For a holiday destination that’s far from the madding crowds, beautiful Dorset may be just the ticket. Dorset is perhaps best known for the breathtaking Jurassic Coast, but the South West region also exudes old world charm with many of its towns and villages preserved in time, often depicted in Thomas Hardy’s novels.
The awe inspiring Jurassic Coast is a designated Area of National Beauty and Britain’s only Natural World Heritage Site. This photogenic stretch of epic coastline spans 95 miles, dates back 185 million years and creates amazing dog walking opportunities. Other historic sites well worth a visit in the county include Corfe Castle, standing tall and overlooking the South Dorset countryside. You’ll also find an array of dog friendly National Trust properties throughout the county.
Another notable and charming place to visit in Dorset is West Bay, a village next to the bustling Bridport Harbour where much of the ITV hit-drama, Broadchurch, was filmed. Be sure to sample the fresh catch of the day at one of the dog friendly restaurants that surrounds the harbour. Experience for yourself why Dorset remains a popular holiday destination and follow our lead to discover the best dog friendly places to stay, eat and visit throughout the stunning county.
