General

  • Quiet, family-friendly and rural site in a wildlife haven
  • Spectacular countryside views
  • Firepits for guests' use and two large barbecues available to hire

Your little critters will blossom at Primrose Fields in Dorset. This small and friendly site close to the River Frome and just outside Wareham is only about a mile from famed ape rescue centre Monkey World: lots of fun to be had comparing family members with apeish inhabitants, of course...

The site's also in prime setting for settling down among nature in a peaceful place, as it's in a rural wildlife haven and has heaps to do nearby without bothering with a car. There's woodland for kids to rummage around in, nature spot, den build or – your fave, no doubt – collect bugs and other small critters; and there's plenty of open space for small sorts to run around.

Pitches at Primrose Fields aren't set, so you can make your camp either in the paddock or in the open woodland. Walkers, cyclists, watersporters, tents, campervans, couples, families and kids are all welcome.

Campfires are allowed within firepits, with sustainably sourced wood and charcoal available to buy on site. For food and supplies, nearby Wareham has a good selection of shops, cafés and pubs, while the modern and spacious Black Dog Inn is a hop over a stile away.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Group bookings of 3 people or more people under 21 years old are not permitted via Pitchup.com

Please note: the facilities are portable toilets and showers. No facility for emptying chemical toilets.

Firewood is available on site at £6 a bag.

    The site was lovely, lots of space and very clean. Lots if fire pits to borrow. Showers were portacabins but with an ample dry section built in wood giving each one plenty of room as privacy. Portaloo' s we're clean.
    Having live music at the neighbouring pub was a bonus!
    Christine did an amazing job, very welcoming.

    Disliked: 

    Noisy neighbour dampened the mood in the early hours, but that's not the sites fault. Portaloos were quite smelly by the morning, but it was an exceptionally hot weekend

  • Liked: 

    Layout of site, very well maintained grounds and friendly manager. The Friday night was great, with just the right level of campers to create ambience but allow everyone some space.

    Disliked: 

    Noise from other campers, campers who camped too close, porta loos very smelly by Sunday morning. Saturday night was very busy and a group of people set up right next to us with no tent. Needless to say they were awake all night talking and kept quite a few of us awake.

    This campsite was truthfully one of the best we have stayed on in years. The toilets are portaloos but kept so clean, even in the hot weather we have recently been experiencing. The showers are again portashowers, but the water was hot/cold enough and stayed on for as long as you needed it. The little area outside for changing and drying was handy too. The washing up facilities were brilliant although a sink or two more would have been good for busy periods.

    We were a big group staying with lots of kids and dogs, we found the site very welcoming to all of us whereas in the past we have found ourselves not so welcome! Firepits, barbecues, music, we could indulge in all these things until the recommended time to go quiet. The pub was sooo close which was fab for the England game that day! My child spent all day playing in the park and on the rope swing, we hardly saw her.

    Excellent site, can't wait to visit again next year. Excellent value for money!

    Disliked: 

    There wasn't much to dislike! The site could benefit from one or two more showers and washing up sinks so people aren't waiting about too much, especially in the heat or wet weather. On that note, a shade could be provided over the dish washing facilities as we were baking whilst stood there. Other than that, no fault could be mentioned at all. The battery on our car ran out as we didn't use it but the light was left on, the site owner was very kind and lent us her jump leads, we were soon on our way.

Directions


Use satnav to get to the A352 between Wareham and Wool then look out for the Black Dog Inn. The site is on the same side.

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

What a lot there is to do around this Wareham-based site, including many options without even having to fire up the car engine: the Frome Valley Trail is close to hand and the quiet country lanes around these parts are just the ticket for gentle cycling. The Bovington Tank Museum and the Jurassic Coast are both easily accessible from the site.

Take a picnic or a catch of local fish and chips down to the grassy riverbank opposite the quay in Wareham for a restful afternoon, or wander around the town's Saxon defence walls for views in all directions. Another good walk is the Two Rivers one down to the backwaters of Poole Harbour, but if you’d rather get out on the water than look at it, you can hire a canoe, kayak or paddleboard for lazy drifting up the Frome.

If you do decide to drive, the fab beaches, countryside and attractions of Purbeck and West Dorset are a short distance away. There's also the birdwatching and nature spotting of the RSPB Arne nature reserve just south of Wareham; splendid old Corfe Castle a 10-minute drive from there, and a steam train from the castle surrounds to the seaside resort and sandy beach of Swanage. North of Swanage is the sandy National Trust-managed Studland Bay.

Drive west from Swanage for some spectacular coastline starting at Durlston Country Park, past Dancing Ledge with its puffin colony and plunge pool cut into the rock, and then on to Seacombe, Winspit and St Aldhelms Head: the Primrose Fields team reckon all this is best combined with a cider brewed by Charlie on site and a homemade pasty at the Square and Compass at Worth Matravers (there's a fossil museum here too).

Finally, if you're up for some cycling, get along to the mix of offroad trails and quiet back lanes around Purbeck, or the quiet family-friendly Sika Trail in Wareham Forest. Purbeck Cycle Hire at Wareham station provides a detailed map of suggested routes in the area.
