Touring and motorhome holidays in DorsetCaravan site in Swanage

Motorhomes and Touring Caravans

Ulwell Holiday Park is one of the best caravan sites for a touring caravan or motorhome holiday in Dorset. Pitch up in the grounds of our family friendly holiday park and enjoy splendid views over the rolling Purbeck hills and surrounding farmland. Our excellent location provides customers with the best of both worlds – easy access to the beautiful Dorset countryside and the Jurassic Coast. Swanage beach and town centre are just a short walk away and popular beauty spots such as Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Poole harbour can be reached by car.

Touring caravan pitches

We have a range of motorhome and caravan pitch types available at Ulwell Holiday Park, with plenty of options to meet our guests needs. All of our pitches accommodate a maximum of 6 people and 1 towing vehicle. Our grass touring pitches are an excellent option for visitors needing only the basics during their time at our Swanage caravan site. Each of our grass pitches have 10-amp electric hook up, which ensures you can readily charge electronic equipment for entertainment during your stay.

If you prefer a hard-standing pitch, we have two options available. Choose between our gravel pitches with electric hook up or our fully serviced hard standing pitches, which boast electric hook up, water and drainage.

Ulwell Holiday Park’s spacious touring pitches provide plenty of room to relax and make the most of the great outdoors. Set up a table and dine al fresco or simply relax in your camping chair, read a good book and watch the world go by!

All of the touring pitches at our caravan site are dog friendly, so you can enjoy a dog friendly break in Swanage with your four-legged friend. Explore scenic public footpaths from the park to Studland or Corfe Village as well as a number of dog friendly beaches across Dorset.

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.
