Coastal Cottages Dorset

Just show me Coastal Dorset Cottages

Please find below a selection of holiday cottages along the Dorset coastline. All these self catering cottages are within one mile of the coast.

Book a coastal cottage in Dorset and escape to the magnificent Jurassic Coast, a natural World Heritage Site stretching for almost 100 miles.

Imagine uncovering 200 million years of history! This sweeping shoreline is world-famous for fossils and children will love hunting them out on Dorset's dazzling beaches. More traditional entertainment, meanwhile, includes donkey rides, pedaloes, crabbing and all kinds of water sports.

Such outstanding scenery attracts many walkers, keen to explore the South West Coast Path - and even if you're by no means an enthusiast, this coastal path is too good to miss and promises unforgettable views. Or soak up the scenery on a gentle cruise along the coast.

Places to visit on Dorset's stunning heritage coast

During your coastal cottage holiday in Dorset, don't miss the charming town of Lyme Regis, with its intricate maze of streets winding down to historic Cobb Harbour. Also Weymouth, an elegant family resort featuring the Sea Life Centre and a wonderful three-mile prom linking to the Lodmoor Country Park. Or head for Bournemouth, boasting seven miles of award-winning beaches and world-class entertainment including Europe's first artificial surf reef at Boscombe.

Another reason to book a coastal cottage in Dorset is the weather - we can't make any promises, but this region does tend to have a generous share of sunshine. Need we say more?
