Welcome From Tanglewood! We are now Super hosts!

Tanglewood farmhouse has 4 acres of woods and streams and 12 acres of grassland. There are plenty of great places to see, in an area with beaches, undulating hills and the highest floral diversity in the UK, not to mention the Jurassic Coast and its fossils.

Welcome to Wareham


An ancient town and former royal borough, the charming market town of Wareham is a veritable delight wherever you look at any time of the year.


Between the rivers Frome and Piddle, the attractive gateway to the Isle of Purbeck was a major port until the Middle Ages. Now a thriving market town, happily combining the old and the new for locals and visitors alike.
