So what is going on in Dorset? Famous for its landscapes, delicious food and idyllic towns and villages, Dorset is surging in popularity! We love the coastline and the countryside, such as Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the Cerne Abbas Giant. We love its thatched cottages in gorgeous villages and of course, wonderful cheeses, Dorset Cereals, Clipper Teas and the very famous Dorset Knob!
