Last chance for campers to pitch up on Brownsea Island

TIME is running out for campers to pitch up for a once-in-a-season experience.

National Trust-run Brownsea Island is only welcoming campers until the end of September.

The island’s campsite boasts views across Poole Harbour to the Purbeck hills.

There is access to the beach from the campsite and plenty of walks, as well as the Watersports Academy, offering kayaking and paddle boarding sessions.

Campers can pitch their own tent, or glamp in a bell tent, with tree tents also available to hire.

Showers, toilets, drinking water, cooking facilities and a well-stocked campsite shop are also on hand, with cooking equipment available.

Georgia Simpkin, holiday operation manager, said: “September is a great time to enjoy camping on Brownsea, the leaves are changing colour, red squirrels are more active preparing their food stores for the winter and you may even hear the sika deer calling as they begin to enter rutting season.”

Mid-week is the quietest time to stay, she added, for those wishing to avoid the crowds.
