Picture it: you’re walking hand in hand with your special someone, soaking up the beauty of the coastline that stretches out in front of you. As you listen to waves lapping against the sand and as a gentle wind caresses your face, there’s truly no place you and your partner would rather be – although you’re already looking forward to cuddling up in front of a crackling fire in the evening. Now, if you think that this all sounds too good to be true, think again: on couples’ caravan holidays in Dorset, you’ll be able to enjoy quality time with your other half like never before. Although you can’t go wrong with any of Dorset’s impressive range of attractions and activities, here are the best five for an utterly romantic and relaxing couple’s retreat.

Hot Date, Hot Air Balloon

Toasting to your holiday with a bottle of champagne may sound pretty standard, but doing so in a hot air balloon certainly doesn’t. Go above and beyond your previous dates – literally and figuratively – and soar through the clouds with a glass of bubbly in hand. What better way to celebrate your getaway with your special someone?

A Stunning Sunset

Romantic caravan holidays in Dorset wouldn’t be complete without enjoying a jaw-droppingly beautiful sunset together. While you’ll be wowed by this spectacle no matter where you choose to watch it, one location stands head and shoulders above the rest: Hambledon Hill, a fort that dates back to the Iron Age and that’s known for its population of rare butterflies and wildflowers today. Why not take in the lovely scenery over a picnic?

A Garden Stroll

If you or your partner’s got a green thumb, immerse yourself in botanic beauty at the Athelhampton House, an imposing manor from the fifteenth century. This architectural marvel is an off-the-beaten-track gem that’s situated just outside of Dorset, and boasts pristine gardens that are interspersed with a canal, pond and a river. As you take a serene stroll through the grounds, you’ll start to feel like you and your partner are the only two people in the world. Don’t get carried away and pick the roses, though!

Fine Wining and Dining

Want to play it safe? Opt for a classic dinner date. If you’re dreaming of a candle-lit dining experience with exquisite food and wine, Dorset won’t let you down – in fact, each quaint restaurant will be more tempting than the last. For the ultimate chic date, head to Al Molo, an Italian restaurant with gorgeous views of the Weymouth Esplanade, or to Arbor Restaurant, whose seasonal menu makes use of local ingredients and has earned it two AA Rosette Awards. Oh, and why not finish off the night by enjoying a film together at the 1920s-themed Rex Cinema?

Snuggle Up in Your Caravan

Caravan holidays in Dorset aren’t just ideal for nature lovers and gastronomic enthusiasts – they’re also perfect getaways for those in search of a cosy and relaxing weekend in a luxurious accommodation. From downy-soft beds to terraces with picturesque views, there’s often nothing better than popping open a bottle of wine and soaking up the homey ambiance that’s offered by caravan holidays. In Dorset, you’ll find that the relaxation and romance never end – especially if you make the most of your stay with these top tips.
