Dorset Holiday Rentals

Situated in the south of England, Dorset benefits from a beautifully temperate climate. It is perfect for those who love to be within reach of the coast as well as the countryside. Why not consider renting a self-catering beach house in Lyme Regis? You and your family will have more room to move than in a restricted hotel room. What's more, you will have the freedom to cook as and when you please. If you prefer to see rolling green hills outside your window, a set of rooms in a farmhouse would be ideal for you.

Dorset attractions

The county of Dorset is perhaps best known for its Jurassic Coastline, which is a World Heritage Site. Lyme Regis, with its thirteenth-century harbour, the Cobb, is a popular and picturesque setting. Inland, there is a wealth of other attractions; the town of Sherborne has an Abbey Church and two castles, one dating from the eleventh century and the other from the sixteenth. Bridport nestles amongst the West Dorset hills and is an ideal centre from which to go walking, horse riding or cycling. History lovers will not want to miss the Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum in Dorchester. Interested in architecture? Why not visit the town of Beaminster with its two hundred listed buildings.

Dorset holiday rentals for families

There are plenty of attractions throughout Dorset for families with young children. Dorchester has museums for those interested in dinosaurs or teddy bears, while at Lulworth Castle and Park there is an animal farm as well as an adventure playground. In Wareham you can see the largest collection of chimpanzees outside of Africa at Monkey World – Ape Rescue Centre; there is an adventure play park there too. At Abbotsbury Swannery, you might be lucky enough to see cygnets hatching. Putlake Adventure Farm in Swanage will delight with its farm animals, and it has an indoor play centre for rainy days.

Budget holiday rentals in Dorset

Renting self-catering accommodation in Dorset is an option that is bound to save you money on hotels. Whether it's an apartment by the beach or a holiday cottage in the heart of the countryside that you are looking for, we have a wide range of low-cost accommodation to offer you. Consider booking your holiday in either June or September to bring the cost down even further. Our genuine customer reviews will help you to make the right choice, and you can be assured of getting the best value for your holiday when you book through us.
