Balancing incredible natural beauty with its bustling town centres, the south west county of Dorset has so much to offer homebuyers. This stunning part of the country offers almost 100 miles of golden sand beaches, is home to the UK’s only natural World Heritage site in the form of the Jurassic Coast and more than half of Dorset has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty. All these spectacular natural attractions can be enjoyed for longer throughout the year thanks to the excellent Dorset climate which delivers an additional 364 hours of sunshine on top of the UK average!
It’s not all coastlines and beaches though. The vibrant towns include fantastic activities, shopping and entertainment opportunities, with Bournemouth in particular boasting an incredible nightlife. There’s a chock-a-bloc annual calendar of festivals and events, as well as high quality local produce which is cooked to the highest of standards in the county’s many excellent restaurants.
Local and international businesses, including the likes of Magellan Aerospace and Farrow and Ball, bring job opportunities to Dorset, while convenient rail connections and Bournemouth International Airport make it easy to reach the rest of the country and the world. With such a great quality of life on offer, it’s no wonder that Dorset has the highest life expectancy in Britain.
