With longer days and lighter evenings upon us, Spring is the perfect time to explore the stunning and unique county of Dorset and discover all of the hidden delights that it has to offer (as well as beating those busy summer crowds).
From music events and historic attractions to world heritage sites and popular family days out, Dorset has something to offer everybody. The region loves its events and festivals and there is always something taking place. With plenty of food, art festivals (such as Dorset Art Weeks) and live music events, there is never a dull moment to be had in this welcoming county and you are sure to have a memorable visit.
Discover the Jurassic coastline from Charmouth to Studland Bay. A World Heritage Site thanks to its spectacular geology features such as Durdle Door (a natural limestone arch), Lulworth Cove (a unique horse shoe shaped cove) and Old Harry Rocks. Truly unique and full of great photo opportunities.
Over to the West of Dorset you will find charming villages as well as the picturesque harbours of Lyme Regis and West Bay (best known for its appearance in hit TV show BroadChurch, where stars David Tenant and Olivia Coleman are seen in the Dorset coastline).
Of course, it is impossible to see everything this wonderful county has to offer in just a day, so booking a break away gives you the chance to explore Dorset at a more leisurely pace. Staying in a self-catering holiday cottage allows you the freedom to come and go as you please, meet the locals and relax in the privacy of your own private apartment or luxury house.
The fabulous Hardown House is a great central location for exploring this county. Situated in the picturesque village of Morecombelake (home of the traditional Dorset knob), the property is just a short distance from the popular and bustling market town of Bridport.
The property enjoys breath-taking panoramic views across the unspoilt Dorset coastline and countryside and has been newly-refurbished to a high-standard. The house has been thoughtfully and lovingly designed to incorporate luxury and modern living by the friendly owners.
Comfortably sleeping eight, Hardown House is a great choice if you are exploring the area as a family or group of friends, with bright and airy living spaces, this cottage has ample room for entertaining and creating those all-important holiday memories.
Wake up to the sound of the countryside and enjoy the sun rising over the hills whilst enjoying a late breakfast in the property’s half acre of beautifully landscaped private gardens, or after a long day discovering the delights of Dorset, head to the snug and curl up in front of the log fire with a book.
A great base for all of your exciting adventures on your next holiday to Dorset.
