About the neighbourhood
Come and stay in Hardy country. Thomas Hardy was born in the county town of Dorchester, a Roman settlement (visit the Roman Villa) and now county town, has a great range of modern shops set in the historic heart of the town, a great selection of eateries from independent to popular chains and two cinemas. Close by is the development known as Poundbury, the model village created by HRH Prince Charles and the Duchy of Cornwall, its well worth a look. The area has some outstanding visitor attractions, like Athelhampton, Lulworth Castle, The Tank Museum & Monkey world, as well as some great beaches at Lulworth & Ringstead, the Jurassic coast toward Lyme Regis and some traditional seaside towns with Weymouth and Swanage.
Getting around
Its best by car, though a few intrepid visitors have used public transport but its not the most frequent at the weekend.
