Visited Arne for the first time, even although we had been in the Purbeck area many times before. A friend recommended that we visit Arne, as we hadn't heard of it. Excellent walk and very good cafe - had a lovely lunch there.

This place is absolutely beautiful. I visited with my boyfriend for an afternoon stroll and we wish we'd stayed longer. I think it was free for RSPB members but check the website first.

We stayed nearby to RSPB Arne so we could walk down here easily at almost any time of day, preferring to visit in the evening. We went on the last nightjar walk of the year which was incredibly interesting although not as successful as I'd...More

Hello Michelle, The only places to stay within walking distance to the reserve is to book one of the rental properties in Arne village itself. These aren't B&B's though, but holiday rentals. The nearest B&B's are in Ridge... More
