Things to see and do nearby

Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire

No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

Dorset Coast

Dorset is Thomas Hardy country - an appealing mixture of rolling heath land, secluded valleys, picturesque villages, great houses and estates, and a coastline awash with natural beauty. The spectacular Jurassic Coast is just one of the many wonders Dorset has to offer and has shaped the county?s history - from the rugged Isle of Purbeck and the sweeping Chesil Beach to the quaint charm of Lyme Regis and Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour. National Trust properties in Dorset include Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy and Clouds Hill once the cottage retreat of T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), while other attractions include the seaside resort of Bournemouth and the county town of Dorchester.

    Able to climb Golden Cap

    This was a return trip to St Gabriels which we have been visiting for 50 years - before it was a National Trust property. But the first time in the winter - we usually camp. It was a visit so that I could climb Golden Cap on my 70th birthday which I did. So we enjoyed the peace and the countryside - though there was rather too much mud this year!!

    Was made enjoyable because it is..

    A very special place, both the cottage and its location. Tranquil and set in the most beautiful countryside with access on foot to beaches with fossils, to hills, woods, lovely walks, pubs and villages.

    Wonderful experience

    We had a wonderful experience and we will certainly use a National Trust property again next year. Living in Norway, this was the perfect place to meet up with our family who live in Leicestershire. We became National Trust members during our stay and enjoyed Greenway, Montacute House, Kingston Lacy, Corfe Castle and Burton Bradstock. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and immediately walked to the top of Golden Cap, from this moment onwards the whole stay became special.
