Lovely

Vurlands Farm
We spent a week at this site and found it lovely. Slight road noise but it wasn't intrusive. Entry was easy (look on Google earth first). It was windy while we were there but the site is quite sheltered from the prevailing wind. We had cakes from the tea room which were lovely as was the sunday roast! We will be back if in the area again.

Brilliant site. No signage

Vurlands Farm
Had a good stay here. Wonderful views Good cafe, despite painfully slow service.No Caravan and Motorhome Club signs at entrance or any directing you to the CL, luckily the farm car park was empty so we could turn round , to go in the right entrance. main road quite busy, but very little road noise on site. Good TV reception. handy for West Bay, Bridport and Weymouth. Will definitely be coming back ( now we know which entrance to take ! ) . Reasonably priced.

Well kept

Vurlands Farm
Excellent kept site, is sloping so motor homes advised to pitch at top.  Small zoo on site with delightful sounds of some of the animals but a peaceful site.  Excellent tea rooms with home made food.  Cogden beach just down the road with national trust carpark very reasonable.

Good Site for Jurrasic Coast

Vurlands Farm
This site is great if you want to explore the Jurassic Coast. It is sloping, but the views are very good. It is just a simple field with electricity and water points. The teapot cafe does very good crab sandwiches, and excellent Dorset Apple cake, although their toilets are not available for people on the CL.

Great location, well kept site.

Vurlands Farm
Stayed for 10 days this May, caught some great weather luckily which made our stay even better.  It's a large field, slight sloping from top to bottom so levelling will be required however you pitch.  Adequate facilities; hook-up's, 2 water points, chemical waste disposal.  Whilst we were there the grass was cut twice so lovely and short.  The views across Bride Valley are gorgeous as mentioned by Janeez, misty mornings and glorious sunsets whilst we were there.  Tea rooms at the farm are really nice, we had tea and cakes one afternoon which were lovely (home baked).  There is an Animal Farm attached which we didn't visit but you can see a lot of it from the site, and hear it too, however it certainly isn't invasive, in fact we really enjoyed listening to the variety of different animal noises (even the cockerel at 5:00am!), it's so peaceful there that it really fitted in with the surroundings. Walking off-site is not recommended, the main road outside the site can be very busy and very fast with no real proper verge or walkway. However there is a National Trust car park approx 1 mile along toward Burton Bradstock (Cogden Beach) which was only £2 per day (free to members) from which you have easy access to the SW Coast Path and some great walking. We can definitely recommend the Anchor Inn at Burton Bradstock for eating out, fine dining in a pub setting, fantastic meal.  We will return here.
