Dorset is officially one of the top places in the UK to spend a holiday after two of its resorts were named in a list of the top UK holiday destinations.

The top 4 finalists in the category for Best UK Resort were Weymouth, Great Yarmouth, Blackpool and Bournemouth, with Bournemouth winning the top accolade. Readers of Group Leisure Magazine voted for their favourite UK resorts and the result was that Dorset not only featured frequently in the list but also won the top spot.

Weymouth was recently given worldwide coverage when it hosted a few events of the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, which in itself shows the world-class standard of coastline to be found in Dorset.

The local councils are ecstatic that Dorset has proven itself to be a top destination for holidays, whether they are in Dorset Cottages or elsewhere, and highly recommend the stunning coastline, family friendly beaches, and range of cafes and restaurants that make both Weymouth and Bournemouth fantastic places to spend a holiday.
