Zambuka Campsite: Pebble beach nearby

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 £0.23 per kWh and must be paid onsite.

    The view

    Disliked: 

    There was no hand wash in the toilets or paper towels, you had to use toilet paper. The hot water was only on for 6 hours a day, mostly there was a queue for the wash area. There were no facilities for recycling. You had to pay in cash, and this is not a cheap site. Also, although there was phone signal, there was no data so no internet access. The walk to the beach was down a fast main road, which had no path, not a pleasant walk. We won't be back!

    An excellent stay at Zambuca campsite. A small very quiet site with excellent facilities. The shower and toilet block was very clean and easy to use. Two drinking water stations. Lovely host who pointed us in the direction of the local beaches. A choice of grass or hard standing and electricity as an option. We'll definitely be returning! Thank you.

    The view from pitch 12 was stunning and we saw wildlife and the full moon rising.

    The site was basic but clean.

    Disliked: 

    Receiving a text on the morning of our arrival asking for the balance in cash which meant we had to go out of our way for an ATM

    Despite being informed that we would be charged £0.23 per kwh for electricity, the owner was unable to work out how much we owed. We thought £4 for two nights excessive on top of the £26 per night camping fee.

    Fantastic views and lovely quiet site. Fab location

    Disliked: 

    I requested a grass pitch for our tent only to find the hard standing gravel in the middle the pitch so we had to pitch closely to the tent beside us. I felt bad for the people that were already there. Maybe, as a suggestion to separate the hard standing and grass pitches for booking?!?
    The host was lovely and very apologetic.
    There is no phone reception at all. Maybe installation of Wi-Fi that I would of been happy to pay a small fee for

    Disliked: 

    our pitch was 14 which was on a slope, not a problem if your in a van but a bit difficult for us in a tent.
    The site is very close to a main road which was busy all day and late into the night, the noise of the traffic was a problem as our pitch was closest to the road.

    The site was extremely quiet and exactly as we had hoped it would be.
    With stunning views it really was a piece of heaven.

    There was nothing as such to dislike.
    Whilst it has been pointed out that there is little to no signal for many phone networks on the site, I didn’t see this as a negative aspect to our stay.

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.

Must see

  • Weymouth Sea Life Park and Marine Sanctuary (3.6 miles)
  • Radipole Lake Nature Reserve (4.4 miles)
  • Hardy's Birthplace (5.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Max Gate (4.6 miles)
