Find the larder of the aristocracy that’s now a gold mine of local food producers


Dorset Deer by Emma GrantPut your bicycle to one side and take a stroll around the Cranborne Estate to experience the true taste of North Dorset’s fertile landscape.

What was once a hunting lodge and larder to the aristocracy for over 1000 years is now a magnet for an eclectic mix of food and drink producers.

From the Sixpenny Brewery to makers of Chalke Valley Cheese, a talented “cakesmith” to a traditional baker, there is so much to tempt the palette and some lovely hostelries like the Inn at Cranborne or La Fosse where you can even stay for a couple of nights to truly appreciate all the delicious food on offer across Cranborne.
