The south-west county of Dorset has so much to offer homebuyers, balancing incredible natural beauty with its bustling town centres. This amazing part of England offers almost 100 miles of beautiful golden beaches, and is home to the UK’s only natural World Heritage site in the form of the Jurassic Coast. Alongside this, more than half of Dorset has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty. All of these fantastic natural attractions can also be enjoyed for longer – compared to the average UK climate, Dorset offers its residents an additional 364 hours of sunshine a year!

Dorset is not all coastlines and beaches though. The vibrant towns have plenty of shopping and entertainment opportunities, plus many fantastic activities. Bournemouth, in particular, boasts an incredible nightlife for local residents. There is a full annual calendar of festivals and events, as well as amazing local produce cooked to the highest of standards in the county’s many excellent restaurants.

Alongside this, local and international businesses – such as Magellan Aerospace and Farrow & Ball – bring fantastic job opportunities to Dorset, whilst convenient rail connections and Bournemouth International Airport make it easy for residents 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 average life expectancy in Britain!
