Jurassic Coast


The Jurassic Coast has been designated by UNESCO as one of the world's outstanding areas of natural beauty. It stretches 95 miles from Orcombe Point in Devon to Old Harry Rocks in East Dorset (with us right in the middle!)

There are a number of ways to explore the coastline from Newlands Holiday Park, so if you are camping with us here are a few suggestions to help you get out and about:

BY BUS: The award winning Coast X53 is the perfect way to visit many of the main attractions along the Coast.
The First Day Southwest Family ticket can be used by up to 5 people (max 2 adults) for a day's unlimited travel on all First buses in Dorset & Somerset plus most in Devon, Cornwall, Bath and Bristol!  New for 2017 is the Lyme Regis  - Charmouth saver ticket available on the bus. Please ask the driver for details. 

      

BY FOOT: The South West Coast Path National Trail is over 1000km long, and much of it is maintained by the National Trust.

BY BOAT: The best way to see the coast is from the sea. Boat and fishing trips can be taken from Lyme Regis, Beer and West Bay.

Some of our Favourite Places on the Jurassic Coast:

Durdle Door

Famous the world over, Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch formed over millions of years by erosion of the rock by the sea. It is adjoined by a lovely pebble beach and no visit to the Jurassic Coast is complete without going down to get a photo in front of it.



Lulworth Cove

A short (and very scenic) walk away is Lulworth Cove, another of Dorset’s natural wonders. The horse shoe shaped cove is a great place to go swimming or kayaking, and the town of Lulworth itself is a great place to explore, stop for a bite to eat and pick up souvenirs.





Golden Cap

This one’s right on our doorstep! Golden Cap is the highest cliff in Southern England, reaching a might 191 metres – 30 metres taller than Beachy Head in Sussex! Don’t be put off by its daunting size though – the summit of the cliff is easily reached by following the gently inclining pathway that leads up to it, and trust us, the view from the top is definitely worth the effort!  Read more about Golden Cap



West Bay

West Bay may be familiar to many of you as the setting for the ITV crime drama Broadchurch,  starring David Tennant. The town and its towering sand-coloured cliffs made a great location for the TV drama, and are well worth paying a visit during your stay in Dorset. More exciting landmarks have been shown in the second series.
