Luckford Wood Caravan and Camping: Grass pitches

General

  • Peaceful rural site by the Frome river, 10 minutes' drive from Wool
  • Half an hour's drive from the beaches of the Jurassic Coast
  • Less than 10 minutes from Monkey World and the Tank Museum

Planning some Purbeck pottering? Pick a pitch at Luckfordwood Caravan and Camping, 10 minutes' drive from Wool, and you’ll be in a prime position for poking around this pretty corner of Dorset.

Bring along your boots and bikes, for there are some great walks and cycle rides to be had in the area around the site (including the 25-minute trot to the local pub – huzzah for a path that ends in pints). Kids rolling their eyes at the idea of rural rambles? The twin attractions of Monkey World and the Tank Museum are 10 minutes away in the car, and there’s heaps more days out within half an hour: beaches, sea kayaking, steam train rides and an ancient castle among them.

Life on site meanders along at a peaceful pace – it’s a most serene setting, surrounded by woodland and with the Frome river flowing by, and there’s plenty of space to walk dogs or stoke up a fire (small firepits only, ta – you wouldn’t want to set the place alight now). Take a quiet wander around the grounds and you may just spot the local deer herd popping by to graze.

Naturally, this chilled vibe doesn’t lend itself to heaps of noisy activity, so facilities here have been kept to just the basics: the smart modern toilet block has loos, showers and a washing-up area and is proudly scrubbed clean on a daily basis.

    Lovely clean and well-marked site. Good choice of pitches. Fresh water and fire precaution points at regular intervals. Owners friendly and sold us wood and fire pit hire on first night. Modern toilet, shower and washing up block with plenty of facilities. Beautiful surroundings with lots of walks and wildlife to see. We walked to Wool (approx 2.5 miles) and had a nice meal at the Black Bear pub.

    Disliked: 

    Showers were a litle slow and push button operated, meaning temperature fluctuated and showers went off before button was pressed again. I don't like push button showers because of this.
    It would have been good if the owners checked in with campers a little more throughout stay, especially to see how they were doing with quite strong winds and rainfall.

    Quiet and friendly site in the middle of the gorgeous Dorset countryside. Lots of room to move around and find a secluded corner to yourself. Good facilities. Best bottle wash ever! Excellent hand dryer in the facilities but not great when people used it at 4am as it is a tad loud!! Excellent pub (The Bear) in the local village - you need a cab or it's a 40 minute walk - and can strongly recommend Garrisons cabs as nothing was too much trouble!! We will back :-)

Local attractions

If you’re into all things vehicular, start your local exploration at The Tank Museum, 10 minutes’ drive away – the collection of more than 300 tanks (including Little Willie, the world’s first) is renowned as the world’s finest. Follow up with a steam-powered ride on the Swanage Railway (25 minutes away).

As you ride the rails, you’ll pass the ruins of Corfe Castle, built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror – it’s about 15 minutes from the site if you’d like to take a closer look. A mile or so up the road from the castle is the cute Wareham Bears, where more than 200 teddies live in a model village. For real-life animal antics, take the 10-minute drive to Monkey World to see the apes that found TV fame in the UK as stars of the Monkey Life.

And one can't ignore the Jurassic Coast – it’ll take you 20 minutes or so to drive to some of its most stunning sights, including Lulworth Cove, Man O’War beach and the giant stone arch Durdle Door. A walk on the South West Coast Path is an excellent way to take it all in, or you could try paddleboarding, sea kayaking or coasteering to get a different view.

Must see

  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (3.5 kilometres)
  • Lulworth Castle & Park (4.6 kilometres)
  • The Tank Museum (4.9 kilometres)

National Trust
