Dorset is one of the most beautiful counties in England and has been the inspiration for generations of writers, poets and artists with its rolling hills and spectacular Jurassic coastline.
April Cottage & Lapland Lodge are located in the tranquil hamlet of Harmans Cross with the main local attractions being Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove, Swanage Steam Railway (Harmans Cross Railway station 5 – 10 minutes walking from Cottage), The Jurassic Coast, Brownsea Island and the famous Studland Beach. The nearby seaside resort of Swanage with its Old Harry Rocks are a popular place to visit and The Purbecks provide bikers and hikers with some of the most spectacular trails and walks starting right at our doorstep.
We are also within easy reach of Bournemouth and Poole with its quay and natural harbour, Weymouth with its Sea Life Park and Dorchester with its museums, famous Wednesday Market and Thomas Hardy’s birthplace. Blandford is another nearby attraction with its Hall & Woodhouse Brewery and the Royal Signals Museum.
Wimborne can also be worth a visit with its market and the old market town of Wareham is not far away with its scenic river offering boat cruises to Poole and Brownsea Island.
The famous tank museum is a short drive from Harmans Cross in Bovington, which offers a fantastic historical outing for young and old. Monkey World is another venue worthy of a visit and is hugely popular with all generations.
