Why stay here ...
Charles and Judy Norman welcome visitors to their CL at Winterborne Monkton set in the heart of a Victorian hamlet consisting of a working farm, cottages and a church. The site is close to the A354 with good access for single and double axle outfits, along a lane with passing places. Motorhomes have the option of using hard standing areas particularly during the winter. The quarter acre plot is level and well maintained with lawned pitches, electric hook ups and TV aerials. Optional shower and toilet facilities, with disabled access, have proved a popular addition, and are situated in a stone building opposite the entrance. A wooden chalet contains essential information for new visitors. Although we are not able to offer wi-fi, a new mast in the area has improved reception for mobile networks (particularly Vodafone).
Unspoilt farmland extends beyond the site, along the South Winterborne valley and up to the ramparts of Maiden Castle. This huge and ancient monument can be reached on foot from the village and is especially popular for its circular walks and panoramic views. Nature lovers will find a good variety of wildlife around the site (an RSPB survey found 39 species of birds on the farm, including our resident barn owl roosting in the barn opposite the CL).
With its central location, the site provides accessibility to all parts of Dorset. A bus service operates approximately every 20 minutes between Dorchester and Weymouth; the bus stops are an easy 10 minute walk from the village.
In Winterborne Monkton, visitors can combine the convenience of being close to Dorchester, the historic county town, with the tranquillity of staying in a rural location of outstanding natural beauty.
