I'm doing a driving tour of southwest England in September, and I'm planning on staying one night in Abbotsbury, just outside Dorchester. The town of Abbotsbury looks adorable, and we were planning to take a walk on one of the paths near the coast there, then drive into Dorchester and take a walking tour of Thomas Hardy landmarks, then visit his home near there.
Does that sound like a good plan? Any pro's/con's on the area, or good tips for places to eat in Abbotsbury or Dorchester? Thanks!
