The Dower House, ‘The Touring Park in the Heart of the Forest' where most of the "extras" are free and large pitches come as standard. Tucked away in one of the most beautiful corners of England, with the forest on your doorstep, you will find it easy to relax.

We are pleased to have received, for the fourteenth consecutive year, the David Bellamy Gold Award. This award is very important to us, not only for its value in the conservation of our surrounding countryside, but also as it is based on the opinions of our customers and reflects their experiences whilst staying at The Dower House, making the award an honour we are proud to accept.
We offer a free heated swimming pool (opens end of May). A childrens' activity area with badminton/volley ball net, cricket area & goals for those football fanatics in the Summer.
Our onsite pub, The Travellers Rest caters for all your drinking requirements on a daily basis in busier periods.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
