Sandyholme is a great place for a camping holiday in Dorset. The small, friendly park has a beautiful location surrounded by nature reserves, countryside, rivers and walking trails. The park is perfect for families and couples to enjoy a camping holiday, using the park as a base from which to explore the Jurassic Coast, which is just 5 miles from the park.
There are a range of pitches to choose from with or without electric hook-up and a spacious non-electric meadow accommodating up to 80 tents and a further smaller field (Silver Acres), that is open in the summer. The toilet and shower block is free to use and has excellent facilities, with hot showers, hairdryers, toilets, a laundry room (charges apply), visitor information, washing up sinks and a freezer for ice blocks.
The park is a haven for nature and a multiple winner of the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award for our work with nature and the environment. There is a wildlife lake on park with a range of ducks and mallards and there is an array of wildlife elsewhere around the park including woodpeckers, bees and butterflies. Walk down through the meadow and you will reach the Tadnoll Brook River and a small lake with dragonflies. At dusk and dawn, this is a popular place for deer.
Dogs are welcome with all camping bookings (max of 2) and prices vary per night depending upon the time of year. Please keep dogs on leads at all times and dogs must not be left unattended at any time. There are footpaths nearby for dog walking, as well as the meadow on the park.
There is a park reception with a small shop selection including ice creams and drinks and there is a small co-op store at a nearby village, just 1 mile from the park and larger supermarkets in Dorchester. The park also has a playing field with football goals and a children’s play area and there is a Soft Play nearby at the village of Owermoigne.
Nearby, you will find the Mill House Cider Museum and some of the biggest and best attractions in Dorset like Monkey World, The Tank Museum and Sculpture on the Lakes. This is a great location for a walking holiday with plenty of footpaths and lanes criss-crossing the Dorset countryside around the park, including walks around Tadnoll Nature Reserve, which is awash with a carpet of purple flowers in the summer. At the coast there are dramatic walks with spectacular views and we particularly recommend walking from Ringstead Bay to White Nothe and between Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

An excellent Park as a base to visit the Dorset coast, Jurassic Coast, Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, to name a few.

10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

The location is amazing, right on the beach and all the facilities are good. It's a hidden gem this one, one of the best parks in the country

The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
