A short break in Dorset is a fantastic choice for your next UK holiday. Here at Sykes Cottages we have a great selection of holiday cottages to satisfy a variety of tastes and regardless to whether you're looking for a mini break or a long weekend getaway, we can help find your perfect holiday in Dorset.

The charming county of Dorset is the perfect combination of coastal and rural landscapes. Home of the stunning Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site stretching 95 miles towards East Devon, where you will find the unmistakable limestone arch of Durdle Door, as well as rugged coastline, fascinating footpaths to venture down and stunning coastal views along the dramatic and distinguished South West Coastal Path.

Heading inland, the landscape becomes much more rural, sprinkled with thatched villages, market towns and ancient sites to explore and appreciate. Walk the cobbled street of Shaftesbury's Gold Hill, made famous by the 1973 award-winning Hovis advert, trace the steps of iconic authors Austen, Blyton and Hardy if you are a literary fan and browse the picturesque seaside town of Lyme Regis or if you're looking to relax on an idyllic beach, then head over to Weymouth. One thing is certain, on a mini break in Dorset; you will never be short of activities to pursue.
