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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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!
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.
