Dorset

A largely rural region of South West England, Dorset is comprised of a few towns and a larger number of small villages. The region offers visitors to England an array of outdoor activities amidst beautiful scenery and several well-known historic heritage sites. Adjacent to the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, Dorset is associated with the lure of private luxury cottage getaways. Luxury cottage rentals in Dorset are conveniently located and are the perfect point of departure for day trips to the surrounding areas.

The countryside of the area has a range of cultural, heritage and outdoor recreation sites. Visit the Swanage Steam Railway and board an authentic steam locomotive, and enjoy the ride from the National Trust’s Corfe Castle to the seaside resort of Swanage. The annual Great Dorset Steam Fair, which takes place from August to September, located near to the market town of Blandford Forum, features dozens of steam engines in 600 acres. Other popular sightseeing locations are Shaftesbury to the north of Dorset, Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island, which is owned and cared for by the National Trust. The UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Jurassic Coast and Stonehenge are within driving distance. The county is also a bus and train transportation hub for travellers to South West England.

There are no cities in Dorset. The county is ideal for those looking for a peaceful rural break away from the stresses of city life. Visitors can reach Dorset by car on the A303, the main route from London by way of Stonehenge. Train connections from Bristol and Bath to Dorchester (the county town), Weymouth and Sherborne are one-and-a-half hours, and you can travel on to London in two hours. Dorset can also be travelled to and from via sea – Brittany Ferries and Condor Ferries run ferries from Poole and Weymouth to Jersey, Guernsey and Cherbourg in France.

Visitors to Dorset can rent a luxury cottage for a long holiday or a short-term residency. Relax and unwind in a luxury cottage in Dorset at the end of a fun day of sightseeing. Our large range of luxury holiday rentals in Dorset include 5-star luxury cottages, luxury cottages with hot tubs and luxury cottages by the sea. We have over 1,000 luxury cottages to choose from across the UK, as well as Ireland, France and Italy.
