Why Wimborne?

Cafes & Coffee Shops

If you're a coffee-addict (and let's face it, a lot of developers are!), you'll be all set in Wimborne. The town boasts a number of independent coffee shops, as well as one of your favourite chains, giving you a range or choices. Or if you're a tea-lover, you're equally well catered for with Wimborne's wealth of unique and quirky cafes.

Pubs In Wimborne

Wimborne is home to (we think) at least 12 hostelries, with something to suit every taste, from "locals" full of real ales and craft beers, to wine-bars, and of course good ole 'spoons. For a post-work drink you've got plenty of choices, including pub gardens in the summer and snug cosy bars with real open fires in the winter.

Open Spaces

Getting fresh air is important. In Wimborne you're surrounded by open spaces a short walk from the Freshleaf Office. Through the heart of Wimborne winds the River Allen, home to a wealth of British wildlife, and a great place for a paddle or a picnic in the summer.

Folk Festival

Wimborne hosts the Wimborne Minster Folk Festival yearly. Including live music from local artists in the town square, fresh food right on our doorstep, Morris Dancers and more. Meanwhile, the pubs also host live music if you're left wanting more.


Wimborne also caters to the shopping addict, and with an hour for lunch there's almost always time for a spot of shopping. Wimborne market is right on Freshleaf's doorstep, with fresh food, flea market, car boots and more. And in the town centre there's a wealth of independent shops as well as some high street favourites such as White Stuff and FatFace.
