About Dorset

Dorset, Hardy's Wessex country, is perhaps the most rural and unspoilt county in southern England. As such it offers many delights for the country walker. Our guides point you towards all the best locations and routes to explore. The Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is typical of this rural landscape with heaths, chalk downs, pastoral vales and deep country lanes. Winfrith Heath, a bracken wilderness of sombre beauty, home to rare wild flowers and heath land birds, is the location Hardy used for 'Egdon Heath' in his novel The Return of the Native.
