Lovely place to spend, second time I have been but brought my dad who loved it. Took a while to research where the manor was. Would be even better if there was a path that took you to a safe place to see the manor....More

Well worth a visit to see this deserted village. Each building tells a story of the inhabitants who were forced to move out during the Second World War. A fact filled and moving experience.

Really interesting hour or so to finding out about the history of Tyneham. Very sad for the residents that had to leave.

Yes, some of it. But it is a large site. You park and then walk. But u could just walk a short distance and see less. The paths are generally good. Pram and wheelchair accessible, but stoned not tar macadam.
