               Admission to Beaulieu and Stourhead

Day 1 Sunday

We drive to the New Forest by late morning for a long stay at Beaulieu. Edward, Lord Montagu, who passed away in 2015, believed that Britain’s great houses and gardens should be enjoyed by all and has made this possible for well over 60 years. The National Motor Museum is a charity with a world famous collection of vehicles and associated motoring archives. The Palace House became a family home in 1867: it was back in 1204 when King John gave land to Cistercian monks for an Abbey. From here to Bournemouth for dinner, bed & breakfast.


Day 2 Monday

After breakfast leave for Mere for our included visit to Stourhead. In the house see inspirational paintings, a unique Regency library, Chippendale furniture and much more. Outside, in 2,650 landscaped acres, are lakes, temples, towering trees and immaculate lawns. Leave Wiltshire in the afternoon, crossing Salisbury Plain on the way home to Essex.


B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

The famous family visitor attraction of Beaulieu is in the New Forest, its history being traceable back to the early 13th century when the Abbey was established. Since 1952, when Palace House and Garden became one of the first ‘stately homes’ to admit visitors, it has developed as the National Motor Museum following the original modest display of five veteran cars on the entrance hall. ‘A living work of art’ was how Stourhead was described 250 years ago. Everything from Palladian architecture, rare furniture, classical temples and mystical grottoes wait to be explored in this large Wiltshire estate.


DURLEY DEAN HOTEL  In the Westcliff area of Bournemouth, the hotel is within easy reach of beaches, parks and shops. It is a Victorian townhouse which has had major refurbishments in recent years. All bedrooms are en suite with tea/coffee making, hairdryers and TV.
