Welcome to Dorsetmums - A families guide to life in Dorset
Dorset is such a wonderful place to raise a family. We have long sandy beaches and wonderous woodland walks, bustling towns and quaint villages, award winning attractions and plenty of family friendly events.
Dorsetmums aims to list all the great places to go, children's classes, half term and seasonal events, useful contacts, family family campsites, pubs with play areas and much much more!
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, some attractions, places to go and children's classes are not yet open and running. Please contact an attraction before visiting to check if they are open or if they require pre-booking and support our family friendly businesses if you can.
Visiting a Pumpkin Patch has become very popular and children of all ages will enjoy going out into the fields to pick their favourite to carve at home. Some farms will have sledges to take into the fields and some will have additional activities including arts and crafts.
FIREWORKS DISPLAYS IN DORSET
There's plenty of Fireworks Displays going on across Dorset, some with a whole host of entertainment and impressive displays and others which are more family focused with earlier display times so the little one's won't be late for bed.
Dorset has a huge choice of small Soft Plays and Play Cafes which are perfect for babies up to pre schoolers plus there's large venues with muti-level play areas, steep slides and obstacles providing hours of fun for the bigger kids.
