Whether you are visiting the county or want to explore a new area of Dorset, now is the time to start planning your Easter Break and find your ideal accommodation

Albury House

Situated in Charmouth on Dorset’s sensational Jurassic Coast, Albury House is a thatched 17th-century cottage bursting with character - think less shabby-chic and more ‘boutique’. Sleeping 10 guests in five bedrooms, this stylish seaside escape, with four bathrooms, is perfectly suited to get-togethers with family or friends and there’s also the possibility of accommodating an additional three guests.

There is a large living room, with log burner, a TV lounge with Blu-ray DVD and Xbox 360 and a wonderful snug/library area with luxurious armchairs for literary indulgence.

When it’s time to hit the sack, super comfy beds provide a restful nights sleep. And last, but by no means least, the Jurassic Coast - with its opportunity for rock pooling and fossil hunting - is within strolling distance, so you can walk off any Easter egg-induced calories.

Cost £2055 for a week 26th March – 16th April

Myrtle & Pear Tree Cottages

Looking to holiday with family or friends but want some independence? Then Myrtle and Pear Tree Cottages, located in the pretty West Dorset village of Netherbury, offer the ideal solution and also work individually for smaller family groups. Pear Tree, a 16th-century stone and thatch cottage with open fire, sleeps up to four in a king size and twin bedded room; next door Myrtle Cottage, a Grade II listed thatched cottage with fire, sleeps up to five in a king size, twin bedded and single room - allowing the option for an elderly relative or young friend to join your party. The village itself is pure Hardy and is within striking distance of the Jurassic Coast and minutes from the charming market town of Beaminster.

Easter at Pear Tree Cottage is £645 a week or £865 for a week at Myrtle Cottage. Four-legged friends are welcome too at an additional £20.
