Cottages for May half-term in Dorset

With blossom on the trees and young animals dancing about in the fields, May half term is the perfect time for a holiday to the coast or country. Make the most of the beautiful outdoors with wonderful walks down country lanes or along sandy beaches, or get out the bikes and explore sections of the Dorset coast on two wheels. With plenty of family-friendly things to do at attractions such as National Trust-managed Kingston Lacy and The Tank Museum, you’re sure to find a great way to entertain the children during this half term. A particularly special Dorset experience is to visit the Abbotsbury Swannery where, at this time of year, you can see fluffy cygnets hatch from eggs. Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, SEALIFE in Weymouth and Adventure Wonderland are all wonderful attractions for entertaining children while the vast Jurassic Coast offers beaches and the winding South West Coast Path – ideal for active kids who need to walk (or run) off some steam. Discover breathtaking cliff-top views and collect fossils along this unique coastline.

Our holiday cottages throughout Dorset offer a whole range of beautiful settings, wonderful amenities and something for all ages – from eight to 80 – ideal for your May half-term holiday in the UK. Stay in a thatched cottage with a wood burner so you and your family can curl up around the fire each evening to play board games or watch films. Treat yourself to a hot tub cottage where the grown-ups can indulge in relaxing evenings after days out and about exploring Dorset, or find yourself a dog-friendly May half-term property with an enclosed garden so that your kids and the dogs can run and play while you watch them from the comfort of the patio. We have large houses for big groups, family-friendly lodges and retreats, and romantic couples’ getaways all along the beautiful Dorset coastline. Start browsing through our collection and find yourself the perfect May half-term cottage.
