Camping at Moonfleet Farm 2015

In 2015 our campsite opens 1st April with bookings through the website.
You can also rent an American Indian Tipi or a Shepherd's Hut.
(you can do this by using the enquiry form on our contact page)

Situated at the west end of the village of Higher Ansty, our 14 pitch campsite offers long distance sunset views of the Blackmore Vale. The site is small and intimate and there are many beautiful scenic walks in the area. There is a network of public footpaths which lead to other hidden gems within the heart of the Dorset countryside, often leading to remote and quaint villages, churchyards (and invariably a real ale pub).

The village of Higher Ansty is the home of the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery established in 1777, it has since moved to nearby Blandford Forum. The local & busy Fox Inn remains and dispenses the H&W range of "Badger" real ales and well priced quality food. (click here to visit the site)

The "Smugglers" public footpath takes you south from the campsite directly to the Fox Inn and a well stocked local village store. (200 metres).

Quiet and well behaved family dogs are welcome at Moonfleet provided they are tethered, (dogs can free roam in the dog exercise area under supervision). Moonfleet Farm is a working sheep farm with camping pitches rather than a commercial campsite complex.
