The England region

The West Country enjoys a milder climate than much of England and has been a popular holiday destination for over a century. Dorset, the most easterly county, is a well kept secret. It is filled with lush green, rolling countryside, broad river valleys, ancient towns and villages and no motorway. Dinosaurs were among the earliest inhabitants and left their skeletons to posterity embedded along the Jurassic Coast. The Romans came here, fighting their way north against the native defenders in the many iron age forts and staying to occupy Maiden Castle, in the county town of Dorchester. This is part of Wessex the ancient kingdoms of King Alfred the Great and Old King Cole of nursery rhyme fame. 2 Saxon kings are buried at Sherborne Abbey which is noted for having one of the finest fan vaulted ceilings ever created. This is Thomas Hardy's valley of the dairies where some of the finest dairy products are still produced today including the delicious Dorset Blue Vinney cheese made in the neighbouring farm heart of the Blackmore Vale. Farmers markets are held weekly at local towns around the region. Dorset is a great base for walking, riding and cycling or just enjoying the gentle ambience of its many ancient towns and villages. Other local tourist attractions include:

National Trust Properties and Gardens

Sherborne Old and New Castles ( which has a childrens trail to follow)

Corfe Castle

Bovington Tank Museum

Haines Motor Museum

Quad Biking and Badger Watching at Henley Hillbillies

Mere Down Falconry Centre

King Stag

Dorset has a number of National Trust houses and gardens to visit including Montacute, Kingston Lacey and Lytes Cary. Athelhampton and Sherborne Castle are also a must to visit. The Lyme Regis Fossil Fair in May is essential for budding earth scientists. For literary enthusiasts Bridport and Sherborne host their very own Literary Festivals and the bi annual Dorset Arts Week showcases the wealth of artistic creativity there is locally. As well as the County Show for displays of all things agricultural and equestrian, Stock Gaylard celebrates all aspects of the Oak Tree over the August Bank holiday. The famous Dorset Steam Fair, in early September, attracts enthusiasts from all over the world as does the ever popular Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival in September. Bournemouth and Weymouth host fire work displays in the summer. For walkers and riders the Wessex Ridgeway provides miles of excellent country routes.
