About Self-Catering Holidays in Stratton

Country Cottages Online can help you find an ideal place to stay for your Dorset holiday. Choose from rural country cottages and even thatched country cottages for that real West Country feel.

When enjoying a self-catering holiday in this village, you may want to pop in to the traditionally styled pub, clad in flint-stone with a thatched roof for a sociable drink and to chat with members of the local community and find out about any local news. This pub serves real ales as well as a variety of tasty home cooked food. If you enjoy visiting historical sites, there are a couple to be found in the village.  The village is the site of the base of a medieval cross called Jackman’s Cross that was enhanced by a new stone cross and a bench to mark the millennium and the parish church of St. Marys dates from 15th century

Stratton is near to the river Frome and if fishing is your sport you can purchase day tickets from the Wrackleford Estate to dry fly fishing the river at one of eight beats.

Only three miles from Stratton is the town of Dorchester. You can stock up on your provisions here for your self-catering break and browse the many specialist shops in this delightful country town. There are some very interesting sites and attractions in Dorchester too. Go back in time to around the 4th century and visit the remains of a Roman house that was excavated in the 1930s and has been wonderfully preserved. See the descriptions of the rooms and evidence of underground heating and colourful mosaic floors. Relics discovered from the dig can be seen in the Dorset County Museum. There are also a number of specialised museums in Dorchester. The magnificent Keep museum houses military exhibitions and while ancient Egypt is recaptured in the Tutenkhamun Museum, historical Chinese soldiers are the subject of the Terracotta Warriors Museum. Kids and adults alike will be knocked out by the displays in the Teddy Bear Museum and the Dinosaur Museum. 

Dorchester is the gateway to the south coast and many resorts are easily accessible from your base in Stratton. The traditional seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Bournemouth buzz with excitement while the lesser populated beaches along the Jurassic coast have their own particular appeal. Wherever you decide to visit in this lovely part of the West Country you can be assured that you will find some stunning landscapes and breath taking seascapes on your cottage holiday.

Book a Stratton cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Dorset on holiday.
