A stroll along the seaside

With a plethora of seaside locations throughout the Dorset coastline, from the popular and busy Bournemouth beach to award winning beaches at Christchurch and the rolling dunes on offer at Sandbanks you truly can take your pick of some of the best beaches on offer in the country.


Opt for the smaller, more secluded coves for a more relaxing and romantic stroll.

Hot Air Ballooning over Bournemouth

Take to the skies and see all the Dorset countryside and coastline has to offer in this unique bird eye’s view. With the chance to record and capture some amazing footage of this unique coastline, this is an experience to be remembered. Flights are available to pre- book from a variety of locally based companies. Weekend flights are extremely popular so do remember to book early to avoid disappointment!

Pamper Yourself

Melt away the wedding day nerves with a relaxing visit to one of our local spas, such as The Harbour Spa in Christchurch Harbour.


Alternatively, if you would rather not venture too far in the immediate aftermath of your wedding, why not visit our own Spa & Fitness Suite for some in house pamper treatments. Options available to book include Indian Head Massage, Reflexology to soften and relax those post-wedding night dancing toes and Hot Stone Massage. Follow this up with a swim and invigorating dip in our heated Jacuzzi.

Go Back in Time

Visit Lulworth Castle and prepare to step back in time. Originating from the 17th Century, Lulworth Castle and Estate draws tourists from across the globe. Within the castle grounds itself, there are many attractions including the adjacent deer park, Castle Tower and Tea Rooms, children’s play area and beautiful countryside and woodland walks.


Included within the estate are the simply breath-taking Lulworth Cove and famous Durdle Door rock formation – two iconic points of interest and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Designated part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, these two are a definite on your bucket list of things to do whilst visiting Dorset.
