Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Shaftesbury, Wiltshire to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Lord of the Manor If you can tear yourself away from your own country retreat then a visit to some of the other country houses in the area is a must; Old Wardour Castle, Wilton House, Shaftesbury Abbey and Stourhead Estate are to name but a few.

Country Calling Lovers of country pursuits have a whole host of activities to look forward to on a break in Wiltshire, from horse riding to fishing and even hot air ballooning across the rolling hills.

Tee Up Rushmore Golf Club is just seven miles away and warmly welcomes day visitors. The course is suitable for all levels, there is no handicap required. Don't let the far-reaching country views distract you from getting a hole in one!

Hovis Hill The quaint cottages and golden cobbles of Gold Hill are what attracted Ridley Scott to use it for his famous Hovis Bread television advertisement. Still today, the area is quite the epitome of rural charm and bygone days.

Blooming Marvellous Garden lovers will relish day trips to one or more of the delightful garden estates across Wiltshire and Dorset. Heale Gardens set beside the River Avon has eight acres of beauty to explore, whilst you can pick up your very own garden addition at Knoll Gardens and Estate! Discover the romantic valley gardens at Mapperton House, which are just beautiful.

All Creatures Great and Small The whole family will enjoy a day out at the renowned Longleat Safari Park; see their website for a full calendar of events, from a summer safari to their festival of light and ice skating rink in the winter. Try something a little different and head out for the evening to watch the wildlife from purpose-built hides, where the fortunate among you might spot badgers, owls, rabbits and foxes.
