Poundbury is a real community evolving every day with a vibrant mix of independent shops, boutiques and restaurants. Visit the Poet Laureate pub in Pummery Square or the Duchess of Cornwall Inn in Queen Mothers Square for a relaxed lunch, or sample the delightful cuisine at one of the cafes in Buttermarket Square or dispersed throughout the development. There are many unique shops which offer individual items as well as some major brands including Waitrose.
Poundbury has a great range of amenities including a post office, dentist, doctor’s surgery and its very own primary school – Damers First School. There is also a great selection of schools outside the development itself and nearby Kingston Maurward and Weymouth Colleges.
Dorchester Town Centre is also a short walk away with a whole host of high street shops, chain and independent restaurants as well as an Odeon cinema complex. There are museums to explore in the historic County town centre too.
For those that prefer to relax and enjoy the scenery, there are a whole host of areas to explore by foot or bike including, to name a few, the world heritage Jurassic coastline which can be accessed a short drive away and Maiden Castle which is on Poundbury’s doorstep. If being beside the seaside is on your ‘to do list’, the seaside town of Weymouth is just a 10 minute drive away, with an array of fun filled activities for all the family, including the Sea life Centre.
There are a number of sports facilities including the 1610 Dorchester Sports Centre on the edge of Poundbury and nearby Dorchester Rugby and Dorchester Town Football Clubs.
With excellent road and rail links to the South West and London and the South East, Poundbury is an ideal place to call home.
