Romantic Cottage holidays in Dorset and Somerset
Many couples are choosing to get away for a romantic cottage break in Dorset. The county has so much to offer those looking for a quiet break including the sweeping and majestic Jurassic coastline which is now a world heritage site. With miles of scenic coastal and country walks across rolling green hills there are few better locations for a break. Dorset is also blessed with many other attractions and activities: historical castles such as Lulworth, literary connections - Thomas Hardy used the county extensively in his novels - as well as world acclaimed visitor attractions such as Monkey World and the Abbotsbury Swannery. There is always something of interest to do or see. Our cottages4two are selected from our full portfolio of over 300 cottages and are limited to one or two bedroom properties that are suitable for couples.
Cottage of the Month
Last week Joy, Lynn and Hazel went to see our Cornwall properties to take some new pictures (watch this space!) on the way back they stopped off at Lyme Bay Winery near Lyme Regis to sample local tipples in time for Christmas. Choosing a good bottle of wine can pose similar challenges to choosing a holiday cottage. First you are attracted to the packaging, then the volume, or number of rooms, then the price tag; is it good value for money? And if all of the former meet the brief, then proof of the pudding, (as the old adage goes, or wine or in fact holiday cottage in our case), is in the tasting! A recent visit to Lyme Bays Winery by Dream Cottages staff, proved most enjoyable. There was a wonderful variety of locally produced wines, liqueurs, ciders and ales. And there was lots of tasting going on too. The raspberry wine, with its slimmer that usual elegant looking bottle and the chocolate orange liqueur, with equally stylish packaging, which Lynn and Hazel are enjoying sampling below, were particularly delicious and made it onto both their shopping lists! We really enjoyed our trip to Cornwall but Lyme Regis and West Dorset are seriously gorgeous too. We have several properties around Lyme Regis. The beautiful Cobb is famous for being the set of The French Lieutenants Woman and Mark Hix's Oyster Bar is very yummy. Read more >
