Winter Short Breaks in Dorset


Avoid the flock of tourists with a winter short break in Dorset this year. Explore the breath-taking countryside and coast in the crisp air with your loved ones.

Why a winter short break in Dorset?

Enjoy the great outdoors this winter with an adventure to Dorset. Admire the sea-breeze as you explore Old Harry Rocks, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the Golden Cap. Or if for an inland walk, you can see the seasons change at Wareham Forest and Upton Country Park.

After your hike, you can reward yourself in a traditional pub for a hearty meal. Later on, look forward to returning to your Dorset cottage, where you can spend quality time together. The next day, treat your family to a trip to Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens to see exotic plants.

Or if that's not for you, immerse yourself in the past at a historic attraction. Wander around the National Trust site of Kingston Lacey, which looks even more magical in winter! There is also Lulworth Castle, Castle combe and Highcliffe Castle.
