One of the best things about living in Dorset is how there always seems to be somewhere new to discover. Despite only living about 30 minutes away, I’d never been to Highcliffe before, so my family and I took a short trip to explore the beach and beautiful castle.
The castle, home to Mr. Selfridge from 1916 to 1922, was initially constructed in 1831 by Charles Stuart. After a fire in 1967, work has been done to restore the castle to its former glory and is once again open for public viewing and can be used for weddings and other private events.
Walking around, it was really interesting to see the original brickwork in places and to imagine what it must have been like to live somewhere like this (I can take a guess… very nice!)
We then took a visit Highcliffe beach, which the castle overlooks. On a day like today the grounds looked absolutely beautiful. You wouldn’t think it’s nearly October!
