Well March roared in like a lion with snow and ice – an almost unprecedented event down here in south-west Dorset! Let us hope the old adage proves true ‘in like a lion and out like a lamb’!

Lambing is well underway, the snowdrops are almost over and the daffodils are already blooming, providing the promise that Spring really is here.

On Saturday 31st March, The Subtropical Gardens are offering a Food Fair with 25 stands showcasing Dorset’s produce. There is a reduced entry fee of £5 per adult (under 16s free) for this event, which also includes entry to the Subtropical Gardens to see the amazing Spring colour.

We welcome you to stay in Abbotsbury for a very special Easter weekend break. There are several lovely Bed and Breakfast accommodations available in the village, full details of which can be found on this website.
