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

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, very good range of pitches, There is a railway line that runs along one side of the site but this didn't stop a good nights sleep. The nearest railway station is just outside the site gate, this is very handy as you can get to most places without taking your car or motor home, as normal in tourist areas car parking is quite expensive. Dorchester is well worth a visit as is Weymouth.

This review is for Moreton

Our initial reception was a bit abrupt from the female staff member, which didnt exactly make us feel welcome. However, the next 3 male staff members more than made up for her - they were extremely helpful, very friendly and a font of knowledge on the local area. The site doesnt have a lot of hard-standings, and although we and our friends booked at the same time, requesting adjoining hardstanding pitches, this was overlooked! However, luckily someone was leaving as we arrived and all was sorted out. The showers, whilst a teeny bit dated, were very clean, roomy and none of the "press button, have 10seconds of water). The train station is just across the road, which was handy for a trip into Weymouth. I've read previous reviews that say the train woke them in the morning, but we barely noticed it. Be prepared for midges ! As the site is surrounded by trees (and presumably some water nearby, there are swarms of them!). Would we return.....for sure! :)

Great site. Fantastic welcome, really friendly wardens.

This review is for Moreton

Great site. Fantastic welcome, really friendly wardens. As first time campers we used this site as a trial run. The warden helped us select a pitch that was nice and level and sheltered as we didn't know how good our second hand awning was and whether it was weatherproof! Facilities all kept extremely clean and our children loved the park! Had a great meal at the pub near by and loved the fact that you could walk to a bus stop or catch the train minutes from the site. Happy campers!

“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.”
