Gorselands Caravan Park
This select park of six acres situated on the seaward side of the Bridport to Weymouth road overlooks the famous Chesil Beach, one of the most beautiful parts of the Dorset coast. It is set in a lovely valley with panoramic views of the beach and Lyme Bay. The road past Gorselands goes literally on to the beach at West Bexington where there is a large car park and cafe. Alternatively you can walk through the meadows down Fisherman's Walk. Chesil Beach offers excellent beach fishing or you can join the coastal footpath towards either Abbotsbury or Burton Bradstock and enjoy the splendid views of the beautiful coastline.
Gorselands has a well-stocked shop which is open daily. It can supply most of your needs including fresh milk, papers, frozen foods, and all groceries and provisions. There are many excellent pubs and inns in the locality - amongst them, the Bull Inn, 100 yards along the road from the park, where the food is good and children are welcome; the Manor Hotel at West Bexington, an ideal stop after your walk through the fields to the beach; and the Crown at Puncknowle (locally pronounced 'Punnel'), another good stop when taking a walk inland. All have a very good choice of meals from bar snacks to gourmet food.
Burton Bradstock, Abbotsbury and West Bay also have attractive places to eat if you feel like going farther afield. For a day out why not visit Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Yeovil, or Bournemouth? All of which have good shopping facilities and are interesting places to see.
