Enjoy Our Rural Cottage Retreats in Dorset

Put the breaks on the rush of every day life and take some time for yourself. A rural retreat in Dorset gives you the time for reflection and some much needed TLC. Pick the holiday of your dreams and soak in the sights and fresh, clean air. Once you've arrived at your perfect cottage, enjoy total comfort in your very own home from home. A country getaway in Dorset can't be beaten. 

For an escape to the country, Dorset is at the top of the list. Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and the Old Harry Rocks are just the first things that come to mind, and there is plenty more to explore. With Dorset's naturally jaw-dropping aesthetics and with so much to see and do, you might be wondering what could make your holiday even better.

At Classic Cottages, we understand the importance of excellent accommodation to send your holiday from ordinary into the realms of fantastic. Every single one of our luxury rural retreats is personally inspected and fully equipped so that your self catering experience is the best possible. All that's left for you to do? Relax and enjoy.
