Thinking about exploring the World Heritage Jurassic Coast? This stunning part of England is an ideal location for a seaside holiday, and it just so happens there are plenty of self-catered cottages with disabled access around the area. Have you stayed at any of these listed cottages?

Tidmoor Cottages, Weymouth

Tidmoor Cottages include two wheelchair accessible cottages with a twin bedroom and wetroom on the ground floors. The cottages are located minutes from The Fleet Lagoon nature reserve and Chesil Beach on The Jurassic Coast. They’ve had many reviews on Euan’s Guide including from one family who loved their visit:

“After struggling to find somewhere suitable to accommodate our disabled son over the years, we finally found this little gem in Weymouth. An open plan living quarters with a walk-in shower room made our lives much easier. An immaculate conversion which has two levels to sleep four, was made even more impressive when we saw the view from the patio doors which opened out onto The Fleet.”

Bookham Court Holiday Cottages, Dorchester

Numerous countryside cottages are available to hire at Bookham Farm in Dorchester. These cottages were converted from redundant farm buildings in 2001, and a games room and fishing lake were added. The farm is an excellent place to spot wildlife, including owls, kestrels, small birds and small mammals. The cottages are listed on Euan’s Guide saying:

“Bookham Court holiday cottages are ideal for guests with limited mobility. Two cottages have downstairs bedrooms with wetrooms and access to a patio and games room.”

Dream Cottages, Weymouth

“If in doubt, we can arrange for you to speak with a member of staff who knows the property well and who can advise you on such things as disabled access and downstairs bathroom or wet room facilities, before you commit to booking a cottage.”
