If you really want to get the most out of your holiday in Dorset then you can't beat packing your tent and going camping. The joys of long days in the great outdoors and nights under the stars are the stuff of childhood memories. There are no shortage of great campsites in Dorset both on the farm and by the coast.
Of course going camping has come a long way in recent years both in terms of popularity and facilities. Long gone are the days when a campsite meant a field on a slope which you might have to share with a herd of cows. These days campsites have a fantastic array of facilities with hot showers, electric hook ups and internet access the norm. Many of the bigger campsites have swimming pools or alternatively you could find one offering camping by the beach. Good news for pooches too, many of these offer dog friendly camping.
With the advent of glamping much of the effort and hardship of camping has been eliminated. Combining glamour and camping, the glamping experience saves you the effort (and potential disaster) of pitching up your tent. The yurts, bell-tents, safari tents, camping pods, tipis, or whatever luxury canvas you choose to sleep under are all set up and ready to go when you arrive. Just imagine it, coming in from cooking your sausages on the open fire to crash out on your comfy bed!
In the old days, if you wanted this kind of luxury you had to rent a caravan and the good news is you still can. There are quite a few caravan sites in Dorset including several Caravan Club approved sites.
If you're looking for a bit more mobility and fleibility then you may be looking for a cool campsite where you can park up your campervan. Oh, you don't have a camper van?! Not a problem. There are several campervan hire companies based in dorset that are more than happy to supply you with a classiv VW camper or modern motorhome with all the home comforts.
