Staycations are quickly becoming a favourite way to holiday, and what better place to explore than Dorset? Offering an abundance of activities, spectacular beaches, and some of the country’s most dramatic and beautiful scenery, there’s little more you could want from your holiday this year.
Dorset boasts almost 100 miles of stunning coastline dotted with beautiful beaches along the way. From traditional golden sands to the beautiful bays of Lyme Regis, the Dorset coastline is sure to capture your heart. Whether you want a fun filled, sand-castling building family holiday, or a relaxed dozing on the beach day, you’re sure to find the perfect spot to lay your towel.
From thousand-year-old castles to impressive Iron Age forts, Dorset has a wealth of history to offer. Why not take a trip to Highcliffe Castle and live like Mr Selfridge for the day in the beautiful Grade I listed fantasy castle, or delve deeper into the past and explore one of the largest hillforts in Europe at Maiden Castle.
A Taste of Dorset
Home to some of the finest food and drink our country has to offer, Dorset is definitely the place to be for home grown and freshly caught food. Local restaurants serve the freshest seafood and the farmers markets offer a taste of local home grown produce.
Why not pair your meals with some fabulous award winning ales produced in Dorset’s very own brewery’s and sip on beautiful wines from local vineyards.
After a busy day of activities (or relaxing on a beach!) you’ll want somewhere amazing to rest your head. There’s no better way to wind down than to spend your staycation in beautiful Dorset holiday cottages from Lyme Bay Holidays. Renting a cottage is the perfect way to see Dorset to the fullest, whilst having a beautiful home to yourself to settle into. From cosy cottages with a view of the sea, to a little luxury with your own private pool, there is something for everyone.
