ENID BLYTON TRAIL DORSET

Enid Blyton was one of the most successful British authors of the twentieth century and wrote many books including The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree, Noddy and many more. She wrote more than 800 books and stories over 40 years, but still found time for three holidays a year in Dorset (specifically the Isle of Purbeck) for over twenty years. 

“I somehow feel more English for having seen those Dorset fields, surrounded by hedges basking in the sun said her character Julian from the Famous Five book ‘Five on Finniston Farm’.

When visiting Dorset, Enid and her family would often stay at the Grand Hotel.
