New Homes in Dorset

Live the life

A combination of lovely countryside and coastline make Dorset one of the most beautiful spots in the country. The setting for several film and TV productions such as Broadchurch, buying a new home in Dorset will let you experience this lovely spot for yourself.

Things to see and do

With England’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Jurassic coast is an incredible 185 million years old. Filled with fossils, walks can be enjoyed along the coast, with great views to enjoy along the way.

The historic side of Dorset can be seen with a visit to one of its many castles or forts. The ruins of Corfe Castle allow you to step back in time, while Portland Castle has great views and 450 years of history. 

Museums and mills also take you back in time. Dorset County Museum in Dorchester has exhibitions on writer Thomas Hardy and the Jurassic Coast, while Mangerton Mill is a mill from the 17th century that’s still in operation today.

The seaside town of Weymouth is great for a day out. Kids can enjoy digging in the sand, while the promenade is great for exploring. Several restaurants and pubs offer various foods and drink, while several events throughout the year mean there’s always something to do.

There are lots of attractions to keep kids entertained too. Monkey World is an ape rescue centre that helps governments around the world stop the smuggling of wild primates. See chimps, gibbons, monkeys and orang-utans and enjoy guided tours and talks.


Dorset has a wide range of schools both primary and secondary, giving families plenty of choice. Nearby universities such as the University of Bournemouth provide higher education.
