Local Area


Durdle Door

With its clean air, sweeping coastal paths, breath-taking views and snug little towns teeming with restaurants and shops to explore, Dorset is a county hard to beat.

Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door (pictured right) are a mere 3.5 miles away. As part of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast they form a stunning stretch of 200 million-year-old shoreline that has been designated a Natural World Heritage Site due to its extraordinary geological make-up. This coupled with the charming countryside Dorset has to offer makes this county an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There is more to Dorset than just fabulous rural scenery – the more urban towns of Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth offer sandy beaches and harbours renowned for their water sports, bustling town centres with restaurants, cafes, art galleries and theatres.

Dorset is home to a wealth of attractions and places to visit; Corfe Castle, Monkey World, Blue Pool, the Tank Museum, Swanage Railway, Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis, Fly Fishing in Tolpuddle and much more.

Dorset is the setting of the novels of Thomas Hardy, who was born near the county town of Dorchester.
