VW Campervan Hire for Dorset
At VW Kamperhire we are based along the Jurassic coastline, just outside Sidmouth in Devon, only 10 minutes from Junction 30 of the M5, within 10 minutes of the A30 and Exeter Airport. You can also get to us from two different railway operators – Great Western Trains or South West Trains.
The Jurassic Coast
From Sidmouth you can travel through East Devon (an designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) dropping in to places like Branscombe, Seaton, Axmouth before taking the A3052 into Lyme Regis. From here head towards Charmouth beach and then to Bridport where you take the B3157 for the west dorset heritage coast.
West Bay will be a potential first stop before West Bexington and Chesil Beach. Follow to the end of the B3157 and you will arrive in Weymouth (the harbour is pictured below) although you might decide to take a slight detour to the Isle of Portland. Both were extensively used for the Olympics in 2012, where all the sea events were hosted and Ben Ainslie won the last of his gold medals.
From Weymouth continue along the coastal roads past Preston and head towards the famous Durdle Door and then onto Lulworth Castle. Lulworth Castle turns into a family festival in July when its the home of Camp Bestival.
Keep driving East and you will be at Swanage part of the Purbeck Heritage Coast. From here you can drive to the Studland & Godlingston Heath National Nature reserve before heading back in-land to Wareham and then onto Poole and the very expensive are of Sandbanks.
