National Route 25 of the National Cycle Network links with National Route 24 at Longleat stately home to the south of Frome. It runs south through Gillingham and Poole to Bournemouth on the Dorset coast.

The route is open and signed from Longleat to Bournemouth but watch for short incomplete sections around Stourpaine and Blandford Forum, and in Wimbourne Minster. The route includes a traffic-free section of the North Dorset Trailway near Shillingstone, and a long traffic-free section from Wimborne Minster to Poole.
