Things to do in Dorset on an Indulgent Stay

Dorset is the perfect place to enjoy scenic walks, beautiful beaches, and a little bit of luxury. Dorset is an incredibly relaxing place to be – the sound of the sea and the birds, the fresh air, the rolling hills – so if you’re seeking to unwind for a long weekend and treat yourself, then you’re in the right place. Whilst you can enjoy your luxury holiday cottage in Bridport, there’s many other indulgent things to pass the time with too…


Artisan Gin Cruise with Dorset Cruises

Are you, like many of us, a gin lover? Dorset Cruises have put together an Artisan Gin Tasting Cruise on board their vintage motor yacht for you to sample a choice of 20 artisan gins and complimenting canapés. There is also an impressive cocktail menu and a guest distiller each week that will provide mini master classes on how to pair their gin with different tonics and garnishes. The Artisan Gin Cruise has two different types of tickets: VIP and standard, so you can experience a little slice of luxury or really go all out.


Vineyard Tours at Furleigh Estate Vineyard

The Furleigh Estate is 85 acres of vineyard and grazing land and is a home to copious country wildlife. While the views are gorgeous, it’s the vineyard itself that allows you to have a taste of indulgence. Their vineyard tours take you around the growing vines before returning to the purpose-built winery for a tasting session of a selection of their still and sparkling wine. The Grand Tours even involve a tasting of local cheese and charcuterie whilst you sample the wine. A perfect way to spend the day, you can then open your own bottle when you return to your Bridport holiday hire cottage.


Luna Cinema at Lulworth Castle

If you’re looking for something a little different, then you’ll love the Luna Cinema at Lulworth Castle. The beautiful 17th century castle plays host to a huge screen that shows some of the latest released films. The screen is set up against the castle itself, with a rolling lawn perfectly placed for you to bring your camping chairs, blankets, and snacks so you can cosy up under the night’s sky. The Luna Bar will also be onsite selling alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as hot drinks. A really romantic and atmospheric way to spend the evening at some of Dorset’s most iconic scenery, you can retire to your luxury holiday cottage in Bridport after a night under the stars.


Delicious Wining and Dining

Fine dining in Dorset is second to none because of the freshly caught seafood and gorgeous traditional pubs with a modern twist. The Anchor Inn in Seatown, Dorset, is a pub perched right next to the sea (seriously, it’s a stone’s throw from the pebbles) and boasts an extensive drinks list including cocktails and trussed-up pub grub. Don’t expect the usual pub food here, but one step beyond that and then one step more! Hix Oyster and Fish House is another favourite, because they cook with locally sourced seafood and the menu is absolutely divine with a choice of fresh cocktails and sumptuous wines. When you’re not cooking at your luxury holiday cottage for hire, sample some of the local luxuries.
