Path through to the site

General

  • Peaceful car-free site on an organic farm in the Blackmore Vale
  • Within an hour of Jurassic Coast beaches, Stonehenge and Longleat
  • Farm produce sold on site; 10 minutes from fishing and indoor pool

Hankering for the heaths, and desperate for the downs? Have a look at Haddon Copse Farm in Dorset, a small and peaceful site with views across Blackmore Vale.

Although quietly rural, this scenic site is well set: a 10-minute drive from shops, pubs and supermarkets in the small town of Sturminster Newton, and at the centre of an area of castles and ancient monuments, clifftop heaths and secluded beaches. Indoor heated pool antics and coarse fishing on the lakes are at The Victorian Barn, 10 minutes' drive away.

Haddon Copse is part of a working organic farm and the shop sells home-reared chicken, lamb and pork, as well as eggs, milk, butter and locally baked bread. You'll have your own private firepit whichever accommodation option you go for here... there's dinner (and breakfast, and second breakfast) easily sorted...

Nor will you need to worry about cars as parking is off-site here, meaning bags of safe space for everyone to stretch out and run about, savouring the fresh air and the views over the Dorset downs. This is a seriously pretty spot to settle down in overall: even the toilets and shower are tastefully surrounded by a newly planted orchard.

Please note

    Peaceful location, helpful owner, good facilities and only a few tent pitches on site what made our stay very relaxing. No crowd, no rubbish around and nice views of the hills.

    Disliked: 

    Pop up dinner organised by the owner was extremely loud and prevented our kids from sleeping. It is a shame as the site’s policy mentions no noise after 20:30 and no recorded music allowed.

Local attractions

For further cracking countryside views, take a short hike up Hambledon Hill (20 minutes) and have a ramble round the remains of the Iron Age fort.

If it’s castles you’re craving, Sherborne (25 minutes) has two: one 12th-century ruin and one lavish Tudor pile where Sir Walter Raleigh spent his retirement (by a lake where walks and fishing remain the pastimes of choice these days too). Further off, Corfe and Lulworth castles (both 50 minutes) make a contrasting pair of medieval ruins and 17th-century showmanship, and it’s an hour’s drive to ancient and spectacular Stonehenge.

Beach days? Sample the surfing action and cliff kayaking at Lulworth Cove (50 minutes), or go for peace and seclusion at Winspit Sands, where there's a walking path from Worth Matravers (an hour from the site).

Also an hour away, Kimmeridge beach and the surrounding Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve are top spots for rockpooling, and if you want to take your wildlife wanders deeper, there are underwater nature trails for snorkellers and divers. Or hit the heaths: purple heather-covered Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve is home to all six native British reptile species, as well as nightjars and egrets.

For wildlife on a bigger scale, meet the hairy charmers at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, or motor your way through the lions, tigers and elephants of Longleat Safari Park (35 and 50 minutes).
