The Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is blessed with some of the most striking sequences of beautiful countryside that are unique in Britain. The landscape has a rich historic and built heritage as generations have successively shaped the area, and a rich legacy of cultural associations that bring an extra dimension and depth of understanding to our appreciation of the Dorset Landscape.
This nationally designated AONB covers 380 sq miles of countryside overlapping the boundaries of Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset.
It is a diverse landscape offering areas of rolling chalk grassland, ancient woodlands, chalk escarpments, downland hillsides and chalk river valleys each with a distinct and recognisable character. The landscapes of the AONB today, as they were in the past, are extraordinarily rich.
