OUR FAVOURITE AND UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT THIS PARK
∗ Located on the Jurassic coast and within walking distance of Charmouth’s fossil rich beach. The heritage centre down on the beach is not to be missed and gives you lots of tips to find the famous fossils.
∗ Adjoining the park is Stonebarrow Lane, when you reach the top you will find acres of National Trust land, many fascinating coastal walks and even a geocache if your eyes are sharp enough.
∗ Just down the road in Axminster there are an array of fantastic eateries, including Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall’s famous River Cottage Canteen.
∗ The historic town of Lyme Regis is laced with quirky shops and has a real old fashioned seaside town feel, aquarium and popular Hix’s Restaurant. You can see why Jane Austin loved it so much.
∗ Beer is a beautiful old sleepy fishing village, with some fascinating old quarry caves, beautiful gardens of pecorama and even wooden boat hire from the beach.
∗ The Donkey Sanctuary is a free attraction not to be missed and is located along the coast road towards Sidmouth.
∗ The typical thatched village of Abbotsbury plays host to the amazing Subtropical Gardens, Swannery and Tithe Barn children’s farm, which are all well worth a visit especially if you make the swannery for 12 or 4pm when they feed the hundreds of swans which fly in for the feeding frenzy.
∗ If you are after more of an active holiday you can try one of the many Marshwood trails by foot or electric bike. Alternatively continue along the coast road to Weymouth & Portland home to the Olympic sailing events in 2012, where you can book a rock climbing, kite surfing or sailing lesson and follow in Ben Ainsleys footsteps.
