Easter Holidays in Dorset

Easter is one of the best times of year to enjoy a getaway at Ulwell Holiday Park in Swanage. As spring takes hold and the flowers begin to bloom, the park comes alive with the sound of laughter as families head to Dorset for a much-needed break. Our park is ideally located for enjoying the coast and countryside during a caravan or camping holiday. There’s a wide range of things to see and do in Swanage and the wider Dorset area, including Easter activities and events.

One of the best things about Easter is spending quality time as a family. With the children out of school, there’s plenty of time to explore new places and try new activities together. We think a coastal camping break is the perfect choice at this time of year. What could possibly be better than days spent at the beach make happy memories together?

Easter camping and caravan holiday

Whether you plan on visiting our Dorset camping and caravan site for the Easter bank holiday weekend or for an entire week, we have a range of fantastic accommodation options to choose from. If you’re bringing your own caravan or motorhome you can enjoy our well-spaced touring pitches, some fully-serviced, with views over the Purbeck hills. All our camping pitches are spacious and level with electric hook up for your convenience. We also have a wooden glamping pod available to hire if you’d like to experience the adventure of camping without having to put up a tent!

Ulwell Holiday Park facilities

Park guests have full use of our on-site facilities, which include the Village Inn Bar and restaurant, shop and children’s play area. The indoor swimming pool is a big hit with families and is a great way to keep the kids entertained if the rain makes an unwelcome appearance!

In recent years however, the weather has been unseasonably warm, enabling families to explore the best of the Jurassic Coast during their stay. From the park there are a number of scenic walks and Swanage beach and town centre are just a short walk away. We’ve also got a number of world class attractions on our doorstep, including the Tank Museum and Monkey World.

What our guests say

  • A gem of a place

    Sandra, Winchester

    What a find. I almost don’t want to tell you about it.

    It’s a family park with lovely, mostly new, fresh, clean spacious caravans – all set out almost in steps on the side of a small hill. The larger hill rises behind you, the sea spreads out in front and the swimming pool beckons behind the bar.

    The people are friendly, the site is clean and welcoming and the scenery unbeatable. It’s a gem of a place.

  • Always my no.1 choice when visiting Swanage


    Always my no.1 choice when visiting Swanage. A truly wonderful location, lying under the stunning Ballard Down and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Being only a 10 min walk from Swanage and the coast means it’s conveniently located for all amenities.

    The staff are always very helpful to sort out any problems and keep the site in fantastic condition. A 5-star park.

  • Friendly, clean & well kept

    Cheshire, UK

    Stayed here as a base to tour Isle of Purbeck and go on to Air show in Bournemouth. Not the cheapest site but definitely the cleanest and well thought out.

    Swimming pool , shop and pub/restaurant all in proximity and well kept/stocked. Bus stop right outside entrance. Grass pitches have plenty of space and well drained with shower blocks water/ drain points really handy.

    Will definitely be using this site again.

  • Lovely weekend

    Tina, London

    We have just returned from a lovely weekend caravanning at Ulwell Cottage Caravan Park.
    Lovely clean site with indoor heated pool. We went in the pool around 5pm and were the only ones in there (apart from life guard) it was lovely and warm and clean.

    We walked to old Harry’s rock and then Down into Swanage itself and had fish and chips and an ice cream.
    Staff on the site were helpful and friendly. Lovely stay.

  • Our second, lovely Christmas at Ulwell

    Jane P, Cheltenham

    After the success of Christmas 2016 at Ulwell, we returned again for Christmas 2017 and had another great time. Lovely warm caravan, peaceful and relaxing on site and a fantastic carvery on Boxing Day at The Village Inn.

    Thanks to all staff who were working and made sure we had such a great break away.
