Milton Abbas is a village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in South West England. It is in the North Dorset district, about five miles south-west of Blandford Forum and 11 miles north east of Dorchester. There is a pub and tea room in the village. Every two years a historic country fair takes place in Milton Abbas where the locals celebrate the rebuilding of their village. It attracts thousands of visitors and recreates village life from the 18th century with various stalls, traditional music, dancing, farmers market and much more. Further afield lies the village of Milborne St. Andrew, the valley is named for the seasonal stream which runs from springs high up on the chalk downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering glorious walks and superb views. Discover Dorchester; a vibrant town for sightseeing and shopping but also home to Dorchester's museums and shops, walk the walks, drink great coffee, eat great food and take trips to the Jurassic coast.
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!
