Dorset Holiday Cottages in a stunning location

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.
