Rich History - combine with visit to Corfe Castle

Kingston Lacy (now National Trust-owned) was the home of Lady Mary Bankes who 'retired' to the house as part of the settlement of the second siege of Corfe Castle during the English Civil War. The Bankes family owned large tracts of land in Dorset, including the Studland Bay area, also now part of the National Trust. Kinsgton Lacy is a relatively modest stately home but is rich in history and the extensive grounds and gardens are a delight.

Kingston Lacy

Our trip to Kingston Lacy was a highlight of our west country visit. The gardens were some of the best in a national trust site from our experience .The house was also one of the best we have visited.
