Oh, Dorset is Beautiful!

Posted on:May 12, 2020


Oh, Dorset is Beautiful! So sang the popular 70’ alt and trad folk band the Yetties. They should know they hailed from Dorset themselves from the village of Yetminister.

This ode to the county was a love song about it but also about the fruity farm lasses they knew. There was also a sizable amount of references to cider or zyder as it is properly pronounced.

They aren’t wrong though. Everyone has a tendency to pass on by this rural marvel and miss it as they plough on for Devon’s crowded beaches or Cornwall’s car clogged lanes. Why? Get yourself on a Coach and have a look around. In fact get Coach Hire Dorset from https://turnerscoaches.co.uk/ as a good start point.

There are several of the UK’s most amazing natural structures in the county, the first being Durdle Door, a perfect arch of limestone extending out into the sea of the bay, a popular TV and film location. Second is the bay at Poole Harbour. A great place to sit and watch the world and the birds go by. Finally there is the majestic ruin of Corfe Castle, the most photographed property in the ownership of the National Trust. That’s just the beginnings. As the Yetties sang, “Dorset is beautiful wherever you go”.
