Camping Cheque

If you’re looking for somewhere quiet, well maintained and with great countryside views, then you won’t find a better campsite or touring park in Dorset than Newlands.

Facilities on hand include modern clean toilets, showers, laundry and baby changing facilities – with under floor heating and high quality fixtures and fittings including sockets for your hair dryer or styler.

For 2017 there are 3 types of electric pitch for the caravans and motorhomes.

Grass pitch with 10 amp electric hook ups, Premium hardstanding pitches with 16 amp electric, mains water and drainage fro grey waste and new for 2016 are our hardstanding pitches with grass for the awning and a 16amp hook-up.

Pitches are terraced and level overlooking the valley near Lyme Regis. 

You'll marvel at our lovely landscaped park whilst taking in views of the scenic surrounding countryside.

Best Campsite in Dorset   


Top tent field (known as the blue field) is located at the top of the park, and has unmarked areas so you can choose your own spot wherever you like! Please note only breathable ground sheets are permitted for awnings, and in high season we restrict the maximum tent size to 4.5 x 7 metres.

We now have limited availability for larger tents with 10 amp electric hook-up on our blue field and without electric on our yellow field.. Gazebos are not allowed during high season.

Pitches: we cannot reserve specific pitch numbers, our wardens pitch you on arrival. However, we can make a special note on your booking if you prefer to be near toilets or with friends etc., but requests cannot be guaranteed. 

Charcoal BBQ'S are allowed if raised off the ground. Please note we do not allow open fires or Pit fires.

Wooden Camping Pods in Dorset

   Camping pods in Dorset


Each wooden camping pod is 4.8m long x 2.44 m wide. They are fully insulated with double glazed patio doors and a small wooden porch which includes 2 attached boot boxes that can be used as seating benches on the porch area.

A camping pod sleeps a maximum of 4 persons (including babies) with a double and 2 single beds. These pods are ideal for two adults and two children and save you the tie of putting up a tent. Also referred to as Glamping Pods there are 2 single beds with an archway through to the double bed. You would need to provide all your own equipment.

There is electricity with a light, a small heater, a double plug socket, smoke detector and carbon monoxide alarm inside the pod.

The camping pods are situated at the top of our camping field with parking for 1 car, and only a short stroll to the amenity block. There is a picnic bench outside the pod for your use and space for a BBQ (all BBQ’s must be raised off the ground). Open /pit fires and gazebo’s/tents are not permitted on these plots.

TripAdvisor Review

"Great Fun in the Pods" 

Reviewed: 27 June 2016 

We stayed in pods 1 & 2 they were in a lovely elevated position at the top of the  field. They were clean, warm and cosy. Our children really enjoyed
themselves. There is room behind the pods to play and a picnic bench to the side of each one which was perfect for bbq and breakfast.
