Next, travel North to where Blackmore Vale dominates the landscape and extends to the west. Then you will find yourself in the woodlands and hills of Dorset.
After that, make your way south to where you can explore the Dorset Downs where you will find hundreds of native Downs sheep. Together with quaint cottages, you will find shops selling woolen goods made from the local furry residents!
Your trip to the south will also include miles of sandy beaches and the high chalkland of a Cranborne chase. The most disabled and wheelchair accessible way to make this trip is to rent an adapted vehicle and/or have a driver with you.
