A favourite fossil hunting spot. Apparently there are beds of fossilised brittle starfish nearby as well as beds of belemnites. There's a free car park by the beach and you can walk up Golden Cap from here too, Dorset's highest spot, where the views are amazing.

Beautiful walk along the river, taking in some stunning countryside. Beware of the field of bullocks one needs to cross through!

A lovely shop and cafe

We have often stayed in North Perrott and found that the Farm Shop adds greatly to our holiday. It's a good and friendly place to pick up food and other essentials without having to drive, also to have lunch if you fancy a laid-back day in village with a nice walk to the shop. Also a good place for tea and a cake before checking into our rented cottage.

Montacute House (4 ¾ miles)

An exceptional Elizabethan house filled with treasures, including 17th Century textile samplers and Elizabethan art. This house featured in the 1995 film ‘Sense and Sensibility’.

A lovely house and location . It was a pity it was spoilt by a very heavy handed and hard sell approach in the ticket office to join the N.T. I had to be very persistent to get into the house and gardens without joining up .
Once we had managed to get in we had another issue with an officious lady in the long room who basically told us off for taking the wrong staircase up . It turned out that a rope had not been put in place . How were we to know! Other staff members tried to make up for this and were excellent but the impression overall was poor.

Very interesting

Another West Country gem to consider when in the Somerset or Dorset areas. Although the house was endowed to NT as an empty shell much work has been done by introducing surplus items from other properties and there is a current fascinating exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery which is a must.

The White Lion Carvery (2 miles)

A traditional carvery that has become something of a Somerset institution.

Mrs Scammell July 2009

One of our favourites and we've been going there for over 25 years. Its a real, old-fashioned style of carvery, with an interesting selection of help-yourself starters and has roast pork, lamb and beef which the chef will carve to your specification. You can go back for more as often as you like, but the first serving is very generous! The sweet trolley is prepared each day by Maureen, the owner, who has been running the Carvery for over 30 years. Its a serious must for sweet-tooths!

The White Horse (¾ mile)

Located in the centre of this lovely village, you will find a varied menu inspired by French and British classics, great quality food and local cask ales.

The New Inn (5 ¾ miles)

Sunday lunch is a speciality at this attractive, thatched village inn.

Fantastic service

We chose this for Sunday lunch. The food was impressive and good value for money. The service was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. We were very impressed by the overall quality and the beautiful setting.

A good test of a pub is in mid-winter when there are few tourists about. The New Inn manages to attact lots of local residents out of season and that's a good sign. Some lovely walking from/to the pub car park too!

Mrs Scammell July 2009

Lovely 18th Century pub set in a very pretty garden with meals served in the bar or dining room. The menu is small and changes daily while the food is freshly cooked by the owner, a professional chef. Very professional and friendly young staff.
