Hunters moon CMC site, Wareham, Dorset


Recommended Posts

This is a well laid out site, an excellent  location for Dorset’s beauty spots, and kept immaculate by friendly and helpful wardens. It’s possibly one of the smaller CMC sites, but served with two amenity blocks, and has a very good play area for children, plus an enclosed field for dog exercising.

This site has a private gate onto the Wareham forest, again good for dog walking, and is well laid out with plenty of trees to separate the pitches into areas, mostly hard standing but with a number of grass pitches. Wareham is a pleasant town with two small supermarkets ( Sainsbury’s and Co Op) plus a number of independent retailers, butchers, bakers, cafes and pubs.

Have used Hunters Moon several times and it is a very nice site.

First time I went was in the middle of a thunderstorm which knocked out the electric supply for several hours !!!

 

The staff were very helpful and ensured I was OK .

First visited in February 2011 with our then new Bailey - learned the hard way that you shouldn’t use butane (Blue) gas in the winter. 😂 Paying  a return visit in November - looking forward to it.

Having read good reports about this site,  we tried it for a few nights back in 2016 on Pitch 11 ( IIRC) on the northern side by the main road and Reception. Chose this pitch as we didn’t want to be on the southern side (farthest from Reception) in view of the proximity of the Viridor landfill site to this boundary - I’d been closely involved in that industry prior to retiring so was a little wary of the possible environmental nuisance! See for yourself on Google satellite view.

 

As it turned out the level of traffic, particularly HGV’s, and the general level of noise from the road proved intolerable and we bailed out a day early - the seemingly constant “thudding” sound of  8 wheeler stone trucks hitting potholes or whatever starting at 05:30am or so was not conducive to a peaceful break.

 

Whilst we love the area and the local dog walking etc, we won’t be visiting again.
