A real little gem!

Kitwhistle Barn
This is probably one of my favourite CLs - flat and pretty, wildflowers all around us in the hedgerows. An equally attractive dog walk up a gentle slope behind the site and looking down upon it. Bins etc close by but out of view behind a hedge. It is peaceful, whilst also being conducive to friendly chats with fellow Club members Kim, the owner, is around regularly - taking the rubbish away, chatting with us all, sharing her valuable local knowledge. Grass is kept well mown with clippings taken away. Altogether a very well cared for site. Easy access to so many places - the coast, Dorchester, Sherborne, Kingcombe Nature Reserve (Dorset Wildlife Trust), Poundbury was interesting (Kim can tell you more!). A CL doesn’t come much better than this, and it’s very reasonably priced too. Thank you for a lovely few days in absolutely sweltering Dorset!

Lovely stay in charming CL

Kitwhistle Barn
We stayed here for 2 nights in wet and windy weather over Halloween. There are 2 hard standings for wet weather all year round use that are screened from each other by trees and shrubs. The normal grass field for summer use is nicely flat. There is a small wall above the grass field for use with dogs/stretching your legs which has been planted with young trees and has some nice valley views from the top. Easy access to the coast for walks eg West Bay. Beaminster is a lovely local town too. Very friendly owners. Would definitely recommend, a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Pleasant location

Kitwhistle Barn
Pleasant sheltered and quiet CL conveniently located to explore and enjoy rural Dorset. Accommodating host and welcome pack appreciated. Best to approach site via A356 and not through Beaminster as the road is steep and narrow.

Enjoyable stay on a friendly CL

Kitwhistle Barn
I arrived at the CL to find my name chalked on a piece of slate by the hardstanding together with an information pack of local attractions. Kim appeared a couple of minutes later and gave me a warm friendly welcome and advice on the best place to park our motorhome. The CL is tidy and well maintained with the bins and disposal points screened behind some trees. Mature trees and shrubs surround the site and there is an area of newly planted trees which we could walk through up the hill. From the top there were chairs and a bbq which we could use while enjoying views over the countryside. There are walks from the site, including a circular one of about 6 miles to Beaminster, but it's worth checking with Kim before heading off on a walk in case the path has been re-routed. We enjoyed our three nights on the CL and would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in the area.
