Real camping, with a reasonable price tag. There are limited frills at this friendly, farm-based site - it’s basically a large field with water supply and a couple of portable toilets (bring your own toilet tent if staying for two or more nights) - but guests can use the showers, bar and sports facilities in the sports centre over the road. There’s also a farm shop and tea room selling lovely grub, including a bumper fry-up with home-grown bangers and bacon. Redlands Farm is relaxed and uncrowded, with verdant views, yet really close to Weymouth (a good place to splurge all the money you saved on your pitch...)

Route directions

Head towards Weymouth on the A354 - there is now a new bypass going into Weymouth. When you reach the roundabout opposite Morrisons supermarket, take the third exit which will take you along the Dorchester Road. After 500m on that road (opposite the BP garage) is a board at the top of the lane that says 'Farmer P farm shop'. Turn down that lane and pull in 20 yards on the right and pop into the shop for directions to the site. Grid Ref SY6682682047, postcode DT3 5AP.

Local attractions

Redlands residents can either walk into Weymouth - a mile and a half away - or hop aboard one of the local buses that pass the site every ten minutes. It’s a classic seaside resort, with a great sandy beach, three-mile prom, donkeys, Punch and Judy, pedaloes and the like, plus a sea life park, theatre and cinema. There are good sporting facilities too, including an indoor pool, bowling alley, tennis and golf, plus deep sea fishing trips from the busy harbour. From here, visitors can also take a trip over to the Channel Islands on one of the local ferries. Portland, six miles from Redlands, was the venue for the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events, with sailing and windsurfing schools as well as regular spectator events. Kite surfing and scuba diving are also on offer in the area. The countryside around the campsite is good for walking, and there’s an RSPB nature reserve about a mile up the road.
