Whitemead Caravan Park: Quiet grass pitches

General

  • Family-run park in the village of Wool, five miles from the coast
  • Under two miles from Monkey World and the Tank Museum
  • Five minutes' walk from train station, bus stops, pubs and shops

If you’re picking holiday reads to bring to Whitemead Caravan Park in Wool, Dorset, there’s one blindingly obvious contender: step forward local lad Mr Thomas Hardy. Reread your old copy of Tess of the D’Urbervilles down here and you may just spot a few similarities between a couple of local buildings and certain locations in the novel.

Even if literary references aren’t your thing, there are many reasons to plant yourselves at this family-run park in the Dorset village of Wool. Chief among these may well be its easy access to a plethora of transport options: make life easy by leaving your car or caravan on site and toddling a few minutes to the train station or bus stops for your days out.

Alternatively, get legs going on the network of local walking and bike paths – heaps of fab attractions are within easy reach on foot or two wheels. Upon your return to the village, reward your efforts with a feed of fish and chips or a restorative pint of local ale at one of the two pubs within staggering distance.

Also within a few minutes’ walk are a butcher and a baker (sadly no candlestick maker) where you can pick up fresh food for the evening barbie. Less poetic but no less convenient are the village’s two supermarkets, and the park’s own mini market, full of handy essentials.

If you didn’t quite manage to tire your kids out during the day, send them over to the playground, or wander over to the games room for a few rounds of pool, darts or table football. Wifi is available if they need a little bit of quiet time alone to play with gadgetry.

The park stretches over five acres so you can always find a shaded spot to settle down with a glass of wine and a Hardy novel (other authors’ works are also permitted..).

    We have stayed several times now & have found it to be a clean, quiet & peaceful well run site. The site has a friendly & peaceful atmosphere due to the friendliness & helpfulness of the people who run it. You have Wool village on your doorstep to stretch your legs
    As well as the village shop & bakery, as well as the Black Bear pub. You have the Ship Inn public house literally on the doorstep where you get discount if you are staying on Whitemead. Both serve food which is of a high standard which is reasonablely priced.
    Lastly both Monkey World & The tank Museum attractions being a a couple of miles away, as well as Bournemouth, Poole & Weymouth being easy to get to using the trai service which runs through Wool itself (between half an hour to a hour journey times dependant which destination you are going too)

    Excellent secure site with great, clean facilities. I really like the way the main site is laid out - not regimented straight lines of vehicles. Staff really friendly and helpful. Great location with easy access to Lulworth or Weymouth or Poole/Bournemouth. Lovely little walk down to the river Frome for the dogs.

    Shame it's not open all year, but will definitely be back next season.

From the manager...

Thank you Terry for your review! With regards to your comment regarding the toilets being cleaned, we are happy to let you use the facilities if needed in an emergency - obviously they need to be cleaned, but they aren't 'locked off.

We hope to see you again soon!

Five miles south are the sea and the Jurassic Coast’s most famed attractions – Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Other options for days out include cycling around Wareham Forest followed by boating on the River Frome from Wareham (10 minutes’ drive), or a trip on the Swanage Railway half an hour away, or – well, it’s safe to say you won’t get bored...
