Dorset

Romantic getaways don’t get much better than a trip to lovely Dorset in south-west England. Dorset may be easy to get to from much of the country, but it feels miles away from the daily rigours of real life. So, if you’re looking for somewhere to escape to with your loved one, then why not consider one of our romantic cottages. We have a wide variety of options in Devon, which surely won’t disappoint.

Head to lovely Bridport, for example, and you could be settling down in a lovingly renovated carpenter’s cottage. How about a red brick cottage just a few minutes from Dorchester, or indulging in a truly unique experience by staying in the grounds of Cerne Abbas in one of the restored cottages that sit alongside the famous abbey that dates back to AD 987? Whatever it is you’re looking for in a romantic getaway, you’re sure to find it here.

Dorset’s coastline is often what draws visitors to this intriguing county, and with much of it designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, who can blame them? If you and your partner are fans of walking, then you’ll be particularly enticed by Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, which hides millennia of history beneath your feet and in its chalky cliffs. Follow in the footsteps of the thousands of walkers before you who have also trod this path, and stare in wonder at the iconic Durdle Door, calming Lulworth Cove and the charming Chesil Beach.

Chesil Beach is so beautiful, it has inspired poets and authors, most famously Ian McEwan, who named a novel after this most English of beaches. If it’s literary inspiration you’re looking for, then how about heading to Lyme Regis, where Jane Austen set part of her last novel, Persuasion. This welcoming and quirky little town promises a wealth of attractions, from its romantic winding lanes to its picturesque harbour and popular beach.

For something that feels a little more cosmopolitan and yet is still small and charming, try Sherbourne on for size. This chic town is steeped in history, and thanks to its honey-coloured homes and buildings, looks wonderful. The famous boarding school named for the town can be found nearby, as can two castles, one of which is a decidedly romantic and atmospheric ruin, the other a significantly more intact manor house, with perfectly maintained gardens and a gorgeous lake, designed by Capability Brown.
