Hardstanding pitches and facilities

General

  • Quiet farm site surrounded by footpaths in the Dorset village of Ansty
  • Half an hour's drive from Weymouth, Poole and the Jurassic Coast
  • Farm shop on site; pub with food next door

They might not make beer at Brewery Farm, but this fab Dorset site serves up good times in grand surrounds, and there's a pub right next door for good measure...

The said hostelry keeps the celebrated ales of the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery, who began their operation right here in the village of Ansty in the 18th century... and who instantly profited from a contract to supply beer to the army camped hereabouts waiting to see off Napoleon’s fleet.

If you’re into history, there’s lots of it to be supped and savoured in the area; same goes for walks, beaches, boat rides... the whole lot of it easily accessible from a berth on this peaceful and friendly site.

Facilities include a shop, selling the farm’s own produce; if you want to grill up a feast alfresco, go ahead, barbecues are permitted. The suitably ancient and rural inn over the road serves fresh locally-sourced food as well.

Fancy exploring the area slowly? Ask the team to point you towards the network of country footpaths, through some of Dorset’s finest countryside.

  • Liked: 

    Absolutely superb views and these are not impeded by any other vans due to the terraced nature of the site.
    Really relaxed on arrival and allowed up to pick our own pitch, so we have lovely views across the fields. Very friendly staff. On site shop with all the essentials. Brand new shower block and toilet facilities which were very clean, warm and good hot showers. All in all a cracking little place to stay!

    Disliked: 

    Chemical disposal and grey waste were the same disposal point, which was opening the manhole straight into the cesspit below.

    Disliked: 

    The pitch we had made it a bit difficult to put up an awning , and the WiFi not very good.

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback Kevin, we are pleased you enjoyed our lovely views. With our rural location sometimes the WiFi does not always perform at its optimum, but do always let us know so we can double check there isn't any problems.

We are very lucky to have such wonderful amenities in our lovely village with both the pub and shop just a stones throw away!

Local attractions

If beaches are your bag, you’ve hit the bi -time here as the Jurassic Coast is studded not just with fossils but sandy coves and rocky inlets: Lulworth Cove is a 40-minute drive away, and if you fancy something wilder, Winspit beach is accessible only by a footpath from Worth Matravers (45 minutes).

Another fine way to explore the coast is to make for Weymouth or Poole, both half an hour away, for a boat cruise. Both towns are crammed with further family-friendly attractions including funfairs and an aquarium in Weymouth, and slides and chutes and waterfalls at Poole’s Splashdown waterpark. Monkey World and the Tank Museum are also around half an hour away.

For an easy way to see the chalk hills and valleys of inland Dorset, take a seat on the Swanage Railway (50 minutes) for steam rides between the coast and Corfe Castle (40 minutes by car). The castle is well worth clambering over; if anyone’s missing the water, make for the nearby Dorset Waterpark for floating inflatable obstacle courses in a wooded lakeland setting.

For another day out with a difference, the graceful residents of Abbotsbury Swannery (45 minutes) were once kept by local monks for the purposes of scoffing at banquets. You can now visit the country's only nesting colony of mute swans and feed them, as well as get lost in the maze, hurtle about the adventure playground and roam the nearby subtropical gardens.

Must see

  • Hardy's Birthplace (7.3 miles)
  • The Tank Museum (10.1 miles)
  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (10.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Hardy's Cottage (7.4 miles)
  • Clouds Hill (8.5 miles)
