We have some beautiful cottages right on the Dorset coast, from the seaside town of Swanage on the East, right through to Weymouth and the Isle of Portland and then further along to West Bay and Bridport.
Our Dorset coastal cottages are all completely unique and special in their own way.
Our wonderful Dorset holiday cottage portfolio includes a charming cottage just moments from the perfectly traditional Swanage harbour, an Edwardian beauty nestled on the Lulworth Cove, a bright modern apartment with a garden leading directly to Ringstead Bay, a tranquil beachside cottage in Weymouth, a picture postcard cottage on prime harbour side and a pretty pastel farm cottage on the cliffs at Burton Bradstock. We have these and many many more!
Dorset’s Jurassic coastline offers so much for family days out, groups of friends, or those looking for a dog friendly holiday. The South West Coast path runs along the coastline offering the most stunning walks, interspersed with old smugglers inns and beachside cafes, just perfect for cream tea stop offs.
For traditional seaside fun, Swanage and Weymouth most definitely fit the bill. Both have award winning golden sandy beaches and both have traditional old working harbours where you can watch the fishermen hauling in their catch or indeed join them on a fishing trip or perhaps a leisurely cruise along the Jurassic coast taking in the sights of the natural wonders, Old Harry’s Rocks, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.
Swanage is the perfect ‘getaway’ location. Entirely rural yet with long stretches of golden sandy beaches, it is completely idyllic. Weymouth offers more bustle and liveliness with great restaurants, beach activities including the famous traditional beach Punch & Judy show, a traditional esplanade and the best fish and chips on the planet!
Further along the coast, we have some cottages in quiet tranquil villages, alongside natural coves and glorious coastline, as well as some cliff side dwellings in West Bay and Bridport, perfect beach spots at West Bexington and newly built ‘Captain’s Suites’ on the rugged Isle of Portland.
Offering space to enjoy a perfect retreat for families, large groups of friends, or solo travellers, wishing to enjoy some peace amongst beautiful surroundings. Those who wish to sit on a big comfy armchair next to a big open fire with a good book and a cup of cocoa, with never ending views of green English countryside outside the windows.
To make a change from your day to day cooking, enjoy some of Dorset’s finest restaurants or take a trip to a local farmers market, of which there are plenty, and purchase some of the best Dorset ingredients to cook up a storm back at the cottage.
The Dorset coast is great for long walks along the South West Coastal path, fossil hunting on the beaches, picnicking alongside the famous landmarks as well as the more adrenaline fuelled water activities. Try your hand at climbing and bouldering on the cliff edges or enjoy a spot of fishing. Why not rise early and go for a run before the rest of your party wake up and then enjoy breakfast al fresco in the fresh sea air!
Many of our Dorset coastal cottages are dog friendly so do check before you book. No matter which part of the Dorset coast you choose for you well-earned break, you will not be disappointed!
