Dorset is a delightful holiday destination full of winding country lanes and picturesque landscapes, even in mid-winter making it a lovely place to spend Christmas and New Year in a cottage.

Settle yourself in a self catering cottage on the Jurassic Coast this Christmas and find fossilized stocking fillers on a Christmas Eve stroll along the beach. Strike out along the coastline once more in this beautiful part of the world on Boxing Day and return to the warmth and comfort of your luxury cottage for Christmas.

New Years Eve with a view is something to remember so find yourself a New Years cottage near Corfe Castle, have a short break by Wareham Quay or watch firework displays over the water from a place with a sea view. New Years in Dorset will make your celebrations all the more celebratory.
