A trip on the River Frome is a must during your stay, whether you prefer to take a romantic rowing boat with a picnic or the faster option of a motor boat, a daily hire service is available through Wareham Boat Hire. You may also like to cruise on board the Purbeck Gem, the skipper will commentate and show you many points of interest and local wildlife along the way.

For evening entertainment, The Rex cinema which is just a stone’s throw from Saxon Mews, dates back to the early 1920s. One of the few cinemas in the UK where you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching a film, it is also famous for running its lighting via original gas lamps and holding the traditional interval break for ice cream.

Wareham, steeped in history dating back over 2000 years was once a stronghold for King Alfred the Great, who had built the huge earthen walls around three sides of the town to defend it against the Vikings. The Saxon church of St Martins (the oldest in Dorset) houses early medieval wall paintings and an effigy of Laurence of Arabia (originally intended for Westminster Abbey).

Saxon Mews is just a short car journey from the golden sands of Studland Bay and the blue flag beach at Swanage where you can bask all day. Families with children will be spoiled for choice with many attractions in the close surrounding area… Monkey World, Farmer Palmers and The Tank Museum to name but a few. For those of you that enjoy walking why not take the challenge of conquering Purbecks section of the coastal path, taking in the many wondrous sights of the famous Jurassic Coast along the way. Our favourite spot is the walk from Worth Matravers, with a well-earned stop at The Square & Compass!
