Surrounding local area

Snowdrop Cottage is located in the picturesque village of Purse Caundle, which can be found between the market town Sherborne and the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury. Well worth a visit, Sherborne is popular for its ‘Old’ Castle, ‘New’ Castle and its beautiful abbey but is also a great place to potter around the gift boutiques or enjoy some of the local delights at the selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants on offer. Steeped in history and tradition, Shaftesbury is famous for Gold Hill home to the Hovis advertisement and as the setting of ‘Shaston’ in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles.

Visit the ancient and breathtaking Stourhead, just twenty minutes from Snowdrop Cottage. Stourhead is at the heart of a 2,650 acre estate where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for nature conservation. A highlight of the South West, the World Heritage Site at Stonehenge is less than an hour away. The true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation has been lost in the mists of time, and it is this mystery which ensures Stonehenge never fails to impress.

Don’t forget your buckets and spades. The nearest beach is fifty minutes away at the traditional seaside resort of Weymouth. Days out enjoying Dorset’s Jurassic coastline stretching from the Isle of Purbeck with its many private and secluded bays to fossil hunting at Lyme Regis are within convenient driving distance.
