Would you like to experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of truffle hunting with dogs? Follow our truffle hounds through the woods and experience the surge of excitement as they locate this edible treasure. We offer truffle hunting experience days in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. These comprise:
- Introductory talk on truffles
- 2 hours truffle hunting
- Afternoon tea including sampling of a truffle dish
Places on our truffle hunting experience days are £165 per person. You can book truffle hunting gift vouchers here.
Our West Dorset days start and end between Dorchester and Yeovil. This is deep in Dorset’s beautiful countryside, yet only 30 minutes from the spectacular Jurassic Coast. So, why not make a weekend of it and enjoy more of the area’s many sights and culinary delights. Our West Wiltshire site is near the beautiful city of Salisbury yet only two and a half hours from central London. The North Hampshire site is near Basingstoke, approximately one and a half hours drive from central London or is reachable in under an hour by train from Waterloo and a 15 minute walk. At all locations, the days start at 10 AM and end at around 4:30 – 5 PM.
If you have any questions about these days please check the “Truffle Hunting FAQ” tab above and contact us.
Please note that truffle hunting will require walking on some steep slopes (Dorset and Wiltshire sites, the Hampshire site is flat) and although we will hunt on sites where we have previously found truffles, finding them cannot be guaranteed.

And the client acknowledges that it is reasonable for such penalties to arise, given the need for The English Truffle Company to make preparations for a truffle hunting experience day substantially in advance of the day.
