Not the best, not the worst

Visited for 3 nights in July. The site is untidy looking. I think it is that the hard-standings are cinder and ill-defined with the hard-standings merging into the grass in a hap-hazard way. Nevertheless, it is functional. There is no shower and just a small hut with a toilet and chemical disposal. Hand-towel bin was overflowing when we arrived and it wasn't emptied during our stay. The electrics worked fine and each pitch has its own water tap (no waste water point though). We didn't see the owner until day 2 to pay... cash only. There were sheep in the next field and it was a lovely outlook. The site is adults only and dog-friendly but there are big gaps in the fencing/gates into the sheep field. We had to keep ours on a leads. All in all it was a pleasant stay but it felt very average especially for £15pn. This site is owned by the same family that owns the Washingpool Farm CL and that is a better choice IMO and we will stay there next time.

Not quiet perfect

On arrival I was very disappointed on how untidy the site looked. The grass had been cut went it was long and was left on the grass.. the gravel wasn’t very pleasing to the eye. The first pitch is near a very untidy open barn type and is also so close to the entrance that people coming in and out would be on top of your van. On the plus side, the pitches are fully serviced and the owner is very pleasant. I am a perfectionist and a lot of people don’t mind this things but I like things to be nice..

Lovely CL

A great CL with spacious, fully serviced pitches and a lovely view. There is a toilet if you need it and a good Elsan point. It is very handy for the coast and Bridport has good shopping facilities. It is very peaceful and good value for money, we are unable to find fault.

May Break

We stayed here at the end of May. All facilities were clean and tidy, Husband loved the Elson point, (he needs to get out more!!) very well thought out and easy to use. Allan came round a few times to cut the grass and empty rubbish etc. and always had time for a friendly chat but not intrusive. As others have said the farm shop is excellent, lots of different things on offer and very friendly staff. Although there isn't a dog walk on site just a few hundred yards up the road there is a designated dog walk round a playing field, just big enough for the quick bedtime walk but plenty of footpaths if you want to go further afield.We cycled the lanes and ate in a couple of village pubs but gave the local one, a few hundred yards up the road a miss!! Lots of bats from the barn to sit and watch with a glass of wine, my idea of heaven.

Wonderful CL

We had a wonderful stay at Bide Yer CL, Site beautifully maintained, Elson Point best I've ever seen, owner very welcoming, lovely views, the farm shop near by makes a fabulous breakfast, all the area is wonderful to explore. had a fab stay and looking forward to our next visit. The only down side to our stay was a couple who had a dog, which was noisy, allowed it to bark, at first the woman kept it under control but seem to become complacent as the days went on, this was no fault of the CL owners, just inconsiderate dog owners. Would recommend CL.
