Self Catering Holiday Cottages situated near Weymouth and the West Dorset Coast.

Welcome to Character Farm Cottages, seven self catering holiday cottages sitting on our beautiful working dairy and beef farm situated on the Dorset coast near the towns of Weymouth and Dorchester. We run the holiday cottages as a family business and pride ourselves on providing that extra personal touch and excellent hospitality. The holiday cottages are near some of the main attractions in Dorset and only a mile away from the Chesil Beach and the Fleet, part of the Jurassic World Heritage Site, which can be seen from most of the farm. Our English country cottages are available throughout the year for weekly lets and short breaks October through until March.
The holiday cottages vary in size from small and cosy one bedroom homes, ideal for a secluded romantic break to the largest with five bedrooms which can sleep nine, perfect for large families or a group get-together. All four star rated by the English Tourist Board, the farm holiday cottages are well maintained and equipped to a high standard. We have been in the self catering holiday business for over 30 years with many of our guests returning year after year, so you can book with complete confidence. There is plenty to do in the local area. You are spoilt for walks on the farm and along the coast with the South West Coastal Footpath running through the farm. We are only 5 miles to the west of the seaside town of Weymouth, nicely secluded on the coast just a stone’s throw from the Fleet. Abbotsbury is a few miles to the west and famous for its historic Swannery and unique sub-tropical gardens. On site we have the Old Stable complete with table tennis, table football, a WiFi hotspot, laundry facilities and a good selection of books to borrow.
