Dorset

Dorset's coast is a World Heritage Site, fascinatingly varied 'Jurassic Coast' with fossil-filled cliffs, pebble beaches and huge and beautiful natural harbours. Inland are chalk downs with sheep, yew-tree woods and butterflies, rivers and woodland-ringed bowls and vales of lushest farmland - Thomas Hardy's country. Fine small towns tempt you to linger and explore.
