Self-Catering Cottages in Dorset for September

See Dorset bathed in the late summer sunshine this September and enjoy the opportunity to unwind. September enjoys a slower pace with many of Dorset's summer crowds tapering off and the county truly relaxed under blue skies. Whether you are looking for a solo adventure, romantic retreat or catch up with friends in luxury accommodation, enjoy a dream holiday in a Classic cottage. 

From country to coast, make the most of Dorset's natural gems and patchwork of towns and villages this September. With life slowing down a gear as children go back to school and summer visitors head home, September is a wonderful time for a Dorset getaway. Walk, talk and explore by day and then when you are ready to turn in, open the door to your dream home-from-home. At Classic Cottages we know a thing or two about what makes holidays great and will always go the extra mile to make sure your whole experience is the best it can be. Across Dorset, our cottages are wide in variety and consistent in quality. Many are dog-friendly too, which is great news for your four-legged friend.  Take a look at our 14 available cottages and secure your September retreat today.
