More extensive shopping, business and recreational facilities can be found in Wimborne, about 5 miles, and in Blandford, about 9 miles, and the larger centres of Poole and Bournemouth are both easily accessible. Golf is at Blandford, Broadstone, Parkstone, Rushmore and Remedy Oak (near Horton), with sailing and water sports at Poole, Weymouth and along the World Heritage designated Dorset Jurassic coastline. Communications are excellent with mainline rail services from Poole or Salisbury to London (Waterloo) and the M3 joined from the M27 providing easy access to London.
