Family and dog-friendly camping park within strolling distance of the Dorset village of Cerne Abbas

Nestled in the heart of the Dorset countryside, just a short stroll from one of Britain’s ‘most desirable villages,’ Giants Head Caravan & Camping Park is a lovely family and dog-friendly site. Located six miles from Dorchester and just minutes away from the magnificent Jurassic Coast, Giants Head is an ideal base for exploring Dorset.
Nature-lovers will delight in the camping park, which is in the heart of An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and features lovely coastal and country walks that start at the site. The breath-taking Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site is also a short walk away and high above is the 180-foot high figure of the world famous ‘Rude Man’, the Cerne Abbas Giant.

Spread across three-and-a-half-acres, the well-maintained camping park features 50 spacious grassy pitches for touring caravans, tents and motorvans with spectacular views over the Dorset countryside. Surrounded by mature trees and hedgerows, terraced sites are well-drained with electric hook-up points.
On-site amenities include free hot showers and hand basins, as well as washing up and laundry facilities. The dog-friendly campsite has a separate area set aside for campers with dogs with fantastic walking trails along the Wessex Ridgeway.
The campsite does not have a shop, but there are several great places to eat within walking distance, including three pubs, a lovely tea room and a well-stocked shop in the scenic village of Cerne Abbas.
