Escape to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the site includes part of the World Heritage Coastline, famous for its scenic beauty. The site itself is an open, partially sloping field surrounded by farmland with great views to the sea and Clavell Tower on one side and the Purbeck Hills on the other. Kimmeridge Bay, which is also part of the Smedmore Estate, is famous for fossils, fascinating geological strata and ecologically diverse rock pools. The site has 40 grass/hardstanding pitches (some seasonal) all with electric hook-up. Please note this site does not have a toilet block.
Smedmore is a Member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club Affiliated Site Scheme, but non-members are also very welcome.
Smedmore site gives you easy access to fun water sport activities - there is windsurfing and diving on the ledges and a slipway for boats alongside the Dorset Wildlife Trust's fine marine centre. Many people stay at the site for its walking opportunities since the unforgettable Dorset Coastal Path starts nearby. For the avid explorer there is the wartime abandoned village of Tyneham, located on Ministry of Defence land (limited opening times). The distant tank fire that can be heard on the ranges during a north westerly wind is virtually the only intrusion to this otherwise peaceful oasis.
