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 lovely quiet site

    Andy Blackwell

    A lovely quiet site, nice warm amenities with good sized shower cubicles, shop not open yet as it’s too early but the local pub is ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you’re reasonably fit you can walk into Swanage but the bus service is great so why would you want to. Overall a very nice break, we will be back.

  • Super swimming pool

  • Easter break


    We have just returned after a brilliant Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything at all and we didn’t want to leave. We didn’t visit the pub but the shop is stocked with local produce and essentials. The facilities are great and the location convenient. Our van was spotless and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back
