Described as a "blissful escape" we couldn't agree more! Hawkchurch Resort and Spa is indeed a delightful Haven nestled amongst trees and with amazing views over the Axe Valley. You can really switch off and relax here especially with the help of the New Luxury Spa. Or you might prefer to venture out and explore this gorgeous area of South Devon - there is so much to see and do here.
The lodges themselves are luxurious and opulent. The Premier Lodges such as the Quinn Premier and the Austen Premier come with private outdoor hot tubs. The Quinn Premier is a fabulous retreat for couples with one double bedroom and a fresh modern interior, perfect for romantic breaks. The Austen Premier sleeps up to 8 so would be a great choice for larger parties.
Dorset is full of attractions from theme parks to the fantastic Monkey World. Bovington Tank Museum and the sub tropical gardens at Abbotsbury are also great ideas for days out. In the summer the beaches in the Dorset area are lovely too. This area is blessed with outstanding views and opportunities for outdoor pursuits all year round.
Monkey World is not only a local attraction but the work they carry out is amazing. Rescuing and rehabilitating monkeys and assisting governments around the world to stop the smuggling of primates are just some of the purposes of the centre. You get to see the primates themselves many of which have become famous from appearing on the TV show Monkey World - a documentary about this place. Open year round we think this is one of best attractions in Dorset and you even get the chance to adopt a monkey if you choose.
This family orientated museum is dedicated to Teddy Bears both old and new Edward Bear and his family of people sized bears are one of the main attractions. You can buy teddy bear gifts from the quaint shop including top notch brands. The Steiff Teddy Bear and Merrythought bears are very popular. Open 7 days a week all year round (except 25th and 26th December) this is a perfect all weather place to visit.
Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park is a magical place to visit with grand gardens and plenty of animals to meet. From goats and ponies to alpacas and pot bellied pigs this attraction is excellent value for money. You can feel free to explore the grounds too which are especially lovely on sunny days. You will see majestic floral displays, stone terraces, a temple and even a lake.
