Overview

Discover Dorset's beautiful beaches & surrounding area from our Moreton campsite.

Dorset’s beautiful beaches, heath and downlands are all accessible from our Moreton Club campsite located in the heart of Wessex and surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Our 120-pitch site is open and spacious with a good range of facilities, including two amenity blocks, a small children’s play area and a dog walk.

Moreton station next to the campsite is on routes to Weymouth, Poole and Bournemouth and the bus stop, half a mile from site, will take you to the pretty county town of Dorchester where you can enjoy a number of walking trails including the Thomas Hardy trail and the Roman Town Walk. The town’s Borough Gardens has tennis courts, a bowling green and a children’s play area and hosts a number of events through the summer including live bands and a teddy bear’s picnic.

Head to the sleepy village of Moreton and stop off at the Tearooms, situated in the old school at Moreton for a cream tea. Thomas Edward Lawrence, popularly known as “Lawrence of Arabia” is buried in the church here. A more elaborate memorial can be found at St. Martins church, Wareham.

The village forms part of the “Lawrence of Arabia Walking Trail. The walks take in Bovington, Clouds Hill, Moreton Church and Lawrence’s grave.

Attractions in the area include the Tank Museum at Bovington, Monkey World Ape rescue Centre in Wareham and Lulworth and Corfe Castles. For the best beaches, head to the circularLulworth Cove, Kimmeridge Bay – great for rock pooling and swimming – and the blue flag beach at Swanage.

This review is for Moreton

Well our second year here and as last year. Great. Can't get any better. The staff where great. Especially Justin and his wife ( sorry forget your name ). You can't wish for better people to help with your stay. The grounds are clean and tidy. The grass is cut everyday if needed the showers and toilets are spotless the only downside is the area for dogs. It's not fenced off properly and no lights at night. And to close to children's play area. There is an area just up the road to walk and toilet your dog which is much more suited. Just of Dick o' th banks road. But apart from that 100% hope to be coming back soon. Once again thanks for everything.

Members no doubt expect high standards of club sites. Moreton did not disappoint.

This review is for Moreton

Members no doubt expect high standards of club sites. Moreton did not disappoint. A big thank-you to the club staff on site. Especially for families with younger children the site is a gem. All the usual positives (though the washroom facilities are hardly generous in number for a big, relatively crowded site in high summer), plus the family bathrooms, play areas and the proximity to the train station, with good value off-peak fares to Dorchester, Weymouth, Poole and elsewhere. Even the weather was spot-on during our 5 days in August! What more could we have asked for?

Stayed here during visit to Bovington tank museum and Lulworth Cove. Great site well situated.

This review is for Moreton

Stayed here during visit to Bovington tank museum and Lulworth Cove. Great site well situated. Pub at the entrance we found to be very good (bit of a wait for food on Friday evening -lady serving suggested getting there when they open at 6 if you want food a bit quicker). Staff great, very helpful and friendly. Amenities fine, a bit dated maybe but we found them perfectly adequate. Only 3 male/ 2 female showers in each block so getting up early is a good idea before the hordes descend! Would definitely go back again. Only negative was not the trains but the road at the front of the site, which was quite loud even at night. Wouldn't put us off though.

“Moreton is a real favourite of ours and we have been going there for years. Moreton is brilliantly run and extremely clean. It has a real community feeling and the grounds are always splendid. Over the years we have recommended many and it too has become their favourite.”
