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.

    The accommodation and site were exceptionally clean. We stayed in the two bed apartment for three nights, it was furnished to a high spec and very comfortable. Slept well each night.

    The staff were happy, friendly and approachable. The grounds are beautiful and the forest feel has been maintained well with an interesting array of flora and fauna. It was very quiet during our stay which helped with the relaxation.

    We loved cooking on the large fire pit, and swimming each day. Both the pool and jacuzzi were great. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Great clean facilities, the toilets and showers were the best I have seen in such a site. Personable service for the majority of the time, central location to many attractions. Large supermarket 10min away. Friendly atmosphere with a great hottub, pool and bar area.

    Disliked: 

    My only complaint was the fact the bar area stayed open until 12.30pm on evening. The loud music stayed on until 11.30pm with loud voices hanging about until the end. This area was staffed by the venues staff and the loudness would have affected the majority of the families staying. The sites rules clearly state no loud music and groups talking after 10pm, this contradiction and the fact that this kept my family awake I found really disappointing and a reason that I probably won't book again. Other then this I would have booked again for sure.

    Fabulous setting, very clean and facilities were excellent - Also the Owners/Staff were very welcoming and on hand if required - Our pitch was level & ok and even though the torrential rain on arrival proved challenging my wife, 10 year old nephew and I settled in and enjoyed the outdoor life for 2 days..The location of site is central to all of the attractions and places of interest as well as local amenities , we will definitely be back for a longer stay..

    Great pool, hot tub and shower facilities. Very laid back, lots of space and very clean. Also loved the fire pits and bbqs and evening bar at the weekend.

    Not much guidance on when people should be quiet at night. A couple of nights noise went into the early hours and was difficult to sleep.

Directions

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)
