    Everything! The space (even though it was busy)! The facilities were easily accessible and clean. The village has a good pub and well stocked shop close by and a bus stop for easy access to Weymouth.
    I requested, when I booked, that we would like two pitches next to each other for us and my daughter and her partner. This was no problem at all and I got exactly what I asked for.
    We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at the dairy farm.
    Thank you.....we will be back!!.

Large open pitch, room to stretch out. Toilets and showers ... 17/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Paul F. Confirmed

  • Fully-serviced grass pitch (large, super)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Large open pitch, room to stretch out. Toilets and showers clean and plenty of hot water. Good walk over the fields for the dogs. Owner very helpful and chatty. Relaxed atmosphere. Good pub a short walking distance from the campsite entrance. In addition a village shop that has a good stock of most edible goods, if not a little pricey.

    Disliked: 

    Access track a little unkempt, not a show stopper but makes for some dusty conditions in dry weather. If approaching from the Weymouth direction take care as if someone is exiting, entry could be difficult, particularly as visibility is limited. Whilst there is plenty of hot water in the showers, there is no control over temperature which could be uncomfortable for the very young or the elderly.

Level pitches, very friendly staff 10/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom James A. Confirmed

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch (medium, semi-serviced)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Loved the fact that this site has a lot of seasonal caravans, this makes for a peaceful site despite the fact that it is one large open field. Shower and toilet facilities great, although in a portacabin they are lovely. Quiet in the evening, enjoyed an England match at the pub and used the farm shop too. Easy cycling along the Hardy way to local attractions, bonus to not be cycling on the road. No need to check in at reception, you receive an email with your pitch number.

    Disliked: 

    We found the showers too hot, although I am sure they would have been a good temperature for colder times. There's not much shade on site either. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi didn't reach our pitch.

Local attractions

The Kings Arms is our local pub and is located 200 yards from the site.

The Hardy Monument is an ideal way to get a view of Dorset and its unique and spectacular coastline.

Abbotsbury is a must with its world famous swannery, sub-tropical gardens and children's play centre. The village itself is very pretty with a wide range of craft shops and tea rooms to tempt you.

St Catherine's chapel is a pleasant stroll away and on the way back you have to walk past the shop so why not have an ice cream?

Weymouth beach with its beautiful golden sands that are safe for children play and swim. The attractions and eateries are endless. The sand sculptures are amazing and the fair rides and trampoline are always a hit with the kids.

Brewers Quay is also a lovely place to go as you feel like you are going back in time as you walk along the cobbled streets and the shops are very interesting.

Portland is a very rugged place you can visit the light house and scramble over the rocks looking for fossils enjoying the sea and surrounding coastline in it's rawest form.

For the best view of the Jurassic Coast - come down the hill from the top of Portland. You can nearly see the whole of the Chesil Beach, it is absolutely breathtaking.

Monkey World is also a great day out: there are the monkeys which are fascinating creatures, but not only that, you can get the chance to behave like one on the huge adventure playground!
