Burnbake Camping Site, Dorset
The vibe: Full-on family escapades.
Highlights: This is the camp for those with children who enjoy fresh-air and mud. It sits snugly in a forest, beside a stream. Bring your bikes for family jaunts on the many cycle paths; likewise, buckets and spades for the nearby Blue Flag beaches in Swanage and Studland. The South-West coast path is close, as is beautiful Corfe Castle.
