Sandyholme Local Area

Sandyholme Holiday Park has a superb location in the Isle of Purbeck, a different area of Dorset to our other 4 Parks. The park is located close to the village of Owermoigne, between Dorchester and Wool. There is plenty of places to visit and activities nearby the park, as well as some of the best beaches, attractions, events and locations on the Jurassic Coast within easy driving distance.

Within a 1 mile walk / drive of the Park, you will find the Mill House Cider Mueseum, Kate’s Farm Shop and Wyevale Garden Centre with the Little Digger’s children’s soft play. There is a small co-op store located in the village of Crossways, 1.7 miles from the park and the Warmwell Sports Centre with activities including crazy golf, a swimming pool, cycle hire, archery, a dry ski slope, a roller rink, soft play and more.

Just a 30 minute walk from the park is Tadnoll & Winfrith Nature Reserve, which is a beautiful area of heathland and wet meadows with a circular trail. Also nearby is Moreton Ford and Tearoom, a quiet river spot great for picnics, swimming and paddling, as well as Moreton Forest which is popular with dog walkers.

Sandyholme Holiday Park is just 5 miles from the Jurassic Coast and the nearest places to visit are Ringstead Bay, a quiet beach with stunning views towards the Isle of Portland and Osmington Mills, a hidden gem with a fantastic pub.

Two of the most visited and spectacular locations on the Jurassic Coast, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, are just 7 miles from the park and further east from Ringstead Bay and Osmington Mills. Durdle Door is a 10,000 year old limestone arch and is one of the most iconic landmarks in the whole country, while Lulworth Cove is a famous shell-shaped bay attracting up to half a million visitors each year.

While these are locations that really can’t be missed on a holiday to Dorset, there are some quieter coastal locations near the park that we love. Kimmeridge Bay is great for rock pooling, snorkelling and photography with clear waters teeming with marine life and ammonites on show on the rocks at low tide.
