This charming character cottage is an ideal getaway within walking distance to the Jurassic Coast and boasts a cosy wood burner and a pretty, secluded cottage garden which is fully enclosed. 

Self-catering holiday accommodation for short breaks

Dorset is the ideal destination for a short break, far more accessible for a two or three-night stay than Devon or Cornwall. For a few days, feel the restorative power of breathing clean air, absorbing a spectacular landscape, enjoying a quiet supper in a country pub and returning to a cosy cottage with an open fire, on a short break in Dorset. 

Dorset weekend breaks

When you only have a weekend to spare, you will be looking for a destination that is easy to get to and has a little of everything on offer. 

Dorset can deliver on everything, from beautiful beaches and charming towns and villages, to award-winning attractions and fabulous local food and drink.   A Dorset weekend break, whether as a couple, a family, or with the dog in tow, will be just what you are looking for when you need a few days away

Whether you are looking for a fun weekend away with friends or a quieter mid-week getaway, our short breaks in Dorset promise to leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, restored and recharged. From Lulworth to Weymouth and Purbeck to Swanage, our Dorset mini-breaks are perfect for when you need to get away for a few days but don't have the luxury of being able to take a long holiday. We have big properties for large groups, thatched cottages for couples on a romantic escape and dog-friendly retreats where pets are welcome on a dog-friendly short break. There is no better place to spend a few days away.
