Angling for some serious fishing? The five fishing lakes (including three specimen carp lakes) at Coking Farm Fishery in Dorset’s Blackmore Vale will have you hooked: as well as carp, there's catfish, tench, bream and roach to land, with some of the bigger carp weighing in at nearly 40lbs: take a look at the Coking Farm photos for some monster catches. (Please be aware that fishing is very strictly catch and release and all fishery rules must be adhered to).
If you want to sample some fresh Dorset produce from the campsite, a butchery on site sells local meats; chicken and (occasionally) duck eggs and preserves can usually be picked up too. You'll find sheep, Kunekune pigs, ducks and chickens wandering about too, so please keep your pup on a lead at all times.
Coking Farm has a generous four-acre field where you can park next to your pitch and borrow a firepit if you choose. Off-site, there's a One Stop shop at the local garage in West Stour, where you can pick up all the essentials. The site is also just four miles from the best local supermarket, Dykes, in Stalbridge (which does an excellent cooked breakfast).
The pitches at Coking Farm Fishery are set beside the 60 acres of Fifehead Wood to wander around too. If you manage to put down the fishing rod, that is...

From Shaftesbury, take the A30 towards Sherborne for 7 miles. Our driveway is on the left, approximately 1 mile after the Ship Inn at West Stour. The campsite is signposted.
From Sherborne, take the A30 towards Shaftesbury and Salisbury. Our driveway is approximately 2 miles on the right after the traffic light controlled crossroads (over the river Cale and just beyond the large picnic layby).
From the A303, either take the A350 to Shaftesbury, or the A357 from Wincanton, and onto the A30 as above.
Once you’ve finished checking out all the other fishing in the area – there’s quite a bit – this part of Dorset is sublime for scenery and walks.
Ascending out of Blackmoor Vale, the setting for the start of Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles, is the Woodland Trust-managed Duncliffe Wood, or you could drive for about an hour to get to the pristine World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast for cliff walks, beaches and yet more fishing.
If you’re a two-wheeler type, a mighty challenge is to bike up Gold Hill in nearby Shaftesbury, which the tired-legged Hovis boy pushed his bike up in the TV ad; Shaftesbury is one of the highest towns in the country, as he could no doubt tell you, and overlooks Blackmore Vale for whimsical painting of the parts you hiked the day before.
There are several other historic Dorset towns and villages nearby: Sherborne with its Walter Raleigh-built castle and medieval buildings; Cerne Abbas with a giant naked man on its hillside and Stalbridge, where Douglas Adams wrote most of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Keeping up the Dorset literary theme, a visit to the county town of Dorchester is a must for more Thomas Hardy connections: his home in town is now managed by the National Trust and Dorchester and the surrounding area was the inspiration for much of his work.
Several museums are in town too: if this all sounds a bit too grown-up, the Dinosaur Museum and the Dorset Teddy Bear Museum should regress you to childhood nicely.翻译 (由 Google 翻译驱动)
