Short Breaks

We all need to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but sometimes it can be hard to fit in some ‘me time’ into our busy schedules. So, if you’re struggling to take a full week’s holiday, why not escape for a short break mid-week or over a weekend and discover the delights of Dorset?

With so much to see and do, plenty of festivals and events and some of the country’s most spectacular geological wows, Dorset is the perfect location for a short getaway and will be sure to make you return time and time again.

We have a great collection of holiday cottages in Dorset which accept short breaks, from cosy cottages for two with sea views, to large celebration houses for catching up with family and friends. Refresh, rejuvenate and enjoy some much deserved ‘me time’.

Take a look below and book your short break to Dorset today.
