Explore the Jurassic Coast..
If you’ve been to watch the film ‘Far From The Madding Crowd’ then you’ll already know the answer as the opening scenes showcased Dorset’s beautiful Lulworth Cove. Missed the film, well here’s a quick rundown of the reasons why we think it’s a pretty cracking place to hold a walking get-together in March:
a.) The summer crowds have left
Tranquility and peacefulness reign once more after the summer visitor peak around honeypots such as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.
b.) The Jurassic coastline looks spectacular on bright Spring days.
With its World Heritage site status, the coastline around Lulworth Cove and on the South West coast path offers spectacular views.
The amazing rock formations, ‘fossil forest’ and sandy beaches are all sights to behold.
c.) It’s not all about Thomas Hardy!
For the weekend we have lined up, we’re mixing it up a bit with a day’s walking through the leafy lanes and across heathland around Bovington.
Rather than following in Thomas Hardy’s footsteps, we’re going to be retracing the steps of Lawrence of Arabia who made his home at Clouds Hill near Bovington.
d.) The locals are friendly
The picturesque fishing village of West Lulworth is on our doorstep and a good pub is sure to hold an attraction for some!
