Charming towns, gorgeous countryside and miles of stunning coastline ensure Dorset has something for everyone. Its Jurassic coastline is a World Heritage Site while hill forts, castles, and quaint villages wait to be discovered. Book Dorset accommodation in Weymouth or Poole for watersports fun or enjoy a romantic break in rustic Dorset holiday cottages in Shaftesbury with its steep cobbled streets or the tiny historic village of Abbotsbury. Ideal for a day spent exploring the swan sanctuary. Enjoy all the comforts of home in Dorset holiday cottages and apartments while having the freedom to come and go as you please.
For seaside fun, choose holiday accommodation in Bournemouth. Visit the Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum for a journey through its eccentric exhibits while Bournemouth's university adds a trendy buzz to the nightlife. Accommodation in Bournemouth with its pier and safe beaches provides a great base for family holidays. If, however, you want to get away from it all choose Dorset holiday cottages near Lulworth Cove. Explore rock pools and enjoy watersports in the turquoise waters or relax by sunbathing and swimming. Looking for accommodation in romantic surroundings? Then Lyme Regis is delightful. Walk in the footsteps of Jane Austen's characters then take a sunset stroll on the Cobb before dining on freshly caught seafood.
