Welcome to Doles Ash Farm – Dorset self-catering holiday cottages

Dorset self- catering cottages with indoor pool  – the perfect location for a stress-free holiday!

Our Dorset Holiday Cottages are located in the heart of Thomas Hardy’s Dorset. We offer a relaxing, peaceful break surrounded by beautiful open countryside. No longer a working farm, our family- run award winning complex contains 7 four star cottages, all of which have been converted from former farm buildings and are well equipped with everything you need. Our holiday cottages sleep from 2 – 11 people and are clustered around a grass courtyard, along with our 18th-century house, indoor heated swimming pool, tennis court, play field and games room. In the animal fields we have chickens, pygmy goats, sheep and alpacas who all love feeding and a friendly pat! Doles Ash offers something for everyone and something for all generations to enjoy together. Whether you are looking for a quiet country retreat to relax and rejuvenate or the freedom for your children to explore our range of onsite facilities

PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR OUR COVID POLICY AS SOME OF OUR SERVICES HAVE HAD TO CHANGE. OUR INDOOR POOL IS OPEN FOR PRIVATE BOOKABLE SWIMS!

Short breaks available all year round excluding school holidays. Free WIFI available in all cottages.

Close to the towns of Dorchester, Weymouth, Bridport and Sherborne, our award winning cottages are located in a great position to explore and experience what Dorset can offer. Our cottages are perfect for a relaxing holiday with family and friends or a short romantic break. The countryside surrounding the farm is glorious, it offers a network of  public footpaths and bridleways direct from your door and views across open fields. This landscape was made famous by Thomas Hardy and Doles Ash features in his “Tess of the D’urbervilles” as Flint Comb Ash, bring your walking boots as there are many local walks where you can walk in his footsteps. On clear nights watch the sky come alive with millions of stars and the only “noise” you will hear are the owls hooting.

There is so much to do in Dorset, from its Jurassic beaches like Charmouth where you can collect fossils and the World Heritage coastline of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door to miles of pretty walks, cycle paths, cosy pubs and unspoilt rural villages. Please visit our page THE AREA for places to visit and ideas for days out.

The nearest pubs that we can recommend are The Thimble Inn which is a lovely country pub serving delicious food and The Gaggle of Geese with its large outdoor areas often with live music 

We look forward to welcoming you to our Dorset Holiday Cottages! Book online here for best ratess

What Makes Us Special?

Had a great stay with 4 friends in groom cottage. The cottage was pristine and the staff were super friendly. Beds were really comfy. Pool was clean and really nice to go swimming in. The heating kept the cottage nice and warm, which was perfect for a cold night. From what I understand they even let you walk the goats. Would definitely come here again.

To keep an extended family of 15 happy for a week was achieved by this charming farm with such lovely accommodation ,our 4 cottages were perfect and all of us with ages ranging from 2 to 80 enjoyed ourselves. The tennis court and pool were in constant use. Other highlights were the trips to Lulworth Cove and Chesil beach, also 5 of us were runners up in the Thimble Pub Quiz evening.
