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.

Fantastic site.

We have just returned after 10 perfect days at Lower Liston. It is our 4th year running and we have booked again for next year. We can’t fault the site. Graham and Andrea are perfect hosts and the facilities are immaculate.

Nice site, but too many units

This is a great site, but spoilt during our stay by there being too many caravan units in what is a fairly small space. On arrival there were five occupied spaces, and one empty van. The next day a sixth arrived, and the empty unit was filled, making a total of seven units. Today it dropped to six, but two more vans have parked up just outside the entrance to this field, so we have eight units. We choose cl's because we like an uncrowded, laid back site. So, the rules are being broken, but we are also not allowed to put a windbreak up!

Lovely Site

Just returned from this lovely site, equal to any club site that we have stayed at. Graham and his wife were very keen to make sure we had a pleasant stay. The facilities are as good if not better than some main sites. The Owners must want to pull their hair out sometimes because they have tried to make it so nice and clearly we the customers fail to read the notices. Ie a perfectly placed dog bin in the exercise area somebody was too lazy to pick up their dogs poo and I stood on it, could so easily be taken back into your caravan via your shoe. Not very thoughtful. Somebody else took no notice of the clear instructions for recycling card board, and just shoved a large box into the wrong bin. We look forward to staying at this site again, it is secure and very peaceful and easily reached off the A350.

Long weekend

We arrived at this beautiful site and we were met by Graham the owner at the gate,who was very friendly and welcoming.He showed us to our pitch and explained everything that we needed to know.Graham was very informative and talked to us about the local area and advised us of the best area for cycling.The site is absolutely immaculate with fully serviced pitches and a lovely view across the fields.There is a toilet block with showers that was absolutely spotless.This is one of the best cl’s we have stayed on and would highly recommend it.We will definitely be returning.
