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.
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.
Looking after our childs mental health and well-being in these difficult times is jus as important as school work. Below is a lit of fantastic resources, some are from Dorset based organisations and others can be found on Apps and You Tube.
