- Quiet park with countryside and farmland setting
- Five minutes' drive from Hive Beach
- Less than a mile from Burton Bradstock
It’s jolly diverse, the British countryside. Take for example the quiet Graston Copse Holiday Park near Bridport, where there’s more habitat on the doorstep than visitors can shake a stick at.
You could sit in the shade in the leafiness of the park’s mature trees, amble around the surrounding farmland, take riverside or woodland walks, go to spot water voles, kingfishers and woodpeckers steps away in the Dorset countryside, or drive to the beach just five minutes away… just to get you started.
There’s also the quintessential English village in the vicinity too: Burton Bradstock, with its 16th- and 17th-century thatched cottages, beach café... and the chance to spot local resident Billy Bragg (you don't get that in many quintessential English villages).
The park has good basic amenities: a washing-up area, free ice block freezing facilities, chemical disposal, free showers and free hairdryers, and a tourist information point with details on what to see and do in the area.

Marketeers should make a mosey around Bridport their first stop – there’s been a market in the town since Queen Elizabeth (the first one) graciously granted permission. The Bridport Museum is also worth a stop, and, as shopping and sightseeing are thirsty work, a visit to sample the ale at the 18th-century Palmers Brewery is highly recommended.
Bridport’s a gateway town for the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast, with enough to do to keep the whole family busy for weeks – fossil hunting, crabbing, boat tours, sea fishing and watersports are all around to try, or you could see the country from above and below with a spot of paragliding or scuba diving.
Beachwise, there’s bags of choice within a short journey of Graston Copse: the small pebbly beach at Hive is a National Trust site; drop in while here to sample the seafood at the acclaimed Hive Beach Café. The village of Burton Bradstock is tucked at the westerly end of 18-mile Chesil Beach, one of three major shingle structures in Britain (it’s said that smugglers in years gone by could tell exactly where they were on the beach even in the dead of night, just by the feel of the shingle).
For west Dorset attractions, go to meet the inhabitants at Abbotsbury Swannery: there are over 600 hungry beaks to hand-feed here, as well as a kids' farm and award-winning gardens to look around.
