#6 of 20 Speciality lodging in Wareham
Birchwood Tourist Park is a touring caravan and camping site located three miles drive from the town of Wareham, and is centrally located for visiting Bournemouth, Poole, The Isle of Purbeck, Dorchester, Weymouth and the Jurassic coastline. We are an open, rural Park surrounded by Wareham Forest, our boundary adjoining the forest so with direct access for walking and cycling. Dogs are welcome on a short lead. We are open most of the year, including over Christmas and New Year when our block-paved hard-standing serviced pitches are open. There is a well-stocked shop in the Reception, two toilet blocks with free showers and we offer a range of pitches; including block-paved hard-standings with gravel area for awning, grass pitches or gravel pitches, fully serviced (16 amp electric hook up, water & drain connection points and TV socket point), or electric hook ups (10 amp) connection and plenty of space for tents. We have a barrier system for entry and exit onto the Park, operated by a number- plate recognition system linked to your booking and which deactivates overnight to prevent cars driving onsite after 10.00 pm and before 7 am. The Park is set in 27 acres and has a large separate games field for ball games, tennis area, kite flying or group activities. We also have a 2 foot (0.6m) deep unheated paddling pool for the children, a sandpit, swings and play area near the central toilet block.

We have just had an eight night stay at Birchwood site. Before we arrived the communication was amazing. Full description of covid-19 guidelines. Upon arrival we were welcomed by a lovely helpful gentleman. We were met at our pitch by another helpful gentleman who popped back later to make sure we were happy. The site was kept so clean and everyone so friendly it made our holiday. No late night parties. Thank you. I hope potential campers read this It is an amazing place surrounded by forest and amazing wildlife. Thoroughly recommend this site.

We stayed for a few days from 31st August. The site is beautiful, clean, secure . Staff were welcoming when we arrived, showed us to our pitch and explained how things work. Toilets and showers were spotless. A perfect play area for the kids. We will definately stay here again

It is interesting to read reviews of various camping and caravan sites this year. There seems to be a common theme. Perhaps the fact that so many people have chosen to stay at home and enjoy the great outdoors for the first time has come as a bit of a shock. It seems that there are very many first time campers and caravanners around who have absolutely no idea of the way to behave when they are sharing common facilities with many others. We have been regular visitors to Birchwood for a number of years and can vouch for the cleanliness of the facilities and the commitment of staff and owners to providing the best possible experience for their guests. One of the main reasons we stay in the UK is because of the abhorrent behaviour of many of our fellow countrymen when on holiday abroad. Hopefully, these people will, once again, be able to plague our continental cousins next year and leave sites such as Birchwood to those who really appreciate them. To emphasise our appreciation of Birchwood, we shall be there again in September. Can't wait.
