In mid-December I had the pleasure to go on another trip with the Blogger Programme Talent family. This time we visited the beautiful Dorset. Dorset is located in South West England on the English coast. Dorset has a varied landscape featuring broad elevated chalk downs, steep limestone ridges, low-lying clay valleys and stunning views all around.
We stayed at Kate and Toms The Lindens for the night. The Lindens is a stunning house that sleeps 18 people in Five-Star Gold comfort. This is a fabulous 18th century manor house renovated into a revelation. The Lindens is set within its own grounds in the charming Dorset village of East Lulworth, close to the spectacular Lulworth Cove and Jurassic Coast.
In the evening we gathered around the fireplace and enjoyed mince pies, drank mulled wine and exchanged Secret Santa gifts. The following day, Lulworth Tour took us to see the two biggest natural landmarks of the Jurassic Coast, England’s only natural world heritage site: Durdle Door, an ancient stone arch, and the layered cliffs at nearby Lulworth Cove.
In the afternoon we visited Lulworth Castle, which is a time fairy-tale castle once built to entertain royalty. The castle was gutted by fire on 29 August 1929 and was left as a roofless ruin, while the family built a new residence for themselves nearby. In the 1970s, restoration work began with the help of English Heritage. The restoration, finished in 1998, included a new roof and restoration of the surviving interior walls. However, no new internal walls or replacements for the destroyed upper floors were constructed. After the tour around the castle we had an afternoon tea, which was held in the castle’s basement.
I would like to thank the The Blogger Programme for organising this amazing tip to Dorset and all the brands involved for making our experience even more memorable and enjoyable.
