Short Breaks Information

Short breaks in the Isle of Purbeck

With so much on offer, the Isle of Purbeck is the perfect choice for a short break… just a few days here will leave you refreshed, relaxed and ready to tell friends and family what a great time you have had!

Winter is a fabulous time to visit. Imagine long coastal walks, log fires in cosy pubs and great shopping and I am sure you’ll agree there’s no better place to be.

Spring brings its own joys. You’ll enjoy longer evenings with those big skies and see the countryside awakening after its winter slumber.

And autumn here truly is a season of mist and mellow fruitfulness.

We offer short breaks of two-six nights all year round in almost all of our beautiful cottages. Whatever the time of year, and no matter how long you can spend here, we’re sure to have something to suit. CLICK HERE to view our short breaks.

Booking your short break

Depending on what time of year you want a break away, short breaks can be booked with varying lead times up to your arrival dates. You can book a short break at any time during low season (after October Half Term through to the week before May Half Term excluding Easter). At busier times of the year, short breaks can be booked between 8 weeks (Christmas and New Year), 4 weeks (mid-season) or two weeks (for peak season) before your arrival date.

It’s easiest just to enter the dates you want to go away in the Quick Search area of our Home Page and it will list all the short breaks available for that time, with their prices.

How Much Do They Cost?

Short breaks can cost from as little as 50% of the full week price depending on the property.  Some of our properties offer Great Value Short Breaks where the prices are set at a lower proportion of the full week price than other properties. In addition, some of our properties do not offer short breaks at all and can only be booked for full weeks.

How Do I Book?

Short breaks can be booked online using the calendar on each individual property webpage, or you can search via the quick search facility on the homepage of our website. This will list all the short breaks available for the dates you specify. Alternatively, if you contact us, our friendly reservations team will do their best to find the ideal short break for you. Give us a call on 01929 422776 to discuss where you’d like to stay and how many nights you want, and we’ll do the rest. Or send us an email and we’ll get back to you very shortly bookings@dorsetcottages.com
