Enjoying Your New Home in Dorset
The Dorset coastline is rightly famous, especially the Jurassic Coast. The name alone tells you how much history this landmark area contains! It runs from Studland Bay down to East Devon, and spans around 96 miles in total. It's been a World Heritage Site since 2001, and is perhaps one of Dorset's most iconic sights.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth is undoubtedly one of the biggest attractions in Dorset. It's a great place to visit if you’re wanting a seaside break. There are around 7 miles of beaches to explore, which means that your kids will almost certainly get tired before they've finished exploring! Aside from Bournemouth, there’s Swanage, Weymouth and Christchurch. Whilst it's easy to focus on the 90 plus miles of wonderful coastline, that's only part of the picture. When you look at the Dorset Area of Natural Beauty as a whole, you'll discover a multitude of landscapes spanning more than 435 miles. This includes the Isle of Purbeck, which enjoys miles of rugged coastline, hills and picturesque villages. There’s also a huge natural harbour at Poole, which joins Bournemouth as one of the two biggest settlements in Dorset.
From the chalk formations at Old Harry Rocks, to Durlston Country Park and the natural limestone arch at Durdle Door, you're really spoiled for choice when it comes to the Dorset Coast. There’s also the Valley of Stones National Nature Reserve, the Isle of Portland, Brownsea Island and more. However, the county brings charming inland localities where you can enjoy days out too. If it’s cultural attractions you’re looking for, then places like Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum are very popular destinations. Walkers can enjoy wide open spaces in country parks like Avon Heath, Moors Valley and Upton Country Park. And if your little ones have exhausted the beaches, then they can enjoy a great day out at a place like Adventure Wonderland. The choice is yours.
Perfectly-Placed New Builds in Dorset
Redrow's new build housing developments in Dorset put you at the centre of all this beauty, but also give you a huge amount of convenience. Dorset has plentiful road and rail links, as well as expansive bus routes and long-distance coach routes. The road network includes the A350, A35 and A31, although naturally you’ll end up using certain roads more than others. The A338 is likely to be one that you’ll travel on frequently, as it links the area to settlements like Bournemouth, Salisbury, and Christchurch.
The A31 is another key route, as it lets you reach Southampton. The train station at Bournemouth gives you another way to reach this port city, and it also lets you board direct trains to Poole or London Waterloo. Bournemouth airport is perhaps the most handy airport in the region, although Southampton Airport is reachable via the A31, and broadens your choice of destinations in Europe. And, of course, London Heathrow isn’t too far afield via the M3 either.
