General

  • Peaceful and quiet campsite in a walking paradise
  • Set in a farm in rural Dorset
  • Plenty of activities and attractions available nearby

Family-run Brewery Farm in rural Dorset welcomes you to enjoy an area filled with history, attractions and outdoor activities, whether you're looking for a relaxing break or a quiet romantic getaway.

Ramble up to the Dorset Gap, hike along the nearby Jurassic Coast, or enjoy an afternoon stroll around the well-maintained footpaths in the village.

On site is a well-stocked farm shop, a very short walk from the pitches, selling locally produced meat and vegetables, plants, fine foods and more. There's also an excellent pub and restaurant immediately opposite - Sunday carvery is a must.

A new shower and toilet block and toilet block was added in August 2017: pitch prices now include all facilities, hardstanding, electric and wifi.

Please note

    The beautiful location and tranquility of it! Beautiful thatched cottages in all the surrounding area! Easy access to places of interest! Great pub across the road"the Fox inn" made to feel very welcome! Even gave the dogs a pig's ear whilst we were eating our meal! Beautiful kept pub and beer gardens! Really enjoyed it!
    Farm shop was good!

    Disliked: 

    When we booked the site we knew that the building of the new shower block was on going, but then before we went we had an email to say that it would be open for the last two days of our stay, and that if we wanted to use it we would have to pay extra! I thought that was a bit mean! And besides there was noone around to ask about paying!
    The email also stated that the lady of the house was going to be away for the duration of our visit, but to let ourselves onto the pitch and find a pitch of our choice and that one of her son's would come around later to say hello, but no one came through out our stay or other people's stay, which was a bit strange as there was no one to ask for advice on the area etc!

From the manager...

Thank you Maureen for your review. I am really sorry no-one managed to catch up with you - that is not normally the case. Glad that you liked the pub, shop and the beautiful location. If you come again I will make sure you get to know about all the walks and information of our area.

    Even though we didn't manage to meet the staff, they made us feel very welcome by being very flexible with our needs. Very quiet, apart from our kids, in such tranquil surroundings. Perfect for what we wanted.

    Disliked:
