What's the Story? - We were frequent visitors to Knowlton Church when the kids were small, they loved playing in the long grass and we loved the peace and tranquility, somewhat surprising when you consider the hollow shell of Knowlton church, one of the most atmospheric places in Dorset, is also...
What's the Story? - Ringstead Bay on the Jurassic Coast is a well kept secret, a charming bay with pebble beach, clear water and views across Weymouth Bay to Portland. On the day we visited the seaweed washed up by the tide had dried to a crisp rich dark terracotta, contrasting perfectly...
