There’s something quite special about Spring on the Jurassic Coast. Stretching from East Devon to Dorset, the days are becoming longer, we start to shake off the chill and embrace the great outdoors again. And the Jurassic Coast is arguably one of the best places to do so.

You can enjoy the lesser crowds and spend longer days exploring, whilst still returning to your glampsite at the end of the day to watch the sunset, star gaze and get ready to do it all again tomorrow.

So, what’s the best things to do on the Jurassic Coast in Spring?

It is renowned for its gorgeous walks, perhaps looking their best in the springtime. Spot the flowers in bloom along the coast path, enjoy a stroll in daylight past 4pm and feel the warmth of the sunshine as the promise of Summer begins.

Go on a guided fossil hunting tour in Lyme Regis and head to Charmouth beach for some more fossil hunting.

There’s also plenty of towns, villages and natural landmarks to explore during your Jurassic Coast glamping trip: Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, West Bay, Exmouth, Sidmouth and Beer.

Watersports are another great adventure in the spring. You may not feel ready to jump into the sea this time of year, but for the brave amongst us, you can enjoy coasteering lessons, and there’s evening cruises for those who like to stay warm and dry.

And if you’re looking to stay somewhere a little different? The charming Chalet on the Beach is a great base for a spring adventure. Set in Lyme Regis, you’re perfectly placed for enjoying those front row sea views. Go for a paddle and enjoy the incredible scenery! And when you’re ready to leave our haven, you have plenty to see and do nearby on the coast.

Another great choice is Stargazy Sky Shepherd’s Hut, just a few miles away from Lyme Regis. This gorgeous hut sleeps two, sitting in its own tranquil meadow off the beaten track.

With a comfy double bed, an en-suite shower room and a kitchen area, it has everything you need for a weekend break, making it a wonderful base for your Jurassic Coast adventures.
