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.

  • Bluebell fully-serviced concrete and grass caravan site

  • Liked: 

    Reasonably close to the ferry terminal at Poole.
    Reasonable size pitches with grass areas in between each.
    Water, elect and drainage on the pitch.

    Disliked: 

    The site is close to the main road from Poole and there is continual traffic noise. It is not too severe but it is noticeable, especially at night/early morning.
    The site has a locked field gate with fiddly, combination lock which is a nuisance.
    The hard standing motorhome pitches are made with crushed builder's hardcore/rubble and not pleasant to sit out on, however the grass areas alongside are comfortable.
    There is no privacy, trees or hedging between the pitches. No shade.
    The facilities are ok but limited in number and really inadequate for the number of pitches on site.
    No staff on site, we had to phone for someone to come and check us in.
    No WiFi

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments.

On our website and Pitchup's website it clearly states that we are a secure site without a reception, the gates are on a combination lock for everyone's safety and security. As the owner, who lives 50m away from the site, we have staff available at all times, you waited on longer than five minutes at our gate before we arrived to welcome you and to show you to your pitch.

We are doing all we can to combat the road noise with extra planting of trees, shrubs and laurel bushes. These will take time to grow but they will help in the long term.

The idea of the pitch set up is that you park your van on the hardstanding and use the grassed are to sit or put up an awing. We are a small site with only 5 hardstanding pitches and 20 tent pitches and limited space, so in order to maximise pitch space we have not planted any privacy screens, but this has not been an issue before.

In terms of the facilities that we provide, we have supplied more toilets and showers than most sites of our size. If you wanted a site with all the facilities that you want, then you should have booked at a larger campsite and paid for those facilities.

    Fantastically clean facilities that were really close to the pitch sites which was amazing for little children to use.
    Staff incredibly polite, welcoming and friendly.
    Pitch size was large and fairly even and flat.

    Disliked: 

    You must be aware that the site is parallel to the A35 and next to what seems a farming area with tractors and heavy machinery working late into the night. I am a light sleeper and there was noise well past 10.30pm. Consequently, getting to sleep was really tough with passing cars on the A35 and the farming equipment. The only thing stopping it being 4 star is the noise.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments

We are doing all we can to combat the road noise with extra planting of trees, shrubs and laurel bushes. These will take time to grow but they will help in the long term.

At your welcome to the site we do explain that we have an operational farm surrounding us and it also says on Pitchup that we are surrounded by farmland. Unfortunately the farmer had to work two of the fields near the site early on Sunday morning which made all the noise but as we live next to the campsite we didn't hear any farming noise late at night. We are sorry if it ruined your Sunday morning.

    Being asked to move twice. Having to pay more to sleep in a vw van than if we had taken the van but slept in a tent. Bonkers.

From the manager...

Thanks for the comments.

Unfortunately you booked a tent pitch rather than a campervan pitch, this is clearly shown on the booking pages of Picthup. We only allow campervans, motorhomes, caravans or trailer tents on our hard standing pitches this is part of our operational license, which we have to adhere to in order to operate. This was explained to you upon arrival and it was fortunate that we had a spare hardstanding space for you to use.

A note to all if you wish to sleep in a campervan, motorhome, caravan or trailer tent on our site then please book a hardstanding pitch and not a grass pitch. Our grass pitches are for tents only.

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay, we are doing all we can to combat the road noise with extra planting of trees, shrubs and laurel bushes. These will take time to grow but they will help in the long term.

The pitch you were on originally shown was behind our full caravan bays, which help to deaden the noise when there are only a few tents in, but you asked to be moved to an open part of the campsite as you said you want to be away from other people.

    The site was clean and well presented and was in a fairly quiet area... until race night started with cars and motorbikes along the road next to the site.

    Disliked: 

    The noise of car and bikes. I wasn't to keen on the attitude of the owner we rang up about 9.30 ish to say we would arrive after 10.30 the lock up time we were aware of the lady did say let us know if you are going to be after 10.30 as we lock up for the night, they already had a combination padlock on the gate which was kept locked at all times so I was unsure how the gate was going to be locked up more...
    When I rang up the gentleman said "well what time will you be back" said with an attitude. I said I was unsure as I was seeing friends in the area, "well can you just give me a time some of us have to get up at 5 in the morning to run a camp site".
    I said about 11.30 ......oh right then .......we will never step near this place again.
    If I spoke to my guests like this my guest house would be empty.

From the manager...

Thanks for the comments.

The gates are locked and secured at 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. We also do this to reduce vehicle movement on site after 10.30pm to allow all campers to have a quiet night without car doors slamming or car lights shining in on their tents. During the day the combination lock is used to make sure that the site is secure for all. This was explained to you upon arrival.

I am sure, as a guest house owner you have similar rules at your establishment, that your guest are asked to follow for the good of everyone.

    I can highly recommend Bluebell Meadow.
    Lee made us very welcome and he was a very good host.
    The pitch size was enormous and flat.
    The facilities are very good with clean toilets and showers and the washing up is the best I have used(everything provided you only need a tea towel).
    I did not find the road noise excessive(you would expect some next to a main road).
    We would come again and recommend to friends.

It was great to have you and your friends to stay with us for a week or so and we are glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Its great to hear that you liked our facilities and that you would recommend Bluebell Meadow to others.

You and your group are welcome any time and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

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 (9.0 kilometres)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (10.2 kilometres)
