Horton Camping and Glamping Resort: Swimming pool

General

  • Luxury Dorset resort set in secluded lakeside woodland
  • A 15-minute drive to the New Forest, 25 to Bournemouth and 35 to Poole
  • Hot tub, pool, poolside bar, barbecue area and pizza oven

Woods, a stream and a lake. Check. Forest rambles and beaches within half an hour’s drive. Check. Hot tub, sauna, swimming pool… is this place for real? Yup, it's Horton Camping and Glamping in Dorset. Whether you're looking to get away for a relaxing few days with your partner, or wanting to explore the fabulous Dorset countryside with your family, Horton Camping and Glamping Resort is a high-end pick in a top spot.

This most-scenic option has a mix of forest and open space set over seven acres for accommodation and activities, and everyone has access to the hot tub and swimming pool open in high season.

If swims and submerges stoke up your appetite, head to the barbecue area to cook over coals or use your own gas cooker (provided with bell tents and safari tents for outside use only). The terrace bar is also available for refreshments to keep the family cool on a hot day.

This site is also an oasis for wildlife – keep a beady eye out for roe deer, foxes and rabbits flitting about in the surrounds. And if you’d like to do your own scampering, the resort is within 15 minutes' drive of the New Forest and 30 to 35 minutes from the seaside towns of Poole and Bournemouth.

Excellently kept amenities (the attention to detail really does reach every nook and cranny here) are also a highlight of this park, including washrooms and showers with toiletries provided.

Horton Camping and Glamping Resort is not a nudist site but has a sister park, Rivendell Outdoor Club, next door for folk who prefer naturist hols.

    It would be helpful to have an adults only period on the hot tub and pool, as in busy months it is overran by kids.

    Compact, lovely site. Level pitches, enclosed in picturesque woodland. All tents were close to amenities, even though our tent was the furthest away. Great on site washing up facilities, lots of on site BBQ's so cooking was never a problem. Having the swimming pool and jacuzzi on site was ideal for our children.

    Disliked: 

    Shower facilities were very good. However they needed cleaning much more frequently, due to the amount of people in and out from using the pool. The floor was constantly sopping wet and dirty, and the sinks were often the same.

    The pool, hot tub, sauna, bar and chilled vibe.
    The pool made it for us the kids loved being in there with all their friends.
    Shower and Washing up facilities were excellent.
    The communal fridge such a great idea. Loved this was a real bonus.
    We had the best time 😊

    Disliked: 

    Tents a little close could hear the very loud snorer next door!
    People crunching up the gravel at 3am to go to the loo walk on the grass !!!
    Having to walk our stuff down as trolleys hogged by selfish campers !
    Would have been a nightmare packing up if it was raining not having our car at the pitch.

Good facilities, good location but needs work to be a16/08/2021

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    The campsite has some great facilities & isn't too big so great for little ones running around. The communal BBQs, fire pits, swimming pool are fab.

    Disliked: 

    The shower & toilet block wasn't as clean as a lot of other sites I've been to, which lets it down a bit.
    Also to note, the site is very shaded so if it's been wet, it takes ages for the ground to dry out meaning it can be quite boggy/muddy.
    If they improved their grounds a bit & ensured better cleaning, it could be a really lovely site.

Local attractions

Just over half an hour's drive away, Poole has plenty to offer day-trippers with its sandy beaches, handsome old town and harbour area; it's also the departure point for boat trips out to Brownsea Island, a wooded sanctuary teeming with wildlife. If this gives you a taste for seafaring, take a cruise along the Jurassic Coast (or even a ferry to Jersey).

Those after bigger thrills in the water should aim for Splashdown waterpark (30 minutes' drive), which has pools and over a dozen indoor and outdoor flumes and rides. There's more of that inland at Dorset Waterpark near Corfe Castle (45 minutes), and who could go near Corfe without going round the very fine old castle too?

For more ancient history, the isle of Purbeck (an hour) is fab for fossil hunters and the famed monument of Stonehenge is 45 minutes from the site.

For petrolheads, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu (45 minutes) has a collection of classic vehicles to gaze on enviously before you get back in your own. This is fine road trip country as well, with attractive old market towns like Wimborne Minster and stately homes such as Kingston Lacy within 20 minutes.

Must see

  • Kingston Lacy House and Gardens (5.9 miles)
  • Adventure Wonderland (6.6 miles)
  • The Bournemouth Balloon (9.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Kingston Lacy (5.9 miles)
  • White Mill (7.1 miles)
