Misty Meadows: Tents by the river

General

  • Simple site by a lake and river on a working Dorset farm
  • A quarter of an hour's drive from Lulworth Cove and Dorchester
  • Firepits and barbecues welcome; logs and essentials sold on site

An apt name, Misty Meadows – this small pop-up site on a busy working dairy farm just outside the peaceful Dorset village of Owermoigne is regularly graced by atmospheric misty dawns and dusks. The meadows themselves are set in a very sheltered location, with a meandering river on the one side and a small lake on the other.

This spot is an excellent place for family time without any electricity or wifi to distract you, but don't worry – entertainment is provided by the ducks, swans, geese, frogs, deer, dragonflies and other creatures you'll be sharing the site with.

Children can paddle in the river here on hot days (under adult supervision, of course), while elsewhere there are footpaths that start right on the edge of the farm that can take you deep into the local countryside. Barbecues are allowed, so make sure you bring your marshmallows and a comfy chair for stargazing. Some firepits are available to hire if you haven’t got your own, and logs and other essentials are usually sold on site.

Misty Meadows is just under a mile and a half from a well-stocked farm shop in the centre of Owermoigne. Crossways, a slightly larger village with more amenities, is a mile and a half in the other direction.

    Everything......upon arrival we were welcomed by Amy who explained everything and supplied us with a handy map of the site. We had no prior expectations of the site, just somewhere to relax and escape the world........this is exactly what we did and what was offered at Misty Meadows. I am annoyed I am having to write this review as we would like to keep Misty Meadows as low key as possible so we can enjoy it time and time again without them being booked up......but on the other hand...I need to tell everyone about this secret escape! The place is beautiful, the surroundings are beautiful and time spent there is beautiful, Amy and Max are very friendly and helpful and they fulfilled my partners wish to see the cows and farm (sorry for disturbing your cider Max!!) we were even lucky enough to see a calf being born. It was a lovely weekend and we will be back again next year!! thank you so much Amy & Max..........:)

Local attractions

This is cider country, so a visit to the Mill House Cider Museum (five minutes' walk) is in order – and, given how much apple-fermenting expertise there is around the place, it'd be almost rude not to pick up a few local ciders at the gift shop while you're at it. Also within walking distance is the Dorset Collection of Clocks (five minutes' walk), a top collection of timepieces housed in the same building.

Lots of top Dorset beaches and seaside spots like Lulworth Cove (15 minutes' drive) and Weymouth (20 minutes) are within easy reach by road, so there are plenty of opportunities for getting out to see the Jurassic Coast along the South West Coast Path at Misty Meadows.

Inland, other top picks include the Tank Museum (15 minutes) with its rip-roaring military displays and Monkey World (15 minutes), one of the largest ape rescue centres in Europe. You might also like to pay a visit to historic Dorchester (15 minutes), Dorset's county town in the middle of Hardy Country, or to see the village of Corfe Castle (25 minutes), home to an impressive Norman fortress, a steam railway and some of the best tea rooms in the area.

Must see

  • The Tank Museum (6.1 kilometres)
  • Hardy's Birthplace (6.8 kilometres)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (8.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Clouds Hill (6.6 kilometres)
  • Hardy's Cottage (6.8 kilometres)
