General

  • Fishery-based site on the edge of the stunningly scenic Dorset Downs
  • Half an hour from the sandy beaches of the Jurassic Coast
  • Large tackle shop and plenty of onsite fishing waters to choose from

Hoping for a quiet and peaceful countryside retreat close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Revels Fishery – a family-friendly site less than five minutes’ drive from the Dorset village of Middlemarsh – will tick all your boxes.

Though the site’s also open to guests who aren’t interested in casting a line, it’s simply a dream for angling fans: there are seven fishing waters on site where perch, tench, barbel, carp, catfish, bream and chub are plentiful, and a large tackle shop is just an added lure.

The site’s also well-placed for rambling excursions through the Dorset Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the scenic Dorset countryside. There are loads of bridleways and footpaths to follow right from the site, and walking fuel is a cinch round here too: nab some fresh eggs from the resident chickens and ducks in the morning and boil them up for mid-hike energy boosts.

Not much of a hiker or biker? Head into Middlemarsh to clamber aboard the village’s bus service to Dorchester, Sherborne or (and?) Yeovil for historical sights, shopping and local eats, or just chill on site instead, soaking up the views of the fishing waters and Blackmore Vale.

    The welcome was amazing and nothing was too much trouble, even to the point that there had been so much rain, they found me a patch of hard standing so that i didn't get stuck when leaving.

    I love it here. This is a simple campsite but it has everything you need. The staff are always helpful and friendly, who went out of their way to source charcoal for me when I forgot to bring my own. We're already considering returning in the warmer months.

    Disliked: 

    If I have to put something it's no WiFi but I knew this beforehand and it isn't a criticism.

    Staff very friendly, helpful, welcoming and approachable. We stayed 2 nights with our young boys who are interested in fishing. We bought some bait from the shop there and had a great day fishing. We didn't use the shower block or toilets as we used our own facilities in our caravan but I think they were open. Generous pitch size. Would stay again

Nice enough location, but feels like it needs a refresh.21/09/2020

  • Liked: 

    The location of the campground is nice with a view over the fishing lakes and countryside all around. There is plenty of space and the option of electric hook-up at a reasonable price is a good one.

    Disliked: 

    The site is quite close to a fairly busy road with regular traffic at fairly high speed which creates a continuous background noise. The pitches are mainly on a slight incline making it hard to find a good flat position for a tent. Semi-permanent residents in the site have dogs which use the top of the campground as their toilet - although the owner cleans up quite readily, it isn't a nice thing to find outside your tent or near your car and of course they piss on whatever they come across. The toilet, shower and washing up facilities are tired-looking, grimy and rather minimal (1 shower for men, 1 for women, 2 toilets each), although they are cleaned regularly and stocked with hand soap and paper towels. Walking in the local area (from the site) is available, but local farmers don't seem welcoming and electric fences, overgrown paths and broken styles are common. The owners/operators didn't seem very interested in ensuring that people were enjoying their stays.

From the manager...

Must admit had to look twice to make sure it was us you stayed with!!!. As was generally disheartened by some of these words. Please read the next dozen or so reviews below in complete contradiction to what is said here as we try and go above and beyond for everyone and this has been commented on many times. As for off site we are hardly able to be held responsible for hundreds of miles of Dorset footpaths not on our land. As this is the height of the covid19 year it is well known many elderly and high risk landowners have taken a negative view to people from all over the country walking on their land but if its a marked footpath that we have many of round us and you do not stray and follow the country code it should not be a problem but understandable if you find landowners unsociable if you stray as for the rest onsite comments we already have many of this years visitors booking again for next year. Just a shame you did not talk to us as EVERY visitor we say just ask if we are able to help in anyway.

Local attractions

If standing on the shoulders of giants has always appealed, make immediate tracks for Cerne Abbas, a small village 10 minutes’ drive from the site. As well as pubs serving local beers, the village has access to a National Trust trail leading up to the Cerne Abbas (very anatomically correct) giant.

When 17th-century hill figures simply won’t satisfy history cravings, head instead for Minterne House and Gardens, five minutes from base. The house itself may be closed to casual visitors, but wandering the Capability Brown-style Himalayan gardens should more than make up for that – and the house itself is certainly pretty enough from the outside to warrant repeated gazes on strolls.

Plenty else by way of history is within easy reach – the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Hayes International Motor Museum and the Tank Museum are all within 35 minutes – but taking time to explore nearby towns is a must. Dorchester (15 minutes) is a particular treat, with roman remains, Terracotta warriors, a Tutankhamun exhibition and Thomas Hardy’s birthplace to visit, but the markets, castles and abbey of Sherborne (15 minutes), and the railway centre, toy museum and Montacute House in Yeovil (25 minutes), are also worthy of car trips.

Days on the sand might be all anyone needs on hols, though, so luckily it’s only 30 minutes to the famed Jurassic Coast and to seaside towns like Weymouth, where the lengthy Chesil beach, massive sand sculptures and harbour fort all await.

Must see

  • Hardy's Birthplace (14.1 kilometres)
  • Mapperton House & Gardens (18.3 kilometres)
  • Montacute House (21.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Hardy's Cottage (14.1 kilometres)
  • Max Gate (15.8 kilometres)
