Take the road to Wareham and then follow the A351 (Swanage Road). Just before Corfe Castle turn right opposite Castle View Visitors Centre (brown sign post to The New Inn).
After approx 1 mile you will see Bucknowle Farm on the left.
Drive slowly as it would be difficult to turn round past the site.
The site entrance is on the left down the farm lane and we have to cross the main camp field.
The weather was good to us and we all enjoyed exploring the wonderful location. Convenient paths from the rally field saw lots of people walking into Church Knowle and Corfe enjoying the glorious views.
Katherine and Jason's tent gave us a communal meeting place where we enjoyed coffee & biscuits on the evening of arrival and wine & cheese between our Mexican Train games on the Sunday evening.
All units bought games to play in the field on the Saturday. Great fun was had as people threw beanbags, shunted coins and pulled the imaginary handle on the Triple Trouble Fruit Machine! This fun evening was fuelled by a lovely cream tea that we enjoyed in the sunshine.
Our return visit to Wareham Methodist saw a very warm welcome and it was lovely to share communion with the local congregation.
A lovely weekend with a good turn out of units, being fairly local also meant we had lots of family and friends who came out to visit and join in the fun. We look forward to staying here again.
