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.

Welcome Stay

We stayed in September and loved the setting, the owner was friendly and helpful, not a complaint but the ladies shower had a mind of its own when someone used the water in the Gents, it turned cold, but being an all service pitch we could use our van. There was something about the location we extended our stay for another 4 days. Yes a train does go by all of 2 seconds, and you dont hear it after a day or so. A very useful stopping point and relaxing stay over, we were happy to be with like minded caravaners and would definately go back. Andy Lynn Tofte (Rye the dog) who really loved the walks from the van

One night on way to Cornwall

I booked for one night stop over on my way to Cornwall - I had a van with my motorbike in the back and my caravan - needed an early start. Graham was very very helpful - placed me in yard so I didnt have to unhook may unit and plugged me in to electric in his shed. Walked round the Cl site very pretty and clean. Cycled in to Shaftesbury in the evening - and up Gold Hill - lovely little fish and chip shop there. Will definitely stay again - longer next time.

Lovely site

What a fantastic little site, arrived thursday 22nd august for 9 nights and was not disappointed, shower block lovely and clean separate showers for men and women. As for our 2 dogs they had an absolute ball, loads of fields to walk around safely. Graham and Andrea were both lovely, accommodating and friendly. Looking to book again for next year an absolute gem of a site. A big thank you to you both.

Sarcasm

Unfortunately we needed to cancel our booking and got no reply from our email and subsequent two calls leaving a message - all of which were only made to ensure we did not let the site down - we were a little surprised on the sarcastic response when all we wanted to do was make sure that our cancellation was not missed What do you think? “I can confirm that your reservation has been cancelled. If you would like to confirm you have received this email for the cancellation, then I will confirm that I received your email confirming you received my email. Many Thanks Graham”

Fabulous site

This is a fabulously well maintained and secure site. The owners have thought of everything and all facilities and serviced pitches are exceptionally well kept. Don't be put off by the site's proximity to the railway line or the A350 - the site is peaceful. Thank you for a great stay.
