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 small but beautiful Dorset village has an 11th century church and a number of traditional thatched cottages. Stay with Dorset Coastal Cottages and explore the surrounding countryside or pop down to Ringstead Bay, less than five miles away, and enjoy the shingle/sand beach and rock pools. The larger seaside town of Weymouth is 8 miles with its sandy beaches and selection of restaurants and bars.
