Woods, a stream and a lake. Check. Forest rambles and beaches within half an hour’s drive. Check. Hot tub, sauna, swimming pool… is this place for real? Yup, it's Horton Camping and Glamping in Dorset. Whether you're looking to get away for a relaxing few days with your partner, or wanting to explore the fabulous Dorset countryside with your family, Horton Camping and Glamping Resort is a high-end pick in a top spot.
This most-scenic option has a mix of forest and open space set over seven acres for accommodation and activities, and everyone has access to the hot tub and swimming pool open in high season.
If swims and submerges stoke up your appetite, head to the barbecue area to cook over coals or use your own gas cooker (provided with bell tents and safari tents for outside use only). The terrace bar is also available for refreshments to keep the family cool on a hot day.
This site is also an oasis for wildlife – keep a beady eye out for roe deer, foxes and rabbits flitting about in the surrounds. And if you’d like to do your own scampering, the resort is within 15 minutes' drive of the New Forest and 30 to 35 minutes from the seaside towns of Poole and Bournemouth.
Excellently kept amenities (the attention to detail really does reach every nook and cranny here) are also a highlight of this park, including washrooms and showers with toiletries provided.
Horton Camping and Glamping Resort is not a nudist site but has a sister park, Rivendell Outdoor Club, next door for folk who prefer naturist hols.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
The outdoor swimming pool is open between 04/10 and 09/29 (subject to weather conditions).

Just over half an hour's drive away, Poole has plenty to offer day-trippers with its sandy beaches, handsome old town and harbour area; it's also the departure point for boat trips out to Brownsea Island, a wooded sanctuary teeming with wildlife. If this gives you a taste for seafaring, take a cruise along the Jurassic Coast (or even a ferry to Jersey).
Those after bigger thrills in the water should aim for Splashdown waterpark (30 minutes' drive), which has pools and over a dozen indoor and outdoor flumes and rides. There's more of that inland at Dorset Waterpark near Corfe Castle (45 minutes), and who could go near Corfe without going round the very fine old castle too?
For more ancient history, the isle of Purbeck (an hour) is fab for fossil hunters and the famed monument of Stonehenge is 45 minutes from the site.
For petrolheads, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu (45 minutes) has a collection of classic vehicles to gaze on enviously before you get back in your own. This is fine road trip country as well, with attractive old market towns like Wimborne Minster and stately homes such as Kingston Lacy within 20 minutes.
