dorset camping




With a hint of warm weather and a bank holiday stretching out in front of us, we headed to Dorset for our first camping trip of the year. Our site was on the Isle of Purbeck, surrounded by fields full of sheep and lambs.

Once the tent was up, we took a walk through the fields towards the sea, and met some of our noisy neighbours...







Although it was chilly in the evenings, the days were bright and sunny. After breakfast and a walk along the beach at Studland, we drove out towards Weymouth to see the White Horse, a local landmark sculpted into the limestone hill, depicting King George III on horseback.




We also stopped at one of my favourite places, Lulworth Cove, for an ice cream and walk around the pebble beach.






I'll post the rest of the photos later in the week, I managed to take quite a few! I'm going to catch up on some blog reading now, so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else did this weekend!

    1. thanks Jen! Yes, although both the beaches and campsite were quite busy, we didn't have to go far to find some peace and quiet! x

  2. I love Dorset, we camped at Durdle Door a couple of years ago, you are very brave to camp so early in the year, was it really cold at night? We haven't been yet this year, hoping to get away at the end of may - I can't wait!!

    1. Hi Nicola, lovely to find you here! Oh yes, camping at Durdle Door sounds amazing! It was very cold at night actually, we ended up in the local pub most nights! Hopefully, in a few weeks the weather should improve sufficiently so that it isn't completely freezing! x
