General

  • Family-friendly park a mile from the market town of Wimborne
  • Monkey World, Peppa Pig World and the Jurassic Coast within 45 minutes
  • Heated outdoor pool, playground, BMX track and café on site

Best be waving bye-bye to the boss for as long a while as poss if you’re wending your way to Wilksworth Caravan Park… there’s a rather lengthy list of stuff to do in the vicinity of this family-friendly spot a mile from Wimborne.

Even before you’ve even ventured beyond the park’s boundaries there’s much to fill an hour or few with: an outdoor pool with splash pool for the small sorts, a football field, a BMX track, table tennis, a playground and the tiddler-friendly Tiny Town playhouse village. Site passes also entitle you to scoot over to a sister park 20 minutes away to swim in their indoor pool, work out at the well-equipped gym and join in with a huge range of daytime activities and evening ents.

And you’ll no doubt be wanting to leave plenty of time for getting out and about too: beaches, forest walks, pony rides, museums and boat trips are all within easy reach… and it’s just possible the kids may draw your attention to the proximity of Monkey World and/or Peppa Pig World too.

In the interests of maxing out your available leisure hours, the basics are well-supplied on site: bathrooms have all mod cons (underfloor heating, free hairdryers and accessible facilities among them) and there’s a washing-up area and wifi connection. Eats can be picked up at the shop or café, or it’s a doddle to waddle off to the local pub (a traditional thatched number 15 minutes’ walk away).

Local attractions

Hold on to your hats, folks: the team on site have many suggestions for a day out round these parts. Beach days, for starters – on the sandy stretch in Bournemouth perhaps, or rubbing shoulders with the swanky folks at Sandbanks, both of which are half an hour away by car. Charmouth, an hour away, is the place for dino-loving kids to ferret out a fossil or two.

Potter down to Poole Quay (half an hour away) for boat trips to Brownsea Island, or drive down to Durdle Door (45 minutes) to swim or kayak through the huge limestone arch. Away from the coast, the New Forest National Park is half an hour away for fresh-air frolics including walks, horse rides and canoe trips.

And keep the kids on best behaviour with the promise of a trip to Peppa Pig World, Monkey World, Adventure Wonderland or Go Ape!, all of which are within a half-hour drive.
