Herston Caravan and Camping is an award-winning family-friendly site just outside the town of Swanage on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. There's a sandy beach in the town, as well as lots of restaurants, pubs and shops.
There's plenty to do in the surrounding area for all ages: perhaps take a ride on the steam-powered Swanage Railway, visit Monkey World or take a walk on the South West Coast Path. The popular attractions of Corfe Castle, Old Harry Rocks and Durdle Door are all less than half an hour's drive away as well.
Facilities on site include free wifi, a playground and a mini market that also functions as a visitor information centre. The café/bar sells meals, coffees and a range of cocktails, and there's also a separate show bar with dance floor and a lively entertainment programme of live music, karaoke and other events.
Toilet blocks have hot showers, family bathrooms and disabled facilities, and the site also has a launderette and a washing-up area.
Dogs are welcome at the park as long as they are kept on a lead and don't leave any mess.
The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
