Proud to be a dog friendly campsite in Dorset

We’ve been welcoming dogs onto the park for many years and are proud to be a dog friendly campsite in Dorset. Going camping with your dog is one of life’s little pleasures, for them a trip to a new camping ground enables them to enjoy new experiences and meet new people and other dogs.

Dorset is great for dogs

With so many dog friendly areas surrounding us there is no shortage of places you can take your four legged friends. The beautiful Dorset countryside is covered with some of the best dog walks in the country. There are some amazing coastal walks and wooded valleys to explore right on our door step, just come and ask us and we’ll provide you with lots of options. We keep a comprehensive folder in our information centre for local dog friendly walks. On our reception counter we even have dog biscuits to keep your four legged friends happy!

Happy Campers ツ

If I could give this more stars I would. We have been coming for quite a few years now. This is the 1st with a dog. My goodness there is a field especially for the dog walking superbly ample in size for dogs to have a good run. They even supplied poop bags on the gate to get in. Staff so friendly and super accommodating (as always) showers and site extremely clean. Large pitch sizes. Will we come back absolutely.

A 5 star rated park worthy of this rating. We left today after a fortnight with weather going from gales and rain to temperatures approaching 30deg. The site became full and unfortunately we couldn’t extend our stay. Brilliant facilities. Plenty of space for the dogs to exercise and nice to see staff there who we first saw in 2008. This was our 5th visit which says it all really.

Keith, June 2017

Here on a super pitch ( big enough for an emperor canvas tent, a large saloon car and a 110 defender. We have five small-ish kids and a black lab. The campsite is perfect for all. The dog especially is having the best holiday and the ‘off the lead’ park is a real social hotspot.

Local attractions keep you busy every day and it’s all at a decent price (especially if you have a national trust membership). The staff here are friendly and helpful and it really is a family friendly space.

Would highly recommend and will be returning.
