Dorset Retreats in December

Nestle among wild frost-laced countryside, sit back high above the Jurassic Coast as rolling seas stir up a show, or snuggle up in a charming village and wander streets lined with Christmas lights and decorations. However you'd like to spend your Dorset getaway and whoever you'd like to share it with, make your December unforgettable.Read more
