What’s it like to live in Dorset?

If you’re considering relocating to Dorset, you’ll want to know a little about the area and what the region offers.

If you’re looking for an English destination with plenty of history and culture, look no further than Dorset!

Dorset is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty, with miles of coastline, picturesque countryside, and charming towns and villages.

This county in southwest England is home to the Jurassic Coast – a long stretch of coastline along the English Channel where you can find many fossils and rock formations that date back millions of years.

Two natural landmarks not to miss are Durdle Door, an ancient stone archway, and the layered cliffs near Lulworth Cove. The towns of Poole, Weymouth and Swanage are also popular tourist destinations for their sandy beaches.

The county town of Dorchester is a historic market town with a lively arts scene, while Weymouth and Portland are perfect for those who enjoy the seaside.

There are excellent schools in Dorset, including several independent schools, and the University of Bournemouth offers a wide range of degree courses.

Things to do in Dorset

Dorset is home to some incredible attractions, making it the perfect destination no matter what you’re looking for. From thrilling adventures to serene landscapes and everything in between, this county has something for everyone. And if you’re a fan of seafood or good food, you’ll be spoiled for choice with the amazing restaurants dotting Dorset’s landscape.

Check out our guide for things to do in Bournemouth.

Five of the best things to see and do in Dorset include:

  • Durdle Door is an amazing natural rock formation on the Jurassic Coast, and the walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door along the cliff path (one mile each way) is well worth the effort.
  • Explore the Ruins at Corfe Castle, a beautiful castle set in the heart of Corfe Village, or take a stroll around the picturesque village.
  • Travel back in time onboard Swanage railway, a heritage steam railway that runs from Swanage to Norden.
  • Visit Old Harry Rocks by land or sea – these three chalk stacks sit at the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast and can be reached by walking along the cliff path from Studland Beach or by taking a boat trip from Poole Harbour.
  • The Isle of Portland stretches out into the English Channel, joined to the mainland by Chesil Beach. Wildly rugged and Rocky, Portland Bill is its tip where dramatic waves crash against cliffs on rough days. The red-and-white 1906 lighthouse still stands there today.

Popular places to live in Dorset

There are many lovely towns and villages in Dorset, each with its unique character.

Dorchester is the county town and offers a bustling market, while Weymouth and Portland are great for those who love the seaside. If you’re looking for a more rural setting, then places like Beaminster, Bridport or Sherborne might be more up your street.

Deciding where to relocate depends on what you require from your new home. Do you need to be close to good schools? Are you looking for lively nightlife? Or do you prefer a more relaxed pace of life?

Whatever your needs, our estate agent Ian Taylor can help you find the perfect property in Dorset.
