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. Beyond the farm you will pass through a small commercial site to access the CL, which has large individual pitches with electric points and water. There is an allocated toilet and shower on the commercial site, along with washing-up and laundry that members staying on the CL can use. WiFi is available and free on site. 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.

Faultless

Lower Liston Caravan Park
This site is extremely well kept with excellent facilities. Graham and Andrea make sure you have a perfect stay and are available at all times. If you like walking it is perfectly located and there are guides available in the reception for your use. We would definitely recommend this site and intend to return.

Truly Excellent Site

Lower Liston Caravan Park
We have returned a number of times and each time the site has got better and better. Graham is a caravaner himself so totally understands what we need and sets out to provide it to the highest standards. The pitch sizes are very generous and there are no restrictions when positioning the caravan to fully enjoy the brilliant views. We will continue to return.

Not quite a CL site

Lower Liston Caravan Park
Easy to find and easy booking in. Nice layout and ease of access to a footpath that goes through the site and can take you to local villages and beyond. Shower and toilet facilities should you choose to use them are of a good standard. Lots of well marked recycling bins and a nicely kept dog exercise area. The site is quiet although you do have a train line running alongside it but the trains that run, maybe hourly are past within seconds. There are 14-pitches at the site, so you don’t get the remoteness you feel with the usual standard of a CL site. The map you are given upon arrival suggests that the CAMC enclosure is at the end of the site, however we nor other CAMC members, were situated in that area.

Fabulous site

Lower Liston Caravan Park
Enjoyed a wonderful stay on this site surrounded by beautiful scenery, The owners, Graham and Andrea work so hard to keep everything clean and tidy and were so friendly and helpful. Good size pitch with water, ehu and waste water on each pitch. Can walk to Shaftesbury across the fields and lots of beautiful places to visit nearby.

Better than any commercial site

Lower Liston Caravan Park
Spent 2 weeks in July through torrential rain and scorching sun! What a lovely peaceful site to relax on. The facilities are excellent, clean and well kept. The bonus of water and grey waste connections on each pitch was as good as a full commercial site without noise and children running about! Plan to return in September.
