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.
