Surrounded by rolling countryside on the banks of the Stour, our Blandford Forum holiday cottages are great for exploring Dorset, with attractions and amenities on tap.
Picture elegant streets lined with Georgian buildings - the town dates back to earlier times but the Great Fire of 1731 destroyed almost everything and so it was rebuilt. It's a lovely place to discover on foot - East, West and Salisbury Streets, the Corn Exchange, Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, Ryves Almshouses and the Great Fire Monument are just a few highlights. You'll also find inviting shops, galleries and a good choice of places to eat and drink. Thursdays and Saturdays are market days while the monthly farmers' market showcases top-class regional produce.
Enjoy a stroll along the river, perhaps with a picnic hamper on a warm, sunny day. Follow fashion from the 1730s to 1970s at Blandford Fashion Museum. Learn about local life and culture at the Blandford Museum. Don't miss a trip to the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford Camp, offering interactive exhibitions, code breaking secrets, fun trails and more. Quench your thirst and watch beer being made on a tour of the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery. Head out of town to the Compton Abbas Airfield, complete with Flying Museum and Falconry Centre. Take a walk amid glorious surroundings at Larmer Tree Gardens or Kingston Lacy (National Trust).
Or plan your cottage holiday in Blandford Forum around the Great Dorset Steam Fair, an extravaganza of steam exhibitions, rural displays, vintage vehicles, music and more.
