We offer many single storey self-catering holiday cottages, as well as some cottages with ground floor bedrooms, that would perhaps suit those with limited mobility or walking difficulties and beloved elderly relatives, who may struggle with stairs. Properties with a downstairs bedroom also mean that you do not need to carry your heavy luggage up and down the stairs when you arrive and depart.

We have some fantastic ground floor apartments, single storey cottages and cosy thatched cottages with a downstairs bedroom, in all areas of wonderful Dorset. Whether you would like a modern ground floor apartment, perched right on one of Dorset’s prettiest harbours, a rustic cottage nestled deep in the countryside, or a beachside dwelling sat right on the Jurassic coast, we can most definitely cater to your needs!

We also offer some coastline chalets in our property repertoire. A single storey chalet is perfect for those who would find it easier without stairs and a chalet perfectly located on the Jurassic coastline affords the most wonderful views and extremely easy and pleasurable access to Dorset’s beautiful beaches. Enjoy al fresco suppers with sea views and then retire to your downstairs bedroom with ease.

Please do check our property descriptions, where we will state if a property has been awarded M2 status by the Mobility Impairment National Accessible Scheme, which means that they have been deemed suitable for a person with restricted walking ability and those who may need to use a wheelchair some of the time and can negotiate a maximum of three steps. You will also find a detailed description of access to a property within the downloadable PDF ‘Access Statements’, a link to which can also be found on the property descriptions.

If in doubt, the Dream Cottages team are always here to help! We can arrange for you to speak with a member of staff who knows the property well and who can advise you on such things as disabled access and downstairs bathroom or wet room facilities, before you commit to booking a cottage.
