Holidays in Dorset, UK – Dorset is ideal for a self catering cottage holiday, being closer to London and the South-East, it has more sunshine and less rain than Devon or Cornwall. The majority of our holiday cottages are old, with gardens, most have open fires, many are thatched and over half allow pets. For the pick of English country cottages take a holiday with Dorset Coastal Cottages. Our Dorset self catering holiday properties are either in a traditional village within 10 miles of the Jurassic Coast or near the beach in one of our lovely seaside towns. You can be sure that with us, your vacation or weekend break will be in an excellent standard of self catering accommodation.

Dorset walking holidays and beach holidays – The sea is always close and there are sandy beaches at Studland, Swanage, Weymouth and Lyme Regis, plus many shingle beaches. Snorkelling and diving are available off ledges and rocky coves all over the county. The South-West Coast Path allows you to walk on unspoiled coastline from Poole to Lyme Regis and inland there are 3000 miles of footpaths, so you can walk in beautiful countryside from any of our holiday cottages.

Dog friendly cottages
Around half of our holiday cottages are dog friendly, so you can enjoy long walks with your best friend along the South West Coast Path and visit our dog friendly beaches. Most of our country pubs accept pets too, so a bracing winter walk can be finished with a well-earned drink and your dog warming himself in front of the fire.
