Map of Dorset


Seventy miles of fine coast line gently rolling hills and secluded valleys combine to make Dorset one of the most pleasant of English countries almost unchanged since its beauties were so well described by the great novelist Thomas Hardy, who was a native of the county. There are also many traces of a much older Dorset such as prehistoric barrows the fascinating hilltop camp called Maiden Castle or the ruined Corfe Castle which dates from Norman times.
Botanists may stumble over some of the rare plants that grow in Dorset, while geologists will find much toDorset tourism,accommodation,holidays,camping,hotels, interest them in the fossils and the varied and contorted rock strata found here. The most impressive examples are the stratified cliffs of Stair Hole at Lulworth Cove while a little way along the cliffs is a forest of fossilized tree stumps. One mile to the east stands the famous Durdle Door, a headland from which an arch has been cut in the rock by the action of the sea.
For holiday accommodation we have many hotels to choose from, if self-catering is required we have caravan and camp sites also holiday property, cottages and houses available in the South West. Use our maps or look in the Towns and Villages for more local information on the area. We have wonderful places to visit, links to attractions and days out, Eden's gardens are the most popular at the present, but we have many more, look under where to go.
