Cerne Abbas is a popular village in the heart of Thomas Hardy's Dorset and is surrounded by rolling hills and countryside. The village is most probably famous for its Giant carved into the chalk hillside but also has many places of interest including ancient church, medieval abbey, Tudor cottages and range of Tea rooms, restaurants and pubs. There is also a primary school, doctor's surgery and village shops.
The main towns of Dorchester and Sherborne are about 8 miles equidistant where a wide range of facilities for education, entertainment health and leisure can be found.
Sport in the area includes golf at Came Down, Dorchester Cricket, Football and Rugby Clubs and Sailing in the soon to be Olympic waters of Portland and Weymouth. Communications are excellent with main line railway links to London Waterloo from all the major centres, cross channel services at Poole and Weymouth, airport at Bournemouth and despite the very rural nature of the surrounding area there is a very effective road network.
