Rural Dorset is an area of scenic beauty and contrast, criss-crossed by the pretty River Stour and bordered on both sides by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Along the Wiltshire borders lie the rolling downlands of the Cranborne Chase, formerly a royal hunting ground and now a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering high chalkland views, many wild flowers, birds and butterflies.

To the east and the Hampshire borders, heathlands meet the meandering Avon Valley, which forms a delightful natural boundary with the neighbouring New Forest and its woodland and ponies. Holt Heath, a National Nature Reserve, is home to rare and unusual flora and fauna such as the shy Sand Lizard and diminutive Dartford Warbler.

Across the River Stour lies the gentle clay vale and dairying country of the Blackmore Vale, much beloved of Thomas Hardy, with its patchwork fields and hidden hamlets. Beyond, and stretching right over to the coast in the far west of the county, lies the open country of the Dorset Downs, Area of Outstnding Natural Beauty.

The serene and picturesque valleys of the Rivers Stour, Allen and Crane with their tranquil water meadows and lush vegetation are particularly rich in wildlife and make the perfect setting for an afternoon stroll or leisurely ride.

Beats me but I have a question for you. Should you not do your own homework?
