On the English Channel's coast and just east of Devon, you'll find the small county of Dorset. The area is popular with visitors, with no shortage of cottage rentals. On the Dorset coast, you'll find a mixture of large Victorian family properties and modern apartment blocks with sea views, and inland, you'll find traditional chocolate-box style Dorset country cottages. All make the ideal base for exploring the county.
How to get to Dorset
Dorset is served by Bournemouth International Airport, but most visitors will probably find it more convenient to fly into other nearby airports that offer more international routes, such as Bristol or London. From there, you can reach Dorset vacation homes easily with public transport. However, it’s much more advisable to book a hire car and drive yourself, if only because Dorset is largely rural and you’ll need your own vehicle to see the majority of the attractions in the area.
