Dorset is beautiful - it's official

Dorset has come fifth in a survey ranking the quality of life in each county in Britain.

Country Life magazine published the results based on an assessment of each county’s health services, green policies, schools, social fabric, heritage and landscape.

Other factors taken into consideration included the quality of local food, pubs and restaurants, the number of sunshine hours and village greens there are and how many famous or influential residents the county has.

Devon swept into first place just ahead of Hampshire in second and Kent in third while Dorset came in fifth – beating Wiltshire, Cornwall and Suffolk.
