Things To Do in Plush
Nestled on the slopes of the Dorset Downs, Piddletrenthide gets its unusual name from the River Piddle on which it sits. Thatched cottages and flint farm buildings can be found around the village, and a couple of pubs named The Piddle and The Poachers.
Dorset Gap is nearby, this area is crossed with ancient tracks which are ideal for walks with dogs. It’s a well-known beauty spot enjoyed by ramblers.
Dorchester is the county’s capital and a bustling town offering a wide range of shops. Brewery Square offers a collection of coffee shops and independent cafes, and a market is held in the centre every Wednesday morning.
Dorchester boasts a county museum and a military museum that is housed in The Keep. Behind the Town Hall is a Roman House museum with a beautifully preserved mosaic floor.
Nearby is the hillside carving known as the Cerne Giant that is thought to date back to the Iron Age. Managed by the National Trust you can visit the Giant and the stunning valley around it – doggies are asked to be kept on a lead.
The delightful town of Cerne Abbas is close by, it features in Thomas Hardy’s novel Wessex. The town has some incredible Tudor architecture to explore, plus there’s a quaint tea room here too.
Lulworth, on the picturesque Dorset coast, has a pretty cove that contains vivid blue water and there’s also Durdle Door, a natural arch of rock that stands on the beach.
A little further along the coast is the bustling seaside town of Weymouth where there’s a promenade, SeaLife centre, a water park and countless ice-cream parlours and takeaways.
