How to get to Dorset?

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.

What is the weather like in Dorset?

Weather in Dorset: What to expect

Fear not: you won’t just be holed up in your Dorset vacation rental during your stay! Dorset has among the highest number of days of sunshine anywhere in the UK, with around 1,700 hours per year. Winters are also warmer than the UK average, with less rainfall. That being said, this is still England and you should be ready to expect rain at any time. Pack an umbrella and waterproof clothing – you’ll be thankful you did as you make your way across the wet Dorset Downs.

What are the top sights in Dorset?

What to do in Dorset

If you only do one thing during your stay in Dorset vacation homes then make it the Jurassic Coast, which is 152 kilometers of absolutely stunning coastline. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was England’s first natural wonder to be given the title, and features beautiful beaches, rock formations and limestone cliffs. Take your family and spend the day walking in an area that has been 185 million years in the making.

Walking is a popular pastime in Dorset, with a wide range of trails available for all levels of fitness. Some 700 footpaths guide you over cliffs, down narrow country trails, through woods and over the county’s famous rolling hills. Set off from just about anywhere and you’ll be taken on an adventure through the very best environs that Dorset has to offer.

Dorset is a relaxing, beautiful place that attracts many nature lovers, but it’s not just the outdoors that brings people to the county. There are also unique museums and beautiful period homes to keep you entertained during your stay in Dorset vacation rentals.

Literary lovers can visit the birthplace of Thomas Hardy, as well as the cottage that he would later design and live in as an adult. Then there’s the Kingston Lacy House, an elegant estate from the mid 17th century that looks like it’s straight out of Downton Abbey. If horticulture is more your thing then visit Mapperton House and Gardens or Knoll Gardens, two of the best gardens in the country.

For something completely different, stop by the Tank Museum, a journey through 100 years of military history that includes interactive displays, exhibitions and, of course, tanks.

What are the best activities for families in Dorset?

Fun for the kids in Dorset

Dorset is a dream destination for children, who will love playing amid the natural scenery. There is also plenty of organised fun to be had for the whole family. At Monkey World, you can get up close and personal with more than 200 monkeys as you explore over 65 acres of woodland.

At Badger Watch Dorset, you can witness this beloved animal in its natural environment. Or, if you prefer your creatures to be a little bigger, older and, well, extinct, stop by the Dinosaur Museum, which houses fossils, skeletons and recreations of the largest beasts ever to roam the earth.

Younger children can have their imaginations stirred at Dorset Teddy Bear Museum, which contains an expansive collection of teddy bears – isn’t that a child’s dream?

Finally, engage with local life and really give your children something to smile about by spending an afternoon at Abbotsbury Children's Farm or Dorset Heavy Horse Farm and Rescue Center, two farms that allow visitors to handle, feed and learn about the animals that live on these farmlands.
