General

  • Adults-only site in a central Dorset spot close to Holtwood Forest
  • A 10-minute drive to Wimborne Minster; 20 minutes to New Forest
  • Good access to local walking trails; two pubs within two miles

Snowdrop Barn Meadow is a family-run site in the Dorset countryside, among fields close to Holtwood Forest and about 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of Wimborne Minster.

This is a splendidly peaceful location that’s a proper little wildlife haven, with deer often spotted in the neighbouring fields (but no kids spotted, as this is an adults-only site). There are plenty of footpaths and forest trails to wander nearby for a closer look at the local surrounds (and a couple of pubs within two miles if you’re equally interested in the local beer and something to eat).

The central Dorset location is a handy one for getting out and about to all sort of days out, whether you fancy strolling through a National Trust estate, taking to the trails of the New Forest or hitting the beaches of Bournemouth and Poole (or hopping on a boat to Brownsea Island). There’s also plenty to do in the local town of Wimborne Minster – including lots of good places to eat and drink.

Facilities at this quiet site are fairly minimal but guests will have access to portaloos and free wifi and are allowed to bring along barbecues and dogs (just don’t let the two get too close to each other…).

Excellent peaceful site; super clean facilities and v friendly staff.09/20/2020

    I loved this campsite - it was so peaceful and tranquil. The facilities were excellent and super clean! There were some lovely walks from the campsite and I understand the local pubs were great however I didn't visit this time.

    My friend was also camping in a campervan too and we enjoyed the beautiful area and peace and quiet - we were able to do our own outdoor yoga session in the morning which was fantastic. We stayed at the end of season so only a few people were camping but the site is small and so would never get very busy and cramped - plenty of room for everyone. There is a local community shop a short distance away which was fantastic too.

    Disliked: 

    Only thing missing was a shower so I would normally only stay for 2 nights maximum without a shower.

From the manager...

Hello Lynda,

Thanks for your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Snowdrop Barn Meadow and found it peaceful enough to enjoy some yoga.
