Best in Dorset

(I’m a bit confused why I have so few entries for this county. I know I normally get drawn to Durdle Door but I’m sure I have more swim spots to add)


River Frome, Moreton

Looks better than it actually is (for a proper swim that is)


  • The river passes to the east of the village of Moreton (c. 3km NW of Wool). There is a good path/track which takes you from the village across some fords/foot bridges over the river but where the water is pretty shallow. If you go upstream or downstream there are a few pools where you can swim.

  • SZ806/895


  • Easy access, shallow water so good for kids, rope swing and a tea shop in the village…….


  • A lot of walking in shallow water to find the deeper pools. Not good for a proper swim.
