Welcome to Dorset, an idyllic county of unspoilt coast and countryside along England's southern shores. And dotted about are some charming Dorset self-catering cottages.
Let's take you on a whirlwind tour! Dorset's interior is delightfully rural, with rolling countryside, chocolate-box villages and traditional market towns. Often described as 'Hardy country', whether you prefer to explore on foot, in the saddle or behind the wheel, sightseeing tends to be gentle and very rewarding. Along your travels, look out for farmers' markets for all kinds of goodies like organic blue cheeses and luxury ice-creams - just imagine the feast you can have in your Dorset self-catering cottage afterwards!
Perhaps Dorset's most striking feature though is its splendid 'Jurassic Coast', a natural World Heritage Site. Enjoy exhilarating walks along sweeping beaches like Studland Bay, a four-mile slice of paradise protected by the National Trust. This is a great place to pick up the South West Coast Path, a staggering 630-mile National Trail from Dorset to Minehead in north Devon. Do try out some smaller sections for amazing coastal views and wildlife watching.
Castles, gardens, sea life centres, tank museums…days out offer such variety. And remember, your self-catering cottage in Dorset will welcome you at the end of every day!
