Gorgeous lodges surrounded by lush green countryside. Shaftesbury Lodges would suit anyone looking for a stylish getaway in a peaceful location. Both the lodges and setting are luxurious with a gym and fitness suite on site.
Choose to stay in a range of lodges such as the Saxon Lodge which sleeps 8 or the Hardys Lodge which sleeps 4. The modern design and open plan living would suit families and couples. Some lodges offer lovely outdoor decking areas with furniture to make the most of the outdoors and spectacular views.
Explore the local area of Dorset and you'll find something for everyone. Family friendly resorts are dotted about and also Blue Flag beaches and stunning countryside. For a fantastic day out we recommend Longleat Safari Park around 12 miles from Shaftesbury Lodges where you can see some amazing animals in a Safari Park setting.
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.
