The oak lined camping field is simple and relaxed and campers can chose their own spot with unrestricted, unallocated pitches in the 23 acre field. The field is mostly flat making pitching up easy.
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, 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 and there is wood available to purchase on the site. Unless you have a firepit and can fit it in the car, you do not need to use one.
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!
Moreton Tea Rooms in the village offers breakfast from 10am and should a glorious Dorset cream tea call it is open until 5pm.
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.
