Free Family Days Out in Dorset (that you may never have heard of…)

We ALL love them – a Grand Day Out, planned with care and excitement. Naturally any family day out requires a picnic, which must feature hard boiled eggs (don’t forget the foil twist of salt – unless you have a fancy-dancy travel salt & pepper shaker), an array of sandwiches (because one likes butter, one hates tuna, one currently refuses to eat anything but Tesco sandwich filler, and you’re the only one...
