Location and surrounding area

Evershot is famous for its connection with Thomas Hardy. The Acorn Inn in the village is just a stroll away and is said to have been the inspiration for Hardy’s ‘Sow and Acorn’ which features in ‘Tess of the d’Urbervilles’.  The Acorn welcomes dogs in all areas of the inn.

You will also find within walking distance Melbury Park, deer park, woodlands and gardens.

For days out, the beautiful Dorset coast is around 20 miles away, with Weymouth offering dog-friendly options all year round in the Pavilion area.  Weymouth also has a pretty harbor, a great place to stop off for fish and chips or perhaps an ice-cream!
