Cognatum has five estates in Dorset, to be found in Puddletown, Bournemouth, Iwerne Minster, Cerne Abbas, and Shaftesbury. Castle Gardens at Shaftesbury is managed by Blue Cedar Homes Management Company - part of Cognatum Estates. The rugged beauty of the Jurassic coastline has been attracting people to the area for hundreds of years, swelling the bustling coastal resorts of Weymouth and Swanage and the elegant seaside towns of Lyme and Bournemouth. The rolling beaches of Hengistbury Head and Studland Bay, and the dramatic coastline and rock formations at Lulworth cove, are complimented by the many pretty towns and villages tucked away in the countryside. A good road network criss-crosses the county and Bournemouth airport offers direct flights to many European destinations.
