Santa & Elves visiting guests at Westport Cottage

Copywright Andy Lyon

Lots of our holiday cottages have open fires and are decorated for the festive period.  Dorset and the Isle of Purbeck are ideal for a Christmas break.  You can take a long windswept walk along Studland beach (with the dog).  Visit the Jurassic coast, which takes on a rugged, golden hue this time of year.  Christmas is a magical time for families to get together, what better way to spend quality time with your family.

This beautiful photo of Corfe Castle, taken by a local photographer, shows that Dorset is well worth a visit in Winter.  This shot is taken from the Purbeck Hills, which overlook the ruins of the castle, which is owned by the National Trust.  A network of footpaths run over the hills, which are a good choice in Winter, being chalk land it doesn’t get too wet.
