Motorhome and Away



A delightful county to tour once away from the large towns of Bournemouth and Poole in the east of the county.

There are now a few motorhome parking spaces in some of the car parks in Poole (both towns have signs in their car parks banning sleeping cooking). In Poole the Baiter car park to the east of the quayside has good views overlooking the harbour and there is parking at Sandbanks for good beaches. 

Our favourite areas are the Isle of Purbeck from Swanage along to Lulworth Cove. Access from Poole via the Sandbanks chain ferry makes a pleasant diversion with good parking at the National Trust Visitor Centre at Studland Bay. (Note that there is a naturist beach area at the northern end!).

Lyme Regis has motorhome parking bays in a couple of the car parks.
