Self-catering Dorset accommodation picked just for you
If you find holidays in the UK a little disappointing, you're in for a treat. Dorset is tailor-made for those who know how to squeeze life for all it’s worth. Whether traversing the jaw-dropping Jurassic Coast on a coasteering adventure or feeling the wind in your hair as you cycle along the chalk hills and rolling Dorset Downs, this is the perfect destination for a one-of-a-kind UK short break. It’s not all about adrenaline kicks though, you may prefer a more relaxing day of fossil hunting or building sandcastles in Swanage, and you can’t beat tucking into some paper-wrapped fish and chips on the prom of Lyme Regis. Best of all, summers are longer and winters are milder in this part of the world, so what better excuse for a break away from the norm?
With great swathes of the county covered by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are plenty of opportunities to lace up your walking boots and seek out some ‘Insta-worthy’ views. And when you’re feeling peckish, drift into one of Dorset’s picture-postcard villages where tearooms, thatched cottages and hearty alehouses await. And if you really want to feel like you’ve wandered into a living, breathing Thomas Hardy novel, take advantage of one of our holiday cottages in Dorset. From country breaks to coastal houses and dog-friendly cottages with a myriad of walkies around every corner, our handpicked hideaways are perfect for some cloud-nine time.
