Coastal Cottages In Dorset To Rent

There are many great reasons to visit Dorset, but top of the list has to be its beautiful coastline. You’ll find nearly 100 miles of coast and much of it is covered by the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you like sunbathing or surfing there will be a coastal cottage for you here.

There are many famous spots to choose from including Weymouth, Lyme Regis and West Bay. However, if you want to escape the crowds you’ll be able to find a nook of the coastline to call your own. From sandy stretches to pebble beaches, there is plenty of walking, fossil hunting and water spots to take advantage of. Why not give surfing or snorkelling a go? Rain or shine, Dorset’s coastal cottages offer a welcomed retreat.
