Vacation rentals in Dorset

Holidays in picturesque Dorset

Dorset is one of England's most popular holiday destinations and has a correspondingly wide range of holiday accommodation to suit every budget, vacation rental or holiday home. Would you like to spend a beach holiday on the coast? Then places like Bournemouth, Weymouth or Lyme Regis are exactly the right choice. Culture lovers, on the other hand, will get their money's worth in places such as Shaftesbury on "Golden Hill", in the Dorchester administrative centre or in Sherborne with its world-famous Norman castle.

Holiday in Dorset

Travelers and Activities

Nature and culture united in southeast England

There is hardly any other region in England where the past centuries have been as dominant as in Dorchester. Together with the numerous natural attractions, the more than 1,000 kilometres of hiking and cycling trails offer a multitude of destinations worth seeing, which combine active holidays in nature with English cultural history. Besides the numerous castles like Corfe Castle and the Iron Age fortification Maiden Castle, you will also explore the so-called Jurassic Coast, where small and large fossil seekers can also enjoy one or two fascinating discoveries.

Things to know

Best travel time

Those who want to explore the region on foot or by bike will find excellent conditions between mid-May and mid-September. Active holidaymakers, who have no objection to an intermittent rain shower, can also use the numerous hours of sunshine in April for their activities. Bathers, on the other hand, get their money's worth between the end of June and the beginning of September with water temperatures around 17 degrees Celsius.

The county of Dorset is the English region with the largest population of over 65s (25.9%).

Top 3 travel tips

1. Dive into a world of steel

The Bovington Tank Museum is a tour of the museum that will make the hearts of technology enthusiasts beat faster. In the five halls, a journey through time awaits you through the history of armoured vehicles, from the first British prototype "Little Willie" to the legendary German "Tiger I" and the ultra-modern "Challenger 2".

2. Visit the Great Dorset Steam Fair

Another highlight for technology fans is the Great Dorset Steam Fair, which attracts over 200,000 visitors annually. Go back in time and marvel at the inventiveness of the early engineers.

3. Hiking on Brownsea Island

Nature lovers should definitely take a day trip by boat to Brownsea Island off Poole Harbour to explore the idyllic island. In the summer there are also regular performances of Shakespeare's works.
