At the heart of the Jurassic Coast, this almost circular shingle bay is nestled below dramatic cliffs and backed by a tiny village of fisherman’s houses. Within a few miles of the cove there are heaps of great campsites – though only the very best make the Hipcamp cut. The question is, which of these fantastic Lulworth campsites will you choose?

Best camping, glamping, and outdoor stays in Lulworth Cove guide

Overview

Camping and glamping in Lulworth Cove

Choose camping or glamping in Lulworth Cove and you’ll have the best of the Jurassic Coast just a flip-flop away. If you’re heading to Dorset for fossil hunting, coastal walking or seaside fun, Lulworth is a great base. In the middle of Dorset’s 95-mile UNESCO-protected coastline, it’s geologically fascinating and even without an expert eye, it’s an idyllic spot. Boats bob in the clear water of the natural harbour with its white pebble beach and surroundings of green hills and crumbling cliffs. Head west up and over the hill and you reach the familiar landmark of Durdle Door, a limestone arch, over the sea. There are plenty of camping and glamping sites in this part of Dorset and the Hipcamp team have selected the best to feature here. The range includes everything from basic campsites, where the location is the star attraction, to fancy glamping sites where the luxurious accommodation is almost as tempting as the destination. Whether you want a place to pitch your own tent, a pre-pitched bell tent, yurt, tipi or something more luxurious, there’ll be something in our Lulworth Cove campsite collection to suit you.

Things to do in Lulworth Cove

Swim, snorkel, kayak, cruise or simply gaze at the clear blue waters of Lulworth Cove. The coast is, of course, the main event here and there’s coasteering and snorkelling for the more adventurous, rockpooling and fossil-hunting for the curious. Just west of Lulworth Cove is Stair Hole. You don’t need to be a geologist to notice the interesting rock formations here; caves, blow holes, tunnels and the layered rocks of the brilliantly-named Lulworth Crumple are visible for all to see. The South West Coast Path, a 630-mile national trail which traces round Dorset, Devon Cornwall and Somerset, provides well-signposted walking on the coast here. It’s a short but steep walk west to reach Durdle Door and its crescent-shaped shingle beach. Both Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are on a five-mile stretch of coast that’s in the ownership of the Lulworth Estate and you can visit the estate’s other big attraction, Lulworth Castle, a few miles inland during a stay here too. Perhaps more recognisable and still within reach is Corfe Castle.

Other things to do during a camping or Glamping Holiday in Lulworth Cove involve exploring further afield in Dorset. Lulworth is well placed, between Weymouth and Swanage, if you have plans to see the sights: the National Trust-managed Hardy’s Cottage – birthplace of the author Thomas Hardy, Monkey World Ape Sanctuary and the Bovington Tank Museum to name a few. For more information on things to do in and around Lulworth Cove, take a look at the Visit Dorset website.
