Hi , for the first time in a good few years hubby and I will be able to holiday together next year and we love Dorset , is there a nice quiet place near or on a sandy beach with access to swimming in the sea. We don't mind self catering or b & b , a small quiet caravan site even , all the ones I've found look big and noisy. I just want somewhere we can enjoy the beach and coastal walks of the beautiful county..

West Bay is lovely, a small town, not full of hotels, not far from Bridport.

And Portland - again not full of hotels and commercialism. However, when we visited last year there was a lot of roadworks etc preparing for the Olympics so may be worth keeping in mind!
I loved Portland - we only visited for a weekend for a Christening but it was beautiful!
Good luck with your holiday smile

Sorry that could be misleading - the roadworks etc weren't on Portland but on approach road etc mainly around Weymouth!
