The West Country region

If you're after clear air, sweeping cliff walks, breathtaking views and snug little towns brimming with restaurants and shops to explore, Dorset is for you!

Dorset is as multi-layered as the famous fossil flecked cliffs along its Jurassic Coast - a stunning stretch of 200 million-year-old shoreline that has been designated a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its outstanding geological make-up.

The charming countryside Dorset has to offer has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it's easy to see why - take some time to discover this beautiful county at your own pace.

There is more to Dorset than just fabulous scenery and magnificant coast - the history of this county is rich and vivid. How many areas do you know that can boast a huge naked chalk giant, England's first Natural World Heritage Site and the largest hillfort in Europe!!

All over Dorset, you'll uncover charming market towns and tiny villages tucked into tranquil rurality. Each town has its own individuality, character and history to relate.

It is no wonder that the area has captivated film and TV makers from all over the world. Productions of all kinds have been filmed on location here, with Dorset's unspoilt countryside, dramatic coastline and spectacular historic houses and gardens being used as a backdrop to the action.

Take time to look a little closer at the region and you will discover an area that's as culturally and historically rich as any in the UK.


The small market town of Sturminster Newton is set on the banks of the River Stour, reached via a graceful, six arch 15th century bridge, carrying a warning of deportation for those who damage it! The whole area acted as inspiration for the works of Thomas Hardy, who wrote Return of The Native, whilst living in the town. The region is dotted with thatched cottages, rural walks, stunning country views, and fascinating towns, such as Sherborne, with its abbey and castle and Shaftesbury, with its famous Gold Hill, whilst the beautiful Dorset Heritage coastline is also within easy reach, making this an ideal base all year round.
