Cerne Abbas

Cerne Abbas is a pretty, quiet village in Dorchester that is famous for the Cerne Giant, a 180ft chalk figure carved into a hillside. Believed to bless couples with fertility and a long, happy marriage, there’s a beautiful spot with breath-taking views by St Catherine’s Chapel, the perfect setting to pop the question.

Durdle Door
