Last year I went to stay on Chessel Beach. I was slightly disappointed when I arrived to find that the back garden looked onto a hill of pebbles and beyond this was the sea.
I visited Dorset for the first time in October 2010. One of my favourite beaches was Lyme Regis. Many years ago I read a book by John Fowles called The French Lieutenant’s Woman which is set in Lyme Regis in the 19th century. There is a small harbour which still has the original buildings used by the local fishing industry. I just love the colours of the fishing nets.
