The Dorset region

West Dorset is Thomas Hardy country: chalk downs (sheep, yew-tree woods, marbled white butterflies and a carved giant) and chalk cliffs (over which Gabriel Oak's sheep cascaded in 'Far From the Madding Crowd' and below which Sergeant Troy left his clothes at Durdle Door) and thatched stone cottages with exuberant flower gardens.

It is great bowls and vales of tree-speckled farmland, magnificent when viewed from wooded hill-tops, some with ancient forts. Country houses in their own valleys remind one of Downton or Brideshead. Time-forgotten villages make you want to stay forever – their unusual double-barrelled names (like the one and only Whitchurch Canonicorum) are just as memorable.

Hunting fossils on west Dorset beaches is one of life's simple pleasures which should be on every bucket list; try your luck at Lyme Regis or Charmouth. Climb the dome of Golden Cap near Chideock for magnificent views of the 'Jurassic Coast' and visit the extraordinary 18-mile long Chesil Beach of pebbles which regularly wrecked sailing ships and shelters Abbotsbury and its swannery. West Bay, long enjoyed as a family seaside destination, has recently found new fame in the TV drama, Broadchurch.

Portland is famous for its views, stone and Bill and beautiful Lulworth Cove gave its name to a butterfly. At Weymouth, with its handsome seafront, King George III made bathing machines popular, now updated to Olympic sailing facilities. Sherborne is Dorset's best looking small town and at Tyneham (which you can visit) Army occupation has caused an unintentional sanctuary for wild flowers, birdsong and friendly (mostly) insects. The whole Dorset coast is called a 'World Heritage Coastline'.


Beaminster: thriving little town (church, pubs, cafés, shops, museum, art gallery) in the midst of a conservation area, 5 miles from the ancient historic market town of Bridport (restaurants, pubs, cinema, arts centre) and 7 miles from the wide, unspoilt beach of West Bay (location for ITV's 'Broadchurch' series) on Dorset's 'Jurassic Coast'.
