The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club is a wonderfully traditional course set in the stunning surroundings of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Each hole is unique in design with its own set of spectacular views, looking out over Brownsea Island and the Solent.

A visit to this traditional golf course is a must for any golfers who are planning a golf break in the Dorset area, a course full of uniquely designed holes that pose a variety of challenges all while offering golfers stunning views of the surrounding area of natural beauty.

The course is built in a spectacular location on a high heathland plateau, which allows golfers to enjoy 360 degree panoramic views of the Solent, and out to the east across Poole Bay towards Bournemouth, and is set within a nature reserve that contains many rare plants and birds. Although the course runs quite short, the exposed location means that the winds will often come into play and the fairways and greens are very fast, combining to make this course a real challenge.

Monkey World is a fantastic day out for all the family!

The park is imaginatively laid out with large, enriching enclosures for the primates as well as plenty to be to be enjoyed by visitors of all ages. The whole family will be entertained with several food and drink outlets, a woodland walk, picnic areas, a children’s play area near the watering hole and an exciting adventure playground! With three groups of orang-utans, five species of gibbon, four groups of chimpanzees and 11 other species of monkeys and prosimians, including the Malagasy enclosure where you can walk with the free roaming lemurs, there are plenty monkey antics!

The Langham Estate is an incredible experience in the heart of Dorset.

At the heart of the Langham Estate sits the magnificent Bingham’s Melcombe manor house, Grade I listed and little changed since the reign of Edward VI. Acquired by John Langham in 1980, Bingham’s Melcombe became the centre point for the Langham Agricultural Enterprise, today comprising over 1,000 hectares.

The Langham vineyard was originally established by John Langham on a very small scale. In 2009 John’s son, Justin Langham, decided to develop his father’s rudimental vineyard into a commercial venture, and planted 30 acres of vines on their land at Crawthorne farm, a few miles from Bingham’s Melcombe.

The Langham Estate love to share their passion for what they do and welcome visitors to the estate throughout the year. Various types of tours are available and they also benefit from having a tasting room, shop and café on site. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of rural Dorset, it really is a special place to visit.
