Brewery Farm, Ansty, Dorset DT2 7PN
If your campsite’s called Brewery Farm then it’s only right that it’s situated right opposite a good pub. In fact, it’s the farm that came first; named after an 18th-century farmer’s son who brewed ale here and brought it out to the field workers as a wholesome, tipsy treat. The successful brewing company that it spawned, the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery, has now moved to the pretty Georgian town of Blandford Forum, 20 minutes away (tours available) but the pub across the road still serves their finest selection on tap. So really, you owe it to the history of the campsite to pop across for a pint. After all, it would be rude not to.
Behind the main farm buildings, Brewery Farm's camping meadow sprawls, its edges gnawed by a herd of cattle that scatter themselves around the adjacent field. A gleaming brand new washroom block has also been built, including modern showers, toilets and a washing up area. Wi-Fi is available too and caravanners have electrical hook-ups to connect to.
Across the meadow and around the corner is Brewery Farm’s farm shop, selling local goods and their own beef and pork. It’s a good place to stock up if you plan on having a barbecue or for crafting your perfect picnic for the beach. It takes just over half an hour to drive to the south coast, where Dorset’s Jurassic Coast unfolds in all its glory. Ogle at the arch of Durdle Door, puff on the old steam train from Swanage to Corfe Castle, or kick-back with your picnic on the beaches around Weymouth. Whatever you do, just make sure you’re back in time for last orders.
