There are some areas of the UK that lend themselves to different kinds of holidays for different reasons, and those seeking the freedom of a caravan holiday the south west coast is the place to go. Every county in the south west has its own merits, but you can do a lot worse than choosing Dorset as the destination for your next caravan holiday, and in particular the area that is called the Isle of Purbeck but is actually a peninsular that stretches out into the English Channel.
This is a stunning area that is within close proximity to major resorts such as Poole and Bournemouth, but is far enough away to have a completely laid back and relaxing holiday if you want one. With it being surrounded on three sides by water there is an abundance of water sports available, and for those who prefer their holidays to be a bit more adventurous there is a wide range of activities available including rock climbing and orienteering.
This area of the country should be fully explored, and the best holiday for affording this kind of freedom is in a caravan – either hired if you trying this out for the first time or bought from a dealer (see this website for guide prices). Luckily, there are many camping and caravanning parks in this area so you can book a break at one of these and then literally please yourself for the duration of your stay. Here are just a few of the parks in the area to give you a taste of what is on offer to help you choose where to stay on your next trip to Purbeck.
