Blackmore Vale from Bulbarrow Hill
The vale is part of the Stour valley, part of the Dorset AONB and part of the natural region known as the Blackmoor Vale and Vale of Wardour. The vale is bordered by the Dorset Downs, a chalk ridge to the south; Cranborne Chase, chalk hills to the east; and the watershed between the Stour and Yeo valleys to the northwest which generally follows close to the borders between north Dorset, south Somerset and west Dorset.
