Rusty’s Camping Holiday in Dorset

Do you want to take your dog on an enjoyable, hassle-free holiday in the UK ?

Dog Holidays are my favourite type of holiday; especially camping holidays – because I get to exercise lots, spend all my time in The Great Outdoors and live a simple, stress-free life for a week or two … with a deliriously happy dog !!

We’ve just come back from at week at a brilliant ‘dog-friendly’ venue in Dorset –  Rosewall Campsite – on the ‘jaw-dropping’ Jurassic coastline at a place called Osmington Mills, in peaceful surroundings just east of the tourist trap of Weymouth.

It’s a friendly, family-run site with clean, modern facilities and is on gentle, terraced slopes surrounded by the coastal hills – only a few minutes walk from the rock-pool beach and a pub serving delicious food and beers. And guess what...It’s Dog Friendly !

Rusty loves his holidays – it means 24-hour access to his two favourite people – with no chance of being left alone whilst chores are done, plus being to sleep in the tent right alongside us.

Dorset is a great place for Rusty –  with many long walks along the rugged, Jurassic coastline & daily opportunities for swimming – and our full attention !!

The benefits for us owners are also many – the fantastic scenery and unspoilt, peaceful countryside. For example, just 100 yards west of Durdle Door the crowds are left behind you …

The weather was amazing this year as well, although rather too hot for our planned trek from Lulworth back to the campsite on the coastal path. We had to do the walk in stages, with frequent swimming stops to cool off. There is a quiet beach, albeit pebbly, a reasonably short (but hilly) walk east of the campsite. Well worth the effort though … Kimmeridge to the east of Lulworth is also a great place to drive to. It has smooth, safe ledges reaching out into the sea which are covered at high tide and are fun to walk out on with your dog.

Here’s the link for the campsite ( it was our 5th visit there !) -:

I hope you like my images of the coastline and Rusty enjoying himself – I hope they tempt you to visit this special part of England ..?! ( You must promise not to tell those ‘dogless people’ about it though !)
