Why stay here ...

On the outskirts of Sturminster Marshall lies Dorset Springs. An idyllic location set amongst lakes, paddocks and meadows. The lakes are pleasant to walk around and the surrounding fields are grazed by sheep. For the keen carp fisherman day tickets are available for the 5 1/2 acre lake. Due to the close proximity of the lakes, young children must be closely supervised and for this reason lakeside pitches are restricted to adults only.

There is chemical emptying point, water tap and a toilet on site. Awnings are welcome.

We welcome all the family including well behaved pets but we politely request that they are kept under close control. Sturminster Marshall village is approximately 1/2 mile away. There is a farm shop with cafe, a small convenience store with a small off licence, pharmacy and pub.

The local towns of Blandford, Wimborne and Poole offer historical attractions and leisure facilities. They have services including restaurants, pub, chip shop, petrol station, supermarkets and a variety of shops. For families there are a variety of soft play venues, trampoline park, cinema and Farmer Palmers. Poole has a train station and ferry port, so we are an ideal location for a stop-over on the way to or from France. We welcome visitors all year round whether it is for a stop over, a weekend or a relaxing holiday.

Dorset Springs is the ideal base to explore Dorset whether it's exploring the countryside, the Jurassic coast, National Trust sites including Kingston Lacey and Corfe Castle, or enjoying beautiful coastal walks. Enjoy the sandy beaches of Sandbanks, the stony shores of Lulworth or take a step back in time and visit Tyneham. It is also a great base for local events including the Great Dorset Steam fair and Dorset County Show. With this on the door step you can be as adventurous or as relaxed as you like.

A Gem

We recently spent four fantastic days at Dorset Springs. The welcome from Katharine (Dory) & Steve was exceptional. They made sure we were settled and had everything we required. The location is perfect, the site is very well maintained, with amazing views across the fishing lakes. We would highly recommend Dorset Springs to anybody visiting the area. We will be back!

Simply Stunning

We found this campsite by chance and, as a bonus, it also has on site fishing. What a special little site. Owners, Steve and Dory, are friendly and welcoming without being imposing. The views of the lakes are simply stunning in all weathers. Sheep, Greece (with newly hatched goslings) and swans share the peaceful and tranquil surroundings. A true wildlife lovers paradise. We stayed may bank holiday weekend and witnessed the differing weather from sunshine to early morning misty frost. Waking up to the beauty in front of our window each morning made us smile continuously. We will most definitely return. Thank you for sharing your ‘Garden’ with us. Shame I cannot share the stunning photos

Amazing Site

Recently visited this fantastic site over the Easter weekend for four nights. The hosts Steve and Dory are super friendly. Views are amazing over looking beautifully kept lakes and well maintained grounds. Overall location great for access to local attractions such as Corfe Castle, Shaftsbury, Poole, Brownsea Island, Kingston Lacey. We will definitely be coming back.
