About this location

The Dorset region

Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.


Set in the valley of the River Cerne, the scattered community of Charminster is surrounded by glorious, unspoiled countryside and is served by a shop and pub – though for more specialist amenities the town of Dorchester is just a mile and a half away. Packed with Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants, Dorchester is well worth visiting. Other local attractions include Maiden Castle, the largest hill fort in England, and visit the County Museum, which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, the author of 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles', born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Also within easy driving distance are the glorious beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, as well as the rugged peninsula of Portland linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach and part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline.
