When planning holidays in Dorset for large groups of people, whether it’s a large family group, a group of friends, a stag or hen weekend, a school trip or a corporate team building activity holiday, you can find group accommodation in Dorset for all kinds of group holidays.
Dormitory accommodation can be found in hostels in Dorset, in both youth hostels provided by the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) and cheap backpackers hostels which are suitable for single travellers and groups. Staying in hostels can be very cheap, and whilst there are a few hostels in Bournemouth, there are not many in the rest of Dorset, so if you want group accommodation in Dorset you might be better looking for bed and breakfasts or guest houses that accept group bookings rather than hostel accommodation.
Bunkhouses and camping barns can be found in some rural areas of Dorset and offer great value budget group accommodation. Farmers and barn owners rent out the barns to school groups, climbers, walkers and divers as self catering accommodation for large groups. Camping in barns is like camping without a tent, although the barns often have toilets and showers and some have beds and cooking facilities.
If luxury group accommodation is more your style, you should consider large holiday cottages. Dorset has lots of holiday cottages and many of them are large enough to sleep at least six people, with some sleeping up to 15 people. For very large groups, you may be able to rent adjacent cottages with shared gardens. In Dorset you can find large holiday cottages with swimming pool, which are perfect if you are planning a pool party in a secluded location for lots of guests.
If your best friend is getting married and you are planning a stag party or hen weekend in Dorset, then Bournemouth is without doubt the best place to go. As well as a lively nightlife, Bournemouth has a beautiful beach and lots of pubs, bars and restaurants to keep the party entertained. Group accommodation close to Bournemouth town centre can be found for a reasonable price, in Bournemouth hotels and guesthouses that accept group bookings for stag weekends or hen nights.
If you are planning a hen or stag weekend in Bournemouth, make sure that the hotel knows that you are a hen or stag party, as the last thing you want is to stay in a family hotel and be in trouble for making noise. Some stag hotels and hen hotels will help arrange stag weekend activities in Bournemouth such as paint balling, go karting, surfing or booze cruise boat trips.
