Friendly welcome to a peaceful site

As others have reported, we were welcomed by Joan with a cup of tea and allowed to pitch wherever we liked. We chose a spot in the middle to get the most sunshine, but it required a long electric lead, which Joan would have lent us if we hadn't had our own extension. The only let down was the the up-keep of the toilet. It wasn't particularly clean, especially the hand-towel, and toilet paper ran out a couple of times. Be careful to securely bolt the door to avoid embarassing surprises, as my wife found out! Although not officially provided we found that wifi was accessible in a limited way through the BT WiFi system - free to BT customers. There was no mobile signal on EE. We had spectacular weather during our stay and made the most of what the gorgeous area has to offer, from cliff top walking to Durdle Door, visiting two Thomas Hardy (NT) properties and being amazed at the huge number of tanks at the Bovington museum.

Best CL we have ever stayed on

Being greeted personally by Joan was started of our stay, followed up shortly with tea and coffee was a very good start. We loved having wild deer on site, but you have to accept that they are wild animals. One deer was partial to a bit of bread but was very pushy if she didn't get enough and I was firm with her and walked away. You do have to be careful if you approach them, although sometimes they just run away. The traffic noise was higher at rush hours, but overnight not a problem at all, and as we live in London we are used to it. Don't let it put you off from coming to this site, it is absolutely lovely. Joan came and "visited" a couple of times to make sure we were OK, although I suspect part of it was to see our cat Stanley when he was outside in his crate! She was never intrusive. It is very central to get everywhere and it was a bonus to have a supermarket 10 mins walk away. Joan personally came out to say goodbye We will be booking again to come back next year.

Warm welcome

We were welcomed by Joan, the owner, with a cuppa and biscuits for our dogs. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The entrance to the site was easy and the surroundings were very peaceful. Lovely to see the deers up close and able to touch them. Would thoroughly recommend a visit and we will definatley return. Thank you Joan , for a very enjoyable stay.

Lovely little site

We spent a week here before Easter 2019 and had a lovely stay. we are a family of 6 plus a dog and could not have been made more welcome by Joan who greeted us on arrival with offers of tea and coffee and biscuits for our dog. She was very accommodating when we decided to pitch in a particular way to catch the morning sun in the awning too. The deer were unbelievably tame and a very welcome addition to our stay. The site is well placed as a base for visiting this area of Dorset and we managed to see lots of the Jurassic Coast during our stay. The site itself is a pleasant small field surrounded by trees so is nicely sheltered. The toilet was kept clean and functional and had hot water to the basin. We were aware of the nearby main road but it didn't particularly bother us and certainly didn't disturb our sleep. We didn't hear the neighbouring quarry at all and there was little traffic or noise from the neighbouring C&MH site. There is a well stocked Co-Op five minutes walk away and Tesco in Dorchester was only a short drive. The train station is 5 minutes away in the opposite direction and we did plan to use the train to go into Weymouth but ran out of time. We'll save that for next time as we will definitely be visiting again.

Lovely xmas break

Just spent a most relaxing few days here. Tea on arrival, and Joan could not have been more helpful. Deer came to greet us on arrival also, and returned regularly during our visit, even feeding from our hands. Such a treat. Apart from the odd car at peak times (did not bother us), was a lovely tranquil stay. So much to see and do around this part of Dorset, and all within a short drive. A CO-OP within walking distance supplies ample emergency supplies etc. We have pencilled this one in for a return trip. Had brake light fuse blow on hooking up, and Joan even managed to conjure up a fuse for that. All in all, a recommended little CL.
