Explore Our Holiday Parks in Dorset

Dorset is a glorious part of the UK, being home to some of the country’s top visitor attractions and natural wonders including the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage Site, alongside illustrious company including the Grand Canyon. There is also plenty to keep the whole family entertained, with a huge range of attractions and areas of interest.

You can see what all the fuss is about when you stay at a Darwin Escapes resort. We have two holiday parks in Dorset, one of which offers luxury holiday lodge accommodation in the form of Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat, and the other offering static caravan ownership and holiday breaks with unrivaled views of the Jurassic Coast in the form of Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park.

Take a look at our two Dorset holiday parks before deciding which option would work out best for you.

Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park

Endless beaches, the Jurassic Coast and a family friendly holiday park await you at Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park which is one of the best holiday parks in Dorset and the ideal place to stay if you are looking for an activity focused break in South West England.

Located on the South Coast, Swanage Bay View offers the perfect location for your holiday with unmatched sights across the Jurassic coastline. Overlooking this unique Swanage coastline, our Dorset holiday park serves as a base for some of the areas finest attractions and countryside. In addition to holiday breaks, Swanage Bay View offers a range of holiday homes for sale that are perfect for those wanting to visit the region time and time again.

There is plenty to do for all the family in the region, so you are unlikely to ever get bored. Weather permitting, you could choose to spend your days taking in the nearby Swanage Beach with its stunning sand dunes. The park is also in close proximity to Brownsea Island which is famous for its wildlife (including red squirrels, kingfishers and a variety of birds).

History buffs will also not be disappointed, with plenty of sites of historic interest in the area including Corfe Castle, which has stood for over 1,000 years and has a rich history, having been the scene of the death of Edward the Martyr in 978.

However, you do not always have to venture off park for something to do, thanks to our top class facilities which are open to both holiday guests and holiday home owners alike. Feel free to take advantage of our indoor swimming pool, heavily equipped gymnasium and dedicated massage therapy room.

We also have daily activity programmes where you can partake in aqua aerobic classes, indoor bowls or even try out our water walkerz. Daily activities will vary so please feel free to enquire on park for a timetable.

There is action late into the night at Swanage Bay View with our evening entertainment schedule updated weekly with themes including movie nights, cabaret acts and much more. We also have our ‘View’ restaurant which is a stunning location to eat and drink, and also comes with Sky Sports HD coverage and an Xbox to keep the kids entertained. Put simply, you will never run out of things to do at Swanage Bay View.

Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat

If you are looking for a slightly more tranquil experience, you may want to consider the recently renovated Wareham Forest Lodge Retreat. This used to be a touring caravan and camping site known as Pear Tree Holiday Park, but we felt it was time for a change and invested heavily into the resort in an attempt to create one of the most luxurious Poole holiday parks with unrivaled holiday lodge accommodation.

Our lodges are equipped with a range of home from home comforts to ensure that your stay with us is everything you could ask for and more. Inside your lodge you will find comfortable bedding, sofas and furnishings as well as an exciting entertainment package which includes a Freeview enabled TV and Wi-Fi access. If you fancy just chilling out in tranquil surroundings for a week, this is more than possible inside one of our glorious lodges.

Some of our Wareham accommodation units are even equipped with their own private hot tubs, for the ultimate relaxing break. Soak up the peaceful woodland surroundings when you sit out away from prying eyes on your external decking area. All lodges are fully equipped for self catering if you aren’t one for eating out in restaurants every night, with full kitchen facilities and an open plan dining area to be taken advantage of.

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.

  • We booked the Wareham Forest Lodge for a 30th birthday. We explained this to the staff over the phone and they made an extra effort to make the room available before normal check in . On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who were very welcoming. When entering the lodge we were surprised with processco, baloon and birthday card which was a lovely touch. The lodge itself was luxurious and very clean. It had a homely feel and quiet surroundings. We will definitely be coming back again and highly recommend!...
