Family Friendly Holidays in Dorset

Self catering accommodation gives your family the space, privacy and freedom to plan the day as you wish. As parents we know how important family holidays are and here at Doles Ash Farm Holiday cottages we try to make your holiday as relaxing and as enjoyable as possible.

We offer a safe environment for children to run wild and explore, build dens and make friends. Whatever the weather there is something to do. The playfield has mini ride ons, a large climbing frame, mud kitchen and playhouse. We have a games room with pool table, table tennis, football table, a selection of toys, play kitchen, board games, jigsaws, books and DVD’s. Experience your baby’s first swim in relaxing surroundings (don’t forget swim nappies).Our Indoor pool is heated to a toasty 30 degrees and we have seen many children become confident swimmers by the end of their holiday!

Our free range chickens love being fed treats or why not take the pygmy goats for a walk around the woodland!
