At the Whitehall, we’ve become accustomed to our home comforts and our camping days are behind this! If this is you too, then why not experience the best of both worlds. Stay with us when you visit the GDSF – enjoy everything the Great Dorset Steam Fair has to offer, and also the creature comforts of hot running water, clean sheets and a hearty breakfast cooked by someone else.
