The camping fields are lined by magnificant oak trees and the fields are mostly flat, making pitching up easy. You can choose your own spot and needn't worry about keeping to a set pitch size because there is acres of room!
From the field you can enjoy the sunrise through the mist, bask in the glorious afternoon sun and enjoy the abundance of roe deer grazing in the evening sunset. You may catch a glimpse of a passing kestrel, hare and even a barn owl at dusk if you're lucky. Alongside the wildlife the sheep and pigs can be seen from the camping field. Snelling Farm is a truly magnificent setting.
What we provide:
The campsite is well equipped with electric warm showers x3, solar showers x 2, eco-friendly compost loo's (bring your own loo roll), 2 washing up sinks, drinking water, recycling and rubbish facilities.
Small campfires and BBQs are allowed as long as they are off the ground and there is wood available to purchase on the site. Please bring a fire pit if you have one, there are a small number available to borrow on site on a first come first served basis.
The farm is set on the Lawrence of Arabia Trail which offers over 6 miles of cycling and walking through Moreton & Bovington Forest, suitable for a families and children. Keen cyclists and walkers can head into neighbouring Affpuddle Forest for a longer excursion.
Moreton Ford is a 10 minute walk. Unique for its' width and shallowness, the ford is perfect for a picnic by the shore, paddling, swimming and maybe even catching a small fish!
The Dovecot Cafe in the village offers breakfast from 9am and should a glorious Dorset cream tea call it is open until 6pm.
Famous the world over, the church of St Nicholas is well worth a visit. The Laurence Whistler engraved windows are enchanting and T.E Lawrence (of Arabia) was laid to rest here. From Snelling Farm it is possible to walk or cycle to his house, Clouds Hill in Bovington, which is now maintained by the National Trust.
