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.

Colmer Farmhouse
Lovely

This is a lovely, quirky old cottage in a very pretty spot. We stayed for a night to break the journey back from Cornwall, it was my birthday and we had a beautiful family meal in the garden looking over the trees and valley. It’s very quiet, apart from horses and birdsong. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and took time to show our boys (3 and 6) the horses. Only downsides really are that you can’t wander around too much beyond the cottage and its garden with the kids. The double bed we slept in was super comfy, but the other one was on the saggy side (probably only a problem if you have back trouble). The area is beautiful too, high above the Dorset coast, but really quiet, even on a sunny Sunday morning. Great value - same cost as a Travelodge and 100 times nicer (if you don’t mind bringing your own sheets). Thanks.see more

Calm tranquil and friendly

We stayed here as we needed a base to stay whilst looking at houses in the area as we plan to move down here. The retreat has all the amenities you would need and gave me some ideas on how to make or own place more environment friendly when we move. Gabriela and Neil were very welcoming and helpful and pet friendly. I only wish that we could have spent more time actually relaxing at the property as we were so busy out and about the area.see more
