Litton Lakes is a family-run Dorset lakeside site with spacious pitches on a working farm in the pretty village of Litton Cheney.
The area is something of a walkers’ paradise, with direct access to a network of footpaths and bridleways, and a dog-walking field just next to the site for any four-legged pals that haven’t had enough of a stretch. If you’d rather set out on two wheels you may like to note that National Cycle Route 2 passes the entrance to the site (and it’s suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities).
Back at base after any such outings, guests can sign up for more activity with paddleboarding and kayaking on the lake, do a bit of fishing, take a dip in the fresh water or simply settle down to admire the far-reaching countryside views (firepits can be hired and logs are available to buy if you need a bit of warmth to help you dry off after a dip).
And if what you really need is some sustenance? The site’s own Purple Turtle Café should be your first port of call, for splendid cakes accompanied by cups of tea and freshly brewed coffee by the lake. You’re also welcome to light barbecues for bigger meals, or you might like to take a stroll down to the local pub, five minutes’ walk away.
This is a peaceful and family-friendly site that’s particularly attractive for those with an interest in photography as there’s some gorgeous scenery to snap nearby. It’s also in an area of very low light pollution, so stargazing should be on the schedule too if possible.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.
Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.
This site has no on-site shower facilities.
The café is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.
Coronavirus update: please note that the Purple Turtle café will be closed for the remainder of 2020.
