With thatched cottages, wisteria-adorned tea rooms and quaint narrow lanes, Abbotsbury offers a true taste of English village life. Here you can sip real ale in a historic beamed pub, get fresh baguettes from the bakery or browse handmade crafts at the gallery. It’s a slower pace of life that offers total recuperation from the usual day-to-day.
Yet when you’re ready for an adventure you’ll find a choice of attractions nearby. Hundreds of mute swans nest at Abbotsbury Swannery, a managed colony where you can see the graceful birds raise and nurture their heart-meltingly fluffy cygnets. Feeding time is a real highlight!
Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens is filled with amazing natural attractions too. Wander its lush pathways and you’ll be taken on a tour of the globe, from the Himalayas to the Mediterranean. The unique and exotic plants, flowers and trees you’ll encounter along the way will have you spellbound.
