Dorset Summer of Festivals

Dorset Summer of Festivals

We love living in Dorset and we like to think we have more to offer as a county than most.  What could be better than spending the summer here?  Summer and Dorset go together like sea and sand.

Vibrant bustling market towns, historical buildings and estates, stunning gardens, rolling green hills, dramatic cliffs and every type of beach imaginable, from long uninterrupted stretches of golden sand to secluded bays under soaring cliffs; there’s something for everyone.

And summer in Dorset also means festival time. As the weather hots up and the great outdoors beckons it’s time to wash down the folding chairs, hunt out the blankets and throws, pull out the picnic baskets, check the crockery and cutlery,  chuck in a few garden flares and get set to make the most of outdoors and the festival fever that surrounds us.

We’ve put together for you our top ten events in Dorset and, to celebrate this festival season, we have a limited number of tickets for Melplash Show to give away to any guests who book a holiday in Allington Court, Barton Cottage or Old Post Office during the week of the show.
