General

Kid around with the goats, have a gander at the geese, or talk the hind legs off Maisie the donkey at this family-oriented site a stone’s throw from the spectacular Jurassic Coastline.

The facilities at Bagwell Farm Touring Park are good, with free showers in the heated toilet block (guests can also luxuriate in a bubbly bath for a small fee), a shop selling local cider and foodie treats, a laundry room and a children’s adventure playground. If camping stove cuisine proves a conundrum, the characterful Red Barn bar and grill does a good line in home-reared beef and lamb dishes - it’s open every day between late May and the end of August, weekends only in low season.

The site welcomes tents, caravans and motorhomes of all sizes,and has a range of pitches with or without electric, water and drainage points.

Directions


Approaching from Dorchester: take the A354, following signs for Weymouth then Town Centre and Portland until you see signs for the B3157, Chickerell and Abbotsbury.

Approaching from Wareham on the A352 A353: turn right at Preston (signed Littlemoor) and this takes you across to the A354 where you follow the directions above.

Continue one mile past Chickerell, heading for Abbotsbury on the B3157. Pass the Victoria Inn on the left and our turning is the next on the left.

Approaching from Bridport - either take the A35 to Dorchester (easiest route for large vehicles) and follow the directions from Dorcheter, or take the scenic coastal B3157 through Abbotsbury and towards Chickerell. Our turning is the next right after the turning to Langton Herring and the Elm Tree Inn (just after a sharp bend so be ready for a sudden turn!

Local attractions

Hop on the bus for the five-mile ride to winsome Weymouth (in summer, the service picks up and drops off directly at Bagwell Farm during the week). The resort has lovely golden sands, plus miles of glorious walking along the famed South West Coastal Path, and watersports including windsurfing, Jurassic kayak tours and fantastic sailing (nearby Portland is the Olympic sailing venue). Climbing, coasteering, diving and fishing (both beach and sea varieties) are other popular activities in the area. After all that hard graft, guests can slake their thirst/hunger in one of Weymouth’s many pubs, restaurants or tea rooms.

Nature lovers will enjoy the RSPB’s Radipole Lake and Lodmoor reserves, as well as Lorton Meadows, run by the Dorset Wildlife Trust, and Bennetts Water Gardens in Chickerell. Alternatively, they can swan off to Abbotsbury, to see 600 mute swans being fed, and to stroll around the subtropical gardens; younger animal fans will also enjoy Abbotsbury’s children’s farm. Other animal attractions nearby include the sea life centre in Weymouth, and the Monkey World chimp rescue centre in Wareham.

Along the coast are some charming beaches and villages - try fossil hunting at Charmouth, or a visit to the ghost village of Tyneham - plus historic resorts such as Lyme Regis, with its famous Cobb harbour wall, and amazing natural features such as the Durdle Door stone arch and Lulworth Cove.

There are several National Trust estates within easy reach, including 1000 year-old Corfe Castle, Clouds Hill (Lawrence of Arabia's former abode), Thomas Hardy’s birthplace and Max Gate, the writer’s cottage in Dorchester.

Out of puff after all that sightseeing? Take it easy on the picturesque Swanage steam railway.

3. Commercial vehicles and jetskis cannot be accepted.

4. Pitches are not usually available until midday on the date of arrival and must be vacated by 11am on the departure date unless a 'late stay' has been agreed and paid for at Reception (these are not usually available in August).

5. If your unit (tent, motor van or caravan) is larger than the size quoted then the space allocated may not be suitable and we will have to turn you away on arrival. No refund will be made in these circumstances.

6. A strict 5mph speed limit operates on the park. All roads should be used in accordance with the highway code. Any motorised vehicle or scooter is subject to the same rules as on a public highway.

7. Please respect your neighbours' peace and privacy and ensure that they are not inconvenienced by your children, pets or noise, or by taking 'short cuts' across their pitch.

8. Children (under 18) must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.

9. Dogs are only accepted if kept on a short lead at all times (even in the dog walk areas). Owners are asked to take their dogs to the dog toilet areas regularly and to clean up any 'accidents' on the park. Dogs must not be left unattended on the park.

10. No pitching of tents or parking of caravans should be attempted on the park between 9.00 p.m. and 9.00 a.m. Instead, an overnight parking area is provided adjacent to the entrance road. (Pitch fees are still payable).

11. Please do not disturb other campers with noise. Music/TVs/electronic games etc. should not be audible outside your pitch. Barbecues and outdoor meals should be completed and cleared away by 10.30pm. and other campers should not be able to hear you after 11pm.

12. Campers are welcome to have visitors, but any wishing to stay overnight must report to the reception first.

14. If a caravan, motor van or tent is not removed from the park at the end of a hire period then we will consider it to be abandoned unless other arrangements have been made with us and confirmed in writing. The unit will be sold and any outstanding fees will be settled with the proceeds.

15. The owners reserve the right to amend and update these rules and conditions without prior notice. Anyone not observing them or acting in an unreasonable manner will be asked to leave the park without refund.
