Get rustic on a cabin holiday in Dorset without sacrificing any of the luxuries that make a holiday feel special. Time spent in nature is good for the soul (and the stress levels) and swanky perks like a hot tub, sweeping veranda and pizza oven make it positively blissful. When you can drag yourselves away from your slice of glamping heaven, Dorset is bursting with beautiful scenery and outdoor adventures from fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast to hiking the South West Coast Path.
Our cabins in Dorset couldn’t be more different from each other, so whatever tops your wish list, you’re likely to find it in our carefully curated collection. We’ve got a sleek, Scandi lakeside pad, a stunning beach house right on the sand, a ‘tiny’ but swish off-grid barn, and many others. Whichever cabin in Dorset you choose, you can relax in the knowledge that we’ve personally inspected it to make sure it ticks all the boxes for an unforgettable break.
The rules have changed, and your mismatched earthenware and eclectic glass collection (that’s definitely not liberated from your favourite bars) will do just fine. But how do you go about planning a dinner party in the wild? Let’s take a look.

Why are cabins so special?
Cabins are one part adventure and one part relaxation, all set against a backdrop of breathtaking natural scenery. A typical day might begin with a soak in the hot tub in the crisp morning air, followed by coffee on the deck gazing out at rolling hills. Then a long hike through woodland trails, before returning to flop back into that tub and hope that your other half cracks open the fizz. Need we say more?

Is Dorset worth visiting?
Dorset’s scenery is world-famous, and you can’t travel far without stumbling across an iconic landmark like Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle or the ancient cobbles of steep Gold Hill in Shaftesbury. Not to mention Durdle Door, Old Harry Rocks and Chesil Beach. Fortunately, Dorset is also awash with pretty, bunting-clad towns like Bridport and Lyme Regis, where you can stop for delicious refreshments and a leisurely browse of the independent shops and bustling markets.
