Abbotsbury is a thriving Dorset village located on the world heritage site, The Jurassic Coast.
Although it may seem only a quaint little village, it certainly has a lot to offer! From Chesil beach, St Catherine’s Chapel and Abbotsbury Fort, to the famous Swannery, Sub-tropical gardens and Children’s farm.
Submerge yourself into the many tea rooms for light refreshments, cucumber sandwiches or even a very tempting piece of cake. Enjoy a beverage in the beer garden of The Ilchester Arms with an unspoilt view up the hill towards St Catherines Chapel. Or just lose yourself on a walk throughout the beautiful coastal countryside.
Located just 9 miles from the county town of Dorchester, Weymouth and Bridport, Abbotsbury is the perfect place for a day out or even a long weekend away.
