Why stay here ...

Hunter's Moon Caravan 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 Caravan 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.

Lovely weekend

We have just returned from a great weekend visit. The site is really clean, tidy and well maintained. The wardens were very helpful and welcoming. We were near the road on a service pitch, but the traffic did not bother us at all, there was no road noise at night. The gypsy site is next door but again apart from a few dogs barking this made no difference to our stay. There is a nice pub up the road, the silent woman, which is really good, about five minutes walk along the road having turned right out of the site. Food is reasonably priced, big portions and lots of choice on the menu. They don't allow children inside but they can go in the garden, lovely on a summers evening. Dogs are welcome inside! Make sure you book a table as it is busy, info on their website. Watch out, the information says there are buses to Poole, this is not the case. We came in the motorhome and didn't bring the little car because we thought we could catch the bus, but it is a two mile walk to the bus stop. So we contented ourselves with a few walks in the forest and a meal in the pub.

New Year Break.

Recently returned from Hunters Moon after our first time away for new year. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the buffet/drinks new years eve, provided courtesy of wardens and assistant wardens. Facilities were really clean and well maintained by hard working wardens. We met with some nice people and the whole atmosphere over the new year period was fantastic. Also met with some people we have seen before, so it was nice to catch up with friends. Resident wardens, Trevor and Claire are lovely people and make everyone feel welcome, assistant wardens were nice also. Verdict : Will definitely spend new year in van again, and would have no hesitation in staying at Hunters Moon.

Christmas 2016 stay

Arrived on site and was met at the office desk by the site wardens. Very helpful people and into the Christmas spirt 100% We chose pitch 77 and our friends pitched next to us. The pitches are nice and big, easily accommodating our caravan, awning and car. All the facility's are of the very high Caravan club standards. We set up our Christmas lights and were delighted to hear fellow caravaners and wardens got a lot of pleasure from seeing them. We had a great time at this site during Christmas this year. Will recommend to anybody visiting Thank you to everybody at Hunters Moon for a very enjoyable stay Steve Teasdale
