Historic retreats

Dorset has a wealth of history. From the ancient, such as Corfe Castle, to the ‘merely’ venerable – Thomas Hardy lived and wrote his most famous novels in the county – to the somewhat more modern: a strong connection to Enid Blyton, whose Famous Five books drew inspiration from many Dorset sites; and Clouds Hill, TE Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia’s) writing retreat. Dorset Hideaways’ small but growing portfolio will, as time progresses, include more and more holiday homes with a bit of history of their own.
