well organised site

Stayed here with my caravan last week for the Bridport Folk festival. the site is behind the shop and has good views across fields to Bridport and the sea. Each caravan space has its own tap and the toilet etc is at the beginning of the caravan row. The shop is very well used by local people and has most meats and veg all locally produced,some from the farm. There is a little road noise but may be that was because we were in the closest pitch to the road. There is a foot path into Bridport which is a very nice town. The road up to the site is narrow in places and busy at certain times. I would recommend this site to other members.

Wow, great CL

Just spent 16 nights on this fabulous CL site. Stunning views across the countryside and over West Bay in the distance. Lots to do within 25 miles of the site. A well stocked farm shop with fresh produce dailey and even a cafe for a nice breakfast, lunch or just a slice of cake.and coffee. Great dog walks around the farm fields. Booked again for 2020.

What a shame.

This must be one of the best C.L.s we have stayed at. Stunning location with views over Bridport and West Bay to the sea. Brilliant Farm shop which seems always busy, staff always polite and friendly. Enjoyed our stay so much, we have booked again for next year. As usual, there is always something to spoil the visit, this time it is owners not controling there dogs, off the lead and running around barking and worrying the livestock. Cows with new calves in one field, sheep in the other. Come on dog owning members, don't be so selfish. This was by two different outfits during our stay.

Mixed review

I unfortunately have a mixed review. The site is well laid out with a footpath leading directly from one corner and a lovely view over Bridport with a glimpse of West Bay. On the downside, there are numerous cars and vans up and down the lane which is literally directly behind the site and that coupled with tractors, sometimes starting as early as 6am, didn't feel very tranquil! Great if you are up at 6am but that is too early even for me on a Bank Holiday. I am aware that it is a working farm but we usually stay on these and haven't really had this problem before. Maybe the pitches are in the wrong place with regard to the 'working' part. The other thing I found was, being an adult only site, whilst sitting out in the evening, reading and enjoying a glass of wine, peace was shattered by screeching/screaming children just behind the hedge. Apparently these were families which were staying in the holiday cottages on the same farm. So, overall, if none of the above bothers you, then a great little site. If you are looking for peace and quiet then possibly not.
