Places to Visit in Dorset

Dorset is the perfect adventure for the motorhome enthusiast looking to escape to the great outdoors. Boasting a wealth of coastal landscapes, romantic countryside, and beautiful views, Dorset is sure to be an unforgettable motorhome holiday.

Enjoy a lazy day spent lounging on the golden sands of Bournemouth Beach, which boasts some of the warmest sea temperatures in the UK. Nestled beneath a magnificent cliff line, the coast offers stunning views of the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks. Take a leisurely stroll along the pier as you admire miles of breath-taking coastline. Follow meandering paths down the cliff behind Undercliff Promenade. Set up camp by Sandbanks Beach, winner of the Blue Flag award for over 30 years and considered one of Britain’s best beaches. Fine golden sand and sparkly clean waters make this the perfect location for a summer’s day out. Challenge yourself at the local crazy-golf course, or take up sports from windsurfing and water skiing to volleyball and table tennis. Sandbanks is a natural beauty the year round, offering spectacular views towards Studland, Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight.

Drive to Lodmoor in Weymouth, a quiet haven for wildlife away from the hustle and bustle of popular seaside towns. Delve into the wet grasslands, open water and saltmarshes and enjoy viewing the wide array of wildlife that is attracted to the landscape. Head to Durdle Door, one of Dorset’s most photographed and iconic landmarks in Dorset. This natural beauty is a Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and among the most famous stone arches in the world. Follow the natural cliff path down to Durdle Door beach, or follow the steps to Man O’War Beach where the tilted Purbeck Beds are clearly visible. Admire the numerous caves that sit at the base of the chalk cliffs, carved out by the sea over thousands of years.
