Celebrating the South West Coast

This year is all about celebrating the South West Coast.

It provides the backdrop to generations of family memories (bucket and spade holidays anyone?).

The coast gives us a connection to our island heritage and is home to a rich array of marine and coastal wildlife

We have some great places to stay along the Jurassic Coast, giving you the chance to explore at your leisure. There are charming thatched cottages at Seaton (sleeps 4) and on the Golden Cap Estate (sleeping 4 - 6), a former tennis pavilion with sea views overlooking Studland Bay or magnificent lavish houses such as Portland House (sleeps 12) with sea views over to Portland and Weymouth and Shute Barton House (sleeps 10) which offers the chance to stay in one of Devon's oldest manor houses.

Wellies or flip flops?
