We are the ideal base if you envisage spending time exploring the 95 miles of Jurassic coastline, located centrally between Exmouth and Swanage near to Charmouth. With Charmouth’s beach being one of the very best places in the world to find fossils and prehistoric remains, rocks ranging from 100 to 195 million years old can be found here!
The historic town of Lyme Regis, known as ‘The Pearl of Dorset’ is just a few miles to the west with West Bay and Bridport to the east.

Having grown up as an amateur fossil hunter enthused by a local palaeontologist, the phenomenal geology of our Jurassic Coastline still fascinates returning guests & I to this day. The Jurassic Coast has been advantageous to the business here at Newlands from day one nearly 20 years ago. We are extremely excited to be a Jurassic Coast Business Partner. – Natalie, Newlands Holiday Park.
