The Cobb, Lyme Regis, Dorset

Historic Hotels in Dorset

Heritage Rated Hotels and other Historic accommodation

There is so much variety in Dorset that it is difficult to know quite where to start! Children will love digging for fossils along the Jurassic Coast near Charmouth. Walking along the cliffs courtesy of the South West Coast National Trail is simply superb. In the East, Lulworth Cove is very popular, as are the striking remains of Corfe Castle. Visit Maiden Castle, near Dorchester, the largest Iron Age hill fort in the UK, or visit the cottage where Thomas Hardy lived. For more on what to see and do, see our Dorset Travel Guide.

Please select your desired location from the map or the menu below, or use the search form to the right. You may also wish to consult the listings for nearby historic hotels in Devon which borders on Dorset to the west, or Hampshire, to the east. For alternative accommodation, see our Dorset self catering guide.

Alternative accommodation: Bed and Breakfasts - Self Catering Cottages
