Bluebell Meadow Campsite: Grassy pitches

General

  • Peaceful family-run site in Dorset 10 minutes’ drive from Poole
  • A 20-minute drive from the Jurassic coast; 40 minutes from New Forest
  • Pub within walking distance; more places to eat in the local village

From paddling along Poole harbour on a paddleboard to touring the Jurassic coast, there’s much to muck into from Bluebell Meadow Campsite. The peaceful place is 10 minutes’ drive from Poole and 20 minutes from the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (home to the chalk Old Harry Rocks, half an hour’s drive, if that’s top of your list). So, you’ll be well-based to jam-pack your hiatus full of activities on Dorset’s beaches or the surrounding countryside.

Touch down in the pocket of farmland surrounded by trees… this family-run site has been set up by avid campers and therefore, attention has been paid to the clean facilities. There are plenty of friendly faces around to point you in the direction of the golf course, 20 minutes’ walk away, or cycling and hiking ways throughout the countryside.

Perhaps you might be thinking of visiting the New Forest National Park (40 minutes’ drive) for its trails, gardens, museums and wildlife… the Isle of Purbeck (25 minutes’ drive) for its coastal scenery, wetlands, forestry and farmlands… the scenic Arne (25 minutes) at the northern end of the isle… or Poole Harbour (25 minutes’ drive) for its canoeing, kitesurfing and paddleboarding activities.

As for those of you after some good pub grub, there are several in Lytchett Minster and Upton (five minutes’ drive for a rather pretty village with a minster), with the closest a 25-minute walk away. And for a tasty treat or two, there’s also a popular café five minutes’ drive away.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Group bookings of 2 or more units (e.g. tent, touring caravan, motorhome or accommodation hire) travelling together are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Please note that the shower facilities are unisex.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No charcoal barbecues allowed.

A cable measuring at least 15 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

To help combat the road noise we have planted over 300 laurel bushes last year, when these have fully grown they will form a noise barrier to the road, unfortunately this will take time.

    Small tidy, quiet site.

    Disliked: 

    Slight smell from the septic tanks/waste filters

From the manager...

The campsite is in a rural area and has an operational farm that surrounds it. The farm grows crops all year round and as a consequence you will get rural smells we have no control over this as the farm is owned and operated by others. This is not sewerage as you state, all connections and tanks are check constantly to make sure that they are operating correctly

    The owner was very security minded. The site was locked at 10.30pm.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments, hopefully see you again soon.

The gates are locked and secured at 10-10.30pm for the security of the whole site as we are in a secluded rural location, we also have many young families, single mums and single ladies staying with us, for the very reason of our security. During the day the combination lock is used to make sure that the site is secure for all.

    Very clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Not the campsite for me, but should have checked the map more closely as busy A35 but also with a sewage ingestion system with a loud continuous hum throughout the night.

From the manager...

Thanks for the comments. Sorry that you did not enjoy your time with us.

Upon your arrival you stated that you did not want to pitch on the space that we had allocated, we showed you a further 4 pitches which you also did not like and then you chose to pitch your tent under the trees near the sewerage treatment plants, which we advised against. I am not sure what else we could have done to improve your stay.

An enclosure has now been built around the sewerage treatment plants to deaden the noise.

Thanks for the great comments and we are glad you had a great time with us.

Sorry about the moles, these will be dealt with when we close at the end of October and then the whole camping field will be rolled flat.

Local attractions

Beaches, wildlife havens or historical sites first? There are bucket loads of the former, from Bournemouth’s pier and sandy seafront (half an hour’s drive), the three miles of soft sand from South Haven Point to Old Harry Rocks at Studland beach (half an hour) to the shell-shaped Lulworth Cove (half an hour), formed over millions of years … hence the many swimming spots.

You’ll get history and the coast in one shot in Swanage (half an hour), a Victorian seaside resort, and Weymouth (40 minutes) too, thanks to its Georgian seafront. History-wise, there’s also the National Trust’s Kingston Lacy (15 minutes), Corfe Castle (15 minutes), literary Dorchester (25 minutes) or the heritage Poole Cockle Trail (10 minutes) around the old town.

As for that wildlife spotting, well, top spots include RSPB Arne’s nature reserve (20 minutes), Monkey World’s ape rescue centre (15 minutes) and Brownsea Island (15 minutes’ drive and 35 minutes’ boat ride). There’s a nature reserve (along with beaches and harbour) in Christchurch (35 minutes) too or Upton Country Park (five minutes) for woodlands.

To round things off, perhaps you’ll want to fit in Farmer Palmer's Farm Park (10 minutes’ walk), Splashdown's waterpark (15 minutes) too.

Must see

  • Kingston Lacy House and Gardens (5.6 miles)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (6.3 miles)
