Portman Lodge, Blandford Forum, Dorset
Portman Lodge is the main wing and entrance into a large Victorian building originally known as St Martin's House.
The house has a private patio area for guest use. It is very pretty in the summer and suitable for quiet relaxation in the open air.
Blandford Forum is a compact Dorset market town (pop. Circa 8000) that lies 22 miles south-west of Salisbury and 15 miles north of Poole, a port on the south coast of England.
The surrounding countryside is typical of what anyone would expect who has read any Thomas Hardy novel.
Other attractions in the area include the Jurassic Coast, Monkey World, Bovington Tank Museum, Kingston Lacey House, Clouds Hill (home of Lawrence of Arabia) and Tolpuddle (of martyrdom fame). Also of historic interest, Corfe Castle is only 10 miles away on route to Swanage with its own attractions.
