Dorset

Step behind the scenes of a Hollywood movie or bestselling novel in stunning Dorset. You can find your own Jurassic Park on beaches sprinkled with fossils and smuggler's caves or trace Thomas Hardy novels on open heaths and vales. The southwest county's dramatic coastline is an outdoor sculpture gallery with arches, stacks and coves carved by Mother Nature herself. Casual amblers and serious ramblers alike can trek ridgeways between Bronze Age burial mounds and castle ruins. Blink and you'll miss bashful dormice and deer scurrying around bluebell-carpeted woodlands. We recommend farmers markets to stock up on mouth-watering Dorset essentials – apple cake, scrumpy and Blue Vinny cheese.
