Milton Abbas and the chalk downs


Autumn at Milton Abbey Kev WestmancottIf you want to know why West Country Beef and Lamb taste so good, you can take a cycle around the route which includes the Piddle Valley.

This is classic Dorset Downs countryside with chalk downlands producing long growing seasons and wildflower rich grass perfect for rearing the lamb and cattle that are offered on many a Dorset plate.


The same area is home to numerous cherry orchards, look out for the beautiful blossom in May and then quench your thirst with some of the gloriously coloured juice available from local sellers. If you fancy a glass of something stronger, this route takes you past award winning Langham Estate, a 30 acre vineyard producing world class sparkling wine.
