The Dorset region

We are situated on the Dorset / Devon border in an area of outstanding natural beauty very close to the Jurassic coast a world heritage site. A soft climate with lovely dark skies to view the stars at night we often have very warm spring and autumns which really extend the holiday season. We are now an area with excellent cuisine, e.g. River Cottage HQ and Canteen, Hix fish restaurant in Lyme Regis and the Wild Garlic masterchef restuarant. Lots of historic houses and sites to visit. Riding, walking, sailing, swimming and country life a real speciality. Best place to throw away the busy life of the cities etc
