Things To Do And See

The Half Moon is right in the middle of an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with rich and varied history – from the first King of England, to the birth of the Trade Union movement, West Dorset has it all. When visiting join us at the Half Moon for refreshments – an evening meal, Sunday lunch, a quick bite or a great pint! These are some of our favorite activities, places to stay and locations to visit!

Mapperton House

Country House

Home to the Earl and Countess of Sandwich, Mapperton is a glorious sandstone manor house and romantic valley garden deep in a lost Dorset combe among tumbling hills and unspoiled countryside. Fifteen acres of gardens descend from the croquet lawn, through the formal topiary down to the wild garden.

Bingham Farm Barns

Holiday Cottages

Roe Barn, Brock Barn, Bluebell Cottage and Buzzards Swoop self-catering holiday cottages are in a fantastic location set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within 4 miles of the famous Dorset Jurassic Coast.
