Introducing our New Team Member, Anne-Marie Brooks

As our property portfolio continues to grow, we are excited to welcome our new team member Anne-Marie Brooks, our new manager here at Wyke Dorset Cottages.

Tell us a bit about yourself Anne-Marie...

I have lived in Swanage for over 5 years and visiting since I was a small child, my grand parents lived here so I spent every holiday staying with them.

What is your favourite thing about living in Dorset?

I love walking in Dorset, I think we have some of the best scenery and coastline.

Sounds great! Tell us about your favourite walk...

I love walking along the coastal path, I think my favourite walk is from Worth Matravers, taking in Winspit, St Adhelms Head and Dancing Ledge. You can enjoy a lovely lunch or afternoon tea at the Worth Matravers Tea and Supper room, or finish with a pint at the famous Square and Compass pub in Worth Matravers (I tend to take a picnic and sit at St Adhelms Head, it’s a good excuse to get my breath back after a steep climb!) Worth Matravers has a beautiful duck pond; the ducks are looked after by the residents and are let out every morning and locked into their cute little duck house every evening.

So, what else do you enjoy?

I really enjoy going to Middle Beach at Studland and chilling out in the sun with a book and Purbeck Ice cream, before having a look around the National Trust shop. It’s a perfect late afternoon for me! The view of Sandbanks, Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight is lovely, and watching the boats coming in and out of Poole Harbour is so interesting.  How lucky am I to live in such a beautiful part of the world!
