The picture postcard perfect village of Abbotsbury is situated between Bridport and Weymouth. It is situated a mile inland from the iconic Chesil Beach and Fleet Lagoon, and features a wealth of local businesses and attractions, such as Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens.

Abbotsbury is a picturesque Dorset village

The hills that shelter the village provide a warm microclimate, allowing many exotic and unusual species of plant to thrive at the Subtropical Gardens. The Fleet Lagoon provides sanctuary for a colony of nesting mute swans at Abbotsbury Swannery. In the village, you will find a post office, public houses, tea rooms, independent shops, art studios and much more. The village is served by the X53 bus route and, in the summer, the ‘Slow Coaster’ Bus.

There is a dedicated website for Abbotsbury, which can be found below:
