On our 4th day of Jolly’s Jurassic Adventure we left Corfe Castle to travel a short 11.5 miles westwards to Lulworth Cove for a cheeky one-nighter on a sea-view pitch at Durdle Door Holiday Park.
Again, the weather remained dry and hot. We quickly pitched up and set the barbie going for a tasty, relaxing lunch looking out to sea, before exploring the immediate area around the site.
From the site you can take the uphill walk along the cliff side over to the 10,000 year old Lulworth Cove with heritage centre and village.
We were perfectly placed to appreciate Lulworth Cove and also the magnificent Durdle Door arch situated along a shingle beach. In fact, just a short stroll from our pitch brought us out at 2 grass stump seats (an older couple we passed gave us a tip to view the arch from here as they had been returning to do for the last 10 years!). We were grateful to them for sharing this with us as it meant we were able to avoid the crowds down below and discovered it to be a very tranquil viewpoint. We therefore decided to crack open a bottle of bubbly and spent a relaxing afternoon making the most of this special site without another soul around us. Perfect!
The day was over quickly but our short stopover had been rewarding in so many ways and well worth every second. We sat and watched a lovely sunset before turning in for the night.
Next stop the following morning was to be 17 miles further westwards to Chickerell, just outside Weymouth.

I think we are following you around this year. We’re at Thurstaston last weekend (2nd visit this year) and off to Dorset on Saturday for a week.
We’ll keep an eye out for you in the rear view mirror then! How was Dorset?
