It’s not as common these days to delve around Dorset by horse-drawn gypsy wagon a la Famous Five (boo), but if you’re one of those fortunate souls with your own tourer or motorhome, you’ll surely like Merley.
Spiffing facilities at Merley Court Touring Park include award-winning pitches and an outdoor pool open in summer, a bar and family room serving up lashings of drinks and meals, a shop, a games room and a children’s play park. Want more? Guests can also use the facilities at Merley Court’s sister site Oakdene seven miles away along the A31, with over 20 on-site activities including a gym, sauna, steam room and indoor pool from £2 per person (pre-book after making your accommodation booking). I say.
The park is set in 15 acres of sheltered grassland and woodland, two miles from the market town of Wimborne and a quick drive from the sands of Poole and Bournemouth. It has direct access to the waymarked Castleman Trailway for 16.5 miles of not too strenuous cycling, walking and horse-riding; you can pedal your way to Poole from here or amble along by the riverside.
All pitches at Merley Court are generously sized, individually numbered and well-drained, with both grass and hardstanding pitches available. Not (yet) got your own tourer or motorhome? Tents are welcome at Merley too. Jolly good.
Groups of single sex or mixed parties are not accepted via Pitchup.com.
No commercial or transit type vehicles permitted on park. Barrier system to enter park; vehicle registration number required.
