Welcome to Gorselands Caravan Park 

Here in the heart of some of the most beautiful land and seascapes that Dorset has to offer lies our independent caravan park. Situated in six luscious acres, on the seaward side of the Bridport to Weymouth road, it overlooks the famous Chesil beach, an undeniably popular attraction for many a visitor, both far and wide. Along with Chesil beach, there is of course the renowned World Heritage Jurassic Coast that featured in hit television series Broadchurch.

Gorselands Caravan Park

You’ll find Gorselands set in the valley, providing guests to our coastal holidays in Chesil beach’s area with superb panoramic views of the beach and Lyme Bay, which really are something magical!

One of the perks of staying with us here at Gorselands is that the road passes our location and heads quite literally on to the beach at West Bexington – a part of the famous Jurassic Coast. Alternatively, you can opt for another scenic option and stroll down through the meadows along Fisherman's Walk.

Gorselands has a wide range of dog friendly accommodation and whats more dogs are free of charge

If it’s a quiet and picturesque setting you’re looking for, then Gorselands is just the place. Uniquely situated and providing a peaceful haven even at the peak of the holiday season, our holiday park in Dorset is ideal for those who appreciate a quiet, relaxing holiday. Additionally, if you fancy heading to the local attractions, we’re never too far away, so a stay at Gorselands really does have the whole package!

We are delighted to say that we have been given the go ahead to reopen the caravan park on Saturday 4th July 2020.

As you can imagine, there are lots of holiday bookings that did not go ahead during to the lockdown.  Once we have made contact with all of those customers we will then be in a position to take new bookings.  If you have already made a holiday enquiry, we will get to you as soon as we can but if not, please wait for the on line booking to become available.  Please do not email as we will not be able to deal with your enquiry at this time. This page will be updated when the booking pages go live again.  Thank you for your consideration in this matter.  We are working as quickly as we can.


24 May 2020

Due to the government advice, we sadly remain closed until at least Friday 3rd July 2020.  However, this date may be extended by government and we may have to have a phased opening.

Our customers with bookings for holidays that arrive before 4th July have been contacted and bookings amended.

If you have a booking with us arriving from 4th July onwards there is no need to do anything at present unless you wish to postpone your holiday.  Skeleton staff are working from home but can be contacted by email info@gorselands.co.uk  if you would prefer to move your booking.  We realise that many of our customers will be “shielding” and may not feel comfortable coming on holiday this year, therefore we are happy to move bookings to 2021 if that suits you better.

We thank you for the support our customers have shown during this unprecedented time. We look forward to being able to re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. We are not currently taking new bookings for the rest of 2020 until we know for certain our opening date.   

In the meantime, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you as soon as we can.

For guests wishing to cancel their booking, our regular conditions of booking cancellation policy still applies. The balance for all holidays is due 28 days prior to your arrival date and if this remains unpaid by the due date and you have not requested to amend your dates, then the booking will be deemed cancelled and deposit will be forfeited.
