Breaks to Dorset offer family days out amid a scenic and ancient countryside. Few places in England can claim such ancient sights as the famous Jurassic Coast, where chalk cliffs regularly reveal dinosaur fossils, while nearby you can swim at world famous Durdle Door and beautiful Lulworth Cove. Inland follow gently rolling hills from ruined castles, past Bronze Age burial mounds and across the open vales and heaths that inspired the novels of Thomas Hardy. Breaks to Dorset also provide plenty of fun on the water with 7 miles of sandy beach at Bournemouth and a windsurfer’s paradise in Pool Harbour where you can also take a ferry to see rare red squirrels on Brownsea Island.
