Exploring

Out and About

There’s plenty to see in the area!

Whether exploring by car, foot or bicycle, there’s plenty to see and do.

The BBC website has details of a walk along the River Stour by the house which Thomas Hardy once rented.
Our local market towns are featured in Hardy’s books: Sturminster Newton (Stourcastle), Sherborne (Sherton Abbas) and Shaftesbury (Shaston).

Our secluded camping and caravan site is the perfect base from which to explore the region.

For couples wanting an alternative to the camping experience in Stourton Caundle, check out this lovely village hideaway on Airbnb. Still within reach of The Trooper Inn!
