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 (a small charge applies), sauna, steam room and indoor pool. 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.

Open from 7 Feb to 2 Jan
