Over crowded

This is a beautiful, well maintained site in an ideal location just along the road from Mangerton Mill. However, it is a relative small field laid out permanently for 7 units. This website says, "Two van licenced site adjacent." but this is not the case. All 7 units are in the same field and it feels very cramped. We felt that privacy was at a premium. We were given pitch 7 and our friends were given pitch 6, but if we had had strangers next to us we would have been very unhappy as there was very little space between us.

Lovely CL

Stayed here for 14 nights from 3rd June. Excellent CL in a picturesque area.  Very peaceful. Owners Anne and Colin made us very welcome. Toured around Dorset visiting lots of lovely places.  Found the locals very friendly and helpful and hope to return sometime in the future.

Pleasant site

Can't fault the site at all, it was very peaceful, nicely maintained basic site with friendly hosts. Mangerton mill is a lovely place to visit within walking distance, bridport and west bay 5 mins by car. Highly recommend. The only negative point is nothing to do with the site at all but access to it. If coming in from the A35 westbound from Dorchester do not take a right turn as you come into Bridport, make sure you go all the way in to the roundabout and take a right from there. Our satnav took us down a very narrow lane and over a sharp corner onto a bridge, only just made it through and glad we didn't meet anything coming towards us.

Darzet Delight

A pleasant well maintained CL. Although spacious some parts slope and a couple of strategically placed blocks may be required. The entrance is on a bit of a blind bend and caution is required exiting the site. The quiet mile long lane, although narrow has a number of passing places and one would be unfortunate to encounter a tractor with a trailer full of hay bales or another caravan. There is a chalkboard for arrivals and the owners will generally call during the evening. This part of Dorset is abounding in steep hills and seems to have more single lane roads that the Scottish highlands which made travelling around a trifle tedious.

perfect pitch near bridport

very pleasing location, and a pleasant welcome by Mrs Moore. Facilities are basic, but very clean and in any event caravans and motorhomes are kitted out so site facilities are not so important. Good walks from the site. The directions are spot on but you need to not mind driving down a narrow lane. Luckily, there are passing places and we did not meet another caravan arriving or leaving. We will use this site again.  One point to bear in mind when selecting a pitch is to consider the slope of the land.  We chose the best which was the lowest and thank goodness for motor movers to get us out (although Mrs Moore did say a tractor is available)
