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).

We had put our caravan where told then awning then car only to be told 2days later to move it too the other side off the caravan , when I said we were advised to put it there the owner said nobody would of told us to park there ,which made it really awkward with the person next too us , I think this site is OK for older campers and caravanners not with children , just felt like we were not welcome

This review is for Moreton

Two potentially big advantages of the site are the main line railway station a few steps from the site entrance, and the pub/restaurant right beside the site entrance. The restaurant will give members a 20% discount and the food is very good. The train takes you to Dorchester or Weymouth in one direction or Poole, Bournemouth or Corfe Castle in the other. Bovington camp tank museum just a few miles away is extremely good

This was a very clean and well maintained site and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

This review is for Moreton

This was a very clean and well maintained site and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We cannot fault the staff or maintenance. We would however not go back to the site as we found it far to cramped, too many units and they seemed too close to each other. Well felt very hemmed in. And we went on a mid week break and it was not the summer holidays.

Site quieter than anticipated in view of proximity to railway.

This review is for Moreton

Site quieter than anticipated in view of proximity to railway. Toilet block was kept clean and water in shower warm but did feel that room in shower cubicles was very restrictive (and I'm small!) although there was one slightly larger cubicle. There were no private wash basin facilities either. With so much space available on these sites I do wonder why the toilet/wash facilities need to be cramped and cannot be made more 'comfortable' to use.

“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.”
