In the glorious West Country sits the stunning county of Dorset. Its coastline is the world famous Jurassic coast, a Natural World Heritage site with beautiful beaches, ancient cliffs and craggy caves all providing an excellent stomping ground for holidaymakers. The area is perfect for those looking for activity, with a huge choice of fishing, swimming, kayaking, caving. cycling etc, and perfect, too, for those in search of rural idylls, spectacular scenery, cosy country pubs and some of the best food in the U.K The County of Dorset resonates with the romance of Thomas Hardy, Jane Austin and Daphne du Maurrier all of whom used it as a backdrop in their works.
Dorset enjoys some of the best weather in the U.K. as the West Country bathes in the gentle warmth of the Gulf Stream. It has green, rolling hills, romantic country lanes and a starkly beautiful coastline. The Vale of Marshwood is a very unique and special place still farmed in much the same way, with its ancient small fields, as it was during the Iron Age. The Vale's remoteness brings a level of peaceful tranquility that is hard to find in England today and, with it, some excellent star-gazing on clear nights. It is hard to believe it is only 5 miles from the famous Jurassic Coast and only 20 minutes from the bustling market town of Bridport and the tourist must-see resort of Lyme Regis. The area abounds with things to see from fine English country houses and Roman hill forts to Sealife centres and wild animal parks.
