The county of Dorset on England’s south coast is a popular family holiday destination.  From fossil hunting on the beaches of The Jurassic Coast, exploring the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle, and marvelling at the ancient coastal landscape including the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, through to fun-packed family days out at Dorset Adventure Park or Weymouth Sealife Adventure Park, there really is something for everyone. 

Here’s the Parent Friendly Stays selection of child friendly cottages, lodges, holiday parks and family hotels in Dorset.
