Dorset property offers perfect outdoors lifestyle

The beautiful county of Dorset lies on the English Channel in the south-west of England.

About 50 per cent of the county's population lives in the South East Dorset conurbation - an area that may be ideal for those seeking a house for sale in Dorset that is close to everyday urban amenities and transport links to other major UK towns and cities.

Dorset borders Hampshire to the east, Wiltshire to the north-east, Devon to the west and Somerset to the north-east and its proximity to these popular UK holiday destinations means that demand for property in the region is never too low.

There are a number of historical tourist attractions popular with visitors to Dorset such as the hill forts of Maiden Castle and Hod Hill, and the naval base at Portland, which played a decisive role in Britain's national defence for many years. 

Less budget-conscious property seekers looking for a house for sale in Dorset could consider focusing their search around the smart Sandbanks and Canford Cliff region. Sandbanks is a small spit or peninsula that crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour on the English Channel and its beautiful properties have earned it the nickname The Palm Beach of Britain. 

The area has a number of well-known residents, so it is the ideal location for those who would like to rub shoulders with the rich and famous. 

Dorset's rich artistic and cultural heritage also makes it an ideal location to buy or rent a property. The region boasts a number of arts centres, galleries and theatres, as well as outdoor theatrical venues that put on productions such as Hamlet or A Midsummer Night's Dream during the summer months. 

There are also various events that take place throughout the year such as fireworks displays and county fairs, which are perfect for family days out.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800674365-ADNFCR
