Escape to the country with commuter links

Dorset is becoming increasingly popular with people looking to escape the city. In particular, Dorset has attracted a wealth of Londoners and ex Londoners looking for a quieter lifestyle while retaining easy access England’s engine room. Straight into London Waterloo from Poole train station in under two hours and with a road commute of roughly the same time, Dorset gives investors and buyers the best of both worlds.

An array of yacht clubs to choose from

With sailing, cruising and regular races, yachts clubs are the perfect opportunity to celebrate boaters and all things yachts.

Property buyers and investors have the opportunity to join one of the many prestigious yacht clubs in the county, including Parkstone Yacht Club, Poole Yacht Club and Royal Dorset Yacht Club. It’s a great way to get afloat and involved in water sports with like-minded individuals

National Trust locations in Dorset

From islands to ancient coasts and even castles, there are plenty of places to visit and sights to see for tourists and Dorset residents.

Situated by Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island is infamous for red squirrels, wildlife and scouting. What’s more, located outside of Swanage, Studland Bay consists of vast areas of sandy beaches and heathland.

Dorset homeowners can take advantage of being able to plan a variety of days out, all within a close proximity of their home.

Prestigious restaurants for a truly divine culinary experience

Dorset plays host to some of the best bistros and eateries, with over a dozen Michelin-starred restaurants available allowing you, your family and friends to enjoy a truly exceptional gourmet meal.

Just shy of Michelin standard, celebrity chef Rick Stein has a restaurant in Sandbanks offering stunning panoramic views of Poole Harbour, as well as a full a la carte menu and shellfish bar.
