RE: The area around Dorchester
We were there last July - you can see the photos on my pages. Abbotsbury is a beautiful village but we stayed near Beaminster so did not look at accommodation or eating facilities.
Dorchester is a good town to visit too and I have some photos on my pages too.
No real cons - the locals are not always too tourist oriented despite the fact tourists pump a lot of money in to the local economy - I got the impression is small places that tourists were a nuisance.
Beware that there were two Thomas Hardy's - if you read my pages you will see why.
