Woodlands Campsite: Grass pitches

General

  • Well-kept family holiday park near the Jurassic Coast
  • A 10-minute drive from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door
  • Peaceful site five minutes' drive from shops, pubs and a train station

Looking for the best of both worlds with seclusion and family activities to suit a range of crowds? Carve out the way to Woodlands Campsite, a private site in the middle of the Dorset countryside.

Two miles from the small village of Wool and an easy 10-minute drive from Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, you’ll be excellently positioned for all things fossil hunting, coastal walks and beach days…

Your new base is situated in a tranquil setting surrounded by three acres of meadows. Access to the site is via a private gated entrance that leads into a large open area of green space fringed by trees (so, there’s plenty of greenery to wake up to each day). Carefully-tended barbecues and well-behaved dogs are also welcome at this friendly and laidback site.

Woodlands Campsite, which has flushing toilets and a free shower block with hot water, would be well-suited to families who are looking to maximise their time in the surrounding area at a no-nonsense rural campsite.

For a range of handy village amenities, steer yourself in the direction of Wool (five minutes' drive). There’s a shop for picking up supplies, or you could catch a train down to Bournemouth or Weymouth from the station or taste test the local ales at the pub.

    Was told to put tents in what can only be described as a front garden. Wasp nest under a tree where tents would have been. Very close to a road no space for the children to play. We didn’t stay booked onto another site.

Local attractions

What Jurassic coast wonders might you want to indulge in from Woodlands Campsite? Lulworth Cove (10 minutes’ drive) is a wise place to start, especially if you’re impartial to coasteering, swimming or hiking to caves, blow holes and other coves. Ticking off Durdle Door (10 minutes) is a big one too – just don’t forget to snap a selfie in front of the arches before heading for the sand.

If you prefer to start with a little history, Lulworth Castle (10 minutes) has a grand look, and the grounds make a rather excellent picnic setting. There are hilltop ruins at Corfe Castle (15 minutes) and war tanks at The Tank Museum (10 minutes), or to pretend you're travelling back in the old days, there are steam train rides departing from Harman's Cross Station (15 minutes).

Visiting a Dorset ghost village could also form a part of your plan - Tyneham (20 minutes) was left to its own devices in the war in 1943, and parts have been left untouched since.

You may wish to return to the coast for a snorkelling session over the corals at Kimmeridge Bay (20 minutes). There's plenty of plant life to admire at the Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens (40 minutes) too. If you'd rather watch monkeys in action, head to Monkey World (10 minutes).

  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (3.3 kilometres)
