Wessex is so rich in cities, towns and villages. Heritage abounds everywhere from the Jurassic Coast, Kents Cavern in Torquay that had human habitation thousands of years ago to the more recent Stonehenge! Then on through the ages to Celt, Roman, Saxon and Norman cultures to the modern day.
Up to date cities that throb with life. Great shopping with large stores and those delightful little boutiques sometimes hidden down enchanting little alleyways.
Sandy beaches, pebble beaches, Blue flag beaches, piers. Zoos, Botanical Gardens, the list is endless.
Little villages down mysterious shady lanes that just beg to be explored. Woods and streams. The local pub that may well serve a very pleasant lunch at a sensible price after that hike down fascinating footpaths or that cycle ride through the many cycle ways that adorn Wessex.
Did your family come from the Wessex region years and years ago? Check out where they lived, walk in their footsteps. Check out the local Record Office, you never know what you might find!
There is the Annual Steam Rally at Tarrant Hinton in Dorset. What about a cruise to see the Jurassic Coast from the sea. (Check out the Events pages for places and times.) Or explore that famous Coast from the land side. Fossils abound, but be careful, cliffs crumble.
Explore the longest footpath in Britain, the 600 mile long South Coast footpath from the Jurassic Coast in Dorset along the Devon and Cornwall coasts and back up to Minehead in Somerset. Best done in walk size bits!!
The list is endless.
Check out the accommodation, there are so many hotels in the region that would be just right for you. The search box above has so many hotel choices!!!! Or try this link.
Then again you might also like a house sitter or a a pet sitter!!! This could be the answer!!!! (However, take care, make up your own mind about the sitter, it is your house, your pet and your things!)
