Why stay here ...

Hunter's Moon Club Site lies just on the edge of the lovely Wareham Forest. This pleasant caravan park, with play area and dog walk, provides an excellent base for touring the lovely area of Dorset. Many of the area's most attractive locations are safeguarded by the National Trust, including substantial stretches of unforgettable scenic coastline. It is rich in combes, cliffs, bays and islands - particularly rewarding for the visitor interested in bird life and walking. The nearby Golden Cap, of which the National Trust owns, 2,000 acres of hills, farmlands and beaches, has the highest cliff in England and delights with its covering of brilliant yellow gorse. 

This is Thomas Hardy country and visitors to Hunter's Moon Club Site will recognise many of the scenes described in his novels. His birthplace, a charming thatched cottage with its garden magnificently ablaze with colour is situated at Higher Bockhampton, within easy reach from the caravan park. Also of great interest in the area and only a short 10 mile journey away is the house at Cloud's Hill, popular because it once belonged to the famous Lawrence of Arabia. At certain times during the month, the delightful market town of Wareham holds a small but well-stocked farmers market. The area offers good transport links with a railway station at Wareham, which also offers car parking and onward bus travel to the coastal towns of Poole, Swanage and Weymouth. Not to be missed are the National Trust’s Brownsea Island and Corfe Castle.

Walking notes:

The historic stretch of Jurassic Coast has miles of paths to explore while you admire the impressive views. Alternatively, the Wareham Forest Way, between Wareham and Sturminter Marshall, passes the site and offers beautiful views, an Iron Age hill fort and lots of wildlife. Locally, from the top of the site into the woods you can follow the path to Wareham or to ‘The Silent Woman’ public house, one mile from the site.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

Supermarket notes:

The closest are Sainsburys local and Co-op in Wareham (2 miles). There is a Tesco 7 miles away. None have motorhome access.

End of season blues

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
We were greeted by a pleasant warden who gave us information about pitch availability and location. The pitch was noisy due to the neighbouring site, not the club's fault. The general state of the site was tired and unkempt; grass hadn't been cut, leaves not swept up, lots of weeds established on hardstanding pitches, over grown tree branches.I know the season is drawing to a close, but late season holiday makers are entitled to same level of service as early season. The soap dispenser was not refilled during our stay.

Nice site but has issues

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
We were greeted by a miserable receptionist who converserd with the absolute minimum and never asked for our membership cards. Really felt welcome after a 6 hour trip! We pitched on the grass pitches which were quite spacious and quiet. Facilities were good and clean. Security was very poor. We were given a key fob to enter the site and only used it twice in the 7 days we were there. The rest of the time the bar was raised, even at 05:30 on the morning we left. This meant access to anyone from the road and easy exit as it is an auto barrier when you exit. We thought it was quiet until two evenings about 9pm when WW3 broke out. Tank fire, machine gun fire and helicopter activity for 2 - 3 hours. No mention of that in the site details. We had seen a range near Durdle Door but didn't think it was that close. If you are going here and want a quiet stay I would suggest a phone call to see if they are aware of any army activity during your stay. Despite this I would stay here again.

Noisy Neighbours

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
Facilities and site grounds clean and well maintained and although close to road noise level was acceptable, however the constant barking and sometimes howling at all times of the day from adjacent site was not acceptable and perhaps a comment should be included in the clubs on site directory. Wifi was poor and phone signal almost non-existent, overwise the stay was acceptable.

Shame about the neighbours

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
Site and pitch were great. Toilets and showers very clean. Such a shame about the noise from the next door travellers site. Looking at other reviews seems we got off lightly with dogs barking and howling and the cockerel crowing. There was no noise from people, but it certainly put us off another visit. Shame because it's nice otherwise and very well situated

Fantastic

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
On arrival met by (presumably) husband & wife, very jolly and friendly. Made way to pitch and set up. Second trip as new member with new ( for me) motorhome. Very well laid out, very clean site. Very impressed. Good job morning Cockerell lived up to alarm clock or else could have carried on sleeping!! Busy road nearby but went quiet just after lights out, or maybe we were so relaxed and tired and didn't notice!! Overall loved it, and suitably impressed.
