The West Country region
The spectacular Jurassic Coast in Dorset and East Devon is England's first natural World Heritage Site. This unique stretch of coastline sits amongst the ranks of the Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon as one of the wonders of the natural world. The coastline is world famous for its fossils. Chesil Beach, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are among the 'must see' locations along this spectacular 95 mile stretch of coastline.
Visit coastal towns such as Weymouth, Lyme Regis and Bridport with their mix of colourful harbours, sandy beaches and seaside fun, or head inland and discover our fascinating market towns.Enjoy unique shopping and farmers' markets, amazing architecture and plenty of places to eat out and sample the local produce.There aren't many areas that can claim a huge naked chalk giant, a coastline where you can follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs and the largest hillfort in Europe - but with the vast scope of Dorset's heritage you will discover these and much much more!
The Dorset landscape has long been the inspiration for many authors and poets and more recently for TV and film producers. Above all, this is Thomas Hardy country - ancient Wessex, home of the Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the D'urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. You will find many other famous literary associations across the area including Jane Austen, John Fowles, TE Lawrence and Enid Blyton.
There are some outstanding places to visit in Dorset where you can soak up the atmosphere of bygone eras. Major ancient and historic sites include the impressive Maiden Castle hillfort, Pilsdon Pen, Eggardon Hill and Hambledon and Hod Hills - the views alone are worth the steep climb! A steam train ride with Swanage Railway gives you unique views of Corfe Castle's imposing ruins.
Melbury Osmond is a beautiful Dorset village where Thomas Hardy's mother lived as a child. The village appears in his novel, “The Woodlanders” as “Little Hintock”. The village has a recreation ground with a play park and playing field. Guests are welcome to use the smart village tennis court, please bring your own racquets and balls. A walk through the nearby deer park to the historic village of Evershot with its pub, The Acorn Inn, serving delicious food and regional ales is a must. The pretty towns of Sherborne, Dorchester, Bridport and Weymouth are easily accessible, as is the World famous Jurassic coast.
