Dorset Cottages

Our exclusive holiday cottages in Dorset cater for every holiday from a dog friendly holiday on The Jurassic Coast to a short break for two in Lyme Regis. Fill up your family holiday in Dorset with visits to Durdle Door and Studland bay for child friendly days out. Our collection of Dorset escapes ranges from country breaks to coastal houses, all handpicked and inspected by our local team. We have a great selection of holiday homes in Dorset that go the extra mile to make your holiday special.

Dorset is a land steeped in history, from the fossils at Charmouth on the Jurassic Coast to the pier at Lyme Regis, famed by the French Lieutenant and that famous kiss. Venture to inland Dorset, with its hamlets of thatched cottages, beamed pubs and watermills, and you'll feel as though you've walked into a living, breathing Thomas Hardy novel.

The majority of Dorset is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which says it all - a self catering holiday cottage in Dorset will be in a pretty village, or have lovely views, plus half the county boundary is coastal for waterside holidays. Its famous coastline is the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, with stunning landforms such as Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door.

There are many historic and beautiful towns to explore, from Sherborne with its Abbey, to Cerne Abbas with its famous giant, and down to the tip of Portland for local quarrystone. From Lyme Regis in the west, past Charmouth, Weymouth, and then Corfe Castle near Swanage and Studland, and Bournemouth in the east of the county, there are many different places to explore.

We have 50 luxury self catering cottages in Dorset.
