Why Visit Us and Dorset

Reasons to visit Back of Beyond and Dorset.

Being a just for Adults Touring Park our guests may not be restricted to the school holiday and half term dates.

Here are some reasons to visit us outside the peak season: 

  • For our visitors, the weather in Dorset is about as good as you will find in the UK. Being on the south coast it benefits from the higher temperatures enjoyed by the southern counties. Our geographical position means that the weather in Dorset is sunny, and relatively dry compared to the country as a whole. The climate is therefore one of the significant attractions for this area. 
  • Back of Beyond has 364 more hours of sunshine throughout the year in comparison to the rest of UK. 
  • March to May sunshine hours increase significantly at Back of Beyond above the UK average. Likewise temperatures increase from 11 °C to 17 °C.
  • September at Back of Beyond can be as mild as June with a maximum daytime average of 19.3 °C

Here at Back of Beyond, besides the 6 acres of the caravan park and its amenities, we have 18 acres of woodland with extensive picturesque walkways, and in addition, two fishing lakes and parkland, which is also an official Site of Special Scientific interest. We take particular pride in our 30 acres and we have the honour of having been awarded the David Bellamy gold medal. 

At the end of an eventful day enjoying the local area, you will be able to relax in the tranquillity of our beautiful surroundings.

There are many attractions in the neighbouring area to explore including the New Forest, a myriad of quaint coastal towns, rugged walks and breathtakingly beautiful coastal scenes. 

  • We have 100 miles of coastline with award winning golden sandy beaches on our doorstep.
  • Stretching for 95 miles, the Jurassic Coast is the only natural World Heritage Site in England. Hunt for fossils at Charmouth or Kimmeridge and see if you can discover a dinosaur!
  • If you fancy climbing the highest point along the south coast of England, head for Golden Cap – owned by the National Trust.
  • Over the centuries, the Dorset landscape has inspired artists, writers and scientists to produce outstanding work.
  • More recently, West Bay was the backdrop to the award winning TV drama Broadchurch, written by Dorset resident Chris Chibnall.
  • Dorset is full of festivals. Take your pick from Dorset knob throwing (May), the great Chilli Festival (August), Lyme Regis Fossil Festival (April), arts, film, literary, walking, food, drink, music, flowers, hats, Christmas trees, Tolpuddle Martyrs (July), Camp Bestival (July) and the Great Dorset Steam Fair (August).
  • With Dorset’s mild climate and fertile soil, the county is home to some of the finest local produce and coupled with fresh seafood, Dorset has a winning combination for fabulous food and drink. 

According to the Office for National Statistics, Dorset has the highest life expectancy in Britain. We like to think that even those who visit us benefit from this; want to know the secret of a long and happy life?
