    Map & Directions

    Road Directions

    By Road from the East Travel along the M3/M27 and join the A31 main trunk road and follow signs to Poole/Dorchester, at the Canford Bottom (hamburger) roundabout you filter off to the left, take the 4th exit to Wimborne. Carry along this road approximately 2 miles through a set of traffic tights. As you enter Wimborne you will come to a mini roundabout. Take the first exit – you are now on Rodway which leads into Poole Road. Our advice is to immediately filter off to the right into Poole Road car park and park there. To arrive at Riversdale Guest House, walk out of the car park, turn right and Riversdale is a very short walk approx 50 metres along the road on your left (a large white building). From the North, enter Wimborne and follow the ring road, past Waitrose on your right and exit the mini roundabout just afterwards on Rodway leading into Poole Road. Thereafter follow the directions as for arriving from the East. Parking Details There is a long term car park (Poole Road Car Park) and we have found it to be very convenient and safe and has reasonable rates (approx £4 for 24 Hours). Overnight between 6pm and 8am is FREE and you can pay for the hours you need the following day the evening before if you should so wish. There are also 2 parking spaces at the property for loading and unloading or for longer term parking (by permission upon arrival). On street parking is also available nearby.
