    Can anyone advise of an all year site close to Poole, Dorset that can accomodate an RV? This will be a long term booking

    The site should have hard standing, electric & a ground level dump facility

    Any advice welcome:thumb:

    How long term and how close to Poole do you want to be?

    The BH is moving to a new firm with 4 offices in & around Poole so the period is indefinate & an easy commute will be ideal

    We don't want to sell our existing home & relocate

    Won't be there at weekends

    Ok here goes

    Rockley Sands is about a miles out of Poole Town Centre.
    + Great views of the harbour with all facilities.
    - can be busy and noisy
    Never stayed on site but have driven round a few times and know people who have stayed

    Beacon Hill is about three miles out of Poole
    + easy access to A35 and A350
    - limited pitches that will take your size rv but the owners will give advise. This is a seasonal site
    This site is only 4 miles from our home we have stayed many times as it feels like you are miles from home but easy commute via duel carriage way to get home to do any housekeeping.

    South Lytchett Manor is about 4 miles from Poole
    + nice location
    - open until 22/12 then reopens 1/3

    There are three sites in organford 6 miles from Poole I will let you have details if your interested

    The ones listed by Scotjimland are in Wareham, the Wareham forest site is about 11 miles from Poole but believe me someone who does this commute everyday usually takes 45 minutes and on Fridays can take over an a hour

    The luck ford site is 15 miles and we would not advise staying on this site

    There are loads more in and around Wareham if you decide to commute that far let me know and I will send details of others, there is a railway station in Wareham that only takes 10 minutes to get to Poole but only two trains per hour.

    If the location of new offices are north Poole I would recommend Merley Touring Park

    Really it all depends where in Poole the offices are if East or South you may be advised choosing a Bournemouth, Christchurch or Studland, west of Poole go for the Lytchett or Wareham options, and North the Wimborne sites.

    If you want any more info just pm us and we will try and help

    Mike and Andrea

    Here you are, try this, not too far from Poole. We stayed here this year for 2 weeks . We have a 35.7' RV and Ruth and Tony's RV is 38'. Beautiful straight pitches, city water, drains, very, very nice people. and if you like rabbits well...........

    Birchwood is again in Wareham, Great site but the commute to Poole is the same as that from Poole to Wareham nightmare, that said tonight was the exception and it only took me 28 minutes from work to home a record!

    Visited above site today Looks great & ideal for our needs. Also noted quite a few RV & Vans still on site so looks like there'll be plenty of company:thumb:
