Natural beauty spots are in plentiful supply thanks to places like the Valley of Stones National Nature Reserve and the iconic Durdle Door, while there are castles, islands and seafront attractions to explore too.

Education

Dorset has a good selection of schools the length and breadth of the county. This includes Queen’s Park Academy in Bournemouth and Manorside Academy in Poole, which are both rated as outstanding by Ofsted. The same applies to Weymouth’s Portesham CofE, while Dorchester’s Buckland Newton CofE is a strong option if you live in that area. 

Children in Dorchester can continue their education at the excellent Thomas Hardye School, while Poole Grammar School is also right up there. Bournemouth School is another outstanding option, and close to the equally highly rated Glenmoor Academy. 

Transport links in Dorset

There are lots of bus and train routes connecting different parts of Dorset, as well as coach services for travelling longer distances. There’s a small international airport on the edge of Bournemouth, while the county’s natural beauty and tranquility isn’t disturbed by any motorways. Instead, you can use roads like the A350, A35 and A31 to get around if you have a car. 

The Dorset property market

House prices in Dorset are considerably higher than the UK average, although there’s still a good spread of affordable housing to go along with more luxurious properties. You can even find everything from inexpensive 2 bedroom apartments to generous 4 bed detracted homes within the same developments, including at our Canford Paddock site on the edge of Bournemouth

Or perhaps you’d prefer to be in the Wimborne area, which boasts a stunning collection of 3 and 4 bed homes within a pleasingly peaceful location.
