Grass pitches

General

  • Peaceful rural site by the Frome river, 10 minutes' drive from Wool
  • Half an hour's drive from the beaches of the Jurassic Coast
  • Less than 10 minutes from Monkey World and the Tank Museum

Planning some Purbeck pottering? Pick a pitch at Luckfordwood Caravan and Camping, 10 minutes' drive from Wool, and you’ll be in a prime position for poking around this pretty corner of Dorset.

Bring along your boots and bikes, for there are some great walks and cycle rides to be had in the area around the site (including the 25-minute trot to the local pub – huzzah for a path that ends in pints). Kids rolling their eyes at the idea of rural rambles? The twin attractions of Monkey World and the Tank Museum are 10 minutes away in the car, and there’s heaps more days out within half an hour: beaches, sea kayaking, steam train rides and an ancient castle among them.

Life on site meanders along at a peaceful pace – it’s a most serene setting, surrounded by woodland and with the Frome river flowing by, and there’s plenty of space to walk dogs or stoke up a fire (small firepits only, ta – you wouldn’t want to set the place alight now). Take a quiet wander around the grounds and you may just spot the local deer herd popping by to graze.

Naturally, this chilled vibe doesn’t lend itself to heaps of noisy activity, so facilities here have been kept to just the basics: the smart modern toilet block has loos, showers and a washing-up area and is proudly scrubbed clean on a daily basis.

Please note

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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

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

Please note you need to bring your own leads if you book an electric hook-up.

    We had a lovely stay here. The owners were fantastic and so friendly. The facilities were very good and clean every time we used them and were what we expected from a campsite. We stayed in a tent for 2 nights and had the choice of where we wanted to stay. We had trouble with our blow up bed and was just going out to buy a new one when the owners offered us 2 camp beds to use for our stay, which were in excellent condition and it was very kind of them to do so, and it saved us a lot of time as big shops are hard to come by around here. We hired a fire-pit for both of our nights and the owners got it all set up for us when we were out for the day ready to use for when we got back. (£10 a night - it's well worth it). We had so much wood given to us we could of had it on till dawn if we wanted to.

    It is situated in a brilliant area as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door were only a 15 minute drive away and this campsite proved to be a very useful home ground for us. Weymouth was about a 35 minute drive which isn't terrible considering how much there is to do down there to turn it into a great day out. Plenty of pubs around in a short driving distance so food was never an issue. Overall for a trip away in the UK, this campsite is a great place to call home for a few days whilst you enjoy the surrounding area.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing we had trouble with was getting to the campsite, with the postcode that was given, our maps told us we were at our destination about a mile too early. At the time we were confused but it was just one long road so we carried on driving and found it easily enough so very minute just a minute of confusion.

    The owners. They were the best thing about the place. The two stars are for them.

    Disliked: 

    Scruffy entrance with old rusting vehicles scattered around, similar to a scrap yard. The pitches were rough uncut ground, the facilities poor-need for a deep clean of the toilets.

Local attractions

If you’re into all things vehicular, start your local exploration at The Tank Museum, 10 minutes’ drive away – the collection of more than 300 tanks (including Little Willie, the world’s first) is renowned as the world’s finest. Follow up with a steam-powered ride on the Swanage Railway (25 minutes away).

As you ride the rails, you’ll pass the ruins of Corfe Castle, built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror – it’s about 15 minutes from the site if you’d like to take a closer look. A mile or so up the road from the castle is the cute Wareham Bears, where more than 200 teddies live in a model village. For real-life animal antics, take the 10-minute drive to Monkey World to see the apes that found TV fame in the UK as stars of the Monkey Life.

And one can't ignore the Jurassic Coast – it’ll take you 20 minutes or so to drive to some of its most stunning sights, including Lulworth Cove, Man O’War beach and the giant stone arch Durdle Door. A walk on the South West Coast Path is an excellent way to take it all in, or you could try paddleboarding, sea kayaking or coasteering to get a different view.

Must see

  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (3.5 kilometres)
  • Lulworth Castle & Park (4.6 kilometres)
  • The Tank Museum (4.9 kilometres)
