Unusual Places to Stay in Dorset

Dorset is the perfect place for a holiday or a short break. The gentle rolling Dorset countryside offers breathtaking views and fantastic walks while Dorset’s uniquely rugged coastlines are lined with award-winning sandy beaches. There are lots of bustling market towns to visit as well as quaint sleepy villages with stunning chocolate box houses.

We have hundreds of different holiday homes to choose from, in all shapes and sizes. From a romantic shepherd’s hut for two to larger barn conversions which are perfect for groups of families and friends. Whether you fancy a rural stay on a working farm or prefer to be a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Poole Harbour, we can help find what you’re looking for. Many of our unique holiday properties come with added extras such as an outdoor fire pit or a wood-fired hot tub.


There are so many interesting places to visit during your trip to Dorset. Head over to the incredible Lulworth Cove on the Jurassic Coast, walk along the coast to reach the fascinating Anvil Point Lighthouse or spend the day soaking up the sun on Bournemouth Beach. If you’re a nature lover, Dorset is home to a number of nature reserves and country parks rich with wildlife amongst the woodlands and meadows.
