Generous room on your chosen spot

General

  • Fishery-based site on the edge of the stunningly scenic Dorset Downs
  • Half an hour from the sandy beaches of the Jurassic Coast
  • Large tackle shop and plenty of onsite fishing waters to choose from

Hoping for a quiet and peaceful countryside retreat close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Revels Fishery – a family-friendly site less than five minutes’ drive from the Dorset village of Middlemarsh – will tick all your boxes.

Though the site’s also open to guests who aren’t interested in casting a line, it’s simply a dream for angling fans: there are seven fishing waters on site where perch, tench, barbel, carp, catfish, bream and chub are plentiful, and a large tackle shop is just an added lure.

The site’s also well-placed for rambling excursions through the Dorset Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the scenic Dorset countryside. There are loads of bridleways and footpaths to follow right from the site, and walking fuel is a cinch round here too: nab some fresh eggs from the resident chickens and ducks in the morning and boil them up for mid-hike energy boosts.

Not much of a hiker or biker? Head into Middlemarsh to clamber aboard the village’s bus service to Dorchester, Sherborne or (and?) Yeovil for historical sights, shopping and local eats, or just chill on site instead, soaking up the views of the fishing waters and Blackmore Vale.

Excellent site for fishing people. Handy stopover for the ferry.12/10/2019

    Handy stopover.
    Reasonably priced.
    Fishing available

    Disliked: 

    Shower block was very basic and needs an upgrade.
    Shower base and walls needs tiling.
    There is no light in the shower and nowhere for clothes, whilst showering.

    To be fair the owner did say he was going to upgrade the facilities and had started to paint the walls in the wc cubicles.
    Will be interesting to see the progress when visiting next year.

    Everything. Peaceful secluded site with all the basic facilities you need. Friendly helpful staff and owner. Good fishing with a wide choice of ponds and great tackle shop on site. If I had young children I'm not sure it would be the place to go just for obvious safety reasons as this primarily a fishing venue with lots of open waters.

Local attractions

If standing on the shoulders of giants has always appealed, make immediate tracks for Cerne Abbas, a small village 10 minutes’ drive from the site. As well as pubs serving local beers, the village has access to a National Trust trail leading up to the Cerne Abbas (very anatomically correct) giant.

When 17th-century hill figures simply won’t satisfy history cravings, head instead for Minterne House and Gardens, five minutes from base. The house itself may be closed to casual visitors, but wandering the Capability Brown-style Himalayan gardens should more than make up for that – and the house itself is certainly pretty enough from the outside to warrant repeated gazes on strolls.

Plenty else by way of history is within easy reach – the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Hayes International Motor Museum and the Tank Museum are all within 35 minutes – but taking time to explore nearby towns is a must. Dorchester (15 minutes) is a particular treat, with roman remains, Terracotta warriors, a Tutankhamun exhibition and Thomas Hardy’s birthplace to visit, but the markets, castles and abbey of Sherborne (15 minutes), and the railway centre, toy museum and Montacute House in Yeovil (25 minutes), are also worthy of car trips.

Days on the sand might be all anyone needs on hols, though, so luckily it’s only 30 minutes to the famed Jurassic Coast and to seaside towns like Weymouth, where the lengthy Chesil beach, massive sand sculptures and harbour fort all await.

Must see

  • Hardy's Birthplace (8.8 miles)
  • Mapperton House & Gardens (11.4 miles)
  • Montacute House (13.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Hardy's Cottage (8.8 miles)
  • Max Gate (9.8 miles)
