General

  • Unusual outdoor accommodation on an east Dorset farm
  • Just off the A31 and A350; 15 minutes' drive from Poole and Blandford
  • Firepit, outdoor furniture, woodlands and a spacious communal marquee

It's a bit bananas, but it works – with converted vehicles, a spherical treehouse and a handsomely furnished hut to its name, this peaceful east Dorset farm is home to some of the kookiest accommodation around. Down to spend the night in these off-the-wall digs? Then make for Moonacre Campsite, a laidback holiday spot just off the A31 and A350.

This fably scenic site is in a secluded valley location between the towns of Poole and Blandford Forum (both 15 minutes' drive). Don't let the outlandish accommodation have you fooled – the folk that run this show are particularly practically-minded, having set up essential facilities like toilets, showers and a water point for guests. There's also plenty of outdoor furniture, open-air games and a communal marquee for chilling in.

Moonacre Campsite is especially well-suited to nature fans: the woodlands that fringe the site regularly rustle with the sound of deer, rabbits and pheasants (other critters like rare red squirrels and wading birds can be spotted on nearby Brownsea Island). The whole place is fenced for extra security and peace of mind.

Sturminster Marshall (five minutes' drive) is the nearest place for pitstops at the supermarket or pharmacy; the village also has a golf course that welcomes players of all ages if you fancy a spot of putting.

Memorable 2 night stay04/17/2021

    Bertie the bus was perfect for a 2 night stay in Dorset. It had BBQ and fire pit which we used both evenings. The bedrooms were warm with electric heaters and everything we needed was provided for. The bus was pitched at the top of the campsite with plenty of room for my 10yo to kick a football about. The pitch gets both the evening and morning sun. A really lovely stay.

Local attractions

Poole (15 minutes' drive) is the nearest sizeable spot, and oh what a town it is – with golden sands, bike hire and ferries over to Brownsea Island, there's much to be said for just turning up and seeing what takes your fancy. Those who like things a bit more organised can instead book a boat trip out to Old Harry Rocks, set off on the self-guided Cockle Trail around town or embark on an epic journey along the South West Coast Path.

Also of interest is Blandford Forum (15 minutes), home to the Blandford Museum, the hopsy Hall and Woodhouse Brewery and the sweet-smelling Keyneston Mill, a 50-acre botanic garden dedicated entirely to aromatic plants.

After a good whiff of the herbs and a full-bodied ale or two, take the kids for a spot of aquatic adventure at Splashdown waterpark (15 minutes), investigate the high ropes course and miniature railway at Moors Valley Country Park (25 minutes) or stick close to the site and explore Kingston Lacy (five minutes), an aristocratic house with landscaped grounds run by the National Trust.

  • Kingston Lacy House and Gardens (4.0 kilometers)
