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. Local heathland is a protected European habitat, accessible on foot 300 m from Tanglewood, or take one of our walks to Wareham a mile away. There are lots of other places to visit, with excellent scope for eating out. Booking our guest apartment or shepherds hut is easy too.

Our priority is to ensure that people are able to enjoy our glorious county in a safe and responsible way; looking after our local community, our visitors and the landscape around us.
Plan ahead and visit Dorset with confidence
Our tourism and hospitality businesses have been busy carrying out risk assessments, preparing their premises and putting measures in place to ensure that everything is ready to welcome you back for an enjoyable and safe visit.
Whilst restrictions have been eased, things may still be a little different to normal and it’s therefore important that you are aware of these and that you plan ahead so you’re in the know before you go.
Not everything will be open and some businesses may have altered their opening times. We recommend that you check opening times and COVID Secure visiting arrangements in advance of your visit.
Many of Dorsets attractions are beginning to welcome you back and have now introduced one-way systems and pre-bookable tickets and timed visits to manage numbers. Make sure you do your research and pre-book before you visit.
Many of our cafes, pubs and restaurants are preparing to serve you some delicious local food and drink but will require you to make an advance reservation. Many establishments are also offering fantastic takeaway or delivery options.
