Stroll around the Model Villageexplore the Purbeck Hills and, if you’re feeling adventurous, ride a steam train to Swanage.

Barafundle Bay is a stunning remote location complete with an award-winning beach, guaranteed to make any visit a memorable one. With golden sands and crystal-clear water, this spot is one of Britain’s best beaches.

One of East Anglia’s most popular locations, Holkham Beach is so vast that you won’t be stuck trying to find a secluded spot. This stunning coastal spot offers an extensive dune system, which is filled with wildlife and beautiful offshore orchids, thistles and sea lavender. Our Porkless Pork Pie is a great meat-free treat to enjoy while you feel the sand between your toes.
