Near the park...

As well as all the on park facilities there are some little gems to explore that are within walking distance of the park.

If you're willing (and have time!) to go further afield, there are dozens of Dorset attractions to visit. See our Dorset attractions page for ideas and inspiration!

Smugglers Inn

  • Situated on the South West Coast Path, just down the road from the Park on the cliff tops overlooking the Isle of Portland, the Smugglers Inn is a perfect example of the traditional English country pub we all know and love
  • With a beautiful garden & its own stream outside, and roaring log fires and oak beams inside, it’s cosy in the winter and glorious in the summer

Ringstead Bay

  • Part of the Jurassic Coast, on a fine day there are great views across Weymouth Bay to Portland. Spend a day on this quiet stretch of the West Dorset coast where you can take a walk across the cliff tops above Ringstead
  • Follow one of the steep ancient tracks down to the shingle beach, where the water is incredibly clear and safe for bathing

South West Coast Walking Path

  • Direct access to the South West Coast Path and the South Dorset Ridgeway route are nearby.
  • The Ridgeway not only offers fantastic views of the Jurassic Coast and the most stunning sea vistas, but also of the inland scenery of river valleys, chalk downland, villages and farmland, and it provides access to some of Dorset’s famous landmarks, including The White Horse, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove
