What Wareham offers for Cottage Breaks
Wareham is an ancient market town dotted with remnants of the past. Grassy mounds are a stern reminder of those defensive walls which were built by Alfred the Great to guard against the invading Danes. Now the town receives much less turmoil and rests in peace on the River Frome - perfect for a self-catering holiday.
Holiday fun in Wareham
What better way to enjoy this part of the UK than to row, row your boat gently down the stream? Yep, you can enjoy a jaunt on the water courtesy of Wareham Boat Hire. As you become accustomed to floating rather than walking, you will slowly sink into the natural pace of river life. Feel the water flow through you, not past you, tingling, thrilling, captivating and resonating with every cell and fibre of you’re being. Your soil will glide and sing on the glassy waters that you share with the swans and ducks, so reminiscent of those beautiful images from The Wind in the Willows. In fact, so similar you may feel as though you have stepped into one of those beautiful pictures…which character will you be today, Ratty. Toad, Badger or Mole? Everyone will have great fun, even the canoeist who falls in! When you have finished messing about on the water, there are plenty on Inns nearby where the only fear of sinking you will have is the fear of sinking too many great tasting ales!
The nature reserve at Arne is just a fourteen- minute drive and certainly worth the visit. Whether your interest is, reptiles, walking, peace, photography, art, botany or birds…everything is here, set amidst beautiful scenery. Now you can truly feel at peace as you traverse the muddy paths and stiles. Pick up a map and then it’s all systems go, there is no risk of getting lost as you simply follow the coloured posts for a short, medium or long trail and guess what? Each route leads to the beach!
Book a Wareham cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Dorset on holiday.
