Durdle Door Holiday Park is situated in a stunning location in the Dorset coast, away from everything that could interrupt the sense of peace and tranquillity, yet close enough to everything that there is always somewhere to go or an inspirational tourist attraction to visit.
Durdle Door is welcoming to all kinds of holidaymaker, and offers a large number of touring pitches for those with motorhomes or tents. There is also a large number of holiday homes available to rent or buy, the latter option proving popular with those looking for a permanent retreat on the south coast of England or even starting to think about their retirement.
The park overlooks miles of coastline, and access to the beach is easy. Elsewhere, the park is surrounded by rolling countryside, hills, farmland, and woodland that leave your spoiled for choice when it comes to deciding what to do on a daily basis. There are fewer better holiday parks in Dorset that give you so many options, whether you wish to relax in your rural surround or find something inspirational to do.
Away from the park, there are a number of local villages to discover, many of which feature a range of local businesses, friendly pubs, and activities for the whole family to get involved with. The pubs, in particular, are something else, with great pride taken in the heritage of the area, meaning local ales and ciders are ten to a penny, and simply have to be tried.
Elsewhere, you are within easy driving distance of Weymouth and Bournemouth, as well as the New Forest National Park, and could consider the Isle of Wight ferry or even a trip to Northern France for a holiday within a holiday.
Durdle Door itself is named for the famous limestone arch, which is situated near to the park, and is one of the best loved tourist spots anywhere in the UK.
The Dorset and East Devon Coast have won the bid for World Heritage status in Helsinki and now features alongside some of the most famous and exciting heritage sites in the world.
Lulworth Cove, Stair Hole and Durdle Door, owned and managed by the Lulworth Estate, which are all included within the World Heritage Site, are some of the most important areas of the site, having very visible geology showing what happened all those millions of years ago, to begin the creation of landforms such as the Cove, Durdle Door and the "Lulworth Crumple".

We chose Durdle Door as I had long wanted to see the famous limestone arch. The site is stunningly situated and we chose to stay on one of the sea-view pitches. We were warned that they were quite sloping and that we could change if we wanted. Nothing could have prepared us, though, for the excessively high price (£32 + £3 per dog, we have two) nor for the angle of the slope - to the extent that there were already several breeze blocks strewn around; it would have been impossible to level our motorhome without them. Had we realised that our pitch was adjacent to a public car park, we would have parked for the day and stayed elsewhere. To add insult to injury, the windscreen sticker we were asked to display was almost impossible to remove without some kind of solvent. After a long stay in the UK, this was our biggest disappointment and the worst value for money.
