They did not need any improvement. I dont know who I spoke to the couple of times I rang but they were brilliant. So friendly and knowledgable. Superb. All the paperwork and instructions were perfect.

Excellent response to queries prior to departure .

J Robinson Below Decks June 2024, June 2024

From the outset Dorset Cottage Holidays were brilliant.
After initially just missing our first choice property we were offered the possibility of
Castle View House ,which at the time was not ready for hire.
With prompt replies to emails and phone calls, in particular from Domi and Leanne, we felt confident making a booking and we were so glad we did.

Dorset Holiday Cottage

Dorset cottage holidays have become increasingly popular as more people look to explore the most beautiful places across the UK. With stunning scenery and so many things to do, Dorset promises an unforgettable break away. Since the region has avoided major development, it’s managed to retain its charm and beauty whilst offering a relaxed and laid back way of life.

Our Dorset holiday cottages are the perfect base from which to discover the region in all its glory. Most are located nearby to the coast, which means they’re in close proximity to many magnificent beaches. The splendid Jurassic coast has been awarded World Heritage Site status, with spots such as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door particularly well renowned. Whether you want to enjoy sunbathing, swimming, rock-pooling, or even fossil hunting, you won’t have to look too hard to find a perfect sandy beach.

Of course, superb beaches aren’t all that Dorset has going for it. The region also showcases traditional rural England at its finest. With unspoilt countryside, quaint and picturesque villages, and friendly pubs and inns where you can enjoy the very best local food and drink, you’ll be well catered for.
