Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Cranborne Chase is a chalk plateau in central southern England, straddling the counties Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. This nationally designated AONB covers 380 square miles of countryside overlapping the boundaries of Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset.

Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life to wild open spaces, beautiful chalk down land, and ancient woods rich in history and wildlife. Experience dramatic views from chalk ridgeways and visit picturesque villages unchanged by time, historic churches, ancient hill-forts, and charming country pubs. Visit the beautiful Nadder Valley region stretching from Wilton near Salisbury to Shaftesbury, with the friendly village of Tisbury with its own railway station at its heart. This outstanding area is a paradise for outdoor types like walkers and cyclists with miles of public rights of way, trails and easy access to all the major attractions…
