The Natural Beauty of Dorset is an eclectic mix of everything Dorset, based around the county's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is packed with information about this stunning county: its geology, its natural history, its heritage and its lures for residents and visitors alike. Through a diverse mixture of subjects you can explore one of Dorset's greatest charms: its variety. Its coast can be both cosy and treacherous; its countryside is gentle and rugged in equal measure. It has more footpaths and bridleways than tarmac roads and it has the oldest letterbox in use in England to this day. It is a county that will enthrall the inquisitive and the adventurous, whether you seek unspoilt beauty or quirky charm within one of the most beguiling Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Britain.
