St Leonards Caravan & Camping Park is perfectly placed if you’re planning to explore the many sights of Poole, Bournemouth, the New Forest and the surrounding area.
This campsite is open from the beginning of April until the end of September and welcomes guests in tents, caravan and motorhomes. A total of 150 touring pitches are available – the premier pitches have 10A electric hook-ups. In addition, some of the site is set aside for residential park homes for the over 55s and there are five privately owned static holiday caravans, plus there is a four-berth static caravan that can be hired on a weekly basis. This static caravan has gas heating, electricity, a shower and a toilet, and a kitchen with a gas oven, a fridge, cutlery, a toaster and a kettle – pets are not permitted in July and August and you must bring your own bed linen and towels.
The fact that this campsite is a finalist in the Top 100 Sites Guide 2014 should reassure you that this is a top destination for your camping, motorhome and touring caravan holidays in Dorset. This go-to guide to the best campsites in the UK is produced every year by the expert teams working at Caravan Sitefinder, Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome, to help visitors have the best holidays possible. St Leonards Caravan & Camping Park is one of just four campsites in this camping and travel guide in Dorset, a county that's popular for caravan and camping holidays, meaning this is one of the best campsites in Dorset.
On site you will find a spacious shower and toilet block with facilities for disabled guests, a dishwashing area, a launderette, a play area for the children, a picnic area and a freezer for ice packs, plus there are chemical disposal points for black and grey water. If you can't charge your electrical devices yourself, you can do so at the campsite's reception, for a small fee. Also in reception is a tourist information point. There’s no shop on site, but there is a large Sainsbury’s supermarket around five minutes up the road. It’s worth noting that when you arrive you’ll need £10 in cash as a deposit for your card to enter the gates (returned at the end of your stay) – but many will welcome the extra security and reassurance that this entry system provides.
This is a dog friendly campsite. However, dogs are permitted only by prior appointment, so be certain to mention you want to bring your four-legged friend when you book. Also, dogs are not allowed at this campsite in the months of July and August.
There’s such a huge amount to see and do in this lovely part of the country, so why not take a trip to beautiful Corfe Castle or perhaps Highcliffe Castle, or wonderful Brownsea Island or explore the historic Jurassic Coast? You could spend days enjoying time in the ancient New Forest, either in the car, on foot, on two wheels or on horseback! The stunning Purbeck Heritage Coast with the famous Lulworth Cove is also doable in a day when pitched at St Leonards Caravan & Camping Park. This really is a special part of the country in which to spend your motorhome, camping and caravan holidays in Dorset.
