Often a victim of being "on the journey" to Devon and Cornwall, Dorset has more than it’s share of stunning scenery, idyllic country villages and beautiful beaches. Recently becoming England’s first World Heritage site – The Jurassic Coast has 95 miles of rugged clifftops, peaceful coves all of which can be investigated as part of a trip.
Swanage is a great place to, start, the chalk stacks of Old Harry Rocks pretty much mark the beginning of the Jurassic Coast and is accessible by following the South West Coast Path, the entry to 95 miles of beautiful scenery taking in many small coves and coastal villages.
Lyme Regis, famous for its geology and a prime destination for fossil hunters makes an ideal stop off if you’re traveling in a VW camper van. The geology of the area means that fossil hunters can search for remains of sea creature which lived in the seas up to 180 million years ago. But, this seaside town is not just about old rocks. To the east of the town is the famous Cobb which dates from the times of Edward I and provides shelter for the fishing boasts still using the harbour to this day. Holding on to its routes, Lyme Regis has a beautiful golden beach and facilities which make it great for a family break.
Often seen as the coastal flagship of Dorset, Bournemouth has miles of golden beaches and during the summer months draws in holiday makers from far and wide. There are a mixture of beach types, with something to suit everyone, from the golden sands and shallow waters of Sandbanks with some of the UK’s most expensive property through to Boscombe beach favoured by surfers and where an artificial reef has been built purely to improve the surfing conditions. To the east of Bournemouth, and now connected is Poole with its quay and harbour holding many expensive and beautiful boats. Whether you’re after some 5 star cuisine or a bag of chips on the key – you’ll find it!
Head east from the more populated areas of Poole and the pace of life slow a little (may be a lot). Starting with the beauty of Swanage and Studland, there is a long list of places to visit which are unspoiled and perfect for some rest and relaxation by getting off the beaten track a little. Places that include Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Chesil Beach offer the perfect environment to soak up the scenery, sit back and reflect on the pace of life with none of the bright lights and commercialised centre to provide distraction. There’s more to do in Dorset!
