Welcome to Thorncombe

The Parish of Thorncombe lies in the north-west corner of Dorset, bordering both Devon and Somerset. It is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Parish is over 5200 acres in extent and is principally agricultural land. It forms part of the district of West Dorset. There is a population of about 700, half of which live in the village of Thorncombe, and the rest in the hamlets of Holditch, Hewood, Synderford and outlying farms and houses.

The Parish has a wealth of amenities and attractions, and this site contains information, photos and maps to tell you about them and the people of Thorncombe.

The new website is bound to have a few things missing, so for any suggestions or missing articles please contact the webmaster.
