Short Break Holidays Dorset

Its proximity to central and south east England makes Dorset a popular destination for short break holidays, offering all the appeal of Devon or Cornwall but without the distance. With so many fabulous cottages and farmhouse B&Bs providing high quality accommodation in tranquil rural settings, you truly will be spoilt for choice with Farm Stay.


Whether you are looking for a weekend (Friday to Monday) or mid week (Monday to Friday) break, our farm-based cottages and B&Bs offer the perfect retreat in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. As a base for walking, horse-riding, cycling or just relaxing, you can be assured of a warm welcome - whatever the season.

Many of our cottages are available for short breaks all year round. This gives you the chance to appreciate the stunning Dorset scenery whatever the season, as Dorset's south coast climate often provides a warmer alternative to most inland regions. Spring, autumn and winter holiday prices are also considerably lower than in peak season periods. What could be more romantic than snuggling up in a cosy country cottage or a welcoming B&B after an invigorating walk across farmlands, along beaches or upon cliff tops?

Quite a few of our Farm Stay accommodations in Dorset will let you begin a short break on any day of the week, especially during the off peak season. Subject to availability, you can even book at the very last minute if the hustle and bustle of everyday life suddenly gets too much.
