Why stay here ...

Lower Liston Farm CL is on 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 (Five Oaks Caravan Park) to access my Lower Liston Farm CL, which has large individual pitches with electric points, grey water disposal 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 CL 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.

Brilliant Caravan Site.

Lower Liston Farm
We have stayed here a number of times and although the CAMC states it has a temporary closure this was for 2023 and not 2024. The CL side of the CAMC seem to be falling apart with their website pages outdated. So take no notice of the CAMC website this site has been revamped with lovely showers and up and running. So come on CAMC we pay enough for our membership (SO GET YOUR WEBSITE SORTED)

Lovely, peaceful stay

Lower Liston Farm
Stayed 4 nights at Lower Liston Farm CL and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It is not the biggest CL in terms of space between vehicles if all pitches are taken, but it wasn't full when we were there so we did indeed have open views of the surrounding fields. Very clean and well-kept CL and the pitch was pretty level. We favour Adults only CLs because we like a peaceful site and although you cannot miss the noise of the passing trains they are not very frequent and we quickly came to ignore them. Free reliable wi-fi is a big plus! Thanks Mr Colwill, I'm sure we will return.

Lovely CL

Lower Liston Farm
I cannot add more than to say all earlier reviews are accurate and helpful. We enjoyed 10 nights of leisure time with nice people on site, caring owners and happy Labs using the dog walk. Yes, we will be returning again this year if Graham the owner can accommodate out dates and we will use this great CL in the future.

The rating says it all. Very impressed with everything. Lovely people. Treated very fairly over a matter that was out of our control. Would revisit in a heartbeat. Fully intend doing next year.

A beautifully maintained site surrounded by places of interest

Lower Liston Farm
We've stayed here three times now and will re-visit. The site is well-maintained, with planting between the pitches. The shower/toilet block is clean and convenient. There are recycling facilities and a small washing-up area with an electric kettle. There is an area for dogs adjacent to the site. The wifi works well. It is next to a railway line but, although we hate noise, I hardly noticed it. It's possible to walk into Shaftesbury from the site, through Kingsettle Woods (a delight of wild garlic and bluebells at the moment) and there are wonderful all-round views as you climb towards Shaftesbury. This walk was pointed out by Graham, the site-owner and, indeed, there are walking maps and other literature in the small reception area. Access to the site is by a security gate so the site feels secure.
