Coastal Cottages in Dorset

The Dorset Coastline is one where scenery, history, fun and plenty of fresh air mingle together to create a well loved destination all year round.

Attracting scientists, families and couples alike, this magical coastline is a continuous geological wonder and a walk through time. Spanning from the Triassic period to the modern day, the millenias of Dorset sit together in perfect harmony and lying with the UK’s only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site are peaceful and picturesque clusters of seaside towns and villages, striking rock formations, family beaches and romantic coves.

Who visits the Dorset coast?

The Dorset coast attracts visitors looking for seaside air, pebble coves or sandy beaches. Fossil hunters, wagging tails and sunbathers can find a piece of perfection along this Jurassic and sunny coast. It’s an ideal spot for family and friends looking to gather or couples wanting a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city lives.  

Locations along the Jurassic Coast

95 miles of Jurassic coastline stretches from Exmouth in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks in Studland Bay. Along its length lie stunning seaside towns such as Swanage and pretty villages like Corfe Castle, Worth Matravers and fashionable Kimmeridge dotting the landscape of Purbeck.  Fossil hunt until your heart’s content at Chapman’s Pool, fall in love at Lulworth Cove, enjoy sunny walks along the promenade in Swanage and gaze across the bay at Durdle Door. Take yourself back to halcyon days by enjoying fish and chips, ice cream and walks along a shingle shore. A cottage holiday on the Dorset coast will fill you with experiences, sights and smells which will last a lifetime.
