High Rent For Dorset Holiday Homes

Holiday rental accommodation in Dorset for this summer's Olympic sailing events is now the second most expensive in the country.

The average cost per bedroom of a one-week holiday rental in July and August is £389, a survey by TripAdvisor showed.

Only London is more expensive.

Similar costs in Yorkshire are £217, with the Scottish Highlands £229 per room, North Wales - £237 - and Cumbria - £242 - also offering good value for money.

The survey also showed that holiday rental accommodation abroad in popular resorts in the next two months is far cheaper than in London and Dorset.

The cheapest in the survey is Croatia's Dalmatian Coast (£264 per room) followed by Andalucia in Spain (£274) and the Canary Islands which include Tenerife (£281).
