About Dorset

Dorset is a county of great beauty, situated on the South Coast of England, bounded by the Counties of Devon, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire. Dorset boasts an outstanding 75 mile long shore fronting the English Channel which separates the United Kingdom from mainland Europe. A traditional English county rich in archaeology, unspoilt rural villages and countryside. Nearby attractions include the picturesque and homely Town of Weymouth, Historic Sherborne Castle Built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, Mapperton House and Gardens of Elizabethan origin, home of the Earl and Countess of Sandwich.
