Own a Holiday Home in Dorset

Miles of sandy beaches, tons of local attractions and endless places to explore. With a holiday home in Dorset, every day is different.

Dorset

With a whole host of places waiting to be explored, a holiday home lets you tick off the places you want to go in Dorset, and at your own pace.

The nearby town of Christchurch is the perfect place for pottering around on pleasant afternoons. Or, if you want to shop, or relax on the beach, Bournemouth is a great day out. By night, you can enjoy cocktails with a great view of the coast at beachside bars.

If you can tear the kids away from the park, you’ll find lots to do in the local area. Whether it’s the annual food festival or summer fireworks, the jam-packed calendar of events in Dorset guarantees a great time!

Take a look at the Hoburne holiday homes for sale in Dorset. Or visit us on an open day to discover our new luxury development.
