If eating fruit and veg is more your cup of tea than growing it then you’ll be well looked after with many local markets and roadside stalls to tempt your tastebuds across the region.
The people living in Dorset are relaxed and friendly and the natural environment presents countless opportunities for exploration and adventure or for peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of city lifestyles.

From raising a family to contemplating retirement you would be hard pressed to find a better lifestyle than that of the North East.
