Day Out - The Dorset CoastMarch 26, 2015
From us the Dorset Coast is just over 2 hours away without traffic so we got up early and left before 6am to make the most of it and avoid being sat in a car for half the day. We got down to Durdle Door just after 8, it was quiet and felt hot already.
The Dorset coast is incredible, the water is so clear and sparkly on a sunny day.
We reached the Man of War bay first. How is this England?!!
We couldn't wait to get down on the beach and go for a paddle. There was just one other couple down there who promptly left as we arrived! Private beach, yes please. I'm sure it would have been crowded later in the day though and at weekends.
We put the camera onto self-timer and messed around taking cheesy photos under the 'Door' - a unique feature of coastal erosion. I did a huge study on Dorset for my Geography A-level my inner geek loved it.
There are some adorable cottages and villages in Dorset, this was in Lulworth Cove.
It was super busy not surprisingly but we managed to get a table and the food was oh so good. Locally caught sardines for me and fish and chips for Ben overlooking the beach.
Studland Bay and the beaches around are some of the best in the UK and are so unspoilt.
