From coast to countryside, our idyllic corner of the southwest is the perfect holiday location for families, couples and individuals. Whether you’re looking for a laid-back break, or an adventure-packed half-term getaway, our Dorset holiday rentals offer the perfect base for you to explore this wonderful slice of the UK. When you think of Dorset, you may picture the iconic, crumbling white-edged cliffs of Old Harry Rocks, the peaceful white-sand beaches of Studland or the rolling green-meadow hills of Purbeck. Historic and natural, our quaint seaside towns and stone-clad villages rival those in neighbouring counties, and with many landmarks and attractions, no moment spent in Dorset will be a dull one.

Dorset Holiday Lets

For Families with Children or Babies

Travelling with a baby or young children can feel pretty daunting. Especially when the places you travel to are ill-equipped for your arrival or lack the amenities to guarantee a relaxing and secure stay. While many of Dorset’s family-friendly attractions provide baby-changing facilities and pushchair-friendly pathways, having this accessibility wherever you choose to stay is even more important.

Many of our Dorset holiday lets have been designed with young families in mind. Our baby-friendly holiday cottages are equipped with a travel cot, stairgate, high chair and baby-friendly crockery and cutlery – plus more – so, parents with young children can travel to the county with the assurance that we already have the essentials waiting for them. For parents traveling with older children, we have a great collection of family-friendly cottages in Dorset for your next family getaway.

Romantic Escapes

to Dorset for Couples

In The Holiday, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law set the tone for the perfect cottage romance, making a charming countryside retreat the obvious choice for couples wanting to escape the city for a few days. And you’re in luck – if a quiet break by the coast is what you and your partner crave, we have a great range of Dorset romantic cottages situated in our favourite villages, overlooking the sea, or nestled just off the beaten track.

Dog running on the beach
Pet Friendly

Dorset Holiday Lets

One of the bonuses of choosing to holiday in the UK is that your furry companion doesn’t have to miss out. This is a great option for families who can’t bear the thought of checking their four-legged friend into kennels, or those who don’t have the heart to leave their dogs behind. Dorset is one of the best counties to visit with your dogs in tow. Many of our beaches are dog-friendly all year round, and with lovely woodland trails and the South West Coast Path to keep you occupied, a scenic walk with your dog is only ever a stone’s throw away.

We know finding accommodation that allows pets can be a tricky task. Hotels are usually a no-go, and campsites don’t offer enough comfort – especially when the weather in England is a little unpredictable. That’s why we offer a great range of dog-friendly cottages that can accommodate one or more pets. In various locations, many of these cottages feature enclosed gardens for added peace of mind and all we ask is that you bring your dog’s own bed with you.
