Well kept

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

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.

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.

Beautiful Bride Valley

This is set in a stunning location overlooking the glorious Bride Valley. Very simple site with just electric and well kept grass. The site is on a slope but fairly level at the top of the field where the hook ups are. Care is needed after any heavy rain as it can be a bit soggy if your vehicle doesn't cope well on soft ground. We helped our neighbours out when their car couldn't quite make it. That said it is well worth a visit and is top of our list of CLs. The tea room serves a fab full english breakfast which we sampled every morning of our stay. The only problem we encountered on our arrival was the electric tripped when we hooked up and tripped everyone elses as well. It took a little while to get sorted but was all done with good humour and a chance to have a chat with our neighbours while we waited.

Pleasant stay

Pleasant site, easy to find off the main road (Egg Cup Tearooms) and site behind the tea rooms. We did not use the tea rooms but they seemed quite busy. Some road noise from motorbikes. Good walking nearby, about 15 mins walk to the SW Coastal path and on to Abbotsbury - return by the ridge walk. It is also an interesting 'animal farm' with a variety of animals including ostrich, chip muncks and goats. Recommend the Crown at Pucknowle for a meal.
