Set in the heart of the rural Blackmore Vale this natural and peaceful site is relaxed and pleasant. Over 70 stunning acres. Ideally situated as a short stopover being just a couple of minutes from the A30, midway between Sherborne & Shaftesbury and right on the border of Dorset and Somerset. It is an ideal place to stay as a base to tour the local area. We are open for 12 months, 365 days a year. Seasonal touring pitches available.
Numerous places of interest are only about 1 hour away e.g. Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Dorchester, Salisbury, Glastonbury and Street to name but a few, together with all our small local towns many of which still have market days.
Here on site it can be quite quiet out of season but that should not detract from what the area has to offer. We have 4 interesting lakes/large ponds on site all containing a variety of fish. Only one lake is suitable for carp/pleasure fishing. Our amenity lake contains lots of pretty ornamental fish and is home to a variety of wildfowl. Over the last few years no less than 52 different species of birds have been counted on these premises.
Our clubhouse is comfortable and contains a well-stocked bar and restaurant for breakfasts & lunches. When you stay with us we like to meet and get to know you. You are most welcome to come in and join in with our local customers. We have a raised sundeck area to watch the world go by and the cooler and sometimes shady beer garden to relax in also. We try not to have too many rules & regulations and feel that we have plenty of camping space for everyone.
Although it is essentially a touring site, quite a number of people have returned again and again, some as many as five or six times. We and all our staff extend a friendly welcome to everyone and do our best to make your stay a pleasant one. We try to keep our camping costs at a sensible level but in order to do that we would encourage you to use the bar during your stay.
