General

  • Peaceful site a mile above Swanage: spectacular views over the bay
  • Close to the Juassic Coast, Corfe Castle and Wareham
  • Leisure club next door with pool, gym, sauna, bar and restaurant

Swanage, you say? For a summer sojourn on a peaceful park close to the dino and fossil hunting, beaches and watersports of the mega fab Jurassic Coast? Pass the bucket, the spade, the flippers… and all the beach, seaside and holiday bits you can cram into the car, to have a hol as long as you can possibly manage.

And if you’re at Swanage Coastal Park? Bolt on loads of exploring room, closeness to Dorset coast and countryside attractions, and spectacular views of the coastline and deep blue waters: this spacious, quiet and green park covers 15 acres of countryside, with fab views over Swanage Bay and the Purbeck Hills below.

Swanage town is a mile away along an easily accessible path, Corfe Castle is five miles away, and it’s about half an hour’s drive from Swanage to Monkey World or Brownsea Island… all just, a teeny bit, for starters. Poole, Bournemouth and Dorset are all easily reached by the chain ferry: again, you’ll want to have a hol around here for as long as you possibly manage.

As a quiet park, Swanage Coastal doesn’t have a pool, bar or noisy entertainment/ activities, so is just the serene ticket for those desperately seeking summer sanctuary or flee from nightly discos. Amenities are plentiful, including showers and toilets, a launderette, a washing-up area and ice pack freezing; pitches are non-electric, on grass overlooking the bay.

If in between your Dorset exploring days you do fancy being a tad active around base, the leisure site next door offers day memberships to its health and fitness area, where there’s a pool, gym, sauna and solarium as well as a bar and restaurant.

Local attractions

The park is high up above the blue waters of Swanage Bay, just under a mile’s walk from the shops, bars, restaurants of Swanage town. There are miles of safe and clean beaches in Swanage too, as well as an award-winning pier; amusement arcades; deckchair, pedalo and boat hire, and access to the Jurassic Coast: Swanage is at its eastern end.

To explore the coast from here, get all aboard a heritage train trip on the Swanage Railway, steaming along to the riverside town of Wareham (Monkey World!) via stops including Corfe Castle and the Isle of Purbeck’s Harman's Cross. If you’re up for hiking, and the kids are of an age to scramble around a bit of coast, explore by foot instead along a stage of the South West Coast Path, or take one of the shorter routes around the coast and the cliffs.

The most strenuous hiking stretch around here is the 12 or so mile run to Corfe Castle (fret not, you can get the train back); for a shorter or more kid-friendly amble, try the Durlston Country Park clifftop trail, around the comely coastal nature reserve.

Within easy day trip distance are Brownsea Island, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, Poole, Shell Bay, Sandbanks, Dorchester… just set off by train, bus or car to see where you end up.
