Fairway Glamping

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Dorset glamping site next to the river Stour
  • On the edge of Canford Magna; Wimborne 10 minutes' drive
  • Rolling grass site on the old fairway of a golf course

You might call this place a calm riverside oasis or a fitting base for hiking and surfing trips. Both would be correct – Fairway Glamping is, first and foremost, a relaxing bell tent site in a quiet Dorset location. Those of you planning on venturing away from base will also be happy to find that it’s next to the Stour Valley Way (walking along here will get you to the lovely market town of Wimborne Minster and further on, the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

There are other fine places that this place might open you up to. Next to the site is a nature reserve, and a short drive brings you to the famous beaches of Bournemouth and Sandbanks in Poole. On the edge of the quiet village of Canford Magna, settling down certainly puts you in a good spot for taking in the spectacular Jurassic Coast too.

What are these bells like, then? Well, they’re spacious five-metre tents and they each come with a double bed and two singles. There’s also access to well-maintained shared toilets and showers.

If you’re wondering what’s in store for your tummy, firepits are available to hire on site, with street food available three times a week throughout August if you'd rather leave the cooking to someone else. Popular dining options in the local area include Wimborne's pubs and restaurants and the many eateries in Poole that run down to the quayside.

Local attractions

Here, you might want to start close to the site and work your way outwards. Wimborne Minster (five minutes' drive) is a local historical highlight, but Kingston Lacy (15 minutes) just slightly further out is especially grand. Here, take a tour around the house styled on a Venetian palace or take a walk in the park grounds.

There’s big potential for daring endeavours in Moors Valley Country Park (15 minutes), especially when it comes to the high ropes Go Ape course, cycling trails and walks with a hawk. It’s the same sort of situation in The New Forest (20 minutes), where walks among New Forest ponies, canoeing down the river and archery are some outdoorsy options.

Next up are beaches, which are likely to be important, of course: buzzy Bournemouth (20 minutes) and watersports-central Sandbanks beach (25 minutes) are the big options.

Christchurch (30 minutes) provides more coastline, but it joins Corfe Castle (30 minutes) as a great historical location. There are two castles in Christchurch, and Corfe Castle is certainly a spectacular hilltop ruin.

Must see

  • Adventure Wonderland (4.0 miles)
  • Kingston Lacy House and Gardens (4.8 miles)
  • The Bournemouth Balloon (5.0 miles)
