Among Dorset countryside on the edge of the River Frome, Snelling Farm is in a rural setting for camping for families, friends and couples. The farm is well off the beaten track a mile from the nearest road, in an unspoilt countryside location but within a short drive of many attractions including The Tank Museum at Bovington and its regular events including Tankfest.

Keen campers themselves, Sam and Cristabel know what's important and they want to keep things simple and relaxed. The owners champion back-to-basics camping, encouraging star gazing and meetups around a campfire, and have picked a scenic, level flat, oak-lined 23-acre field for the camping area where guests can pick their own spot and have plenty of room on unrestricted, non-allocated pitches. Dogs are welcome.

From here you can enjoy the sunrise through the mist of the River Frome, take in the glorious afternoon sun and watching the abundance of roe deer grazing in the evening sunset. This is a real home for wildlife where you can watch the swans, ducks and herons on the river while catching a glimpse of a passing kestrel, hare and even a barn owl at dusk if you're lucky.

The campsite is well equipped with electric hot showers, washing-up sinks, eco-friendly compost toilets (please bring your own loo roll) and drinking water taps. The villages of Wool and Crossways (both three miles) have convenience stores.

When you arrive please follow the signs to the field, pick a spot and pitch up. Sam or Cristabel will be round to say hello when they have finished tending to their animals.
