Nestled in the picturesque Marshwood Vale in the glorious unspoilt countryside of west Dorset is the tiny hamlet of Shave Cross. A mere five miles from the beautiful Dorset Heritage Coast, this lovely settlement is also close to the thriving market town of Bridport known for its association with the television program 'The River Cottage' and its highly coveted amateur writing award. With its Georgian buildings and picturesque 17th Century cottages, the seaside resort of Lyme Regis is only a short drive away and is well worth visiting for its wide range of shops, restaurants, museums and gardens. With so much to see and do surrounding the peaceful hamlet of Shave Cross, this location makes an ideal holiday destination for anyone looking to explore what the pretty Dorset region has to offer.
Dorset has many claims to fame including the iconic Hovis advert, the best-selling Famous Five Books, and the award winning drama ‘Broadchurch’. Visit Shaftesbury and you’ll find a very recognisable street, Gold Hill. This cobbled street was use in the 1970’s Hovis TV advert featuring a boy pushing a bike up the hill. Walking up/down this familiar hill you’d be forgiven for humming or whistling 'New World Symphony' which accompanied the TV advert.
Enid Blyton’s ‘The Famous Five’ series featured Dorset locations such as the Isle of Purbeck and Poole Harbour, with Anne, Dick, Georgina, Julian, and Timmy the dog having their adventures and enjoying a few ginger beers along the way.
The cliffs and beach at West Bay were used as the backdrop to the ITV crime drama ‘Broadchurch’. Retrace the steps of David Tennant and Olivia Coleman by visiting this stunning section of the Dorset coast.
The Jurassic Coast is over 90 miles of coastline covering from East Devon to Dorset. Recognised as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, The Jurassic Coast, quite rightly, joins other well-known World Heritage Sites such as the Great Barrier Reef (Australia) and the Grand Canyon (USA). It is easy to see why this coast is so popular when it allows visitors to experience a fascinating walk through history.
We hope you have a great Dorset break!
