Cycling is one of the best ways to explore the countryside, especially during the summer months when the long sunny days make it an absolute joy to be outdoors. As well as the spectacular scenery, one of the great things about cycling in Dorset is that there are so many great spots to stop for ...

The swannery is an ancient institution dating back to 14th century, when the swans were tended to by monks from the nearby abbey. The monks have gone, but other than that little has changed, and the swans are still fed, ...

We recently put up a great bunch of students from Birmingham Uni, and we thought we’d share a few photos with you here. The pics were taken at Blue Lias near Charmouth, and over in Lulworth.

It’s your trusty family home from home, and there are few better places to bring it to than the stunning, unforgettable ancient coastline that spans Dorset and East Devon. Our Dorset Caravan ...

The Grizzly Run is always a highlight of the early part of the season for us, and every March it brings in a flood of new guests who are taking on the grueling 20 mile challenge. For those who don’t know, the Grizzly Run is a hotly contested race that takes place every year on the Jurassic Coast, and is the UK’s third most popular long distance event after the London Marathon and the Great North Run.
