Caravan parks are generally located in fairly secluded areas where the sky at night is even darker and clearer than many other locations. Very little equipment is needed for what will probably one of the most memorable adventures of your holiday, but it is wise to plan ahead.

Tell someone

Sit back and relax as the night-time temperatures can get chilly even in the summer in Dorset. Caravan parks are wonderful locations for stargazing in case the chill sets in and you need to quickly head back to the warmth of your holiday home.

The Best Seats in the House

There are no

Kingcombe Meadows and Powerstock Common
Located in the beautiful hills and vales of west Dorset, it is generally agreed that this area is the darkest at night. The stars will be clearer and brighter, and the view may only be interrupted by a few bats swooping around.

Tout Quarry
Tout quarry, in Portland offers expansive views over the sea heading towards Chesil Beach. Viewing where the sky meets the sea at night is a truly spectacular experience.

Upton Heath
Although this is considered a somewhat urban setting the stargazing opportunities are still good. The peaceful area is also a great place to spot nocturnal wildlife.

Fontmell Down
Head to the top of the reserve and your efforts will be rewarded. Expansive panoramic views of the never-ending skyscape will take your breath away, and you can even see the Milkyway during the summer months.

Show of a Lifetime

There are many exciting and active things to do while on holiday in Dorset. Caravan parks are specially located to allow easy access to beaches and to fast-paced adventures. However, while visiting the coast taking the time to slow down and take in the stars is a must. Time will mean nothing as you lie back and try to absorb the enormity of all that you can see in the darkest part of the night. Be sure to make the most of these beautiful star-drenched skies as the experience will be like no other.
