To give you a kick-start in exploring, we recommend the Broad Chalke and Fifield Downs circular route. Explore the rolling chalk downs within Cranborne Chase AONB, with plenty of nature and glorious views along the way. With its thatched cottages, steep green hills, chalk streams and watercress beds it’s easy to see how Broad Chalke made the Sunday Times’ best places to live list 2023. Perhaps this is why, for such as small village, it’s had a surprising number of famous residents such as the author Sir Terry Pratchett, former Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden, photographer Sir Cecil Beaton and musician Toyah Willcox.
