If the last 2 years have taught us anything it’s how important nature can be to our state of mind and wellbeing. We’ve come up with some great ideas for you to bring nature into your lives this Christmas – read on and make the most of Dorset’s Natural Health Service.

We are lucky in Dorset to have so many outstanding views – across hills, vales, heathland and sea. With these great views often comes steep climbs but for those of you who need to take things a bit easier we’ve selected some great views you can drive or bus to.

Have a look at our suggestions below and head out for a festive feast for your eyes. If you have time to sit a while and enjoy the view (wrap up warm), the fresh air-filled rest and relaxation will soothe your soul!

If you feel like you want to explore – or send the family off for a stroll – many of these viewpoints have short walk options too, look out for the information panels at each site for more details.
