Jurassic coast – Dorset

So July 2013, Westbay in Dorset it was a scorching weekend. We both came here having never seen or heard of the BBC series Broadchurch but since writing this post we’ve watched the series while both excitedly pointing & shouting at the TV “We’ve been to that ice cream shop” or “I remember that place”. Yeah we’re living life on the edge people.

Anywho I can heartily recommend Highland End Holiday park as a place to camp. It’s right on the top of some cliffs so if you have lovely views around you of the Jurassic coast line (although it does get a bit windy up top <insert terrible baked bean joke here>).

So I don’t mind roughing it up every now and again – however Leigh not so much. So when we go camping we add electricity for the essentials such as hair straighteners (everyone does that right?).

Lovely 6 mile walk (we didn’t realise it was so far) from the camp site to Bridport along the South West coast past with a pub break and a great view. I ended up with a burnt forehead as usual.

The main little town of Westbay is only a mile or so away along the cliff paths – I can recommend Rachel’s for lunch or dinner. It’s just a little hut with a small amount of seating within Westbay Harbour but the food is lovely and fresh. It get very busy probably because it’s listed as the number 1 restaurant in Westbay so you might have to wait for a seat although it’s worth it (they do take away too!).
