A Hardy (Country) Annual

The Cole family has returned to Gloucester, quietly and away from the media glare, having relished a sunny summer holiday in picturesque Dorset. We stayed in a bonny little village called Lulworth and from our abode we could walk to three splendid beaches, Lulworth Cove, Man of War and Durdle Door. The latter has a remarkable sea arch but gorgeous aspects were to be enjoyed at each coastal area. Dorset is a rather beautiful, unspoilt county full of thatched cottages and verdant, sweeping rural views that reminded us a little of Ireland. I’m glad we went. It’s nice to be home though.

Look above for some views:

1. On Chesil Beach, literally

2. Durdle Door

3. View from Maiden Castle, a remarkable Iron Age hill fort near Dorchester
