Whether you want to meander down country lanes or venture off the beaten track, Dorset has a corner of countryside waiting for you. Walk through it, cycle across it or simply marvel at its beauty; whatever you choose we’re sure you’ll enjoy it. Don’t miss a stroll among the towering trees at Wareham Forest or try out one of the excellent pubs when you need a break. A Dorset country cottage holiday is a perfect chance to sit back and enjoy the view.
