Dorset

A rural and picturesque county in the south of England, Dorset is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a timeless charm, pretty villages, country lanes and a fabulous stretch of 200 million year-old coastline known as The Jurassic Coast.

In fact The Jurassic Coast has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its ancient geology and is of course a great place for wonderful views over the English Channel and cliff-top walks.

Dorset has wonderful walking country which is a great way to appreciate the unspoilt beauty of this region, or you could maybe take to the quiet country roads and off road cycle ways. It’s a place to kick back and relax with lots of traditional country pubs and fine restaurants to discover.

The seaside towns of Bournemouth and Weymouth come highly recommended with lovely beaches and plenty of fresh sea air. You can reach the beach at Swanage via the heritage railway; it’s one of the best ways to soak up your surrounds and ensure complete relaxation. With stops at Corfe Castle and the small sleepy oasis of Harman''s Cross, it’s also one of the best ways to get a unique perspective of Dorset’s many attractions, and a true feel for its unspoiled beauty.

Also of note is Brownsea Island which offers a number of attractions for visitors, including lush woodland, an indigenous red squirrel population and a 16th century castle. For a great family day out visit Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre at Wareham where you’ll find over 250 rescued monkeys and apes providing plenty of entertainment and education.

Dorset is renowned for its varied landscape and is suitable for all sorts of different holidays. Its long coastline is a perfect for cliff top walks and stunning sea views and the region’s beaches are ideal for families who simply want to unwind on the sand or get active with surfing and sailing readily available; along with some expert tuition for those who fancy getting their feet wet! Then again, if you just want somewhere to relax and soak up the beautiful English countryside, you’ll be equally well served by what a cottage holiday in Dorset has to offer.

    Within 3 miles of the beach, this Grade II listed, thatched former barn offers spacious, very comfortable accommodation and a good range of facilities, including its own indoor heated swimming pool and games room. Sympathetically converted and very well equipped, it has its own lawned area and patio, and is surrounded by lovely countryside. The ancient town of Bridport
    (2 miles), once famous for its rope-making industry, was Thomas Hardy’s ‘Port Bredy’, and holds a twice-weekly market in its broad streets. At West Bay (3 miles) there are fishing trips and rowing boats for hire. At Seaton (6 miles), the lush Winniford Valley opens to an unspoilt beach of golden shingle, shelving steeply to sand at low tide. To the west of the beach, the Dorset Coast Path climbs to Golden Cap – at 626ft the highest point on the southern coast, with superb views along the coastline. The National Trust owns 2,000 acres of land here, offering 15 miles of footpaths for walkers. Ten miles away is the attractive seaside town of Lyme Regis. Jane Austen’s novel Persuasion gives a good picture of the town in the early 19th-century, and its history is displayed in the local museum. The ancient town of Dorchester (14 miles), built on the site of the Roman town, has much of historical interest: the remains of a Roman town house and a mosaic in Colliton Park, the old county court where the Tolpuddle Martyrs were tried, and Thomas Hardy’s study in the Dorset County Museum.

    National Trust Holiday Cottage


    Portland House is a wonderful Grade II listed, detached, Mediterranean-style villa built in 1935. It is situated in 2 acres of enclosed gardens and has stunning views overlooking Portland Harbour and the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Furnished in Art Deco style reflecting that period, it contains some beautiful original features and period furniture, reminiscent of times past. It makes excellent use of the natural slope, maximising exposure to the fine, south-facing views and has two broad terraces (one above the other), with most rooms having French windows opening out on to them. Seven bedrooms make this gracious villa an ideal place for families and friends to meet up and enjoy a great location for a reunion - perhaps wining and dining on the terraces and simply watching time pass by.
    Within easy driving distance is Weymouth with its many restaurants, shops, sandy beach and other attractions that children will love. Weymouth Sea Life Centre is a must, as well as the Weymouth Tower with its panoramic views of the bay. Water sports also abound in Weymouth and Portland from yachting, boating, windsurfing and fishing. For other exciting days out, take a trip to France or the Channel islands, or simply enjoy some scenic walking and fossil hunting along Chesil Beach and the Jurassic Coast.
    Poole, Bournemouth, Dorchester, Bridport and West Bay are all within easy driving distance, as are family attractions such as Monkey World and the Tank Museum. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
