Great Places To Visit In The West Country

When the days are short and the weather is less than ideal, it’s very easy to lose sight of what a wonderful country we live in. Our lives are all so busy, especially at the moment and it is easy to carry out our daily routines without stopping to appreciate all of the incredible scenery and wildlife that we have right on our doorstep.

The team at Taylor & Co are all passionate about where they live and it didn't take much persuading to get them to contribute their favourite West Country haunts for this article! Let us know what your favourite places are, we love a hidden gem!

Hambledon Hill

This iron age hill fort is a well-known Dorset landmark and part of the National Trust. The perfect place for a walk and to enjoy the view of the surrounding countryside.

Stourhead House and Gardens

This glorious National Trust estate located just of the A303 just never gets old. From the historic stately home to the gardens that you can lose yourself in for a whole day, Stourhead is a great day out for all the family.

Studland beach and Old Harry Rocks

The entire Jurassic coastal path around Dorset is a firm favourite with the whole Taylor & Co team but Studland Beach and Old Harry’s Rocks are one of our favourites! Studland Beach is dog friendly all year round, unlike a lot of Dorset beaches, and is well known for sunbathing, paddle boarding and kayaking in the summer months.

White Sheet Down

White Sheet Down is a popular walking location located just outside Mere. Although initially it can be quite a steep climb, the views from the top are well worth it!

Kingston Lacy

Kingston Lacy, a National Trust property that is located just outside Wimborne, is another great day out. The house is historic and elegant; a great place to take visitors. The gardens are also popular with plenty of walking trails to loose yourself in.
