Search the Dorset cottages

Would you like a fabulous cottage holiday in Dorset? Dorset is much loved for cottage holidays because of its amazing countryside, stunning coastline, pretty villages and sandy and shingle beaches so do make it your number 1. choice for family breaks and romantic getaways.  Many love to spend time on the Jurassic coast where you may well come across some fossils and we don't mean the retired people who holiday here.  Rent a cottage in a village or one of the pretty market towns in Dorset such as Beaminster, Blandford, Bournemouth, Bridport, Dorchester, Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Wareham.  Weymouth beach is another attractive area for seaside cottages.  There are so many pretty parts of Dorset to visit and lots to see and do.
