Whatever the occasion we have an incredible Big Cottage for you
Thomas Hardy’s Wessex was riddled with ‘narrow, tortuous and miry ways’. Follow those same twisty lanes to rocky, rugged beaches. While geologists debate the origins of this coast, you’ll be foraging for fossils and rummaging in rock pools.
Catch a crab or two, sink oysters, then wander around ancient villages of babbling brooks and cobb cottages. In our large houses to rent, you’ll write your own chapter in history. Dive into pools, dine on the terrace and cosy up in front of roaring fires.
Boasting one of the best shorelines in Britain, with the Jurassic Coast and stunning scenery, Dorset is a holiday hot spot on the Southern coast of England.

Vast Iron Age forts, fairy-tale castles and sea-carved bays will transport you to a new world as you enter Dorset.
