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..).

    Covid-19 issues - shop wasn’t open. We arrived on the Friday afternoon staying until Sunday - got a phone call Friday evening informing us that we had to leave Saturday by 10am as they were closing the site which was rather frustrating. Would’ve preferred a pitch with more shelter to wind.

    Disliked: 

    The press button for the water in the ladies shower which cut off the water flow after a couple of minutes. The men had a continuous flow of water from the shower, so why couldn't the women's be the same.
    Minimal road and railway noise.

    On our arrival, we found all the staff very happy, friendly and polite. The site is extraordinarily clean and the pitches are well kept, daily cleaning of the shower / toilets and washing up areas did not put us off. Our 2 night stay was thoroughly enjoyed as it was the first time in our new caravan. Even the regular train service did not disturb us as we were the third pitch in by the entrance.
    Games room is a little small, with limited options, but we made the most of it and daughter enjoyed learning the game of pool!!!! whilst in there we were not disturbed by staff.
    Staff always on hand if necessary. we will definitely be returning next season well done guy's 100% paul & kate

    Wifi was not discussed on arrival, and only found out about it after reading the booklet we were given.

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...
