Holiday haven, Dorset caters to all accommodation needs – from clifftop campsites to boutique boltholes. The coast boasts the biggest range, with the sheer number of options in big resorts like Bournemouth and Weymouth keeping prices low.

Smaller coastal bases such as Lyme Regis and Lulworth Cove still provide plenty of choice, as do Dorchester, Sherborne and Shaftesbury, inland.
