Dorset Landscape

Dorset is delicious, the food, the coast and the countryside.  The former chief news correspondent Kate Adie described Dorset: “I love lumpy countryside hills and water – and unexpected views, which is what I love about Dorset.” The countryside of Dorset is unlike any other county.  Its unique geography and countryside has resulted in an exceptionally varied landscape.  The coastline has been awarded World Heritage Site Status and most of the County is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Unusually most of the County has avoided large scale development and Dorset remains the only County without a motorway – so if you are looking for peace and quiet, superior weather,  beautiful scenery and a laid back pace of life – Dorset has to be your number one choice.
