If you're looking for the perfect place to spend a much-needed family holiday, book a luxury self-catering cottage near the beach. Take your breakfast whilst looking out over sapphire waters and watch as the kids play games in the sand. There's space for granny and granddad too if you book a big family-friendly cottage in Dorset. 

Holidays by the sea aren't just about groups though. If you would like some time for reflection and want to soak in the sounds of the sea in your own private haven, choose a 1 bed cottage for a solo retreat. Many of our cottages are dog-friendly too, so if you take your holiday outside of the summer season your dog may be able to make use of the beach for fun and games too.
