Nine-hole golf course

General

  • Spacious countryside site in the Blackmore Vale
  • A 15-minute drive from Shaftesbury and 20 from Sherborne
  • Fishing lake, golf course and clubhouse with bar, restaurant and wifi

Up for coarse fishing, fossil hunting, sea kayaking and a quick round of golf? Head over to Henstridge Golf and Leisure for quiet stays in the Somerset countryside surrounded by much fab stuff to do.

This peaceful and well-maintained site is a five-minute drive from the village of Henstridge and 15 minutes from the town of Shaftesbury. You might not get that far though, when there’s a coarse fishing lake on the site, along with a nine-hole golf course and a clubhouse with a bar and restaurant...

And how might your days here pan out? Perhaps a full English and a fortifying coffee or two before you amble over to the lake for a morning of landing carp, roach and tench… then maybe a bite of lunch before perfecting your swing on the driving range and the putting green, followed by a leisurely nine holes...? If all that sporting action in the outdoors has tired you out, put up your feet in the bar and watch someone else running about on the bigscreen TV.

If you do want to stretch your legs, it’s a 20-minute drive to Sherborne for tours of the ancient abbey and the museum, wanders round the castles old and new and maybe a spot of kayaking or fishing on the lake.

    Lovely location, nice to have a snall bar area and somewhere to eat if you would like. Nice and quiet fishing lake to walk around also. Very clean facilities with hot water that didn't run out like most places I've camped in.

    Disliked: 

    We simply picked the wrong night as wing and wheels was on in the air field next door and the music wasn't turned off till the early hours of the morning.

Local attractions

If you’re after ancient monuments, it’s half an hour’s drive from the site to the gigantic Cerne Abbas chalk figure and 50 minutes to Stonehenge.

For sights even older, the fossil-strewn Jurassic Coast is around an hour away, where you can combine kayak trips around the cliffs with amateur archaeology on the beaches at popular spots like Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, or walk sections of the South West Coast Path.

It’s a similar distance to bigger coastal towns like Weymouth, where aquariums and skate parks combine with wildlife walks round the RSPB Reserves of Radipole Lake and Lodmoor, or to Poole, where you can mix harbour cruises and seal-spotting sea safaris with the flumes, rides and slides of Splashdown waterpark.

Heading inland, Bath has been drawing the crowds since Roman times and is well worth the hour-long trip: tour the old Roman baths, take a dip, soak or steam in the spa waters yourself, and top it off by making a bespoke brew at Bath Gin distillery.

For cycling fans, the Bath Two Tunnels Circuit runs under and around the city on a 13-mile loop, while for those more fond of gentle strolls, few sites are prettier than the Prior Park Landscape Garden, designed by Capability Brown.

Must see

  • Stourhead House and Garden (8.9 miles)
  • Haynes International Motor Museum (9.3 miles)
  • Fleet Air Arm Museum (12.2 miles)
