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.

Within a short drive you can be in the heart of Lyme Regis with its picturesque harbour, sandy beach, renowned Cobb where you can fossil hunt, fish, swim, go boating or simply wander around the quaint shops and restaurants in this characterful resort. The Heritage coast itself has many smaller seaside resorts you can visit, stretching from Exmouth in the west, or all the way to Weymouth and Portland in the east, taking the scenic coast road from West Bay and Bridport, with its superb views overlooking the Chesil Beach. There is a wealth of family activities and attractions to enjoy, ranging from the donkey sanctuary, River Cottage, Forde Abbey and Gardens, and Broadwindsor Craft Centre, to Crealey Adventure Park near Exeter, and south Somerset, with its Fleet Air Arm Museum, all of which are within easy reach. You will certainly have plenty to do - perhaps taking the dogs walking along the coastal path and climbing up Golden Cap, the highest point in the south of England. On your return, enjoy relaxing barbecue outside. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The Farmhouse is a detached, Grade II listed, 17th-century Tudor brick house and sits next to the owner’s golf club, hotel and spa. This large, well-presented and equipped house offers an ideal place for a family holiday or a short break with friends. It has its own private drive and garden, and guests have use of the facilities at the golf club and spa (no children under 16 years). The spa has a swimming pool, hot tub, gym, steam room, Jacuzzi, spa treatments and hairdresser (some facilities at extra cost, recommended to book ahead if you are considering to have a spa treatment while you are staying). The championship golf course is 6,904 yards, par 71, and is set in 160 acres. It also has driving range, academy course, chipping and pitching green. The club house has a bar and restaurant which has live music most evenings and Sunday lunchtimes.
    Nearby, enjoy the Ferndown, Stour and Forest Trail and Stour Valley Way. Further afield are many coastal and inland footpaths, including the Dorset Coastal Path where you can enjoy the Jurassic coastline. The local area has two popular parks, Avon Heath Country Park and Moors Valley Country Park. The nearest traffic-free cycle paths are in Hurn Forest and Castleman Trail. There are many all over the New Forest National Park, where wild ponies roam freely among miles of heathland. There are also many other places of interest to visit within the area, such as the village of Burley, Exbury Gardens and Beaulieu Motor Museum. Regular ferries to the Isle of Wight depart from the famous royal yachting town of Lymington. Bournemouth is close by with beach, well kept town gardens and trips on the Bournemouth Eye, which rises high above the town to give the most amazing panoramic views over the whole area. At the foot of the pier is the fascinating Oceanarium where the whole family can discover life beneath the waves.
