Dorset holiday cottages

Dorset is a county dominated by the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and natural wonders of Durdle Door, Old Harry Rocks, the Isle of Purbeck and Portland Bill. The ancient Corfe Castle and Sherborne Old & New Castles add a royal twist to your Dorset holiday.

Dorset is a foodie heaven with an abundance of local farmers' markets and cookery schools as well as plenty of holiday cottages where you can cook up a storm to create holiday favourites. Fish and chips by the sea and picnics in the forests all add up to fun in Dorset.
