Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Our properties are all located near our family-run dairy farm and you are welcome to watch our herd of 100 cows during milking time, and watch the calves being fed. We also have a few sheep and some chickens. Don't forget to pack your wellies! Hooke is a small village with lovely walks around village or in Hooke Woods nearby and Beaminster a small town with shops pubs café and coffee shops is only four miles away.
West Dorset is one of the UK's loveliest natural treasures, and an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As diverse as it is beautiful, there is plenty to occupy lovers of the countryside, fine dining, culture and entertainment, crafts and curiosity shopping, and much more besides.
West Dorset's southern border is the famous Jurassic coast, a World Heritage Site and a paradise for fossil hunters of all ages and experience levels and a wonderful place to take advantage of the region's temperate climate for a spot of sunbathing.
You are sure of a peaceful time in our lovely village. Hooke nestles in a valley between two ridges of the famous Dorset hills, close to several major roads but with very little traffic other than the odd tractor. There is plenty to see if you decide to walk around: our charming ancient Church of St Giles and Hooke Court, both dating from the 15th century; Hooke Woods, which in spring is carpeted with bluebells and has many beautiful paths to wander; and the river and several picturesque ponds and lakes. As well as an abundance of common British wildlife and familiar farm animals, you will see ponies and donkeys grazing and, if you are lucky, may even see a kingfisher. In addition, some of West Dorset's finest views are waiting for you as you drive to Beaminster or Bridport - in particular, the Iron Age hill fort on Eggardon Hill has spectacular views over the county and is a good destination for walkers.
Hooke is very conveniently placed for most of West Dorset's attractions. The pretty town of Beaminster is only a few miles away (very convenient for shopping), and there is much to discover in the towns of Bridport and Dorchester which are both within twenty minute's drive. A traditional British seaside experience is also close at hand: West Bay, Bridport's harbour, is a popular destination, as is Weymouth, a pleasant half-hour's drive along the breathtaking coast road.
You're guaranteed a warm welcome from Hooke when you come to stay!
