The West Country region
Home to England's first World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast's outstanding geology represents 185 million years of Earth history. The whole 95 miles is open and spectacular, a walker's paradise to explore the sandy beaches, bays, coves and headlands, the changing geology determines and incredible variety of bird, plant and sea life.
Dorset has less rainfall than Devon or Cornwall and the summer swimming is excellent. The water is clean and the beaches varied: reefs and shale ledges for snorkelers, safe sandy beaches for children at Studland, Swanage and Weymouth plus great swathe of shingle that makes up the famous Chesil Bank.
Over half the county has been designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty and there are many places to visit from the famous Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door arch to fossil hunting at Charmouth and Lyme Regis, to viewing the Roman artefacts in Dorchester and climbing to the top of the majestic Maiden Castle.
The wide and varied activities on offer in the county include sailing, surfing, coasteering, rock climbing, horse riding and golf. The choice of beaches in Dorset also offer every thing from the 'Kiss Me Quick' resorts to the unspoilt, deserted remote bays and coves, most are dog friendly all year round.
The resort towns of Swanage, Weymouth and Lyme Regis offering great family entertainment plus many festivals and county shows including The Great Steam Fair, the Dorset County Show and Bestival at Lulworth Castle. Dorset has also attracted many famous chefs and fine dining can now be had at the Michelin star restaurant Sienna in Dorchester, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage or Mark Hix's Oyster & Fish House. Getting to Dorset is quick and easy. Whether by train or car getting here is easy and just 2.5 hours from London and the home counties.
This hidden gem of Dorset Coastal Cottages is a sleepy village surrounded by rolling hills. Footpaths will lead you to the Jurassic Coast Path and the Sailor's Return, serving a range of ales and pub grub, is a Good Pub Guide staple. The Five Marys Barrow Cemetery, found along the trail of the same name, runs along the ridge of a hill overlooking the village and is particularly beautiful at sunrise and sunset. Lulworth Cove, only 5 miles away is a popular walk.
