Chalk Meadow: Peaceful countryside views

General

  • Grass meadow on the outskirts of Broadmayne village in rural Dorset
  • A 25-minute drive to the Jurassic Coast and 10 minutes to Dorchester
  • Lots of safe space for kids to play; 10-minute walk to a pub and shops

Looking to really, really get back to nature? Well, this may be the spot for you. Chalk Meadows is a secluded, grass paddock site on the outskirts of the sleepy Dorset village of Broadmayne. Facilities are minimal (loos and hot showers) and there’s no electricity, but that’s part of its rural charm.

Couples, families and well-behaved dogs – all are welcome here, for relaxing country breaks mooching across the fields, but if you want to get out exploring, there’s masses to do for everybody.

You can walk to Osmington White Horse in 45 minutes, and if you’re looking forward to splashing around in the sea with the kids, you’ve got the choice of Chesil (25 minutes), Preston and Ringstead (both 15 minutes) beaches.

You can spark up the barbecue on site (remember to bring your own) and it’s an easy 10-minute walk to Broadmayne to stock up on supplies in the convenience stores. Don’t want to cook? No worries, there’s a pub in the village too.

For bigger shopping trips, the lively market town of Dorchester (10 minutes) is your best bet, and you’ll probably want to stay a while to poke around its markets, museums and Thomas Hardy's Cottage (15 minutes).

Local attractions

Where first for the kids? SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth (15 minutes), Fantasy Island (15 minutes) or the Teddy Bear Museum in Dorchester (10 minutes)? If that’s not enough to keep them happy, you can try Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (20 minutes).

You can have lots of adventures along the Jurassic Coast too. Go walking at Chesil (25 minutes), or search for fossils on the pebbly beach at Charmouth (50 minutes). You can stroll along the cliff path from pretty Lulworth Cove to see Durdle Door (both 20 minutes) or gaze out over the English Channel from Portland Bill Lighthouse (40 minutes).

The kids have had their fun, so now you get a go. Weymouth (20 minutes) has a pretty harbour lined with boats as well as lots of seafront bars and restaurants, while late-night Poole (40 minutes) is a great spot for pub crawling with a whole slew of restaurants. If late nights are not your thing, have a nose around the hilltop ruins of Corfe Castle (30 minutes).
