Why Visit Us and Dorset

With 6 acres of caravan park, modern amenities and 18 acres of woodland as well as fishing lakes and parkland in an SSSI, Back of Beyond is perfect for relaxing and enjoying nature. We take pride in our 30 acres and we have the honour of having been awarded the David Bellamy gold medal. 

At the end of an eventful day enjoying the local area, you’ll be able to relax in the tranquillity of our beautiful surroundings.

There are many attractions in the neighbouring area to explore including the New Forest, quaint coastal towns, rugged walks and breathtakingly beautiful coastal scenes. 

  • We have 100 miles of coastline with award winning golden sandy beaches on our doorstep.
  • Stretching for 95 miles, the Jurassic Coast is the only natural World Heritage Site in England. Hunt for fossils at Charmouth or Kimmeridge and see if you can discover a dinosaur!
  • If you fancy climbing the highest point along the south coast of England, head for Golden Cap – owned by the National Trust.
  • Over the centuries, the Dorset landscape has inspired artists, writers and scientists to produce outstanding work.
  • More recently, West Bay was the backdrop to the award winning TV drama Broadchurch, written by Dorset resident Chris Chibnall.
  • Dorset is full of festivals. Take your pick from Dorset knob throwing (May), the great Chilli Festival (August), Lyme Regis Fossil Festival (April), arts, film, literary, walking, food, drink, music, flowers, hats, Christmas trees, Tolpuddle Martyrs (July), Camp Bestival (July) and the Great Dorset Steam Fair (August).
  • With Dorset’s mild climate and fertile soil, the county is home to some of the finest local produce and coupled with fresh seafood, Dorset has a winning combination for fabulous food and drink. 

According to the Office for National Statistics, Dorset has the highest life expectancy in Britain. We like to think that even those who visit us benefit from this; want to know the secret of a long and happy life?
