Nearest town

Shaftesbury (7 miles)

Another famous haunt of the novelist Thomas Hardy, Shaftesbury has some of England’s most fascinating architecture, including the famous cobbled street of Gold’s Hill and the ruins of the abbey which date back to 888AD. The town sits at the top of a hill with panoramic views in every direction over Dorset and Wiltshire. Despite its glorious position and the beauty of its buildings and streets, Shaftesbury remains unspoilt by tourism.

Really worth a visit

We thought this would be more 'touristy' with the attraction of the Gold Hill. We stayed nearby and could have enjoyed pottering into Shaftesbury everyday. Turnbulls Deli and Cheese shop is amazing. (bring deep pockets). There are lots of cafes and independent clothes, gift shops and galleries to dip into. We didn't even get time to go to the Abbey but there are some fantastic views across the vale in the park area next to the Abbey entrance. A really friendly small market town, which even has an excellent curry house (Chutneys) which was an unexpected bonus.

This is the most beautiful place you can imagine - the walk around the lake, dropping into the various buildings and grottoes, is breathtaking. All I can say is you really must visit.

A wonderful must in Dorset. Great gardens and interesting house. Well worth a visit.

Located on the edge of the beautiful parkland of the Fonthill Estate, this country pub offers good food and lovely gardens to sit and enjoy. Parking is available and the nearby Fonthill Lakes are worth a stroll around before dining.

Listen to lions roar and watch giraffes tower over the landscapes. At Longleat Safari Park little kids and big kids alike will fall under the magical spell of the wild. Go on a jungle cruise then hop over to Penguin Island before hedging your bets in the biggest hedge maze in Britain. A wonderful day of adventure awaits.

Fantastic for all ages

There is something here for every member of the family, and you can easily spend two days. The food outlets/shops etc are on the pricey side, but in fairness you do expect that at this type of attraction.

You won't see everything in one day

Grand house and attractions together with a drive through Safari park. Expensive to get in but once paid you have a passport for a week. You can even save up your Tesco clubcard points and get in for free! The house is interesting to look around and there are usually people in traditional dress doing role play with old cars and traditional old toys where your children can play. There is a maze and lot and lots of activites for children of all ages to do. The Safari park is brilliant, you get to see all your favourite animals in natural surroundings instead of in cages - but beware of the monkeys who will damage your car! A great day out and you won't see everything in one day.

Pythouse Kitchen Garden (2 ¾ miles)

A stunning 18th century walled garden which provides homegrown produce for the restaurant. Lunch is served either in the garden or restaurant daily and dinner on a Friday and Saturday only. It's better to book as it is a popular spot.

Chutney's Restaurant (6 ¾ miles)

A well established Indian restaurant serving both traditional and contemporary cuisine. A take-away service is available and booking is recommended.

Hidden gem

Definitely worth a visit, gets very busy at weekends so go early! Plenty of choice on the menu, beautifully cooked chef's specials, polite service, just what you need. My husband ordered 'off menu' and they were happy to oblige.
