August in Dorset is the perfect time to enjoy a summer getaway and escape for a while. On the coast, the soaring white spine of the Jurassic Coast is illuminated by the bright summer sun, and inland parks, villages and towns come into their own. All over the county, colours splash the landscape from delicate wild flowers peppering the countryside to multi-toned beach huts lining seafronts.

If it has been a busy year, summer provides a wonderful opportunity to take some time out, giving into a solo escape or gathering up the whole family to catch up on quality time together. When August rolls around, the mere call of the summer is enough reason to take a step back from the daily grind and seize the opportunity to unwind.
