VAT Rise on Static Caravan Sales Shelved!

We were really pleased to hear recently that the government has now back-tracked on their plans to increase the VAT on static caravan sales later this year.

Obviously this is great news for anyone ...

Cycling Dorset's Beautiful Countryside

West Dorset is a cyclist’s dream. The area has many purpose built cycle paths, with lots of easy, relaxing routes that are suitable for inexperienced cyclists and families with small children. 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, ...

In recent years our Dorset caravan park has become a favourite with university geology departments looking for accommodation for field trips to the Jurassic Coast. 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.
