Dorset's Delicious Bits | An Introduction

Gold Hill

I am one-hundred percent, head-over-heels, in love with this county…

…it is firmly attached to my heart with lots of little Dorsety strings of happiness!

If Dorset was represented at the Olympic Games, in the opening ceremony; I would want to be the person at the front, with the perma-grin, waving the swishy flag in one of those matchy outfits.

So much so, that I wanted to start a series of posts on the blog, documenting some of the many delicious, little morsels that make this place so beautiful, welcoming and just, well, brilliant!

The things that get featured might not always be the obvious stunning coastlines, rolling fields or sleepy villages (although they may get a cheeky look in), but more of the unsuspecting joyous bits, which make you want to sit and relax with a hot chocolate and get that lovely contented feeling…

To start the series off, I wanted to show you an iconic Dorset sight…

…Gold Hill in Shaftesbury.

Especially since the delicious bit is not only the view but the fact that you can sit at the top, in one of the loveliest tea shops/ restaurants around and take it all in, while eating millionaire’s shortbread or a grilled panini with chutney.

I would advise booking a table at The Salt Cellar restaurant, in advance, if you are planning on lunch and definitely want a window with arguably one of the best views in the county.
