A visit to Dorset will undoubtedly be one to remember. The beautiful county in the South West of England has some of the best beaches in the UK; awe-inspiring activities and attractions to enjoy and a history that is unrivalled by many.
Things to do in Dorset:
We have a range of cottages that are close to the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast for bucket and spade holidays and fossil hunting. There are plenty of beaches to explore along the coastline, while the iconic red and white stripes of Portland Bill Lighthouse on the Isle of Portland and wonderful ancient landmarks such as Corfe Castle and Brownsea Island are all well worth a visit.
