A site that prides itself on its environmental work, Back of Beyond has been recognised by a David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award.

Set in 30 acres of Dorset countryside that includes woods, heathland, lakes and a river, the site provides natural habitats for wildlife – and its guests. The area around the lakes has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and you can expect to see plenty of wildlife here, including dragonflies, birds and fish.

With the touring, camping and glamping areas taking up just a small part of the park, there’s lots of space to roam and enjoy the peace and quiet, as well as the results of the conservation work on this tranquil site.

You get a choice of pitches and a glamping village with a variety of accommodation, including a yurt and a shepherd’s hut.

The two lakes can be fished, although you might have some competition from the resident otters!

Other activities include pitch and putt and boules.

“It’s quiet and set in acres of beautiful woodland. Lovely to just unwind but close enough to the coast and other attractions for a day out.”
