Things to do in West Dorset this Winter - November 4th, 2011

It’s certainly a lot quieter and less hectic here in the winter, but there’s still really never a dull moment. Tomorrow is fireworks night, which is always great fun in Lyme Regis, and this year Charmouth will be putting on its own bonfire night for the first time in 27 years, so we’re really spoiled for choice!

If you’re staying at our Dorset holiday park this weekend and manage to take any good photos of firework night, send them over to us and we’ll post them here on the blog. Meanwhile, here are some of the other great activities and events coming up in Dorset as we approach the Christmas period…

River Cottage

River Cottage has a fantastic series of events coming up in the next few weeks. Their next four day cookery course starts on 28th November and includes a day each on cooking meat, fish, bread and vegetables. It’s a hands-on course with expert tutoring, and you can expect Hugh to pop by himself at some point to lend a hand.

In December there’s also a special Christmas baking course, so you can learn how to make the most delicious mince pies and Christmas puddings, along with more original treats like chestnut meringues, just in time for the Christmas season!

Fossil Hunting in Dorset

You can go fossil hunting at any time of the year, but winter is the best time to do it. The cliffs around Lyme Regis take a battering from the elements at this time of year, and this exposes new fossils buried in the rock and disperses them on the beach.

Our Lyme Regis campsite is perfectly located for a fossil hunting holiday in Dorset, and if you give us a call on 01297 560259, there’s still time to book before the end of the year!

Newlands Parties

It’s a packed final month for us here at Newlands. The fun starts on the 12th with our own end of season party. It’s Las Vegas themed, with gaming tables, prizes and live music. The following week is the end of year party from our friends at the Lyme Regis Gig Club. Read our previous blog for all the details on both events
