A weekend on the Bristish Jurassic coast.
Dramatic and charming at the same time, The Jurassic coast runs for 95miles from Exmouth to Swanage. Named a world heritage UNESCO site for it’s geological features and the 185 million years of earth history they enclose, the coastline features a mix of rugged but serene landscapes; striking cliffs and rock formations, soft coloured rolling hills, smalls scenic coves and long sandy beaches.At the furthest Eastern point stand Old harry’s rocks- freestanding stacks of chalk cliffs broken off from the mainland jutting out of the sea. Heading West is the pretty village of Lulworth, and it’s beautiful horseshoe cove.
A walk along the cliffs from Lulworth cove goes to Durdle Door, a naturally formed stone arch and probably the coast’s most visited landmark. Head a little inland to dine and stay at The Ollerod in Beaminster - a 14th century country house converted into an elegant hotel. Further west and edging towards Devon, golden cliffs line the long Westbay’s East beach.
