Hop on a train to Dorchester from London Waterloo and after a couple of hours you will find yourself light years away from the hustle of the capital. A must see on any trip to Dorset is the Jurassic Coastline - the inspiration for our knitwear brand. If you haven't laid eyes on Durdle Door or Old Harry Rocks then take your pick; both are a great place to start.
Stretching almost 100 miles from one end to the other you will doubtless find a spot that allows you to take in the stunning views, with nothing but your own thoughts to disturb you. The great expanse of this World Heritage Site means you must stay at least a night to capture its full value and there is no shortage of awesome B&Bs and hotels a stone's throw from the water. A favourite of ours is the Pig on the Beach which has a stunning view right over Old Harry and if you've booked in for one night you'll wish it were two. After indulging yourself with one of their amazing breakfasts, embark early and head North to Brownsea Island where you may be rewarded by the sight of a red squirrel. Afterwards, head west, to Corfe Castle and then beyond, to Lulworth Cove, as beautiful a natural harbour as you could wish to find.
Continuing on your coastal voyage, a short drive from Lulworth you will reach the remarkable Durdle Door. No matter the weather or time of day, as you round the corner and catch your first glimpse of the rock formation it's always breathtaking. And if you are keen enough get up with the larks and capture the sunrise through the 'door' itself, you won't regret it. After taking in Man O War Bay head off for a spot of Dorset grub at one of the numerous great pubs in the area.
For us Dorset is where we grew up and somewhere that we wish we could spend more time. Be it Winter or Summer, we seem to be blessed by the conditions whenever we get the chance to escape the lights and din of London. We hope that the elements are similarly kind on your visit. There is nowhere we feel more content or where we would rather be.
