Things To Do
Lower Bruckland Farm Nature Reserve, Musbury
This 21acre, family cared for, wildlife reserve has four wildlife filled lakes begging to be explored – from the banks of course. Take a stroll around and see what you can find. And at the end of it, treat yourself to a lovely slice of cake from the tearoom by the carpark.
A short 3 mile drive will take you into the heart of Lyme Regis, where you can explore the breath taking scenery the Jurassic coast has to offer.
Eat And Drink
The Rousdon Village Bakery
Despite having the monopoly of diners in the village doesn’t take advantage with a lazy menu. The food is fresh, varied and wonderfully presented. The owners describe eating at The Bakery like a social gathering at a friend’s house. The evident pride in their dishes is delivered with every bite and the combinations really give you that wow factor.
The River Cottage Canteen, Axminster
The famous and award-winning River Cottage Canteen run by local food hero Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall can be found on Trinity Square. Here the regularly changing menu allows for local, seasonal produce to take the main stage; you will always find something delightful within the fresh, organic and sometimes wild food options.
Ladies & Lovers
For a gentle stroll follow the Estate’s Ladies and Lovers walks around Peek House.
The grounds of the Rousdon Estate extend to around 350 acres of Woodlands, pastureland and glorious countryside. The estate even has its own private beach which is situated approximately 2 miles from the Mansion House.
Undercliff National Nature Reserve
For a more strenuous coastal walk follow the South Coast path towards Lyme Regis or Seaton as Rousdon is situated slap bang in the middle of both. About 4 miles either way.
