Misty Meadows

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Simple site by a lake and river on a working Dorset farm
  • A quarter of an hour's drive from Lulworth Cove and Dorchester
  • Firepits and barbecues welcome; logs and essentials sold on site

An apt name, Misty Meadows – this small pop-up site on a busy working dairy farm just outside the peaceful Dorset village of Owermoigne is regularly graced by atmospheric misty dawns and dusks. The meadows themselves are set in a very sheltered location, with a meandering river on the one side and a small lake on the other.

This spot is an excellent place for family time without any electricity or wifi to distract you, but don't worry – entertainment is provided by the ducks, swans, geese, frogs, deer, dragonflies and other creatures you'll be sharing the site with.

Children can paddle in the river here on hot days (under adult supervision, of course), while elsewhere there are footpaths that start right on the edge of the farm that can take you deep into the local countryside. Barbecues are allowed, so make sure you bring your marshmallows and a comfy chair for stargazing. Some firepits are available to hire if you haven’t got your own, and logs and other essentials are usually sold on site.

Misty Meadows is just under a mile and a half from a well-stocked farm shop in the centre of Owermoigne. Crossways, a slightly larger village with more amenities, is a mile and a half in the other direction.

Lovely peaceful site09/05/2022

    Lovely stay at Misty Meadows. Very peaceful with lots of space between pitches. Perfect for visiting the Jurassic Coast.

    The firepits you could hire were brilliant with a hanging grill to cook over the firepit with. Drinking water taps at regular intervals around the site. Didn't use the showers or toilets as we had our own onboard but they looked nice and clean.

    Very friendly welcome. Was great to hear the owl hooting in the trees at night. They also have a small van that serves coffee, tea and cakes every morning. All in all a lovely couple of days and will go again next year

    This is the second time we have stayed here, it’s such a beautiful place. You get to pitch where you like with so much space. We chose the weir meadow this time and it was beautiful right by the little river. We hired the fire pit and brought some logs which kept us warm in the evening. Showers are really good and there’s now a washing up station which is so handy.
    It’s such a peaceful and serene place to be, at night you can just gaze at the stars while you watch for bats flying around and listen for the owls at night and in the morning you can hear the sound of the cockerel and the cows from the dairy farm. This is my go to camp site and one I will return to year after year,
    Amy is lovely and there to greet you with a smile and nothing too much trouble
    See you next year Misty Meadows

Flat pitches, wonderful owners, clear skies, river and woodland09/03/2022

    The site was very peaceful surrounded by woodland and a river. We chose the weir meadow which meant we needed to load up a wheelbarrow to transport everything from the car. The pitches were flat and the field was so big that we were able to camp in our own little peaceful area. No light pollution meant that we had a sky full of stars at night time. We loved relaxing at the fire pit at night and listening to the water running in the river. The owners were the most friendly and accommodating I've ever come across in 20 years of camping. I wanted to rest and recharge and I definately managed that. We were a short drive to so many beautiful places and spent days on the beach at Kimmeridge and Lulworth. We'll certainly be back!

    Everything was lovely, we pitched up in the corner of the meadow so the kids were able to play in the water. All the facilities were clean and easily accessible. Loved that there were wheelbarrows to make it nice and easy to move all our stuff. We lost our fire pit so rented one there and it was cheap to rent and perfect. Our whole family loved our stay there!

    Amazing campsite in a glorious area! Staff were so friendly, communication was excellent and they were very accommodating. The site was spacious and quiet, and all the facilities were well maintained. Huge perks - surprise coffee truck in the morning, and the fire pits available for hire with a grill shelf. Gorgeous stay and will hopefully return to the Jurassic coast soon! Worked really well for our trip with friends.

Thankyou for your comments. We only had the coffee trailer on the bank holiday weekend but if we do have it again next year I will try and find a different position on the site so as not to disturb campers.

    Shame that all of the rubbish was collected in a skip, would be great to see some recycling.

From the manager...

Thankyou for your review. I agree and I would’ve liked to have had recycling bins but I contacted the local council and a few other waste companies and I couldn’t get anyone to collect recycling for the 1 month we are open. I will research this a bit more for next year.

Directions

Local attractions

This is cider country, so a visit to the Mill House Cider Museum (five minutes' walk) is in order – and, given how much apple-fermenting expertise there is around the place, it'd be almost rude not to pick up a few local ciders at the gift shop while you're at it. Also within walking distance is the Dorset Collection of Clocks (five minutes' walk), a top collection of timepieces housed in the same building.

Lots of top Dorset beaches and seaside spots like Lulworth Cove (15 minutes' drive) and Weymouth (20 minutes) are within easy reach by road, so there are plenty of opportunities for getting out to see the Jurassic Coast along the South West Coast Path at Misty Meadows.

Inland, other top picks include the Tank Museum (15 minutes) with its rip-roaring military displays and Monkey World (15 minutes), one of the largest ape rescue centres in Europe. You might also like to pay a visit to historic Dorchester (15 minutes), Dorset's county town in the middle of Hardy Country, or to see the village of Corfe Castle (25 minutes), home to an impressive Norman fortress, a steam railway and some of the best tea rooms in the area.

Must see

  • The Tank Museum (6.1 kilometres)
  • Hardy's Birthplace (6.8 kilometres)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (8.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Clouds Hill (6.6 kilometres)
  • Hardy's Cottage (6.8 kilometres)
