Reasons to buy a B&B in Dorset

Dorset has long been a favourite holiday destination and weekend retreat for thousands of holidaymakers from across the UK and further afield, making it ideal for B&B businesses.

Less than two hours from London Waterloo, the broad sandy beaches of Sandbanks and Bournemouth are a world away from the stresses of urban life, making Dorset a favourite for London families. The Jurassic Coast covers a significant fraction of Dorset’s coastline and is a World Heritage Site attracting geology enthusiasts from around the globe. Dorset is also a popular county for festivals and weddings, increasing the ‘short stay’ traffic to the area significantly in the summer months. 

More than 800 B&B businesses serve Dorset’s vibrant influx of tourists; to join this industry you need to ensure that the B&B you are purchasing has a good trading history and a solid reputation. You also need to make sure that the location you are considering will suit the kind of B&B you plan on running. For instance, if you want to buy a B&B that’s close to a wedding venue like Larmer Tree Gardens or Lulworth Castle, it’s likely that your guests will require a check-in time in the early afternoon, in order to meet ceremony times. If you plan on running your B&B on a “2 night minimum stay” arrangement this could work well in areas where accommodation is scarce, but demand is high, but it’s unlikely to prove successful in areas such as Bournemouth, where there is a high supply of alternative accommodation in the area. 

Do your research carefully, be realistic about the properties you’re looking at and someday soon you could be one of the hundreds of successful B&B owners earning their living in this beautiful part of the UK.
