Christmas craft and food fair
2021 saw Hartland Stud’s inaugural Christmas fair – which was a great success, so look out for next year’s, which is likely to be even bigger and better.
Expect a great range of stalls from artisan makers both locally in Purbeck and also further afield in Dorset – perfect for finding that elusive, unique Christmas present.
When you’ve finished browsing the artwork, jewellery and handmade gifts, kick back with a mulled cider around the bonfire and grab some freshly-cooked hot food and festive treats.
Location and how to get there
Postcode for directions: BH20 5DU
Turn into Soldier’s Road, where you’ll pass Lenctenbury Farm on your left (which is an excellent spot for fruit-picking in the Sumer, its pumpkin patch at Halloween, and high-quality, non-drop Christmas tree in late November/early December).
Hartland’s heathland with fantastic walking routes flank the road either side, and the entrance to both Hartland Stud and Camp Hartland is just a few hundred metres down Soldier’s Road on your left.
You can also approach from the opposite direction via Arne Road.
