The West Country / Dorset region
Dorset is.best known for it's rolling hillsides, dramatic cliffs, sweeping beaches, sleepy villages, bustling towns and quiet countryside - West Dorset's charms are there for all. Over half the county is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dorset is famous for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which features landforms such as Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door, as well as the holiday resorts of Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Swanage, and Lyme Regis. Dorset's three large ports at Poole, Weymouth and Portland, and its international airport at Hurn, play an important part in the local economy, generating a substantial amount of international trade and tourism. Dorset is the birthplace and principal setting of the novels of Thomas Hardy, who was born in the county, and William Barnes, whose poetry celebrates and preserves the ancient Dorset dialect.
The Shaftesbury / West Stour area
West Stour is one of many small village's in North Dorset. It has a tiny village hall which backs onto the church and a pub providing excellent food and a large selection of ale. The Saxon town of Shaftesbury only a short driving distance sits proudly on top of a hill and offers unique gift shops and several cafe's. The famous cobbled Gold Hill (a scene in Thomas Hardy's 'Far From The Madding Crowd' and Hovis bread advert) remains unchanged. The views from Shaftesbury are truly spectacular

Duncliffe Chalet suited our requirements very well, as we needed a base for the weekend. It is well appointed and provided comfortable accommodation for our party of 5 adults. We particularly appreciated having 3 en suite bathrooms.
