Discover Dorset

Dorset is the perfect mix of countryside and coastline, providing both stunning scenery and a peaceful rural retreat for holidaymakers with a variety of interests. Walk the legendary Jurassic Coast in search of fossils and witness dramatic cliff-tops and a stunning landscape. For seaside havens, Devon and Cornwall provide some of the greatest blue flag beaches in the UK, perfect for basking in glorious sunshine, taking up water sports or simply building sandcastles with the little ones.

For a more-relaxed pace of life, head inland and find luscious countryside embellished with thatched villages and quaint. Stroll or cycle through enchanted woodlands in the Moors Valley Country Park and for those passionate about literature, retrace the steps of Blyton, Austen and Hardy.
