Random Brown Sign of the Day - The Kingcombe Centre

I'm getting so many unique and amazing attractions signing up to The Brown Sign Way through the "I'm a brown-signed attraction, get me involved!" page on my website that I think it's time they were shared, so in their honour I'll pick one randomly every day and feature it in my new daily post called "Random Brown Sign of the Day". It won't be a normal blog about me doing a brown sign visit, it'll be more about how surprising and interesting these places are when you start finding out just a little bit about them, and hopefully inspire you (even more than you are already!) to get out there and follow brown signs just for fun and to discover all these cool places all for yourself.

My very first Random Brown Sign of the Day is The Kingcombe Centre in Dorset, and in their own words here's a little bit about them...

Kingcombe meadowsNestling at the heart of the peaceful hamlet of Lower Kingcombe in West Dorset, our educational charity offers an engaging array of natural history, archaeology, craft and art courses throughout the year.
Surrounded by 185 hectares (457 acres) of Dorset Wildlife Trust's Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve, the centre offers tranquillity in a landscape miraculously untouched by modern agricultural practices.

Delving into our exciting programme you will discover something for all ages and abilities from day to week-long activity holidays. We are renowned for our friendly hospitality, scrumptious food, environmental guest accommodation and as a flagship for sustainability.
Whether you join us on holiday, gain inspiration from a walk in the nature reserve, explore the Visitor's Centre or take refreshment at the Kingcombe Café, you are always guaranteed a warm welcome.
The Kingcombe Centre Café is now open every weekend and most days from 1 October – Easter (11.30-3.30) and Easter – 30 September (11.30 – 5.00). The Café will be closed for a short time over Christmas and the New Year.
