Our campsite is near to Minterne, home to the lovely Minterne House & Gardens. Minterne House & Gardens is a stunning country house in the heart of Dorset boasting a spectacular garden that has been featured on BBC’s Gardeners World. To compliment the rhododendrons and the distinctive handkerchief tree, spring bulbs are now appearing in the Himalayan Garden.
The house is an attractive private residence that has been home to both the Digby and Churchill family before being rebuilt in the 1900’s. The house that currently stands on the estate was designed by award winning architect Leonard Stokes and is just superb.
Entry to the beautiful garden is just £6 and children under 12 go free! The gardens are open from 1st February to 9th November from 10am – 6pm.
