Holiday cottages in Dorset

Looking for an amazing staycation in one of the most beautiful regions of the UK? Look no further than Dorset cottages for self-catering accommodation that’s full of character, complete with all the mod cons and even a few little luxuries too. Step onto the pages of a Thomas Hardy novel and into a historic cottage, or enjoy plenty of space – and perhaps even your very own swimming pool – in a larger modern property, all within easy reach of Dorset’s stunning countryside and its fabulous coastline.

The green rolling hills, rugged coastline and medieval castles that characterise the county give it a distinctly romantic feel. Ideal for weekend getaways, you’ll find plenty of amazing holiday cottages in Dorset, from former farmhouses to smaller rural retreats that are ideal for couples. Perhaps you’re looking to explore the countryside and are looking for something well placed near to the South West Coastal Path? Well, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Why choose Dorset holiday cottages?

Dorset has so much to offer tourists. Head south and you’ll reach magnificent cliff tops and unspoiled beaches, such as West Bay and Sudland, great for a few dramatic holiday snaps. Step back in time – really, really far back – and take a walk along the Jurassic Coast, a wonderful excursion for families and any fans of dinosaurs. Who knows, you may even find your very own fossil to take home!

If dinosaurs are just a little bit too antique for your tastes, why not step into the pages of a Victorian novel? Thomas Hardy’s fictional Casterbridge was based on the county town of Dorchester, which is well worth a visit today, even if you’re not a fan of the oh-so-sad-novel. It’s full of character and packed with historic buildings and monuments, including a statue dedicated to Thomas Hardy, and a Roman town house. If the kids haven’t had their fix of the prehistoric, there’s even a dinosaur museum for good measure.

Holiday cottages in Dorset are perfect for families or couples or are looking for an authentic holiday experience in a beautiful county. Step back in time and into holiday accommodation that’s full of history and character, and enjoy a holiday you’ll remember forever.

    "We were disappointed with the cottage and felt it was not good value for money. We didn't mind that it wasn't spotlessly clean but the kitchen pans, kettle etc. are old and worn and the frying pan warped when heated - not good on a ceramic type electric hob. The dishwasher is good but generally hot water in the kitchen was a problem so we resorted to the kettle. The furnishings on the whole are old but nevertheless reasonably comfortable. There is only a tiny rail to hang towels in the shower room and there is nowhere to hang coats so wet weather would be a problem. We found having to go through the shower room to access the main bedroom very inconvenient. The main bedroom is very large but I found the bed too firm for me. The upstairs rooms are very pleasant particularly the twin bedded room with its little loo and wash basin. The garden is pleasant and secure for the dog but a specific sitting area would be nice rather than just a table and fold up chairs near the bins. A nice touch was the vase of garden flowers and the tray with tea and cake.A pleasant village with an excellent, friendly village shop."

    "Well, what a find. A brilliant home away from home in lovely West Bay. This property is perfect for a family holiday. Very well maintained with everything we needed (and more) including three toilets. The only thing missing for me was a hairdryer but I should have packed one. The main bedroom pillows weren't very comfy but I'm sure they would be for some. There's a large children's park, a Spar, lots of restaurants & pubs, a bakery and a beautiful beach all within walking distance. The house has WiFi and it's needed for researching attractions as local phone reception is terrible. Take some DVDs or an iPad with hdmi connection to watch movies in the evening. The harbour is great for crab fishing and there's a great swimming pool at the west bay holiday park site open to the public. We had a brilliant stay and Dorset provided something different to do with young children every day for 2 weeks. A super summer holiday."

    "Wonderful cottage in a wonderful location. Classic thatched cottage with good parking and nice garden with a bbq and garden table and chairs.Owners next door respected our privacy but have some useful info about area.Well equipped kitchen was clean and good for preparing meals. Was surprised to find tea, coffee, sugar, milk and cake when we arrived.Plenty of towels provided and liquid soap.Bedrooms were great especially the master bedroom which had French Windows that opened on to the garden.Shower was adequate but not great if you are used to a power shower. If I could request one more feature it would be Wi-Fi although my party liked the cut off aspect in terms of internet access.Great value for money. Would go back again. We had a wonderful stay in this great cottage in super countryside."

    "Cottage clean and comfortably with good size enclosed garden. Owners (living next door) very welcoming and helpful. Local pub (Gaggle of Geese) currently only open 4 evenings a week and Sunday lunchtime but excellent food served. Dogs allowed in the pub and locals very friendly. All nearby villages have a public house serving food. Local shop convenient but expensive. Nearby 13th century church worth a visit.Plenty of local areas for walking dogs. Ringstead worth visiting where you can drive to the National Trust area and walk along the downs, with dogs, and enjoy fantastic views across to Portland, or take the private road (charge made) to Ringstead Bay with shop, café, toilets and where dogs are allowed on the beach."

    "S19670 proved to be a splendid holiday home - we only wish we could have stayed longer. The house is very well furnished and decorated to a high spec. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The washing machine and utility area is also very handy.The beds are very comfortable too.The garden is also well equipped with outdoor furniture and BBQ and beach items.The owner was friendly, helpful and provided a generous welcome hamper, which was an unexpected treat.The living room is very comfortable with lovely furniture and TV/board games. There is no wifi which disappointed the younger ones in our group, but there is plenty of free wifi in the area (including the pub at the end of the road)."
