Editor's Pick - Top Sites in Dorset

From the Jurassic Coast to beautiful countryside, Dorset has lots to offer...

Harrow Wood Farm Caravan Park is set in 80 acres of farm land on the edge of the New Forest just inside the New Forest National Park. It has 60 pitches with hardstanding and electric hook-up and some grass pitches for camping. This small family park is in the village of Bransgore from which you can explore the ancient and unspoilt New Forest and surrounding areas. The park is situated just five miles from Christchurch and two miles from the open forest. There is an on-site coarse fishing lake for your relaxation and a one mile circular farm walk to enjoy the animals and surroundings. You can explore pretty villages with country pubs, head to the famous Beaulieu Motor Museum or spend a day at the coast.

Set in a quiet valley yet within five miles of Weymouth’s sandy beach and harbour. It is just a short walk to the South West Coast Path and the Fleet Lagoon on Dorset’s Jurassic coastline. This award-winning park has super pitches in double width hardstanding, 16 amp hook-ups, water and drainage point as well as TV connection. The site is open all year with heated facilities including bathrooms and a wet room, as well as a warm water dog wash. There’s also the Red Barn bar and takeaway, open at weekends during mid-season and nightly in high season. There is a pub within half a mile and the bus stops at the pub making it easy to explore the attractive coastline.

Set among mature trees and rolling Dorset countryside, Wood Farm is a perfect caravan and camping park to get away from it all. The park is located in the Char Valley, less than a mile from Charmouth Beach and the Jurassic Coast. All about relaxation, there’s plenty of wide-open spaces and views over the Marshwood Vale. There are plenty of level, hardstanding pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes, all with electric, and some pitches are fully serviced. The tent area offers all-weather pitches with electrics in a sheltered part of Wood Farm. The indoor swimming pool, family fishing ponds, tennis court and play areas mean that there is something for everyone. And the on-park café can provide breakfast, light lunch or afternoon tea for all the family.

Three miles inland from Lyme Regis and close to Charmouth, this park is a perfect choice for people who enjoy beach walks with added interest. You are almost guaranteed to find fossils as you walk along the sand on this stretch of coast. In summer, gently shelving sands are a delight for families with rock pools to occupy children for hours. The park has level, hardstanding and grass pitches with 16 amp electricity. Within the park there is a small conservation wood and orchid meadow. Superb showers, comprehensive free site-wide high speed WiFi, and two dog walks complete the picture. In the countryside yet close to the seaside.
