If you're looking to visit one of the finest stretches of coastlines in England, why not consider one of our holiday cottages to rent by the sea in Dorset. The coastline is ever changing, taking in dramatic cliff-top walks, safe beaches and also seaside resorts with charming Dorset coastal cottages.
Starting in the east with the natural harbour of Christchurch and the fascinating Mudeford Spit the coast passes through Bournemouth, one of the country's most popular resorts to Poole and one of the largest natural harbours in the world where Brownsea Island's famous for its red squirrel sanctuary and as the birthplace of the Scouting movement. Onto Purbeck Island - in reality a peninsula guarded by the spectacular ruins of Corfe Castle - the fabulous beaches of Studland Bay looking over to Old Harry's Rock and the resort of Swanage.
If you are staying at one of our Dorset cottages by the sea a visit to Lulworth Cove is a must. It is almost encircled by tall cliffs and a short cliff-top walk to Durdle Door, a natural chalk arch. Weymouth is a mix of seaside resort and fishing port, beyond which lies the remarkable Chesil Bank, a unique shingle beach that stretches 15 miles from Weymouth to Bridport. The pretty town of Lyme Regis is known as the Pearl of Dorset probably best known for The Cobb, a long harbour wall full of character and history. This stretch of the coast is so rich in fossils that it has become known as the Jurassic Coast, with beaches offering excellent fossil-hunting opportunities whilst holidaying in one of our Dorset cottages by the sea.
