Stay a while - holiday cottages
We have some great places to stay in Dorset. From converted farmhouses and an old isolation hospital to an island retreat on Brownsea or a former tennis pavilion at Studland.
Stay a while - camping
Be inspired by a night under canvas. Why not get closer to nature and the outdoors at one of our campsites?
For something different our Golden Cap bunkhouse, once a post-war MOD radar station, sleeps eight and has wonderful views over Lyme Bay.
Stay a while - working holidays
If you are looking for interesting ways to make a difference, stay in great Dorset locations, and to meet new friends, one of our working holidays could be the answer.
