Why People Choose to Relocate to Dorchester

Why People Choose to Relocate to Dorchester

There are many great reasons to live in Dorchester, and it’s now being noted as a popular commuter town for those who want a better quality of life but still want a decent connection to London and other major cities. With this in mind, we’ve decided to compile a Wood Removals list of reasons to relocate to Dorset.

The quality of life in Dorchester is something that attracts a lot of people to Dorchester. The clean sea air, the relaxed pace, the beautiful beaches and great restaurants all add up to better living, and it’s most likely why people live longer here. We get more sun than most places – with approximately 364 more hours than the national average, and there are plenty of beaches and countryside to enjoy the additional sunshine in. For beachgoers, we suggest Cogden Beach but you can also take in the scenery of West Wexington Beach, and Abbotsbury Beach is a popular location for fishing.

Dorchester is a great place for walking and exploring with numerous historical sites and amazing views. St Catherine’s Chapel is a 14th-century chapel that has amazing views, and Eggardon Hillfort offers one of the best vantage views in the county. The Cerne Abbas Giant is something of a wonderful historical oddity – at a whopping 180-feet it’s a glimpse into the past that’s a must see. Maumbury Rings monument is a great mix of history that is regularly used now for open-air concerts, festivals and historical re-enactments.

There are lots of great pubs and restaurants to visit, and due to its good weather and fertile soil, Dorchester offers the perfect conditions for local produce of vegetables and fresh fish. And if you’re brave you try out some Dorset Naga – rumoured to be one of the hottest chillis in the world! Dorchester is steeped in literary tradition – you can visit T.E. Lawrence’s Cloud Hills which still contains original furniture and photographs, and there’s also Thomas Hardy’s Cottage. For more history, you can visit the Tank and the Keep Military Museums, or for something different for the kids, visit the Teddy Bear Museum. If you want to go even further back in time and you’re a big dinosaur fan, then you should head to the Dorset Country Museum and the Dinosaur Museum – Dorchester and Dorset have a fascinating Jurassic past that’s suitable for all ages.
