Henstridge Golf and Leisure: Scenic location with fishing lake

General

  • Well-maintained countryside site in the scenic Blackmore Vale
  • A 15-minute drive from Shaftesbury and 20 from Sherborne
  • Fishing lake, nine-hole golf course and clubhouse with bar/restaurant

Up for coarse fishing, fossil hunting, sea kayaking and a quick round of golf? Head over to Henstridge Golf and Leisure for quiet stays in the Somerset countryside surrounded by much fab stuff to do.

This peaceful and well-maintained site is in the stunning Blackmore Vale, a five-minute drive from the village of Henstridge and 15 minutes from the town of Shaftesbury. You might not get that far though, when the 70-acre park boasts its own well-stocked coarse fishing lake, along with a nine-hole golf course and a clubhouse with a bar and restaurant…

And how might your days here pan out? Perhaps a full English and a fortifying coffee or two before you amble over to the lake for a morning of landing carp, roach and tench… then maybe a bite of lunch before perfecting your swing on the driving range and the putting green, followed by a leisurely nine holes…? If all that sporting action in the outdoors has tired you out, put up your feet in the bar and watch someone else running about on the bigscreen TV.

If you do want to stretch your legs, it’s a 20-minute drive to Sherborne for tours of the ancient abbey and the museum, wanders round the castles old and new and maybe a spot of kayaking or fishing on the lake.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The campground/park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dog Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

A cable measuring at least 25 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

Electricity is metered on site at £5 per 33.33 kWh and must be paid on site using a pre-paid topup card. There is a £10 deposit required for the card, which will be refunded on departure when returning the card.

Wifi is only available in the clubhouse and outside seating area.

Fishing is currently suspended due to low water levels.

    The site was quiet and had a wonderful vista over the golf course. Showers and Toilets were clean, and there was plenty of hot water. The staff were friendly. The adjoining golf course was perfect for an evening walk before adjourning to bed.

Thank you for your comments. Really pleased you all enjoyed your stay.. There is lighting around the front of the building on the way to the toilets but not around the back way as when it is busy we do have campers out that way.

Directions

Local attractions

If you’re after ancient monuments, it’s half an hour’s drive from the site to the gigantic Cerne Abbas chalk figure and 50 minutes to Stonehenge.

For sights even older, it's an hour's drive to the fossil-strewn Jurassic Coast, where you can combine kayak trips around the cliffs with amateur archaeology on the beaches at popular spots like Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, or walk sections of the South West Coast Path.

It’s a similar distance to bigger coastal towns like Weymouth, where aquariums and skate parks combine with wildlife walks round the RSPB Reserves of Radipole Lake and Lodmoor, or to Poole, where you can mix harbour cruises and seal-spotting sea safaris with the flumes, rides and slides of Splashdown waterpark.

Heading inland, Bath has been drawing the crowds since Roman times and is well worth the hour-long trip: tour the old Roman baths, take a dip, soak or steam in the spa waters yourself, and top it off by making a bespoke brew at Bath Gin distillery.

For cycling fans, the Bath Two Tunnels Circuit runs under and around the city on a 13-mile loop, while for those more fond of gentle strolls, few sites are prettier than the Prior Park Landscape Garden, designed by Capability Brown.

Must see

  • Stourhead House and Garden (14.2 kilometres)
  • Haynes International Motor Museum (14.9 kilometres)
  • Fleet Air Arm Museum (19.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Stourhead (13.9 kilometres)
