There is a wide variety of holiday parks in Dorset to suit every style of holiday from family breaks to romantic getaways, and every budget from cheap to luxury. With its good weather and clean beaches, Dorset is the perfect location for a holiday park break, and that's why several of the large chain holiday park companies have opened holiday parks across Dorset. Hoseasons have nine different holiday parks in Dorset, located around Wareham, Christchurch, Weymouth, Poole, Bridport and Charmouth, and there are also four Haven holiday parks in Dorset, which are located around Weymouth and Poole.
If you opt to stay in more basic holiday parks in Dorset, you can save even more money, and instead of the activities and entertainment provided on site you could explore Dorset and find your own fun. The price of holidays in Dorset holiday parks also depends on the type of accommodation you choose, as chalets and lodges generally cost more than static caravans or wigwams.
The camping holiday was invented by the English and is still a traditional English holiday, even though the weather in England sometimes makes camping difficult! Dorset is a great location for camping and whether you want a luxury camping holiday, a walking holiday with tent accommodation or a family camping break, Dorset is the place to go. There are hundreds of camp sites in Dorset, from very basic campsites where all you get is a flat patch of grass and permission to make a fire, to luxury five star camp sites which provide you with large ready erected tents which have beds inside and a luxury shower block around the corner.
Taking your own tent camping in England is by far the cheapest holiday you can have, as basic tent pitches are available in Dorset for under £5 per night. However, if you would like a little more luxury and facilities such as nice showers, a cafe and a shop you may have to pay slightly more. The luxury ready pitched tents that you will find on luxury holiday parks can be relatively expensive, but then you do get access to the holiday park facilities such as swimming pools and evening entertainment. With camping in Dorset you get what you pay for, and the price reflects the comfort and facilities of the campsite.
