Our Dorset holiday cottages provide you with the perfect base to explore the county’s varied sights and attractions, from Monkey World (a family favourite!) to the beaches of Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Dorset has many short break towns too, where you can spend a few days seeing the sights, learning about the local history and sampling some delicious food and drink. Even dogs can enjoy short breaks in Dorset, as many of our cottages are dog-friendly.
