Why stay here ...

Lower Liston Farm is a working farm nestled in one of North Dorset's most beautiful valleys. A peaceful place in the country with natural organic meadows surrounding the campsite. There is an abundance of wild flowers, and mature trees throughout the farm, which attracts many types of wild life. It is an idyllic place to relax and unwind. Yet only 1.5 miles from the historic hill top town of Shaftesbury with the famous Gold Hill and the ancient Abbey ruins, resting place of  Saxon King Canute. The surrounding area has a lot to offer visitors, with Longleat House and Safari Park, Wardour Castle, Monkey World, Tank Museum, Sparkford Car Museum, Yeovilton Air Museum, and Stonehenge all within a thirty minute drive. Annually our local town hosts the agricultural show and carnival and  nearby the Great Dorset Steam Fair.

The farm is situated down a private drive visible from the A350, passing through the farm you will find it opens into a secluded campsite with large individual pitches with electric points and water. There are showers and toilets, chemical disposal point and dishwashing facilities and recycling. Dogs are welcome as long as they are not allowed to roam freely on the site and exercised in the designated walking area.

From the campsite there is a footpath for those who like a stroll, this leads to a network of paths for the more serious walker. There are villages from these paths, here they have a local shop and local country pubs where you can stop for food and beverages.

The farm has a riding school run by qualified instructors, and horses of all sizes. If you would like to experience a lesson there is a discount for Club members.

A CL to match the best Club sites

This site offers full service pitches, quality toilets and excellent views. There is a train route nearby but not intrusive. Graham obviously sets out to provide the best possible service whilst running the farm with horses and sheep, a dog groomers, horse riding (not tried). We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay and recommend unreservedly.

The most peaceful site we have visited

We have just returned from a seven night stay at this most glorious site, friendly owners, excellent facilities , outstanding views from all pitches overlooking farmland where deer can be seen, bird feeders provided so a constant flurry of feathered friends visit. This has been the most relaxing break we’ve had in a long time, thank you Graham and Andrea we are definitely booking for next year.

Beautiful little site

We found this site absolutely delightful with generous pitches, great facilities and beautiful scenery. Graham was so helpful and welcoming and it was a lovely friendly relaxed atmosphere. There are lovely countryside walks to surrounding town and villages which are all very picturesque. A train track passes behind the site and at first we wondered if the noise would be a problem but it wasn't at all. It was my Mum's first camping trip in our campervan and she loved it. Thank you for a great stay.

Great

We have just spent a week on this CL site. We consider it to be the best we have stayed on. Graham and Andrea were extremely welcoming as soon as we arrived. The facilities are second to none. Graham helped me to repair our jokey wheel. It was no trouble. Excellent toilet & shower block was always clean. Great dog exercise areas with dog washing facility. Entry by key pad, so security was good. We will certainly be visiting again at some time in the future.
