October Half-Term

October is a wonderful time to visit Dorset for a family holiday. You can enjoy the countryside without the crowds and relax into the slow pace of life here. The weather is still warm and usually kind too, with sunshine, dry days and clear skies with the trees starting to embrace a vibrant golden glow.

There’s space in all the best pubs and restaurants and your four-legged best friend has access to all the beaches which were off limits in the summer. Dorset is a paradise of calm, open spaces - a true escape from it all and what better time to take the kids away than October Half Term?
