Why Dorset?

This predominantly rural county on the South coast of England is full of the quaint charms of both the seaside and the countryside. Home to the Jurassic Coast, this really is an exceptionally beautiful area. Book your next holiday rental in Dorset for a stunning country getaway.

About Dorset

Villages and towns make up most of this county. They each have their own quirks, so you're never short of that small-town magic. Whether it's long walks through lush, green country, or fossil-hunting on the world-famous beaches, there's a lot to capture your imagination in Dorset.

With some bigger town and one major city, there are still options to get into a busier, more hectic environment, but those seeking a calm, idyllic vacation will be best served here.

What to Do

Kids and dinosaur fanatics will get a kick out of fossil hunting. Whilst you can find things just about anywhere on the Jurassic Coast, the real hotspots are Lyme Regis and Charmouth, where you'd struggle to come away empty handed.

Walk part of the South West Coast path to see some of the unusual cliffs and hills, such as Golden Cap, or head more inland to see the chalky wonder of the Cerne Abbas Giant.

Top Dorset Travel Tips

Stay safe when you're fossil hunting, as the cliff falls that make this a great site are also what makes it a little more dangerous. Stay well away from the edges - and stick to that policy when you're at the top as well as down on the beach!

For a stunning, scenic spell in this charming, quirky rural county, book your next holiday rental in Dorset and see what you can discover.

Droop Farm Cottage, Dorset (H311)
Comfortable and homely cottage. Perfect for a family break away.

Lovely country location although our sat nav sent us round in circles a couple of times. A great place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a few days. We loved the cottage. It has everything you need and the food gift on arrival was much appreciated. The marmalade made by the owners was delicious. The cheese festival nearby was well worth a visit. Superb local suppliers with lots to do for all the family. Would definitely recommend the cottage and location and will stay there again. (Warning - Don't rely on your sat nav.) see more
