There’s something undeniably magical about a luxury holiday in Dorset, England. There’s just some kind of natural energy that you can tune into, that allows you to feel the buzz of the earth, amplified and coursing through your body in a very real way – completely different to anywhere Nathan and I have ever been fortunate enough to travel to during our yachting years…
Dorset is different. You notice this buzz from how people here engage with each other in the townships, the general hubbub of chatter in the pubs to the warm smiles in the streets. You can feel it in the forests, standing alone amongst the towering trees. You can feel it in the soft caress of the sun on your skin, enveloping you like a warm hug to soothe and comfort you…
You can really feel this intense energy, if you’re able to align yourself right, in every natural wonder you come across, from gardens full of beautiful flowers to waterfalls and hilltops that take your breath away and remind you to take a moment to enjoy the little things in life.
Our English Cottage Vacation is a luxury holiday that builds upon these natural magical elements of Dorset to create the ultimate magical, luxurious experience.
How do we do this? We work tirelessly to give the best experiences to our guests, pairing Dorset’s naturally tranquil environment with immaculate, hands-on service at our cottage so that you don’t have to lift a finger and you can get as much rest as you need to feel refreshed.
But there’s so much more to unpack about Dorset and the power it possesses to energise you. There’s actually a scientific answer to why Dorset holds the power to make you feel a certain kind of way, allowing you to return to feeling more like yourself again – and the answer seems to lie, surprisingly, in ley lines.
So, what are ley lines & why are all of the greatest ancient structures built on them?
What Are Ley Lines?
Ley lines are believed to be connections between historic structures and significant, prominent landmarks. These connections are considered straight lines forming channels of special energy that link these structures and landmarks.
Dorset is home to one of the most mysterious, prominent historic structures — Stonehenge. The majestic site is a simple ring of stones standing tall and proud, with more stones laid on top of each. Many believe that this mysterious structure is a ley line hub, making it rich in earth energy.
This same magical energy seems to explain the pull Stonehenge has on everyone who visits Dorset and can’t help but make a trip to “ooh” and “ahh” over the ring of stones. After seeing the structure of mythical origins, many are left invigorated by the allure of its mystery and some believe this is because of the powerful energy the site gives off.
Why Are All The Greatest Ancient Structures Built On Ley Lines?
Ancient lore talks of the lure of ley lines and how this led to many great ancient structures being built on them, such as Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Giza. This history of ley lines aligns with observations made by a landscape photographer named Alfred Watkins, that ancient sites near each other seem to be aligned.
Based on these observations, he believed that these sites and prominent landmarks were used as navigation points, so the lines connecting them were essentially the routes people followed in prehistoric times to get from one place to another.
Considering the lack of infrastructure back then, it’s not such a stretch to conclude that the lines connecting these different structures and sites around the world were meant to help with navigation.
Even though there are new agers and others who believe they can feel the energy emanating from the ley lines at these places, hence why most of them are revered and considered sacred by some. It’s possible they also believe the structures were purposefully built on the ley lines to draw up earth energy from them and give off magical powers that rejuvenate whoever absorbs them.
What does all of this mean?
Whether ley lines are actually magical or not, we believe Dorset truly has restorative powers and a vacation here does wonders for you.
