The West Country region
Dorset has a varied landscape featuring broad elevated chalk downs, steep limestone ridges and low-lying clay valleys. Over half the county is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three-quarters of its coastline is a World Heritage Site that features notable landforms such as Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door.
There are no motorways in Dorset but a network of A roads cross the county and two railway main lines connect to London. Dorset has ports at Poole, Weymouth and Portland and an international airport. The county has a variety of museums, theatres and festivals, and is host to one of Europe's largest outdoor shows. It is the birthplace of Thomas Hardy, who used the county as the principal setting of his novels, and William Barnes, whose poetry celebrates the ancient Dorset dialect.
Our lodge is in an ideal location to explore the Jurassic coastline, which is just minutes away . The World Heritage site at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, with the lovely locals pubs are well worth a visit.
The lodge is in Hardy country: Thomas Hardy was born in the local area and lived out his days in Dorchester. A visit to his home in Higher Bockhampton is well worth a trip.
T E Lawrence (of Arabia) made Moreton his home in his later years and is buried at the cemetery there. His home is now owned by the National Trust. The village of Moreton also has a beautiful church and a fabulous tearoom - the former schoolhouse.
Weymouth is just 15 minutes away and has a stunning sandy beach - perfect for children of all ages. The old harbour has lovely pubs and antiques shops. Sealife Centre is a perfect place for an afternoon visit.
Monkey World is only about 10 minutes away and it is such a pleasure to see the rescued primates enjoying their happy new home.
No visit to the area can be complete without a visit to The Smugglers Inn at Osmington Mills - such a stunning location.
Corfe Castle is one of the prettiest villages in Dorset and it's only 30 minutes away on the Purbeck peninsula.
