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.

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.

A home from home

A return trip for us and we were greeted by the assistant wardens and immediately made to feel completely at home. We were guided to the best pitch for our needs and, having stayed here before, knew that the site would be top notch. It's literally flawless with the site staff keeping everything ship-shape at all times. A perfect site in a perfect location with excellent staff. Well done all. :)

Nicely laid out site, good large dog walking field, good kids play area

Hunters Moon is easy to find from A35, A31, A350. A short drive from Wareham, which is a nice, small historic town. Well positioned for nice beaches (e.g. Studland), Arne nature reserve, history (Cordero Castle), seasidey towns such as Swanage and lots more. Site is up to the excellent standard you expect from CAMC. Nice friendly staff, shower blocks immaculate. Only downside for us was lack of public transport and it is a longish walk through forest and Sika Trail to Wareham. A good 40-45 mins. You wouldn’t want walk on the road. Overall we had a very nice stay here.

Misleading "Top Tips"

This is an excellent site which is very easily accessible. The welcome was friendly and all the facilities were in great condition. Unfortunately the printed site information leaflet, and the one on the website have two very bad mistakes on the "Visiror's Top Tips" section. "Take the steam railway from Wareham to Swanage" - Not possible as the steam trains run only between Norden (about 4.5 miles from Wareham) and Swanage. It is proposed that a service will run between Wareham and Swanage this summer, but that will be diesel driven. "It's worth walking to the top of Golden Top, it's the highest point on the coast" This is particularly misleading! It appears as if one can walk out of the site and ascend "Golden Top". GOLDEN CAP is indeed the highest point on the South coast of England but it is 36 miles from Hunter's Moon between Chideock and Morecombelake. It is roughly between 2 AS sites at Bridport Binghman Grange and Wood Farm, Charmouth. Other sites much closer are at East Fleet, Weymouth, Crossways and even Smedmore House.

The Flying Scotsman

We chose Hunters Moon because it was near the railway. Useful for us this time to visit for the Flying Scotsman. We have stayed before with family and found it to be easy to find, near to lots of facilities, walks, Corfe Castle, seaside and lots more, also a lovely site to stay on. Quiet, clean good for families and dogs. Level pitches, plenty of room. Clean toilet and shower blocks. Good staff, making sure all is ok but not in your face. We like it very much and will stay again when we come back for our next visit.
