General

  • One of the closest campsites to Bournemouth
  • Sociable atmosphere which respects guest's peace and quiet
  • Lots of water-based activities to do nearby

If your camping destination is Dorset-based, farm yourself out to the friendly folk at St Leonards Farm Caravan & Camping Park, which is an ideal base for exploring Bournemouth, Poole and the New Forest. There are sparkling loos, toasty hot water for showers and washing up, and well marked-out pitches – clearly these farm folk know what campers want. And canine campers are welcome too.

If you want to sizzle your own sausages, you can exchange gas cylinders on site and there are two major supermarkets within five minutes’ drive, or two pubs within a mile and a number of nearby restaurants if you’re feeling lazy/thirsty. St Leonards Farm is a sociable but quiet site and has a 'no noise after 11pm' policy – perfect if you’re getting up at the crack of dawn for some seaside exploring.

    We loved the music playing in the toilet/shower block! The ground was waterlogged during our stay and so the outdoor play area for the kids was not open but there was an indoor soft play barn available instead and the kids absolutely LOVED that.
    The site was well laid out and you were never too far the facilities. The toilets and showers were very clean.

    Disliked: 

    Almost nothing.

    The pitch was good and very spacious.

    Disliked: 

    The showering and toilet facilities were very clean and modern however I just found the showers a bit annoying having to constantly press the button for the water to run and it was a bit dribbly however it was manageable for the two nights.

    Easy to find and had a nice welcome, helped us to the pitch and made sure we was ok, even though we arrived late (8pm). Showers and toilet was always clean and water was hot. Similar to festival showers I have when i work at them so that was fine for us both. Was able to collect the deposit for the card very early (7am) so that was handy. Shops are close and open until 10pm..

    Disliked: 

    I bet this place does get quite packed when its busy, as lots of pitches are set up quite close and not much space for children to play around the tent.

Directions


We are located about 7 miles from Bournemouth and 4 miles west of Ringwood just off the A31. We are just opposite the Texaco petrol station at Pinehurst Road. Look out for our big blue sign in the farm fields on your left as you head towards Ferndown from Ringwood. The A31 links directly from the M27 and M3 making us very easy to drive to from London, Southampton and the Midlands via Oxford.

Local attractions

St Leonards Farm is one of the closest campsites to Bournemouth, with sandy beaches only seven miles away. There’s loads to do nearby if you’re feeling full of beans – try watersports such as windsurfing, sailing or surfing at Bournemouth’s artificial reef, or have at it with some go-karting, dry slope skiing, golf, fishing or horse-riding in the scenic surrounding countryside.

Feeling a bit tired after all that sporty exertion? Take a picnic to nearby Moors Valley Country Park, which has a golf course, cycling routes and outdoor play area, or have a family day out at a plethora of local attractions including Paultons Park, Marwell Zoo, Beaulieu Motor Museum and Wimborne Minster Model Town.

Kids will enjoy fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast, and if they’re disappointed by not finding a T-rex skeleton right there and then, you can take them along to the Dinosaur Museum at Dorchester, then spoil them with a day out at Adventure Wonderland less than three miles from the park. The site is also an ideal stop over point for the Poole or Portsmouth cross channel ferries.

Must see

  • Adventure Wonderland (2.8 miles)
  • The Bournemouth Balloon (6.4 miles)
  • Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum (6.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Kingston Lacy (7.2 miles)
