Our 5 Star Luxury Holiday Parks in Dorset

Experience the Best Holiday Parks in Dorset with Darwin Escapes

Dorset is a glorious part of the UK, being home to some of the country’s top visitor attractions and natural wonders.

This includes of course the dramatic Jurassic Coast which is a recognised World Heritage Site, alongside illustrious company such as the Grand Canyon. There is also plenty to keep the whole family entertained, with a huge range of attractions and areas of interest just waiting to be explored.

You can take advantage of everything that this region has to offer when you stay at one of the best holiday parks in Dorset – Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat. This is unquestionably one of the most luxurious options for anyone who is looking for holiday parks near Poole, which is one of Dorset’s most popular visitor hot spots.

No two holidays to Dorset are quite the same, which is why you may want to consider becoming a holiday home owner here and escaping to your very own Dorset holiday retreat whenever you feel like getting away from it all. This is a possibility with Darwin Escapes at our 5 star Hawkchurch Resort & Spa located on the Dorset/Devon border.

The resort is located very close to the popular coastal town of Poole with its world class harbour which is the home of the world famous Sunseeker motor Yacht manufacturer. Sunseeker has an illustrious list of clients made up of the rich and famous, including Michael Douglas and Simon Cowell.

Poole is also a Mecca for shopping and dining, with the Quayside Emporium overlooking the harbour being a great place to enjoy a traditional British Afternoon tea and explore various crafty creations. In the centre of the town itself is the Dolphin Shopping Centre which is home to over 100 stores ranging from independent boutiques to high street favourites.
