8 Christmas Cottages in Dorset for 2017

Remember that film, The Holiday? This is the place to find cottages for Christmas that look just like that.

Thatched roofs heavy with snow (or at least a generous sparkly frost) down winding country lanes, a roaring log fire and cosy sense of well-being. Those things were all present in that movie starring Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz but all-star cast aside, Dorset has plenty of picture-postcard places to stay where you can live out your festive dreams.

Christmas getaways in Dorset are everything you'd hope with the rolling landscapes and miles of Jurassic coastline. Find frosty fossils at Charmouth and eat Christmas fudge at the end of the pier in Lyme Regis, or head around the harbour to Bournemouth for a big town day out.

Stay inland in a rural delight lit with Christmas lights and check out the Christmas markets for last minute pressies - Sherborne has a particularly good one, or head to an historical highlight and see somewhere like Corfe Castle in all its wintry glory.

All these places are best discovered with man's best friend at your side, so plan Christmas breaks with dogs in mind. There's many a winter walk to discover across the county when you book a holiday cottage for Christmas in Dorset.
