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