Entertaining young children
Super day out for younger members of the family. Children can feed the deer and small animals, drive mini tractors around, lots of activities. A little bit further away, up to twenty minutes' drive but worth it if you have littles to entertain.

Beach
Ringstead Beach is the locals' favourite, although pebbly, not sandy, there are huge boulders to climb on and a shallow reef to paddle out to. The car parking is around £4 for non-members and there is a fun cafe and shop.

It's worth the longer drive, about half an hour, to this lovely sandy beach with a National Trust car park, but be sure to get there early in high season. Old Harry Rocks are nearby for great walking. There is a cafe too, but it's a perfect picnic beach.

Food scene
Good local places to eat!
This is our local pub, in walking distance by the footpath if you are up for it (but you may like a lift home!) the food is usually good and there is a huge garden with seating and a playground for the children. Disabled parking spot and a good ramp through the front door.
