On a visit to West Dorset why not stay and enjoy a family holiday in and around West Bay on the Jurassic Coast – there’s a large caravan holiday park right by the harbour and follow in the footsteps of the hugely popular Broadchurch TV series.
West Dorset Villages
A visit to the historic village of Abbotsbury is a must, where you’ll discover a beautiful village that’s steeped in history going back thousands of years. If you’re holidaying in the area you’ll want to come back again to explore the many and delightful walks around the village and the surrounding area.
Strolling around Burton Bradstock and you’ll see a picture postcard thatched roof cottage village. Next to the old school is the beautiful church and where you can explore outstanding footpaths and walks in the idyllic countryside.
Portesham is one of those villages that can easily be missed and it’s such a great place to stop and explore, especially if you enjoy walking on a visit or holiday with some great walks around the area.
If you’re touring around West Dorset on a visit or holiday then coming to Shipton Gorge is highly recommended. Come and explore this small, but beautiful village which is divided into old and new, and it’s set amongst glorious rolling hills and farmland.
Visit West Bexington, a popular but very small village and great for walkers. After descending down into the village you’ll come to the large car park right on the Jurassic coast beach itself where you can enjoy commanding views out to sea and back up to the picturesque hills. There’s also access to the wildlife nature reserve.
