Craving a relaxing staycation? Escape to the historic market town of Blandford Forum in the heart of lovely Dorset. As well as being inundated with family-friendly attractions — from fascinating National Trust sites to numerous Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty — you’ll find it’s just a short hop from the scenic Dorset Coast. Blandford Forum is a brilliant place for a West County adventure. The town sits on the meandering River Stour and is surrounded by glorious fields brimming with apple trees. You could also check out some of the town’s historic allures. The Royal Signals Museum in Blandford Camp is packed with fascinating memorabilia from WWII, while the annual Great Dorset Steam Fair in June is essential viewing for railway fanatics.

You’ll also be well-placed for trips to other destinations in and around Dorset during your Blandford Forum holiday. Why not venture to one of the region’s picturesque seaside towns like Lyme Regis? Or, you could dive deeper into the lush Dorset Downs to discover gems like the Victorian-era Larmer Tree Gardens or the grand Italian-inspired Kingston Lacy manor house.

Choose to stay in a charming old cottage in the bordering village of Blandford St Mary’s or discover our cosy holiday homes located right in Blandford Forum’s town centre. Here at Cottage Holidays, you’ll spot spacious picks perfect for the whole family, plus romantic boltholes featuring all kinds of luxe extras — think bubbling hot tubs and rolling countryside vistas.
