General

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

Your little critters will blossom at Primrose Fields in Dorset. This small and friendly site beside Hethfelton Forest 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 traditional Dorset pub the Stokeford Inn is a hop over a stile away.

    Primrose fields is excellent value for money.. The lady who greets you is on arrival was very smiley and welcoming. Theres plenty of pace for the kids to run and play, the portaloos are kept very clean and an added fantastic bonus is you can help yourself to a fire pit for your stay

    Absolutely fantastic site, plenty of space and nice to actually be able to have a fire pit as there are less and less sites allowing you to do this. Awesome location, will definitely be back!

    Disliked: 

    Only issue is there isn't really any shops within walking distance for essentials which if you are in a campervan with non driveaway awning is a bit of an issue. Still enjoyed it though!

    Very relaxed and friendly owner. Perfect for dog owners as there is a fantastic large space for dog walking in the forest neighbouring the camp, easy to spend a long time walking and picking blackberries in there!

    Lots of camping space on the site even though it was the last weekend of school holidays. Fires and BBQs very welcome. Loos and showers always clean and a good source of hot water. Great location to explore the coast in that area. Great value for money as well.

    Disliked: 

    It's hard to find anything, so I'll leave this!

From the manager...

Thanks for this great review and pics - glad you enjoyed the walking best wishes Christina

    I loved everything about Primrose Fields! The owners was so very friendly, the facilities were pretty good, and you felt completely off the beaten track. It was fairly busy as we attended in the height of summer, yet it had the most amazing relaxing and quiet atmosphere. It was a really really nice place to stay.

    Amazing little walks right from the campsite too, PERFECT for dogs!

    We will come back again, year after year!

Directions


Primrose Fields campsite is based at Primrose Farm off the A352, between Wareham and Wool, down a lane which is 50 yards to the east of the Stokeford Inn on the same side of the road. Once you are in the lane take the second gate on the left.

Sat Navs using the site postcode sometimes direct you down other nearby lanes - just use the sat nav to get to the A352 between Wareham and Wool then look out for the Stokeford Inn.

Public transport: excellent train service into nearby Wareham and Wool stations on the London Waterloo to Weymouth line (2.5 hours from Waterloo).

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: miles of walking tracks are all around Hethfelton Forest 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 River 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 ten-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 off-road 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.
