Plan Your Dream Holiday in Dorset

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 holiday cottages are the perfect base from which to discover Dorset 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.
