Short Breaks

Relax and Unwind with a Short Break in a Dorset Coastal Cottage…

Dorset is the ideal destination for a short break, far more accessible for a 3 night stay than Devon or Cornwall (2 night stays now available for 2016). So take advantage of the relatively short travel times to book a short break in a Dorset Coastal Cottage.

Mid week Mon – Fri short breaks are 4 nights for the price of 3 all year round.

Take a Dorset Coastal Cottages Short Break and 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.

You’ll go home refreshed, relaxed, restored and recharged.

Out of the Summer Season to visit Dorset during the tranquil months from Autumn to Spring is often to see it at its most beautiful.

Our cottages are available year round and ‘out of season’ prices are roughly half the peak summer rental, providing a bargain for those not bound by school holiday times… so why not book a whole week?
