Arne village and civil parish is situated in the Purbeck district of Dorset. It lies 4 miles east of Wareham on the Arne Peninsular which protrudes into Poole harbour opposite the town of Poole. Local travel links include the train station at Wareham and the Bournemouth International airport which is 11 miles (18km) away. A main road runs right through the village and connects Arne to Wareham. The 2011 census revealed the village has a population of 1,297.
Although some of the village has since been rebuilt since the Second World War, the only remaining relic of bygone days is the small 13th century church of St. Nicholas built on the hillside by monks. It is a very simple church having no tower and the nave and chancel are one. It still retains its original lancer windows and the view from the altar windows is probably the best in the village. The village name comes from the Saxon, Earn, which means 'a house'.
Arne has an unusual and special landscape where you can enjoy a vast expanse of open heathland and old oak woodland. It is very popular with families who love to walk at any time of year and there are regular children's days that enable all the family to learn about the unique nature of the surrounding heaths.
