As an alternative to our Gardens of Somerset and Dorset holiday, we offer this stylish tour of the neighbouring counties which are home to a particularly rich selection of wonderful houses and gardens.

Tranquil private gardens are included here, such as The Old Vicarage in Shaftesbury, a delightful wildlife garden that bursts with colour, and The Old Rectory with its walled garden, kitchen garden and masses of roses. Larger and grander gardens are also featured, such as Mapperton House and Gardens, where we enjoy a cream tea, the large plantsman’s gardens at Horn Park with spectacular views across the Dorset countryside and East Lambrook Manor, recognised throughout the world as the ‘Home of English Cottage Gardening’. The highlight is a visit to Minterne, and former home of Sir Winston Churchill, where we enjoy a guided tour of the house and gardens in the company of current owner Lord Digby, with a private lunch also included. Join us as we tour Somerset and Dorset in style!

Tour highlights:

  • Lunch and guided tour of Minterne House and Gardens with Lord Digby
  • Exclusive access to the gardens and tour of Mapperton House followed by a cream tea
  • East Lambrook Manor Gardens, the home of the classic English Cottage Garden
  • Visits to the private gardens of the Old Vicarage, the Old Rectory and Horn Park
