Kimmeridge farm Bed and Breakfast is located on a gentle slope in the village of Kimmeridge, with views of Kimmeridge Bay over their own farmland which stretches from the highest point in Purbeck (Swyre Head) right out to the recently designated World Heritage coastline. Kimmeridge Farmhouse was built in the 14th Century, with additional extensions added in the late Georgian/early Victorian times. The owners actually farm 700 acres at Kimmeridge which is part of a total of 1800 which they have farmed since 1962. It is very much a working farm with much to see, including two dairy herds, sheep, beef cattle and corn. They offer three ensuite bedrooms; two double rooms, one with bathroom and one with shower, and a deluxe bedroom. There are many stunning walks within the farm and out of it too, including the coastal walk and also inland along the Purbeck Hills. The Medieval village and ruins of Corfe Castle is 4 miles away and provides the link for the Steam Railway to Swanage which is classic 6 mile journey. For the main line train, the nearest railway station is at Wareham. The beautiful sandy beach of Studland is 9 miles away and leads around to Sandbanks where a chain ferry links the Isle of Purbeck to Poole. From this point you can take a boat ride to Brownsea Island or explore Poole Harbour; the second largest natural harbour in the world. Travelling westwards towards Dorchester there is Monkey World (8 miles) and The Bovington Tank Museum (9 miles).
