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.

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.

Lovely short break.

Stayed here for a short 3 night stay in February, a nice welcome and quick and easy check in. The site itself is well laid out, clean and tidy, the facilities were spotless although one toilet block was closed for the duration of our stay due to maintenance, this is completely understandable. The area has a wealth of attractions and three days is not long enough to visit them all, so we will gladly return. In line with other reviews we do not understand the comments about road noise we found it very quite. Eating out is very good, particular mention should be made of "The Silent Woman" pub about half a mile from the site and the "Italian Kitchen" in Wareham, both were excellent. Definitely 5*

Fabulous trip

What a gem of a site. We had a short 3 night getaway in January. The site was quiet and peaceful. The dog walk on site is fantastic, gated and fenced off so very safe for a good run of a bit off ball time. The wardens are helpful and friendly but never intrude on your privacy. The shower and toilet blocks were immaculate. The location is brilliant for forest walks (direct from site ) but we choose to go to studland beach which is only a 20 minute drive. Will definitely be back again. 5*

New Year holiday

My Husband and I have been here many times, its one of our favourite Caravan club sites. Everything was up to its usual high standard. There is always lots to do and see from this site and plenty of nice eating out places nearby. My only negative comment this year was that the nine nights we stayed the barrier was not working, we watched motorhomes arriving after dark pitching up and then departing before the office opened, obviously not paying for their pitch.

Worth a Visit

My wife and I spent three days at the site. Lousy weather but the facilities are good. Bathrooms are clean and spacious, with a well maintained laundry. December meant the site was pretty empty, leaving us ample space to move around. TV reception is dodgy at best, but the large pitches seemed good and well drained. Drinking Water and Grey Water disposal all close at hand. Staff helpful but perhaps a little distant. Not too sure of other caravaners / motor-homers comments of noisy road. We never encountered this and evenings were peacefully pleasant - even heard a number of owls hooting, and lots of pheasant activity. The site is well placed and in easy reach to a number of popular tourist haunts. Take advantage of this and mosey around as much as time allows. There is so much to see and do in the area. This is one of our English "Beauty Spots", bordering on a forest and ideal for those of us who are walkers / dogs walkers. Give the pub - Silent Women a visit, but avoid any food. The kitchen is poor. The pub itself is nice and clean and the ales worth a try. We rate the site 4*. Most enjoyable

A winter's tale.

We stayed early December for 3 nights to be near Corfe Castle for their Christmas lights and celebrations. We have stayed here before and like the location. We were one of only 11 units on the site so plenty of pitches to choose from. The facilities are good, the toilet/shower blocks clean and warm. It was a shame there was no toilet block available at the time we left to return home, even the disabled toilet was closed for cleaning which is normally left accessible during cleaning times. I do not understand the complaints regarding the 'noisy road' as we have not had an issue.
