About us

Specialising in holidays by the coast

Get to know us at Dorset Coastal Cottages

We are Dorset Coastal Cottages, an agency specialising in charming self-catering holiday cottages and apartments by the sea in Dorset. We started as a small family-run local business established in 1992, which over the course of more than 25 years has grown from a single holiday cottage to more than 200 holiday properties.

We have a thorough knowledge of all of our properties as well as our local area and we aim to surprise and delight our guests by providing quality accommodation to excellent standards. We understand the importance of creating a home-from-home feel with all the mod cons, enhanced with inspired personal touches and added extras that give each property a unique quality.

Holiday the Dorset way

Dorset is ideal for a self-catering cottage holiday. With properties spanning the entire coast of this beautiful county from Studland Bay to Lyme Regis, you’ll never be more than 10 miles from the coast. Discover sandy beaches at Studland, Swanage, Weymouth and Lyme Regis, plus many shingle beaches peppering the coastline with snorkelling and diving available off ledges and rocky coves all along the way.  There is more than 3,000 miles of countryside paths to enjoy - perfect for ramblers, hikers and dog-walkers too, as well as quaint villages to explore.

We love traditional cottages with thatched roofs, open fires and big gardens, but we also love high-specification stylish apartments with stunning sea or harbour views as well as barn conversions and pretty chocolate-box cottages. For the pick of English country cottages to rent for your holiday by the sea, take a break with Dorset Coastal Cottages.
