Dark skies, two fishing lakes and 18 acres of woodland and an area of special scientific interest make this Dorset park a haven for wildlife, as well as adult humans and their dogs (on leads). The emphasis on this adults-only park is tranquility.
Owners Martin and Victoria Bowrey take their conservation seriously, one of their projects during lockdown was to clear the streams that feed the lakes of overgrown vegetation to give better access for wildlife. Work hasn’t stopped there: they have added four large hardstanding pitches and 15 hardstanding pitches and created 10 new camping pitches. They’ve also added reinforced matting to a number of the grass pitches to make them all-weather, making 21 in total. Bringing cheer to summer evenings is the new pop-up outside bar – Monty’s Bar – next to the reception area.
Takeaway vans keep the food options interesting during high season, with Thursday the only day you will have to cook in your van or venture beyond the park.
Covid-19 measures include the erection of screens in the shop, hand sanitisers at all water stations and in shower blocks, a fogging machine to sanitise shower blocks and glamping units and the implementation of an even stricter cleaning regime.
