General

  • Peaceful family-friendly farm a few miles from Weymouth
  • Family-run for over 40 years
  • Play area, ball park area and shop

Let your spirits soar at Higher Moor Farm, a peaceful family-friendly site a few miles from the sandy stretches of Weymouth, set among eight acres of Dorset countryside.

The family who run Higher Moor have farmed here for over 40 years, so can answer any questions or give tips on what to see and do in the surrounding countryside, even if your first or most pressing issue is where to get the best fish and chips locally (usually a good first question on arriving at a site). Daniel and his friendly team will do their best to ensure you have a tiptop stay, with facilities and services kept to the highest standards.

As well as the usual amenities among this spectacular scenery, the farm has a play area, a ball park area and a shop. Two supermarkets within five minutes’ drive.

Bookings must not be for more than 14 consecutive nights.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

    Lovely friendly clean & quiet site. Shower blocks immaculate. Shop had lovely local produce. Short drive to the beach. Free wifi available but not the strongest signal from our pitch on our rainy day!

    Disliked: 

    Pilons overhead crackled on an evening which disturbed a light sleeper in our group, but nothing the campsite was responsible for, just to be aware of when selecting your pitch on arrival.
    Pitches could be flatter.

    This is one if the best campsites we have ever stayed in. Absolutely faultless!
    The facilities were spotless & plenty of them. Pitches were well spaced & we could leave the car right next to it.

    Farm shop was lovely & stocked everything you'd need.

    Daniel, the manager couldn't have been better, really friendly & polite at all times.

    Will return & will recommend.

Local attractions

Higher Moor Farm is minutes away from the 2012 Olympic sailing venue of Weymouth, with its sandy bay, Georgian seafront, first-class watersports facilities, Sea Life Centre and regular events including dragon boat racing and fireworks festivals. (Keep an eye out for the sand modeller, whose family has been sculpting sand in Weymouth for generations.) Portland’s also crammed with watersports opps including scuba diving, and you can go fishing and rock climbing here too.

The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is minutes away from the campsite with its ancient cliffs, walks, biking and riding trails, boat trips, angling and fossil-hunting: try the long shingle stretch at nearby Chesil Beach or Lyme Regis.

If you like your history a few million years more modern, try Dorchester with its Roman amphitheatre, or go on a history tour of Dorset to take in its castles, stately homes and gardens as well as its ancient forts and landmarks.

For birdwatching and wildlife spotting, the RSPB reserve Radipole Lake is about five miles away from Higher Moor and has regular events, family activities and a visitor centre. There’s also the popular Studland Beach & Nature Reserve along the coast at Swanage, which was the inspiration for Toytown in the Noddy stories and which has all six species of British reptiles dwelling round about.

If you have mini naturalists in the family, they’ll also like walking among the mute swan colony at Abbotsbury Swannery, chattering with the inhabitants at the Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre or feeling fancy at the (free) Fancys Family Farm in Portland.

Elsewhere in Dorset, the appropriately-named Poole with its natural harbour is another highly popular spot with watersports enthusiasts and is easily accessible from Higher Moor, as is the neighbouring seaside town of Bournemouth. For other day trips, try Swanage, Wareham or East Bay – or take a ferry ride to one of the Channel Islands from Weymouth.
