About Dorset

Over half the county is an Area of Outstanding Beauty, miles of stunning beaches line the world famous Jurassic coast and beautiful villages nestle inland among rolling hills – Dorset’s appeal is obvious.

A stone’s throw from stunning scenery, vibrant towns like Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Sherborne are packed with great places to eat, drink and shop. Dig a bit deeper and you’ll discover some of Dorset’s hidden delights: the county’s smuggling heritage, local produce (including the famous Dorset Knobs and Olives et Al) and a thriving arts scene.

Getting practical, we can introduce you to the best schools and communities to help you find the right part of the county for you. We also know all about boring but important things like variations in mobile phone signal and broadband speed within the county.
