    Hi all, my wife has decided for the first trip we should pick Dorset, Ideally near the sea and with a pub that accepts dogs nearby. We live in Somerset and don't want an overly long first trip so any recommendations gratefully received.
    Oh and I'm not that used to driving the van (width and height) yet so avoiding really narrow lanes, tight entrances would be a bonus.

    Thanks in advance.

    Durdle door if you want a site with EHU, open all year round and close to the sea. Nearest pub down the hill in Lulworth Village.

    Have a good trip.................Griff

    There is a Haven site that takes Motorhomes in Weymouth. A great dog friendly pub over the road which also does great food.

    There is a bus stop just outside of the site gates which runs in to Weymouth, it takes 5 minutes. Or if your a good walker you can stroll along the front.
