A breathtaking retreat surrounded by Dorset’s rolling countryside, this property in West Burton provides the perfect getaway for couples looking for a romantic break together.

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.

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 too. There is no better place to spend a few days away.
