Many people put a VW campervan experience on their bucket list, and it’s easy to see why. When you rent a campervan, you get the freedom to go where you want, take a break from technology and go back to basics. Our VW campervan hire Dorset experience is the perfect adventure.
Often a victim of being "on the way" to Devon and Cornwall, Dorset has more than its fair share of stunning scenery, idyllic country villages and beautiful beaches. Recently becoming England’s first World Heritage site, the Jurassic Coast has 95 miles of rugged clifftops and peaceful coves which can be investigated as part of a trip.
Swanage is a great place to start your trip. The chalk stacks of Old Harry Rocks pretty much mark the beginning of the Jurassic Coast, which is accessible by following the South West Coast Path. This is just the entry to 95 miles of beautiful scenery, allowing you to take in many small coves and coastal villages.
Lyme Regis, famous for its geology and a prime destination for fossil hunters, makes an ideal stop off if you’re traveling in a VW camper van. The geology of the area means that fossil hunters can search for remains of sea creature which lived in the seas up to 180 million years ago. But this seaside town is not just about old rocks. To the east of the town is the famous Cobb which dates from the times of Edward I and provides shelter for the fishing boasts still using the harbour to this day. Holding on to its routes, Lyme Regis has a gorgeous golden beach and facilities which make it great for a family break.
Often seen as the coastal flagship of Dorset, Bournemouth has miles of golden beaches and during the summer months draws in holiday makers from far and wide. There are a mixture of beach types, with something to suit everyone, from the golden sands and shallow waters of Sandbanks with some of the UK’s most expensive property through to Boscombe beach favoured by surfers and where an artificial reef has been built purely to improve the surfing conditions. To the east of Bournemouth, and now connected is Poole with its quay and harbour holding many expensive and beautiful boats. Whether you’re after some 5 star cuisine or a bag of chips on the key – you’ll find it!
Head east from the more populated areas of Poole and the pace of life slows a little (or maybe a lot). Starting with the beauty of Swanage and Studland, there are numerous places to visit which are unspoiled, making them fitting locations to get some rest and relaxation by getting off the beaten track. Places such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Chesil Beach provide the optimal environment to soak up the scenery, sit back and reflect on life with none of the bright lights and commercialised centre to distract you. There’s more to do in Dorset!
Our main depot in Southampton provides easy access to Dorset and the stunning scenery on the journey, such as the New Forest national park. Whether you’re up for a bit of adventure or you just want to put your feet up and enjoy the surroundings, you’ll find plenty to do in Dorset.
