About

John and Janette Paulson welcome you to “The Frampton” a traditionally family run Inn situated in the heart of ‘Hardy Country’.

The Frampton Arms was built in mid 1840 to coincide with the opening of the railway – and what better site for a Public House than opposite Moreton Station.

Situated on the B3390 you will find this very attractive Pub situated adjacent to the railway crossing with regular services to Dorchester, Weymouth, Bournemouth, Southampton & London Waterloo.

There are excellent entertainment and shopping facilities at Bournemouth & Poole.  We are ideally situated to explore the Dorset countryside with its picturesque villages – Lulworth Cove & the Purbeck hills are to the south and  to the east you have the New forest, Beaulieu and the sailing town of Lymington.

Local attractions are Bovington Tank museum, Monkey World, Athelhampton House, Moreton Church with its famous etched windows, Clouds Hill cottage (home of Lawrence of Arabia) and the Clock & Cider Museum at Owermoigne. There is  also  the Tincleton lifestyle & aquatic centre.

A wide range of activities are available in the area including windsurfing, sailing, fishing, horse riding & golf (we are affiliated to East Dorset golf club and special rates can be arranged when playing this course).  There is also Zorbing at nearby Bockhampton.

A further attraction is Sculpture by the Lakes at Pallington and this showcases the work of sculptor,  Simon Gudgeon. This has been designed to inspire true lovers of art by offering a unique outdoor art venue. For more information visit www.sculpturebythelakes.co.uk
