Higher Moor Farm Campsite: Welcome to the farm

General

  • Family-run for over 40 years

Let your spirits soar at Higher Moor Farm Campsite, 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.

    Very friendly, helpful staff. On our arrival day we got there later than expected but we let them know and they were more than helpful. Also, realising after set up that the shop was closed, they happily reopened so we could buy food for the night.

    The facilities were kept very clean. The best I’ve seen. The showers are decent too. Not just a dribble on the head.
    The site itself also kept very clean at all times.

    The kids loved the park and playing football/games outside with all the other kids on the site. Being a smaller site we could see them at all times which made it easier for us to relax too having easy reach of everything.

    April is a good time to go (if you have the weather) as not overly busy.

    Disliked: 

    If anything, I’d say the windows and doors being open all the time in the toilet/shower block made it rather chilly when you stepped out of the shower!

Local attractions

Higher Moor Farm Campsite 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 options 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.
