Dorset

Dorset is a picturesque county and its beauty is beyond dispute. In fact around 40% of Dorset has been officially listed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Filled with small villages, winding country lands and amazing coastline, it is no wonder that visitor numbers grow here each year.

Getting a cottage in the country in Dorset is a good idea if you want to spend plenty of time outdoors – after all, with this much beauty why would you want to stay inside? A must for any visitor is the Jurassic Coast. This part of the coastline has been providing fossil hunters with evidence of prehistoric life for decades and if you go hunting here you are almost guaranteed to find something. It has been given World Heritage Site status by UNESCO and it is worth going just for the views.

Coastal towns like Bournemouth and Weymouth are also great places to visit if you want interesting coastline. They offer traditional seaside attractions such as the beaches, fish and chip shops and amusement arcades, but you also have the option to take the heritage railway and visit Swanage too. The railway is a great favourite with people of all ages and can also take you to Corfe Castle, so you can start to explore the historical attractions of the county.

Country cottages in Dorset mean that you have easy access to a wide range of attractions throughout the county. Lyme Regis is popular with visitors and is known as the location for many films and TV shows, so some of it may be familiar to you already! A trip here means that you can visit the Marine Aquarium, which is a fairly small attraction but it is home to a variety of marine life and the kids will love it, especially as it can be visited no matter what the weather. Lyme Regis is also home to a great Dinosaur Museum that showcases some of the great fossils found over the years.

If museums are your thing then the museum in Bridport is a must. There is a wide variety of exhibits here that focus on local history – you can even learn about the local rope-making trade. Afterwards you can pick up a bargain or two in the town centre shops before heading back to your rural cottage to relax in front of a log fire.

Choosing countryside cottages in Dorset means you are close enough to visit other counties too such as Devon and Somerset, so why not make the most of it and book your rural cottage break today?
