If you can tear yourself away from the homestead, you may find yourself looking for some holiday activities. Meadowbank is perfectly located, as you will find yourself spoilt for choice with so many places to visit that are practically on your doorstop. If you find yourself itching to explore the local countryside, there are a network of footpaths that lead into the historic town of Beaminster with its traditional square, independent shops (and a Co-Op for convenience) and some really lovely restaurants for those meals out. Meadowbank is also a great base for walkers to explore the Wessex Ridgeway or cyclists to cycle the routes of west Dorset.
Just a short drive away is the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast with its award-winning beaches and cliffs.
