There’s plenty to see while you’re here…

  • On Holiday

    Exploring by car, we are ideally situated for a day at the coast, with dramatic coastline and highly acclaimed beaches.
    Exploring by bicycle, the North Dorset Trailway takes you through picturesque villages, along the old Somerset and Dorset railway line, past the ancient hillfort of Hambledon Hill.
    Exploring on foot, there are many wonderful walks from the Trooper (and back to the Trooper!).
  • Out and About

    The market towns of Sherborne and Shaftsbury abound with boutiques, delicatessens and cafes, and you can also visit the Abbeys, museums and, in Sherborne, the castles.
    Just over an hour's drive northwards, you can reach the caves of Cheddar Gorge, the beautiful Mendip Hills and Chew Valley Lake with abundant bird life and lakeside cafe.
  • Locally

    There are several walks from the Trooper Inn - and back again! We have handouts of circular walks for you to borrow.
    And the North Dorset Trailway starts at Sturminster Newton, providing 12 miles of off-road cycling or walking along part of the former Somerset and Dorset railway line, close to the River Stour.
    Wherever you walk, there'll be lots to see - including an abundance of wildlife.
