Our large cottages can accommodate groups of up to 13 people, with some also allowing pets. Whether you are a large family, or group of friends we can help you to arrange your ideal get together in the wonderful setting of Dorset.
Gather up your family or come together with friends to celebrate a special occasion, or simply to spend some much needed time together. Our large holiday cottages are luxuriously spacious, so there is no need to get under each other’s feet.
Some of our larger properties have added extras, like snugs, games rooms, pool houses and beautiful gardens for summer soirees. These properties include a large elegant Georgian townhouse, a 5 storey harbour side property overlooking Weymouth Harbour, a grand lodge with an indoor pool and a large old stone cottage in a charming picture book village.
Getting large groups of people together is so special and our large holiday cottages are perfect for making great memories. Venture out and explore Dorset and the Jurassic coast, or simply eat, chat and relax together around a big table, which all of our larger cottages are equipped with. It’s often difficult to fit big families and large groups of friends around a dining table at home, but our large properties take the stress out of getting together. Some properties have panoramic sea views, while others look out to never ending rolling green hills; the perfect backdrop for time spent with great friends and loved ones.
For those wishing to take a break from cooking, why not hire a caterer? Even if it’s just for sociable champagne and canapes before you head out for the evening, having a caterer swing by with the finest Dorset delicacies is a great way to get into the relaxing holiday spirit.
For those wishing to have some fun outside the cottage, there are some fantastic activities to get involved with in Dorset. Whether you want to go for long rambling walks in the country or along the South West Coastal Path stopping off at old thatched pubs along the way, or perhaps enjoy the turquoise seas by kayaking, paddle boarding, or bundling everybody together for a fishing trip on one of the boats from Weymouth, Portland, or West Bay harbour.
Dorset has some fantastic festivals and carnivals in its packed seasonal calendar. The Wessex Folk Festival in Weymouth is a must if you are staying with a large group in June. Every year the streets fill with Morris dancers, live music, cold beer and sunshine. There are two stages; one harbourside in Weymouth and the other on Hope Square right outside our office. The pubs all get involved too with live music and workshops and there is general merriment all around! Definitely not to be missed.
For families, the draw of Dorset’s award winning beaches is perfect enough. Picnicking, fossil hunting, swimming and sandcastle building will keep the children entertained for hours, all to the backdrop of the beautiful wonders of Dorset, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.
