Clouds Hill Glade: Visitor image of the pitches

General

  • Small site in a woodland clearing 10 minutes' drive from Wareham
  • A 20-minute drive to Durdle Door; 25 minutes to Swanage beach
  • Monkey World and The Tank Museum five minutes' drive away

Fancy parking up at a pitch in a gorgeous little glade in the woods? Somewhere small that feels secluded but is actually handily placed for all sorts of Dorset days out? Take your motorhome along to Clouds Hill Glade, in a rural spot 10 minutes’ drive from both Bere Regis and Wareham.

There’s very little by way of facilities here, so you’ll need to come along in a motorhome that’s self-contained for facilities and power (there is a septic tank for disposal but you’ll need to use green chemicals only here in order to protect the local environment). In return for bringing along your own facilities you’ll be rewarded with a peaceful place to stay, surrounded by woodland and wildlife and backing onto heathland and more woods for some splendid walks and bike rides.

It all feels rather delightfully detached from the rest of the world, but when you do venture out you’re likely to find this location on the edge of the Isle of Purbeck to be rather handy. The National Trust site Clouds Hill is just over the road and the Lawrence of Arabia Memorial a few minutes’ walk away, and it’s a couple of miles to a couple of Dorset’s top attractions in the form of Monkey World and The Tank Museum.

Beyond all of that are plenty more ways to fill your days – whether you fancy hitting the Jurassic Coast, taking a ride on the Swanage Railway or coming face to face with the Cerne Abbas Giant, it’s all within a half-hour drive.

For a basic, wild camp perfect.05/01/2023

  • Liked: 

    Very basic, wild camping with toilet emptying and water. Quiet, some road noise during the day but that doesn’t both us. Nice little woodland walks. Cause of time of year the little attraction across road was closed. Didn’t hear any tanks or monkeys as some have experienced. This was perfect for us basic had the place to ourselves. Not easy to find the entrance but finally did. As was opposite the cloud hill road.

    Disliked: 

    Only Struggle to see pitches as covered with leafs. Didn’t want to get stuck in the mud as it has been very wet.

    I knew there were no facilities before going but expected the pitches to be more obvious, right off the main road, no security, anyone could have rocked up..so turned around and drove home.

    Disliked: 

    Close to road -20 yards away and noisy but quieter at night. Very basic pitches not level. Tank noise too! Overpriced at £20 and to be honest east plenty of lay-bys in the vicinity that would have been as good! Camping pods being built - wouldn’t be the most relaxing place to stay!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The twin attractions of Bovington (five minutes’ drive) are likely to feature on the itinerary for many guests here – stop in at The Tank Museum to see armoured vehicles from across the ages, then have a giggle at the apes’ antics at Monkey World.

Similarly, it’s pretty much impossible to resist the draw of the Jurassic Coast when staying in this area. Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove (20 minutes) are perhaps the most famous spots, but there are lots of other lovely corners to seek out, and of course some great walks linking them up on the South West Coast Path.

For other days out, take your pick from madcap floating obstacles at Dorset Adventure Park, peaceful strolls at the Blue Pool, clambering over the ruins at Corfe Castle (all 15 minutes) or maybe settling on the beach in Studland or Swanage (both 25 minutes).

Must see

  • The Tank Museum (1.7 miles)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (2.1 miles)
  • Lulworth Castle & Park (5.9 miles)
