Why A Short Break in Dorset?
Dorset is just a two-hour drive from London and is easily accessible from the rest of the country. Therefore, making it ideal for a few days of relaxation and respite.

One of these weekend short breaks in Dorset will leave you feeling rested and rejuvenated.
The collection of Dorset cottages are perfectly located to enjoy the pretty seaside towns, golden sandy beaches, medieval castles, picturesque villages and enchanting harbours of Dorset.
Places for a Weekend Break in Dorset
Boasting a multitude of activities to suit all interests, you will be sure to have a fun-filled itinerary to keep the whole family entertained during your short break in Dorset. Take a scenic boat trip and experience the picturesque harbours and dramatic coastlines around Poole and Lyme Regis. Or, get on board and surf the waves at Kimmeridge Bay and Bournemouth Beach.
Why not jump aboard the Swanage Railway and marvel at sites such as Corfe Castle on the 12-mile return trip around Dorset and the beautiful Purbeck countryside. Just 30 minutes from the award-winning golden sands of Weymouth, the vibrant market town of Dorchester is well worth a visit, with museums and shops aplenty. If you want to get out and enjoy the fresh coastal air, then a walk along the South West Coast Path should be high on your priority list; marvel at the natural wonders of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.
