If there was an award for ‘most aptly named park’, Back-of-Beyond Touring Park in Dorset might just carry off the gong – and you'd likely give it an accolade or three for activities, location and quiet calm too.

Spread over 30 acres of Dorset woodland, river, heathland and lakes, Back-of-Beyond is reached via a quiet country lane and meanders over countryside naturally inhabited by a wide variety of wildlife: look out for deer, squirrels, moles, rabbits and the soaring sights of birds including the resident woodpecker.

The number of pitches is carefully managed among all this undisturbed space and, even better for a stampede of liberated parents, the park is adults-only.

Restful pastimes on site include free fishing on the park’s lakes and rivers (bring your own equipment and pick up a fishing licence when you arrive); boules; woodland walks and a five-acre nine-hole pitch and putt course among the squirrels, moles and rabbits (hire the necessary bits and pieces on site).

Guests can generally pick their own pitches and a particularly wildlife-filled option is available in ‘Emma’s Field’, a woodland glade. Although Back-of-Beyond is very dog-friendly, they aren’t allowed in Emma’s Field or around the fishing lakes (but pooches can let off steam in the ten-acre woodland area set aside especially for canines).

New owners Victoria and Martin took over Back-of-Beyond in February 2014 and are gently determined to keep the peaceful ethos of the site as well as keep guests tranquil re standards: the up-to-date facilities include three heated loo and shower blocks with power showers and hot water, a private/disabled shower room, hairdryers, indoor and outdoor washing-up areas and reception with morning bakery, lending library, newspapers, launderette and a shop selling bottled gas and essentials. All amenities are free to use and open 24 hours.

Essential supplies (food and beer) can be found at the two excellent pubs within walking distance; supermarkets, restaurants and two caravan and camping centres are within a few minutes by car.
