Ringstead Bay – Another Dorset Beach

A few weeks back on a windy Saturday afternoon we went to Ringstead Bay. It was one of the beaches in the National Trust book and another Dorset beach to go and visit.


Ringstead Bay is a pebble beach which I’m not normally the biggest fan of  as we are so used to sandy beaches but it made a nice change. Hearing the pebbles rush in and out with the waves is such a relaxing sound. I was absolutely stunned as we walked round the corner from the car park the views are amazing.


The beach you arrive on is fully pebbled which gave Amelia a chance to have serious choice over what stones she collected and the next beach down is mostly shingles and sand with the views of the white chalk cliffs of White Nothe which we wanted to walk to but it was a little far for Amelia so that’s definitely something for another day!


Amelia Ringstead Bay

It was super windy so we were able to get Amelia’s kite flying with no problems and let her have a go at flying it which she loved! I would definitely recommend getting a little kite this was off eBay and was under £10 it’s fab for days like this and just with an extra piece of string tied on it Amelia can hold onto it safely and I can hold it at the same time so it doesn’t fly off!



This was a real hidden gem and I’m so pleased we went to find it. It’s somewhere my parents hadn’t been before after years of living down here so I was really happy to take them to a new place, especially somewhere as stunning as Ringstead Bay.


I’m still really hoping to visit every beach in Dorset. Last year I challenged us to do it during the Summer but it was a bit unprepared and slightly ambitious. I think now we’ve got our National Trust Membership and Amelia’s that bit older it’s a bit more likely to happen.


So hopefully you’ll be seeing even more beach spam (as if I don’t do it enough) and to share some more of Dorset’s beaches with you, a blessed part of the country to live in!


Thanks for reading!xx

    Those photographs are stunning. And I adore the beach so I love seeing lots of beach spam. I wish I lived nearer the seaside. It looks like you had a fabulous day and Amelia looks so happy with her kite. I really must get one for Little Miss H. Plus, Amelia is definitely the cutest and coolest toddler on the block in that hat, coat and wellies. Adorable! Hugs Lucy xxxx

    Such gorgeous photos!!! It looks like you had a fantastic day, such a good idea to bring a kite with you as well, running around after it will certainly keep you warm on a cold day at the beach!

    This looks like a gorgeous beach, the kite flying is such a good activity- one to pop on our list. Amelia is looking so grown up these days, I love her pom pom hat too xx

    Gorgeous photos. It looks like you had the whole beach to yourself! Ah, I have never thought about buying a kite for my two year old because he’s so young but you look like you’ve had so much fun, I’ll have to give it a go! Would love you to link up to #MyFavouriteTrip Polly x

    Wow, that’s a lovely beach! I’ve never been to a pebbled beach before. I think my kids would love collecting the pebbles though. They love rocks! You have some really beautiful photos that really capture the serenity and beauty of the beach. #WhatevertheWeather

    I grew up by the beach so these pics really get me feeling nostalgic. Gorgeous pics! X

    Dorset is so beautiful. I live in Lyme Regis for a year and explored some of the beaches near there. They really are so beautiful. Such a great idea to take a kite too! We really need to do this more often. Thank you for sharing your adventure with #whatevertheweather xx

    It looks gorgeous! I love pebbley beaches, it’s so relaxing watching the stones rolling in and out with the waves. Brilliant for finding sea glass on too. Great tip about adding a length of string onto the kite, we will have to do that with ours, our boys like to be independent and do it themselves, but would be so upset if it flew off in the wind! You’ve made me want to visit a beach again, we have my parents car for 2 weeks, so we may need to make a trip out to one! Thanks so much for linking up your beach adventures with #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x
