Chepstow & the Dewstow Garden & Grottoes

Tuesday 7th May

£21.00pp inclusive

Dewstow Gardens & Grottoes is one of the lesser well known attractions in South Wales, but also one of the most interesting. The gardens are a wonderful place to wander in themselves, with beautifully landscaped paths and decorative beds, waterfalls and pools and beneath all this, a labrynth of tunnels and grottoes.

With a lovely presented cafe for that all important tea and cake!

Chepstow, which means marketplace in Old English, offers relaxed, niche shopping in arty surroundings. Lined with handsome Georgian and Victorian buildings, the heart of town was made even more appealing in the mid-2000s. An award-winning scheme added pedestrian areas and intriguing stone walls and sculptures, inspired by local lore.

Dorchester & Max Gate National Trust

Wednesday 15th May

£15.00 NT member
£22.00pp Non member

Dorchester – Dorchester provides the location for many of the county’s leading museums, including the Dorset County Museum and the Keep Military Museum. Dorset’s county town is home to some of the finest local attractions alongside excellent places to eat and also enjoys a rich history dating back as far as the Iron Age.

Max Gate National Trust

Atmospheric Victorian home designed by Thomas Hardy
Max Gate, an austere but sophisticated town house a short walk from the town centre of Dorchester, was the home of Dorset’s most famous author and poet Thomas Hardy. Hardy, who designed the house in 1885, wanted to show that he was part of the wealthy middle classes of the area, to reflect his position as a successful writer, and to enable him to enter polite society. The house was named after a nearby tollgate keeper called Mack.

Many of Hardy’s possessions were dispersed before we acquired the house, but we’ve furnished the rooms for you to enjoy the spaces he created to write and live in. He wrote some of his most famous novels here, including Tess of the d’Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure, as well as much of his poetry.

You will find the garden much as it was originally planned, with high walls and large trees encircling the property to preserve Hardy’s privacy. The sundial, designed by Hardy, was erected in his memory.
