General

  • Peaceful 30-acre rural site 15 minutes' drive from Poole
  • Less than an hour's drive from the New Forest and Peppa Pig World
  • Adventure playground, natural landscaping and wildlife spotting

If you’re seeking a chilled-out rural stay but with easy access to Dorset’s many, many attractions, it’s worth making tracks to Beacon Hill Touring Park. From this fab spot, three miles from central Poole, it’s a cinch to get to the New Forest, the Jurassic coast and Peppa Pig World, not to mention an array of excellent beaches.

Spacious pitches are spread around the 30-acre site, with lots of natural landscaping giving the place a freeform vibe (no regimented lines of caravans here). Leisure facilities tucked around the grounds include an adventure play area to keep the kids fully entertained in this spacious setting.

Being of a rural nature, this place is also something of a wildlife haven – take a wander around the 30 acres of woods and heathland to see if you can spot some of the local beasties, including all six varieties of native British reptile and around 20 breeds of dragonflies.

Local attractions

You’re not far from the sea here, so grab your beach kit, walking boots and/or sea legs and make for the stunning Dorset coastline. Top seaside outings include boat trips to Brownsea Island from Poole Harbour, beach days at Sandbanks and walks on the South West Coast Path – 630 miles of path run west from Poole Harbour if you're feeling truly energetic.

Those with nippers in their travelling party will have lots of day trips to pick from around these parts: meet the animals at Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park (10 minutes away), zoom down the slides at Splashdown waterpark (15 minutes away) or spend the day at Paulton’s Park, home to rides, animal attractions and Peppa Pig World (50 minutes).

It’s also worth making a trip over to the New Forest National Park, half an hour away, for walks, bike rides and horseback treks across the heath, moorland and forests where more than 3,000 wild ponies roam.
