There's no better way to explore the stunning Jurassic coast than by ambling along the South West Coast Path. The long, sandy blue-flag beach at Studland Bay is just 10 minutes’ drive from Woodyhyde, and the entire Jurassic Coast, including the lovely Lulworth Cove and the famous Durdle Door rocks, are within easy reach. The ruins of Corfe Castle are in the nearby village of the same name, though cream teas in town may be even more popular. Putlake Farm (01929 422917) at Langton Matravers, offers interactive animal adventures including bottle-feeding lambs and goats. There’s also an indoor soft-play zone, outdoor play area and café. Family tickets are £18.50. 

Food & Drink

Dorset cream teas are available everywhere, including the particularly welcoming National Trust Tea Room in Corfe Castle. Alternatively, take a walk over Ballard Down, passing Old Harry Rocks and winding up at the bottom of Studland village at the award-winning Bankes Arms Country Inn (01929 450225). They serve bar snacks and meals of fresh local produce, and a range of ales from small independent breweries, including their own microbrewery.

Family Friendly

Waving at steam trains and choosing which ice creams to eat have always been our favourite pastimes. Timeless, traditional Woodyhyde Campsite can offer both. Sometimes even at the same time.

Getting There

From the village of Corfe Castle, take the A351 towards Swanage. A mile outside Corfe, look out for the ‘Woodyhyde’ sign and turning on the right, then follow the track under the bridge and into the campsite.

Take the train to Wareham, then bus 142 (not very regular, unfortunately) to Harman's Cross. The bus will stop at the top of Valley Road, and the campsite is about 350 metres down the track from the main road.
