Holidays in Dorset

Holidays in Dorset are the perfect way to unwind, whether it is for your summer holiday, a short break, romantic getaway with your loved one or last minute weekend break.

Much of the countryside has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so what better place to stay for your holidays in Dorset? We have farm holidays and country breaks in grand country manor houses, barns full of character, cosy country cottages, and proper farmhouse bed and breakfasts! Some are on working farms and all are surrounded by beautiful countryside. Wherever you choose, you’ll be sure to get a warm welcome and have a fantastic base for your holidays in Dorset.

It is really easy to get to Dorset, and if you are travelling from London, you could be starting your holiday paddling off Weymouth beach in under 3 hours. This is a county steeped in history, where you’ll discover Roman temples, iron age forts, medieval castles and unique landmarks such as the Cerne Giant.

Dorset is full of natural wonders, from the shell-shaped Lulworth Cove and towering archway of Durdle Door, to Old Harry Rocks and the incredible golden cliffs at West Bay. Stroll along the sandy and pebble beaches, or explore the unspoilt landscapes of the nature reserves.

For a bit of nostalgia, head to Swanage for a steam train ride or to Shaftesbury to walk the hill made famous by the Hovis advert. With country parks, historic houses and gardens, a model village and picture-postcard lifesize ones too, there’s lots to discover during your holidays in Dorset. And not forgetting rock pooling and fossil-hunting on the famous Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Learn to sail, or try out one of the many other watersports available.

Come and discover our great range of farm holidays and country breaks, from cosy cottages and farmhouse bed and breakfasts to your own manor house for your holidays in Dorset.
