Five luxury self catering Dorset Holiday Cottages situated on 650 acres of farm land near Dorchester, Dorset; an area of outstanding natural beauty and abundant wildlife on the edge of the South Wessex Downs, South West England. Bookham Court holiday cottages provide the perfect location for couples or families/groups to enjoy both the Dorset countryside and Jurassic Coast. We are also an Eco and dog friendly holiday destination.
Dorchester & Dorset Countryside
Bookham Court holiday cottages enjoy panoramic views over Thomas Hardy’s Blackmore Vale. Watch our Highland cows, birds, deer and other wildlife from your patio or get away from it all with a roam around our lake or a walk along the Wessex Ridgeway/Hardy Trail footpath. Our holiday cottages are within easy access of both Dorchester and Sherborne and only 20 miles from the traditional seaside town of Weymouth. Guests are never too far from South Dorset’s wonderful sites, with country gardens, castles, museums and the Jurrasic coast and beach all close at hand. There are many excellent eating establishments within a few miles of Bookham Court farm cottages, with the Gaggle of Geese pub and the Old Chapel stores in Buckland Newton. For more information see our ‘Local Attractions & Wildlife’ pages.
Our new Eco, Low carbon holiday cottage boasts stunning views of the Dorset countryside
New kitchen in our Dorset holiday cottage
We love Great Coombe’s new kitchen. Dusky blue units, American Fridge freezer and a range cooker.
Bookham lake maintenance
Over the winter we have pruned the willow on the island, opening up the lake at Bookham Court holiday cottages. We used a boat to haul the trimmed willow from the island. This picture is before major pruning.
Reducing our Carbon Footprint
With the help of Low Carbon Dorset and the European Regional Development Fund we have installed LED lighting and numerous other carbon reducing measures in all our holiday cottages. As a result, we will be saving a large amount of CO2 from the Dorset air each year.
