Best campsites for the Cranborne Chase AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offers magnificent landscapes and superb outdoor activities, making it popular with cyclists, walkers and horse riders. Humans are known to have settled here since 8,000 BC, long before Cranborne Chase was created as a royal hunting forest in the time of William the Conqueror. Situated southeast of Stafford, it comprises heathland, deciduous woodland, conifer plantations and small lakes and is the smallest AONB with just 26 square miles. There are three local nature reserves, 21 wildlife sites and some 20% of the AONB is also designated as SSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest).

Highlights include the Heart of England Way and the Staffordshire Way, waymarked trails that lead through sublime unspoilt scenery. Look out for resident wildlife, including fallow deer and endangered birdlife like the nightjar. Places of historical interest include Shugborough Hall and the remnants of Castle Ring, an Iron Age hill fort on the highest point in the AONB.
