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.

What our customers are saying about our holiday cottages in dorset.

    Verified purchase

    "Lovely lodge, very clean and the goodie basket was a nice touch. However the park is quite isolated. The shop was pretty basic and the pub wasn't open till 5 so nowhere to get a breakfast or lunch. The veranda could do with a canopy over as it is a woodland setting the birds (pigeons) pooped all over the outside furniture and even in the hot tub which put us off getting in it and ended up in us coming home early. The bikes are great to use on the nearby cycle path. The staff on reception were quite rude and not very courteous on arrival and again when I phoned about a missing barbecue."

    "Everything to do with the break was fine and would have scored 10s all round except for the following: - Hot tub not usable on night of arrival (when you only have 3 nights and especially when because of traffic you don't arrive until 6:00Pm, you would expect the hot tub to be at least usable, even if not up to full temperature). The "Merley Inn" being shut, when the website clearly states that all facilities (other than the outdoor pool) are available all year round! The last thing we wanted to have to do after an 8 hour journey was to drive again off site to find a pub / restaurant."

    "This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The cabin was fantastic, so well laid out with everything you need for your stay. The cake, bread and milk are a really nice touch. The cabin is located really well for getting out and about to beautiful places. Personally we kept wanting to come back to the cabin and it's beautiful setting. Hot tub was really nice. John and his staff were as friendly as before, which is not difficult as they are genuinely really nice people. Will definitely be visiting again."
