General

  • Peaceful adults-only farm site one mile from the Jurassic coast
  • A 10-minute drive from Durdle Door; 15 minutes from Weymouth
  • Walking distance from the South West Coast Path and a dog-friendly pub

Sign yourself up for sea views and nearby sandy stretches… a 15-minute drive from Weymouth Beach and Dorchester, Zambuka Campsite is set up for a rather peaceful stay one mile from the Jurassic Coast. Here, you’ll be well-situated for setting off along the South West Coast Path half an hour’s walk away, touching down at the National Trust’s Ringstead Bay (10 minutes’ drive) or ogling over the iconic Durdle Door (10 minutes’ drive).

The family has farmed at this site for over 50 years, so owner Kay is well-prepared to answer any questions you might have. She’ll also point you in the direction of what to see and do in the surrounding countryside, even if your most pressing question is where to get the nicest fish and chips locally (spoiler, there are several spots within five minutes’ drive of the site).

Facilities on the site include an amenities block and a washing-up area, handy if built up a sizable stash of dirty tupperware from picnics out and about. If you don’t want your dog to miss out on the picnics and splendid seaside routes, then don’t worry, as dogs are also welcome on site.

Looking to sample some good pub grub or local specialities? It’s likely you do, and handily, there are several restaurants and pubs within five minutes’ drive of the site. One such place is a dog-friendly 13th-century pub on the South West Coast Path that you can walk to in half an hour.

Please note

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

Electricity is metered on site at £0.49 per kWh and must be paid at check-out.

From 01 October to 31 March, the hot water will only be on between 8am and 10am.

    Quite good view.

    Disliked: 

    We are used to paying around 25 euros for quite luxurious facilities. Therefore it was a shock to be charged £35 plus £6.50 electricity for a simple field with a rudimentary shed as a toilet facility. We did enjoy the area though, despite the traffic noise.

    Great location. & views over the hills & out to sea were amazing. Showers were spacious & nice hot water.

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch was on a slope, not ideal in a tent. (Mobile signal was quite poor. Fine if you’re ‘escaping’ - & might be dependent on network)

    All pitches have hard standing/gravel areas & grass. Tricky to pitch a tent on the grass without encroaching a little bit close to a neighbour.

    Quite near to a busy/noisy road. There’s a lot of road noise.

Local attractions

Walks over the Jurassic coast are particularly splendid around here, and especially across Chesil Beach (25 minutes’ drive). At 18 miles long, feel free to take on a short stretch or tackle the entire barrier beach. The views from the cliffs are spectacular at Durdle Door (20 minutes), so get picture ready there.

Otherwise, roll up to Weymouth Beach (15 minutes) and arm yourself with a surfboard or pull on a wetsuit or bathing costume for a lap of the beach and other watersports. swimming, surfing and other watersports (15 minutes). Abbotsbury Swannery (half an hour) is another pretty cool coastal location, home to a colony of nesting swans.

There are walks around the spacious grounds of Lulworth Castle Wareham (20 minutes) too. If you’re looking for a lighter sort of stroll, just visit Dorchester (15 minutes) and lazily work your way around the sights. The town has a deep literary history, as well as museums, castles and shops.

While you’re focusing on scoping out historical sites, there’s an Iron Age hillfort at Maiden Castle (20 minutes). For something more modern-day, though, SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth (10 minutes) doubles up as an adventure park and aquarium.
