Dorset Area Guides

Dorset’s miles of sandy beaches, prime weather, and vibrant towns and villages make it a perennially desirable place to live. With over half of the county is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 5 country parks, and 100 miles of coastline, it’s easy to forget that you’re on a direct train line from Waterloo to Weymouth, and just two and a half hours from London by car. The area is also reputed to be family-friendly, with loads of outdoor activities on offer and access to many good schools, but is also a draw for those planning to retire, as Dorset residents have generally high life expectancies, good health, and are generally affluent. Property of all kinds, to buy and to rent, is available in Dorset.
