet of former quarrymans cottages. Unsurprisingly they are made from the local Purbeck stone. This highly desirable stone can also be found in many famous buildings throughout the Capital.

Acton is highly recommended for walkers,as it lies at the centre of a network of paths that lead to the coast, Swanage and through the Purbeck Hills. Its ideal for families, as its within 5 miles of several local attractions, which include the seaside resort of Swanage, Swanage Railway, Corfe Castle and Studland Nature Reserve. A lovely local pub and shop are within walking distance.
