Dorset offers the typically British lifestyle that most crave

Located at the base of the spine of England, Dorset encapsulates everything that about a southern British county. It is peaceful and serene in places but also has lots going on to keep residents entertained.

The southern region of the county is also the most southern region of the country, offering stunning views of the English Channel. The coastline also incorporates the breathtaking Jurassic Coast, which is England's first natural world heritage site. It stretches for 95 miles and finished in Studland Bay, Dorset. There's a whole host of activities to do along the stunning coastline, which has an infamous reputation for fossil hunting.

The south coast also offers wonderful views for walkers and ramblers on the South West Coast Path National Trail. Or, for the less active of Dorsettians, the spectacular scenery can always be enjoyed on a gentle coastal cruise.

There are a number of beauty spots further inland too. Corfe Castle, Lyme Regis Cobb, Stanpit Marsh and Witchampton are always popular visiting spots with residents and tourists, something those looking for a house for sale in Dorset may want to keep in mind.

The county is only a short drive away from the M5 and the north of England while also being in close proximity to the M3 and London. The county has solid rail links while also offering ferry services to the continent from Weymouth and Bournemouth.

Dorset can also boast a really impressive cuisine which combines the rustic farm produce synonymous with the countryside location alongside fresh seafood which is obviously very prevalent thanks to the coastal aspect of the region.

Whatever kind of person you are, you'll find plenty to stimulate you in this typically British county. Whether that's active sports or walking, eating and drinking or simply relaxing and staring at the ocean – those looking at property for sale in Dorset may find that should they decided to become bonafide Dorsettians that it could be one of the best decisions they make.
