Dorset – Visit all 48 English counties

I’d like to eventually be able to say I have visited all 48 counties England has. Not just drive through but spend some time, do at least one thing in each county. I don’t intend to do one mega trip crossing places off… My bank account simply won’t allow for that. So my idea is to slowly cross the counties off and blog about each county/what I got up to. If you have any recommendations of things I simply must do in a specific place please let me know!!!

Dorset:

We where lucky enough to have our home base in this lovely county for 3 weeks. It really is such a beautiful part of the country. Some favourites where Bournemouth beach/pier/arcade not forgetting the mini doughnuts they sell there! Yum! Mouth watering.

Another warm sunny day we went to Swanage beach. It had loads of stuff for the kids to do, excellent cafes and a really lovely sandy beach to play on!

On the way there we passed Corfe Castle. Although its only ruins it was pretty special. It was set in such a lovely village with loads of thatched roofed houses. I don’t know about you but I am a sucker for anything thatched!!!!

Exploring Poole harbour, and the Jurassic coast where also big hits. My favourite thing we did with our time in Dorset was probably going to Durdle door/ Lulworth cove. It was simply breath-taking as hopefully you can see in my pictures! It helped that it was a warm sunny august day while we were there. It really felt like we had left the country and where in Portugal or somewhere a bit more tropical then rainy England.

Pictures look pretty amazing don’t they?! Just thought I would add a touch of rawness… when we where at Durdle door its a bit of a trek from the car park. We had a double buggy with us… What an awful idea that was it is a bumpy totally unfriendly buggy trail…. Steep steep hill!!!! Here is my husband having his turn pushing the buggy/kids up the hill. We literally had to switch with one another every 2 minutes it was such hard work! So just learn from me… Don’t take someone in a wheel chair, or a buggy, or even worse a double buggy!!!
