Scheduled bus passes site entrance (Monday - Friday)

The site is situated 7 miles south of Sherborne, a beautiful small market town, which combines history, culture and hosts numerous events throughout the year. Explore the Abbey, one of the two castles or simply relax in a coffee shop after a spot of shopping in Cheap Street.

The county town of Dorchester is 14 miles to the south, where you will find some of the best preserved Roman ruins, moments away from the high street. Visit one of the 8 museums or take a trip to the cinema.

A scheduled bus service passes the site entrance connecting Sherborne and Dorchester, so you can leave your vehicle on site. The bus connects to mainline train stations in both towns so day trips to Weymouth, Exeter, Salisbury or further afield are possible.

There are plenty of lovely village pubs in the locality, the closest being a short walk away via a public footpath. Most local pubs are dog friendly.

The stunning Minterne Gardens are only a short drive away, as is the historic village of Cerne Abbas and its famous giant.

Please check our availability and book online via our website and follow us on Facebook for late availability and to keep up to date.

A warm welcome when we arrived and all information given in a email before arrival. A very well run site, all you need for a good break. There is even a pile of bricks for use with instant BBQ if needed. We had some wonderful sunsets and putting your hand out for the bus to stop outside the site is a bonus.

Simply Wonderful

Cherry Cottage CL
We had a wonderful 5 night stay with Lynn, who was a marvelous host. A welcome hardstanding with water tap and EHU for our large motorhome. Modern and clean water and toilet emptying facilities. Spotless toilet and laundry via an enchanting walk back up through the paddock road, past the sheep and horses. Simply an idyllic CL. Weather was overcast but dry, We even had one sunset on our last night. We used the bus outside the CL for 3 of our 5 days, without any problems, visiting Yeovil, Dorchester and Sherborne. Without doubt the best CL we have stayed on. Thanks Lynn.

Cherry Cottage CL - August 2021

Cherry Cottage CL
We’ve just come back from 9 nights at Cherry Cottage. What a fabulous little CL. We are a big twin axle Lunar Delta but although the entrance looks smallish, we managed OK on arrival. On leaving Jonathan and Lynn the site owners were invaluable in keeping an eye out for us and fab directions on when to turn, so easy to get back on the road. We had amazing weather so out about a lot, Hardy’s Cottage and Max Gate, Portland Bill, Golden Cap, fossil hunting at Charmouth, Abbostsbury Swannery and Sub Tropical gardens, Chesil Beach, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, museums and shops in Dorchester, Maiden Castle and Portland Castle and Boleaze Cove beach (as recommended by Lynn). On our final day we just popped to Montecute House (NT) near Yeovil. We used the Cadac a few times for BBQ, eat out one evening in Sherbourne, which is a lovely place. We had family staying in a gorgeous town house there the same week, although we had all booked unaware of what others were doing, amazing coincidence. The site is immaculate, all 5 pitches have own tap so Aquaroll float setup and no need to fetch water. As it was summer we were allowed to put the shower and bathroom sink waste water into the hedge. Just one teeny recommendation – the drain where you empty the grey waste, the brick surround would be so much better if it was bigger so water goes into the drain rather than off the edge of the concrete plinth. Lynn was around for a chat most days and it was great to take onboard some of her suggestions on places to visit. The day we went to Lyme Regis, we had been to Charmouth in the morning so it was mid-day when we arrived and couldn’t find any parking spaces in five car parks, so if you head that way go early. If we were heading back to Dorset any time, this would easily be top of the list. Massive thanks to Lynn, Jonathan and Samantha. Regards, Steve, Linda and Jonty.
