Beach Cottages

More of a peninsula than an actual island, the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset makes the ideal coastal location for family beach holidays or couples on romantic breaks seeking a more relaxed pace compared to some of the other busier seaside towns in the South West. With excellent sandy beaches like Swanage and Studland nearby and the chance siting of a Dinosaur footprint, Purbeck is one of those holiday destinations you must visit at least once in your lifetime. Ideally located with Poole Harbour to the north and the Jurassic Coast to the south, the area makes a great base for self-catering cottage holidays with plenty to see and do within a short drive including the popular seaside resorts of Bournemouth, Portland and Weymouth.


The coastline is part of a World Heritage Site in England and is not only favoured by walkers and water sports enthusiasts but also fossil hunters and nature lovers with plenty of coastal paths to explore. If you are holidaying as part of a big family or with all your mates check out the large group Isle of Purbeck cottages to rent which sleep 8 or more, ensuring enough room for everyone. With a range of holiday homes near the seafront enjoying sea views, our selection of Purbeck accommodation should suit all budgets, even those hoping to rent self-catering luxury cottages near the beach with a range of features that include Wi-Fi Internet access. Bookings are made direct with the owner or the property manager so you can be assured of the best rates and a high level of service from the moment you book your holiday rental.
