Holidaying In A Cottage In Dorset

Author : Cara Brownethorpe

Dorset is really a fantastic county to see and really worth a stay of as long as you can manage. It is beautiful and rural and offers much to see and do.

A great way to take advantage of the county is to rent a holiday cottage to use as your base. They will be self-catering, but with full kitchen amenities you can cook whatever you want. It is also more affordable than dining out every night, although there are lots of nice places to eat that are worth trying.

There is certainly a good number of cottages on the market to rent.

A scenic cottage is perfect. If you're staying when the weather conditions are good, use of a back garden is going to be ideal for relaxing in the garden and enjoying some sunshine or maybe a BBQ. Dorset is particularly well-known for thatched cottages, and hiring one of them for a week will enable you to stay somewhere traditional and beautiful.

Holiday cottages are great for groups of close friends to rent out or families. You've more privacy than a hotel and can easily come and go as you please.

Renting a holiday cottage in Dorset is easy. You can get advice from the Dorset Tourist Information offices or you can search on the internet for cottages in Dorset. Prices range upwards of about £300 for a week, depending on the property. For anyone able to splash out, there are some amazing deluxe cottages in the region.

From your base, you can experience all Dorset has to offer. The county is known for it's literary associations with Thomas Hardy, the Jurassic Coastline that goes on for miles and is outstanding for fossils, not to mention the towns and villages that all have their own appeal.

Popular locations to stay in are those near the coast in places such as Studland, Lyme Regis and Weymouth. In 2012, Weymouth and Portland will be especially hectic since they will be home to the Olympic Games sailing events. If you wish to book a property from 27th July to 12th August, do not hesitate! Also, the Paralympic Games will be held between 29th August and 9th September.

Away from the coast, properties near the ruins of Corfe Castle are also highly sought after. Choosing a location further away from the obvious tourist locations is advised if cost is an issue.

Be sure to check locations and prices to get the best holiday cottage for you, and then you can enjoy what Dorset has to offer.
