Does anyone know please if I'm going to West Bay from the M25/M3, where might be a good place or places to stop, visit, stretch our legs, while away the hours, have lunch etc please?
We can't get into our caravan until 4pm so we're not in any rush to get to West Bay.

Also, any ideas of places to go while we are there as the weather for saturday and sunday looks like it wont be beach weather (although I'm sure the DCs will have their wet suits on and be crabbing for some of it).

So angry at myself for mislaying Dorset brochure. I'd marked all sorts of interesting things.

Not sure which weather forecast you are looking at but weekedn weather is looking good. Dorchester show is on this weekend which is the county show, lots of things to see and do.

oh, good news, thanks very much. I was looking at the BBC website.
My geography is pants! As I'm looking at the map of Dorset, West Bay is on the coast at the left. Where is Dorchester please?

Abbotsbury is always nice, Swannery, CHildren's farm and the gardens.

Centreish of Dorset, East of West bay, just north of Weymouth.
