Short Static Caravan & Lodge Breaks in Dorset with Darwin Escapes

If you are looking for short breaks in Dorset, then look no further than Darwin Escapes.

With its iconic Jurassic Coastline, stunning beaches and legendary cream teas, it comes as little surprise to find that Dorset is one of the most popular areas in the country with holiday makers.

We have two holiday parks to choose from in this beautiful part of the UK; both with very different characters and selling points. Regardless of your requirements, budget or tastes, we are sure we will have it covered at our resorts. Take a look at what we have on offer:


Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park

Short Breaks in Swanage

Short Breaks in Swanage – Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park

One option for short breaks in Dorset is the renowned Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park which first opened its doors way back in 1963. Although it has obviously been heavily revamped during this time, particularly since being purchased by Darwin Escapes, the resort has always strived to provide fun filled holidays for the whole family. Its prime location means that it has always been a popular destination, with it being perfectly positioned to provide unrivaled views overlooking the Purbeck coast.

We have two to three bedroom static caravan and lodge accommodation on offer at Swanage Bay View, all of which are equipped with everything you will need for self catering with complete kitchen facilities and varied range of utensils. You will also find a wide range of entertainment luxuries including TVs and DVD players.

All holiday makers will also be provided with passes to give them access to the leisure and entertainment facilities available on park. You will find something to do throughout the day here including a tropically heated indoor swimming pool where Aquafit classes are offered as well as ladies only swimming times. You can also build up an appetite at GYM SBV, which is one of the best gyms in the area with its varied equipment and classes.

In keeping with the activity theme, we have got a partnership with Cumulus Outdoors enabling us to offer guests the chance to take part in a range of Adrenalin fueled activities ranging from Coasteering and abseiling on the Dorset coastline, to mountain biking and Water Walkerz activities.

Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat

short breaks at Wareham Forest

Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat – Poole

Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat is a brand new resort which is set to open in early 2017 offering you the chance to enjoy short breaks in Dorset with hot tub facilities in luxury lodge accommodation. This is the former camping and touring park which was known as Pear Tree Holiday Park which is located near Poole.

As with the other resorts which have been renovated by Darwin Escapes in recent times, Wareham Forest has been designed with the intention of creating the go to destination for luxury in the region providing holiday makers with an unrivaled experience. All holiday lodges will be fully equipped for self catering with full kitchen facilities and dining facilities. You will also find a plethora of entertainment facilities including flat screen TVs, DVD players and complimentary Wi-Fi internet access for everyone staying on park.

Some of the lodges will have hot tub facilities on the outdoor decking area, so you can sit out in privacy and admire the surrounding woodlands. Please make sure that these facilities are included on your booking if you are specifically looking for short breaks in Dorset with hot tub facilities.

Equally, we have a selection of lodges available which are specifically allocated for guests who will be bringing their pets along with them. Please make sure that your pet is noted on your booking so we can make sure that you are allocated the correct accommodation.

  • I have spent over the years thousands of pounds staying in hotels and Bed/breakfasts around the country. I had no idea a caravan park existed and now I have found a beautiful scenic place that feels like my own home. It came to the end of my short stay a I did not want to leave, in fact I now want to buy a static home. The staff at Swanage Bay Park are so friendly, I had a wonderful nights sleep listening to the wind and the seagulls, so peaceful, so easy to go out and about and...
