Poundbury Food and Arts Festival

Published: Wednesday 25th Sep 2019

We attended the Poundbury Food and Arts Festival earlier this year, we are always looking for new ways to promote our gorgeous cottages in Dorset and what a better way than spending a day in sunny Poundbury handing out goodies to holidaymakers and locals!

The event itself was so well organised, from arriving and setting up our stand everyone was so friendly and helpful. I even got the chance to have a little look around myself, the food stalls were so tempting with everything from chocolate brownies to locally produced gin! It’s fair to say I came home stuffed with delicious local food and drink.

From looking around you could see the craft stalls were bustling too, the lady next to us was making bug hotels to promote green spaces for wildlife which children absolutely loved. While other traders were selling paintings, homewares and handmade gifts.

The event was hugely successful for us, everyone was really interested in Wyke Dorset Cottages and wanted to learn more about our offering of holiday cottages in Weymouth, Dorchester and Bridport for either themselves or family and friends visiting the area. We have so many enquiries about our cottages being pet-friendly, which luckily a lot of them are!

We can't wait for next year's event.
