The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Things to do

East Dorset boasts a rich history that is most notably reflected by 13th century Corfe Castle, which sits atop a hill and is a great location for both exploring the ruins and enjoying fantastic views across the countryside. In its later years the area was the birthplace of Thomas Hardy and today his home, a beautiful thatched cottage, can be visited throughout the year. These sites, along with family friendly farm visits and country parks, are great places to while away the hours, but when it comes down to it, East Dorset is most memorable for its excellent beaches and great walks that take in the designated Heritage Coast and its unique geographical features. The famous natural landmarks of Old Harry Rocks, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are well worth a visit and it is also possible to hire sea kayaks to paddle right up to the base of these remarkable coastal features.
