To celebrate English Tourism Week 2019 we have created an 'insiders’ guide' to Dorset based on both well-known spots as well as local treasures that our team have chosen just for you. We absolutely love working and living surrounded by our amazing countryside and coastline and we hope you enjoy finding out more about it. From the lively towns of Poole and Bournemouth to the stunning Jurassic Coast and more, there's something for everyone. 

Blue Pool near Wareham

Our first Dorset pick comes from Jess who works in our finance team. When she’s not balancing the books here at Kite she absolutely loves exploring with her two little ones and has chosen Blue Pool near Wareham as her recommendation for you. Her family love the sandy walk, fab playgrounds and also all the bug hunting opportunities! You can find out more here.

Brownsea Island

This is one of Dorset's best-known locations, famous for its wildlife and its role in the Scout Movement. For Marie, who looks after our wonderful stockists, she loves that her small person can run wild and free whilst exploring all of the amazing things this special little island has to offer. Discover Brownsea here.

St. Catherine's Hill

Robert was the first of team to share his favourite place in Dorset. He chose St. Catherine's Hill because he used go walking with his Dad every Saturday around the hill and look out to Christchurch, the bay and towards Hengistbury Head. He still heads out to the hill now as it's a great place for peaceful walks and exploring nature. Find out more about this lovely nature reserve here. (Image courtesy of BCP Council)

Christchurch Quay

When Elizabeth isn’t here at Kite creating so many of our fabulous prints and designs, she loves visiting Christchurch Quay. You can hire boats and sail on the River Stour and also relax and have some fun on the Quomps, a great area containing a splash park and children's play area. Find out more here.

Evening Hill

Our final pick for English Tourism Week 2019 was made by Sandrine who spends her working day making sure all of our customers receive exceptional service. She plumped for Evening Hill in Lilliput, which is where she stopped to have a glass of champagne with all of her guests on her wedding day. Whenever she passes, day or night, the beautiful view gives her a little shiver.

There simply weren’t enough days to share all of our favourite places so here are a few more that the Kite team recommended just for you:

• Moors Valley
• Corfe Castle
• Worbarrow Bay
• Pamphill
• Kingston Mauward
• Hengistbury Head
• Barford Farm

We hope you've enjoyed our Kite travel guide to Dorset and its treasures. Our team absolutely loved being your tour guides and choosing their favourite places to share with you. We’d love to hear about your adventures if you become a Dorset tourist for a short break or longer holiday. Adventures ahoy!
