- Café, indoor pool, tennis court and a licensed shop
You don’t get to your 51st birthday as a campsite without doing something very right. And the cheerful and dedicated team at Wood Farm Holiday Park near Charmouth in Dorset have had things sorted since 1972: pristine facilities and well-kept grounds, fishing lakes on site stuffed with stock and lots of open space...
The rural setting is pitch-perfect too, among mature trees and in the Char Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, under a mile from Charmouth and the Jurassic Coast. There’s plenty of wildlife to watch, especially around the fishing lakes: rabbits bound about and you can also spot red deer at times.
For tasty fodder, the Offshore Café has takeaway on offer (send the kids to clamber on the shipwreck structure a few metres away until the food arrives). The café overlooks the Offshore indoor pool, which is available to all guests for a small charge; you can buy discount tickets at reception and the pool is free for under-fives.
For other activities, there’s a tennis court on site as well as a giant draughts board to puzzle over, and once you’re ready to explore Dorset, the Wood Farm tourist information room has loads of leaflets on things to do and see in the area. There’s also a licensed park shop selling groceries as well as the daily papers, camping essentials and gas.
Dogs are allowed on site.

The park entrance is directly off the main A35 roundabout on the western side of Charmouth. (Do not go into Charmouth village - remain on the A35.) We are well signposted with international caravan signs.
The beaches at Charmouth and ‘the pearl of Dorset’ Lyme Regis are both within walking distance. Both are known for rich fossil-hunting pickings and have historic towns to browse around – Lyme Regis is famous for its Cobb Harbour and Jane Austen associations, while Charmouth has a Heritage Coast Centre to help you out with your fossil finds.
Charmouth is one of the gateway towns to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, with coastal walks, climbing, watersports and fishing all abounding along its 93-mile stretch.
The ‘anchor towns’ of Exeter, Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch are all accessible from this section of coast: kids can splash about at the Splashdown Water Park in Poole, walk under water in the tunnel at Bournemouth Oceanarium or get crafty at the ‘yummy mummy centre’ Zooma in Christchurch.
For wildlife watching, take a trip on the Seaton open air tramway along the Axe estuary to see flocks of wading birds at the area’s nature reserves, or go to one of the many wildlife centres and attractions about; you could peer at the meerkats in the Axe Valley Wildlife Park, or see the seals among the thousand animals at Weymouth Sealife Park. Wildlife of an ancient bent can be scoped at Dorchester’s award-winning Dinosaur Museum.
A Jurassic-sized amount of historical attractions is in Dorset and neighbouring Devon too, such as medieval Forde Abbey, the grottoes and gardens at Mapperton Abbey, the National Trust’s Shute Barton and the exotic Japanese gardens and Egyptian artefacts at Kingston Lacy House and Gardens.
