Merley Hall Farm (Basic Camping)

Family Fest 2021 - Stay in Wimborne & Dorset


Camp back to basics, with only a 5-minute drive from our festival site, at Merley Hall Farm from £25 per night.

Wild-style Dorset stays await at Merley Hall Farm, a well-maintained working sheep farm two miles from central Wimborne. Located just off the A31, this peaceful site is well-placed for accessing local highlights including Poole, Bournemouth beach and the spectacular landscapes of the Isle of Purbeck.

Once you've rolled up here and picked your pitch, there's plenty of space to go for tours of the large woodland-fringed meadow or to let the kids blow off some steam in the roped-off recreation area. This simple site is fairly low in frills, but basic temporary toilet facilities are available. Please note that the site does not have showers or electricity.

Barbecues are welcome here as long as simple safety measures are followed, so in the evening you can either get toasty around a blaze or drive 10 minutes into Wimborne for evening strolls and a meal out. A wider range of evening entertainment is on hand in Bournemouth (25 minutes), where there are bars, nightclubs, cinemas and pier amusements to explore.

Closer to base, you could just as easily relax on the banks of the River Stour at Canford (three miles), where there are a pedestrian suspension bridge and riverside park.
