Close to the centre of historic Shaftesbury, the Royal Chase revels in the surrounding glories of the Dorset countryside and the ample charms of Somerset, Wiltshire and Hampshire. Unspoiled, beautiful counties, offering a wide range of attractions plus an abundance of rural peace and tranquility. Those in the not-to-be-missed category include Longleat House and Safari Park, the outstanding National Trust property, Stourhead, a host of glorious public gardens and, of course, Shaftesbury's very own Gold Hill, the steep cobbled incline immortalised in that Hovis commercial.
