Dorset is a popular area for holiday park breaks. Firstly it has a stunning coastline that includes the Jurassic coast, a world heritage site that is so named as it has a large number of fossils found within the cliffs. At the East of the Jurassic Coast, near Portland and Weymouth is Chesil beach, an 18 mile stretch of raised shingle beach that is a natural wonder to behold. Also on the coast are some lovely sandy beaches that include the popular seaside resorts of Bournemouth and Weymouth amonsgt others.
Weymouth, tends to be the area where most of the holiday parks we advertise are located. Technically it is a twin town of Weymouth, the port side of the town and Melcombe Regis, where most of the hotels and shops are found. The Regis was added to Melcombe during the reign of King George III as he was a frequent visitor and there is a statue of him still standing on the seafront.
Dorset also has some beautiful countryside of rolling hills and ancient villages. At the eastern boundary of the county is the New Forest, while to the North are the plains of Wiltshire. If you are looking to explore the area, see the historic towns such as Dorchester, Sherborne or Shaftesbury. If you want the full seaside resort experience, Bournemouth and Weymouth can offer that day with amusements, icr creams and rides. If you are interested in books, visit the former home of Thomas Hardy, the famous Victorian author who lived in and wrote about his beloved Dorset.
If you enjoy sporting activities, Poole and Weymouth are centres for sailing and fishing, while the Jurassic Coast is very popular for walking, as long as you are able to walk up the steep hills.
How ever much or little you intend to do on your break, Dorset has something to offer, to make it an enjoyable holiday to remember.
