    Planning for two nights in New Forest then a few nights in Dorset at Durdle Door first week in July. Don't know the area at all but always wanted to see DD & Lulworth. What else should we make sure we see whilst in the area ?
    TIA

    Norden farm is well placed for seeing the sites.
    Not to bad priced.
    Don't forget a visit to Tyneham village (if you can fit your van in)

    We've stayed at Ulwell Cottage which is within walking distance of lovely Swanage Bay and just a 10 min drive to Studland (great beach to watch the boats in and out of Poole harbour and 10 mins the other way is Corfe Castle. Good site overall. The site at Durdle Door is ok but beware, if you want a sea view pitch they are pricy and very sloping! Love the area, in fact we're heading down there this weekend for 3 weeks!

    Lym Regis is nice it has the cob,also a nature reserve called the undercliff.Some years back we stayed at a site in Axmouth & walked the undercliff east back to Lyme Regis,if memory serves me right it's about 7 miles long. Fascinating place.lots of different fauna & flora.Came face to face with a stag :eek:.We love Dorset probably our favourite county.
