This year we are pleased to announce that out Christmas fair will be over two days Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November, and once again will be at Athelhampton House and Gardens.

We are always very excited to host such a fantastic event, with a huge range of culinary delights. Now in its 5th year, the fair aims to be a true celebration of Dorset.

DFD Christmas flier 2017 V4 Double 01We open our gates at 10am on both days where you will find over 50 stalls for you to explore throughout the day for you to sample both sweet and savoury delights. From home-baked cakes to vegan delicacies, there is something for everyone to call their new favorite food at Athelhampton this winter!

Once again will run the ever popular FREE park & ride. The Park & Ride will start at Dorset County Council, County Hall, eliminating the need for you to queue in traffic through the narrow roads of the nearby villages. Buses leave on the hour from 10am and return on the half hour from 11:30.

Entry to the fair includes the house and gardens making for a fantastically good value day out which is open to all.

So either before or after you shop take a walk around the stunning House and Gardens – take some time out from the food tents and soak up the views of our wonderfully historic Tudor House and beautifully landscaped topiary gardens. Athelhampton House is a manor house Dorset can be proud of, and we are proud to be hosting the Dorset Food and Drink Christmas Fair and welcoming you all through our gates!

We are embarking on the 2018 Guide. 

The guide again will include producers, cafes, restaurants, farm & specialist shops, cookery schools and more
