Premier Park is crowned best in South West in AA awards

88d71738-9c71-4e98-8de8-5511f384259e

Wareham Forest Tourist Park, a member of the Premier Parks group of the top 100 campsites in the UK and Ireland, has been named as South West Campsite of the Year 2022 by the AA

The family-owned business, said the AA, was a clear winner thanks to its high-quality standards, first-class hospitality, and tranquil location in delightful Dorset countryside.

Not far from Poole, Dorchester and the Purbeck coast, Wareham Forest Tourist Park was acquired 20 years ago by husband-and-wife team, Tony and Sarah Birch. Since then, they have invested much time and energy into creating five-star facilities and surroundings for campers and owners of touring caravans and motorhomes.

Today, the site draws guests from all over the UK and mainland Europe, and says that 70% of its customers comprise people making repeat visits. As well as paths to explore around the park’s wooded grounds, there is a heated outdoor pool, children’s play area, park shop, and comfortable modern shower and toilet facilities.

Wareham Forest Tourist Park also has a reputation for its pet-friendly nature, and even provides a warm shower to pamper pooches following their countryside rambles.

The park is managed by Tony and Sarah, assisted by their daughter, Chrissy, and her husband, Ben.

On winning the award, Tony says,

 

It’s an immensely proud achievement for us, not least because Wareham Forest was chosen from among the many superb parks which the South West has to offer.

The AA award is particularly special to us because the judging is based not just on our quality standards, but also the experience which guests enjoy during their stay. Providing happy holiday memories has always been our main priority, and our friendly and helpful team here deserve a big vote of thanks for helping us gain this honour.

I hope that the award will also benefit other local tourism businesses by putting the spotlight on Dorset as a fantastic place for a great holiday in gorgeous surroundings.

The park is open all year, enabling touring guests to enjoy the countryside throughout the seasons, and when nearby visitor attractions are less busy.
