Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.
The thriving village of Motcombe lies on the edge of North Dorset's Blackmore Vale, just 2 miles from the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury. Motcombe boasts its own friendly community store and Post Office, with a country pub close by. The local town of Shaftesbury, well served by a good range of shops and inns, is perched on a spur of rolling green hills with spectacular views reaching far across the rural landscape. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (the famous â€˜Hovis' advert was filmed here) with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Nearby, a drive through the picturesque Blackmore Vale, dotted with pretty villages, offers visitors a flavour of the very best of the English countryside. A treat not to be missed!
