Laurie’s End is a holiday cottage in the heart of the market town of Wimborne, Dorset, and is just minutes walk from its many delights: the Minster, Model Town, Tivoli Theatre, Priest’s House Museum, Wimborne Market, shops and cafes: yet it’s away from noise bar birdsong.

There’s lovely cycling too: try National Cycle Network route 25 to National Trust Kingston Lacy.
