Rabbit’s Bothie is just three minutes’ walk from the photography museum at Dimbola; St Agnes church with its thatched roof; and Orchard’s, the village grocer. There is a selection of paths onto the National Trust’s Tennyson Down from Gate Lane, the road leading to the beach at Freshwater Bay and Afton Marsh.

In the other direction, Bedbury Lane leads to Farringford, the former home of Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Linen, towels, crockery and cutlery are provided for up to four guests.
