Arne is a village in Dorset which gives its name to a peninsular protruding into Poole Harbour. The peninsular is directly opposite the town of Poole. (see map). The peninsular is home to RSPB Arne.
It has plenty of paths to explore the heaths, coastline and varied habitats, and enjoy the natural beauty of Arne. Although there are many visitors to the area it is still possible to find peace and tranquillity.
The varied habitats are home to dear, reptiles and a variety of birds.
There is car parking at the RSPB centre, and a café, but the point of going to Arne is to explore.
The shoreline at Shipstall Hill is sandy but probably gets very busy during the summer.
