Now over 25 years old, Ashley Heath Car Boot Sale (nr Ringwood in Dorset) is perhaps the best known car boot fair in the Poole/Bournemouth area and attracts an average of 300 sellers per week. It regularly sees between 2,000 and 3,000 enthusiastic buyers through its gates on a Sunday morning.
Originally started to diversify the farmÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s income it has seen a steady increase in buyers and sellers from all walks of life and now employs 12 people to assist with itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s smooth running.
The operators say that their biggest challenge in running a car boot of this size is getting everyone on site on a busy day without causing disruption on the roadsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.something many car boot operators can relate to.
Furthermore, being an entirely outdoor carboot, with little protection from the elements, their weekly success is rather weather dependent, leaving them wishing for nice weather for the weekends. Their busiest weekends tend to be in May and September but with the British weather being as it is these days it is becoming more and more unpredictable.
They advertise only in the local press and on CarBootJunction.com, as well as relying heavily on word of mouth. However, that word of mouth clearly works as the car boot sale community is usually quick to pass on information about professionally run car boot sales such as this.
So, if you are looking for a car boot sale on the edge of Dorset and not too far away from the New Forest then consider the Ashley Heath car boot sale. A well organised, flat and level site with good toilets, a large selection of sellers and buyers (the largest in the area), plenty of parking and good access and egress from the site.
