Best Part of Dorset?

A question I am often asked but difficult to answer.Dorset has great beaches, beautiful countryside,a thriving arts scene, and great access to London and continental Europe.

Most people coming here head to Bourenmouth first as it is the biggest town in the county and has miles of award winning beaches.

Then there is the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage listed site stretching from Poole Harbour down to Devon.Millions of years in the marking but still here for all to enjoy.

A recent survey by the Office of National Statistics showed that people in the eastern part of the county have the highest chance of reaching the age of 75 in the UK ,with women having an 86% chance and men 78%.A fantastic endorsement of the area don't you think?

As well as top hotels,self catering cottages and B and Bs, Dorset has excellent camp sites for those of you who love the great outdoors.For the more adventurous there is offshore diving, sailing, and free climbing on the cliffs of Purbeck.

Once you decide you want to move here there is a great range of property from country cottages to urban apartments.Where? Bournemouth,Poole, Weymouth, Shaftsbury,Christchurch, Blandford Forum, Bridport, Lyme Regis, and more,the choice is yours.

The beaches are amongst the best in the country, clean and safe, so much so that it takes years to get to the top of the beach hut waiting list.

Poole boasts one of the largest natural harbours in the world (though not quite as deep as Sydney Harbour-so shallow the water only comes up to your knees.)This makes it ideal for water sports such as wind and kite surfing.

Of course the county is synonymous with Thomas Hardy and his novels Jude the Obscure,The Mayor of Casterbridge and Tess of the d'Urbervilles amongst others.The places he describes will come alive for you here.

So if you want to be far from the madding crowd and really live this is place to be.There is much to show you so let's get started.
