A DORSET campsite was in the top 10 best-selling campsites across the UK for 2020, a holiday booking company has revealed, as Dorset saw bookings up over 50% last year.
Osmington Mills Corner campsite was ranked ninth best-selling campsite in the UK for 2020 on online camping and holiday booking company pitchup.com
