Campervan Visit September 2019

As previous review stated the size of the CL is much less than the picture suggests. However the grass pitches appeared well drained and cared for although we did need levellers. A beautiful location and peaceful site and we experienced little road noise in spite of its close proximity. We did not use the "toilet". The farm shop had limited opening when we visited. Walking from the site involves a steep climb to get out of Enford Bottom and the usual permissive route through the neighbouring field was not used as they had put a bull in the field along with the cows and calves! Once you get out of the valley there is some excellent walking although some of the public bridleways were impassable. Walking along the main road is potentially dangerous as it is narrow and there is no escape onto a verge. For this reason we did not even attempt to access the very good nearby tramway cycle path.

Owners appear to have lost interest in the upkeep of parts of this CL

Visited in September. Shoddy toilet in a broken dirty portaloo, no hand washing facilities within toilet, should not be allowed to list this as a toilet in the description! Small strip of field, that looking at previous photos is now less than half the size it was. No rules on where to pitch. 6 EHU points, 3 shared water taps.  Bins available in a broken fenced off area, but no recycling available. Nicely cut grass and peaceful site. but it is a sloping site, so it is not easy to pitch in traditional way. Also as the site is narrow, can be hard to manoeuvre. Would not stay again

Wonderful!

This was our 2nd stay at this peaceful CL. Everything about it is perfect for us. We’ve been CL caravanners for many years and have become a little disappointed with the way many CL’s have become too manicured. Enford Bottom has all the qualities of good old fashioned CL’s. A large well cut field with beautiful views, no road noise and sheep and cows in the surrounding fields. But with up to date mod cons. Electric hook ups and your own tap. We visited the well stocked farm shop and bought a very reasonably priced haunch of wild venison. It’s was the best venison we’ve ever tasted. Highly recommended! Thank you, Sylvia and Tony

Lovely site.

We stayed at this site over the August bank holiday after we found out Dorset Steam Fair pay on arrival camping was fully booked. I called the site and we traveled down the same day. Trevor and Sue saved our holiday. Thank you so much for letting us stay on your farm. We will be planning many more trips for next year and hope to come and stay again. Well recommended, lovely, welcoming couple and the farm shop is great. Thanks again. Julia and Luke.
