Welcome to Cerne Valley
The Cerne Valley lies in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you are planning to visit Cerne Valley, looking to move into the area or already living in the Valley, you will find plenty of useful information on this site.
The Valley follows the course of the River Cerne which rises to the north at Minterne Magna and flows through Cerne Abbas and Godmanstone to Charminster. The iconic Cerne Giant can be seen carved into the chalk hillside above Cerne Abbas.
Cerne Abbas, a picturesque village to visit, is the centre for exploring the local area. It was the site of an important Benedictine abbey and that heritage can be seen to this day. The village offers places to eat and drink and stay. It has a village shop and post office, a gift shop, school, church and doctors’ surgery. Minterne House, about two miles north of Cerne Abbas and home of the Churchill and Digby families since 1620, has unique gardens which are open to visitors for most of the year.
This website is financed by the Parish council and the Cerne Valley Business Group and is run by volunteers on behalf of the community. If you own a local business and would like to feature in our business directory, please use the Contact Us form and we will send you details.
