The X53 goes past the end of our drive!

January 31st edition of The Times lists the top 7 scenic bus routes.

Catch the X53 (First Bus) from Axminster to Weymouth along the World Heritage Jurassic at the bus stop just 3 minutes from us.  A great day out going through Lyme Regis, Bridport and numerous picturesque villages, ending the journey at the seaside in Weymouth.

The X53 Axminster to Weymouth, Dorset

This exhilarating two-hour journey takes a mostly coastal route via Lyme Regis and Burton Bradstock, cruising over rollercoaster downs with sea views and squeezing through honey-stoned streets. On the top deck you are level with straw animals on thatched cottage roofs and can peer into gardens full of Spanish daisies. The bus rolls over a headland to reveal the hilltop St Catherine’s Chapel in Abbotsbury, backed by Fleet Lagoon.
