Campsite Of The Month: Back of Beyond Touring, Camping & Glamping Park, Dorset

de8093b0-7e5b-491d-a7e1-c407027d4623

For peaceful, adults-only breaks, Back of Beyond is a bit special.

It offers an oasis within a 30-acre park of woodland, heathland and wildlife lakes.

The site is a haven for wildlife and is located within a short drive of Dorset beaches and the New Forest.

There are 48 recently-built large hardstanding pitches for caravans and motorhomes, some of which are fully serviced (10A hook-up, fresh water and grey waste) and some of which are extra large. In addition, there are three main camping areas for tents, including Emma’s Glade, which offers around 20 non-electric, wild camping-style pitches for a real off-grid experience.

For a more comfortable pitch, the Warren has 10A electric pitches on flat artificial grass and there are also traditional grass pitches with electric.

The modern toilets and showers offer luxurious comforts such as power showers and there is a washing-up area. There’s also a warm water dog wash, a reception shop and a pop-up outdoor bar which is extremely popular!

You can also pick up freshly baked croissants, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin and baguettes for breakfast if pre-ordered the day before.

Recreation facilities include a pitch and putt course and also a boules pitch – clubs and balls are provided.

For glampers, there are fully furnished shepherd huts with wood burners, as well as a luxurious yurt, lodges and pods. Dogs are welcome in some of the glamping accommodation units.

Moors Valley Country Park and Hurn Forest are close to the site, with New Forest villages and Ringwood just a cycle ride or short drive away. Major coastal resorts such as Bournemouth and Poole are within 30 minutes’ drive.
