The Paddock is a beautiful rustic countryside location situated in a picturesque Dorset village full of thatched cottages, wild ducks and a great local community.
The property on which The Paddock resides is a 4 acre family home, and used to be a small holding. As such there are barns and outbuildings on the site which add to the rustic appeal. We no longer have large animals but you'll be able to hear the chickens and ducks kept in the private back garden adjacent to The Paddock.
We are in the middle of a beautiful Dorset village with thatched properties all about and a stream running along one edge of the field. There is a separate field for parking that will accommodate approximately 40-50 cars.
We are situated directly off the A31 with excellent transport links to Dorchester, Poole, Wimborne, Blandford and we are about 2 1/2 hours from London using the M3 and M27. Poole, Dorchester, Wareham train stations are all on the direct London to Waterloo line with regular trains serviced by South West trains and we are a short taxi ride from the stations.
Camping is permitted so if your guests want to be able to crash out after the reception they are more than welcome. Alternatively there are 4 B&B's in the village that can be booked separately.
The Paddock is a field hire only and we do not provide any other items. However there are very few restrictions about what is acceptable on site so you can truly have the wedding of your dreams!
