Quiet grass pitches

General

  • Family-run park in the village of Wool, five miles from the coast
  • Under two miles from Monkey World and the Tank Museum
  • Five minutes' walk from train station, bus stops, pubs and shops

If you’re picking holiday reads to bring to Whitemead Caravan Park in Wool, Dorset, there’s one blindingly obvious contender: step forward local lad Mr Thomas Hardy. Reread your old copy of Tess of the D’Urbervilles down here and you may just spot a few similarities between a couple of local buildings and certain locations in the novel.

Even if literary references aren’t your thing, there are many reasons to plant yourselves at this family-run park in the Dorset village of Wool. Chief among these may well be its easy access to a plethora of transport options: make life easy by leaving your car or caravan on site and toddling a few minutes to the train station or bus stops for your days out.

Alternatively, get legs going on the network of local walking and bike paths – heaps of fab attractions are within easy reach on foot or two wheels. Upon your return to the village, reward your efforts with a feed of fish and chips or a restorative pint of local ale at one of the two pubs within staggering distance.

Also within a few minutes’ walk are a butcher and a baker (sadly no candlestick maker) where you can pick up fresh food for the evening barbie. Less poetic but no less convenient are the village’s two supermarkets, and the park’s own mini market, full of handy essentials.

If you didn’t quite manage to tire your kids out during the day, send them over to the playground, or wander over to the games room for a few rounds of pool, darts or table football. Wifi is available if they need a little bit of quiet time alone to play with gadgetry.

The park stretches over five acres so you can always find a shaded spot to settle down with a glass of wine and a Hardy novel (other authors’ works are also permitted..).

    Everything. The location was perfect. The train station to weymouth and poole was a 2 minute walk, the pub the same and the village pub about a 10 minute walk.

    The site owners and workers were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

    The cleanliness during Covid 19 was impeccable. 100%.

    Overall our stay was very enjoyable. The toilets and showers were kept exceptionally clean and staff were friendly enough.

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch wasn’t the best, was mostly dirt rather than grass and the ground was very hard so difficult to put pegs in. Also had caravans pitched on all 4 sides of our pitch so didn’t feel too private.

Excellent site09/11/2020

  • Liked: 

    Warm and friendly welcome upon arrival. COVID hygiene guidance onsite was clearly priority and very well managed. Site was fully booked but felt well spaced out with plenty of room between pitches. Great walk for our dogs accessible from the site and the location was ideal, with loads of local amenities within walking distance. Perfect location to explore the towns and coastal sights the area has to offer.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing, we will be re-booking for next year!

Local attractions

Five miles south are the sea and the Jurassic Coast’s most famed attractions – Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Other options for days out include cycling around Wareham Forest followed by boating on the River Frome from Wareham (10 minutes’ drive), or a trip on the Swanage Railway half an hour away, or – well, it’s safe to say you won’t get bored...
