Enjoying a fantastic position in the heart of Dorset, this beautiful 15th-century converted granary offers fantastic rural views and makes a wonderful base for a family exploring this idyllic area.

This historic market town is on the banks of the River Frome. For a long time, Dorchester was home to the novelist and poet Thomas Hardy who loved Dorchester so much, he used it as a fictional setting for his novel called The Mayor of Casterbridge. It’s busy and full town with shops, pubs, restaurants and all manner of attractions. There are lovely historic landmarks within driving distance and many museums to investigate.

Why visit Dorchester?

It’s a gorgeous part of Dorset and inspired much of Thomas Hardy’s work. As it’s along the southern coast of the UK it also has a slightly milder climate, perfect for those in need of a break. Take a picnic to Borough Gardens, discover the 4th-century Roman townhouse, or stop by one of its cinemas.

Things to do in Dorchester:

There are lots to keep you entertained, from seaside resorts to stylish restaurants. Importantly, it’s home to the Dorset County Museum. If you prefer more unique museum tours visit The Teddy Bear Museum, The Tutankhamun Exhibition or The Terracotta War Museum.

Why stay in a Dorchester cottage?

As it's the location of the Dorset County Museum, it’s an essential part of the region and can give you a great insight into this spectacular county. We have a fantastic selection of cottages in Dorchester. From dog-friendly cottages to cottages with hot tubs, we have the perfect self-catering accommodation for you.

Three must see things in Dorchester:

  • Dorchester is home to the Dorset County Museum, explore and learn about this fabulous county.
  • An extensive Iron Age hillfort, Maiden Castle, is a great day out and not much further is The Nine Stones prehistoric circle.
  • Visit the birthplace of the well-revered Victorian writer Thomas Hardy and walk in his footsteps.
