Review - Dorset Springs Caravan Club CL, Wimborne

Recommended Posts

We found this site on-line, when searching for a CL near Wimborne, on the outskirts of Sturminster Marshall.   It is one of the best CLs that we have stayed on over 40 years of caravanning.   We had a very  warm and friendly welcome from the owners and were told to enjoy our stay and make full use of this very large property.

It is an idyllic location set amongst lakes, paddocks and meadows. The lakes are pleasant to walk around and the surrounding fields are grazed by sheep. For the keen carp fisherman day tickets are available for the 5 1/2 acre lake.

There are actually two separate CLs in the parkland.   One is alongside the larger of the 2 fishing lakes – ideal for fishermen – but has no electric hook-ups.   The other, which we stayed on, overlooks a large paddock with a small flock of sheep and the lakes beyond.   This particular CL does have electric hook-ups and there is also a toilet.   A small shower block with wet rooms is under construction and will be in use for next season.

The local towns of Blandford, Wimborne and Poole offer historical attractions and leisure facilities. They have services including restaurants, pub, chip shop, petrol station, supermarkets and a variety of shops. For families there are a variety of soft play venues, trampoline park, cinema and Farmer Palmers. Poole has a train station and ferry port, so it is an ideal location for a stop-over on the way to or from France

The owners are very enthusiastic about developing their site for the benefit of caravanners, and have some ambitious plans for the future.   Considering that they have established such a good site in less than 2 years, we look forward to seeing what they will accomplish in the future.
