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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Worth Noting

Two holiday bungalows to hire and mobile phone reception is poor. Site campers receive 50% reduction in green fees at Dorset Golf and Country Club. The Frampton Arms (next door to site, offers campers 10% discount on food, Sunday – Thursday.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

Farmers’ markets are held regularly in Wareham, Weymouth, Dorchester and Wimborne. Pamphill Farm Shop sells local produce and Pampered Pigs at Bere Regis supplies organic vegetables and meat.

This review is for Moreton

Just returned from a very enjoyable stay here at Moreton, on arrival had a choice of several pitches. Staff were able to advise on where sun is in relation to pitch. A very friendly welcome. Site is across the road from the station so trains horns can be heard as they approach the crossing. There is a regular service hourly through to Weymouth or Poole and beyond (ideal if not gonna drive). I found many others to also be using the service. Site was easy to find via sat nav. Pub next door is a bit pricey and dated but meals are fresh. Fish and chip van comes twice a week didnt use but seemed very popular. I was pleasantly suprised when setting up to find two deer, one being a young stag had wondered onto site having jumped the fence. They were reasonably tame and are apparently regular visitors. Dawn chorus is also a wonderful sound. My only suggestion for improvement would be is that showers are a bit crampt and only 5 for ladies across the site and with it being hot weather they were in use alot, but lovely continuous hot water. The other niggle though it didn't impact upon me as such because I wasn't using my car is that where I was back against the fence when the site is full as was this weekend there is no designated roadway opening for vehicle access so sort have to get through spaces between the hard standing pitches where wider where the front row bends around slightly. I look forward to going back.

This review is for Moreton

We always get a top welcome from the wardens who are extremely friendly and can't do enough to help. They manage to keep the facilities very clean despite them being in real need of a refurbishment. A very peaceful site with a lovely pub right outside and a train station opposite with trains to Weymouth, Poole & Bournemouth to name just a few places. The site has a small shop for essentials plus you can order your papers for that relaxing read first thing in the morning. Tea rooms and walled gardens within walking distance. Updated facilities would make this site even better. A lovely site made even better by the charming wardens.

The site managers Janet & Paul were excellent. Very helpful and friendly. The site was lovely, lots of space and it had a nice feel to it. Facilities were very clean and in good order. One of the best sites we have stayed at. We will be booking again for next year. Thanks for a great stay! The Goodwin family.

“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.”

- Carole and Colin

This stunning leafy campsite is set in seven acres and is surrounded on all sides by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
