SituationWest Stafford is approximately three miles to the east of the County town of Dorchester. The village has clubs and associations that one would expect to find in an active community along with a 15th century church. Lower Bockhampton, the birthplace of Thomas Hardy and Puddletown Forest are nearby. The surrounding countryside is crossed by numerous footpaths alongside the River Frome and on the coast. The south Dorset Jurassic Coastline is accessible at various places such as Lulworth Cove and Osmington Mills, whilst a little further afield there are other places of interest such as Hardys Monument, Portland Bill, Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis. The County town of Dorchester has many interesting shops, specialist retailers and family businesses, as well as train links to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads.
