There’s a reason why Dorset remains one of the most popular dog holidaying locations. From a barn conversion with all its original features to a modern cottage with a wood burner and Wi-Fi, you’ll find there are plenty of great vantage points.
Dorset sits on the southern coast of England and offers visitors yellow sand beaches, quaint seaside towns and pretty rolling countryside, perfect for your dog!
Whether you are trailing West Dorset or are looking for an area of outstanding natural beauty or two, it’s safe to say you won’t be able to take all of Dorset in on one trip.
There are medieval sights in Corfe Castle, and market towns for you and your pets to explore and search through. From Lyme Regis to Sturminster Newton, this is an exciting and varied holiday destination.
With our ideally placed pet friendly Dorset cottages, there’s a lot of attractions and dog friendly days out in Dorset
for dogs from lively seaside resorts to quiet villages on the edge of woodlands. The Jurassic Coastline is a unique area of geological interest, and it was given World Heritage status in 2001.
It’s well known for its fossils that turn up on the dog-friendly beach, and searching for them is great fun for the whole family. The inland town of Dorchester is a shopper’s paradise, and home to great restaurants, pet-friendly coffee shops and a choice of museums. It’s well worth a visit when touring Dorset from one of the many holiday properties on offer in the region.
Swanage, Weymouth, Lyme Regis and Poole are seaside resorts popular with families and couples looking for a cottage. With harbours, miniature golf, gift shops and ice-cream kiosks, Dorset has everything here for a perfect holiday in the UK. Thankfully, there are more than a few dog friendly cottages to help welcome you along with pets, too!
If you’ve never visited the West Bay of Dorset or are new to the whole seaside town scene, you really are in for a treat. Many of the best properties we list in this guide are walking distance from beaches and countryside vistas.
You’ll also find that you won’t have to search too long and broad for properties that are less than 5 miles from town and seaside scenes.
