Luxury Cottages In Dorset To Rent

Luxury Cottages in Dorset

Dorset may be less than two hours’ journey away from London, but its slower pace of life, natural beauty, and romantic charm are worlds apart. This stunning county is a great choice if you’re looking for a break that goes all out for rural relaxation, and there are lots of

luxury Dorset cottages

to choose from, including cosy little hideaways by the sea and larger properties close to towns like Bridport and Dorchester.

What makes for luxury cottages in Dorset? Basically, these are the properties that go the extra mile in delivering a top drawer holiday experience, ideal if you want to make your trip really special, perhaps it’s a honeymoon or you’re treating someone to a very special birthday treat.

Luxury Dorset cottages

will deliver on every level, offering modern conveniences, plenty of space and lots of little extras – not to mention amazing locations near to Dorset’s best beauty spots.

Things to do on your luxury Dorset cottage holiday

Everyone has their own idea of luxury, but whatever it is Dorset is bound to deliver. Some would say that luxury is all about location, beautiful surroundings, and rolling countryside. Located on the South West Coast, this beautiful county definitely ticks that box, with a great climate and stunning natural landscapes, including amazing beaches like those found at Weymouth and West Bay.

While Dorset’s beautiful strips of sand are great for a spot of relaxation, the coast is also great for some hiking or cycling, especially along the South West Coast Path. If luxury to you is less about nature and more about the charm of picturesque towns and villages, perhaps choose luxury accommodation close to Dorchester, a very pretty town with museums, historic buildings and plenty of tea rooms and shops.

You don’t need to jet around the world to find luxury, and the UK’s seaside towns have been dealing in high-class holidays for hundreds of years, so you know

Dorset luxury cottages

are bound to deliver and make your trip to this amazing corner of Britain something really special.
