Lovely site

A warm welcome from Judith at this lovely well-maintained site. We particularly appreciated the dog walks from the site and the location - perfect for exploring the beauty spots of Dorset.

Lovely first get away this year !

Thankyou Judith for a lovely peaceful week in Dorset ! Returned to this site for the first time after "Lockdown" and received a lovely warm & friendly welcome from Judith ! It was nice to see the little Hefers galloping down the lane chasing after the tractor carrying their hay! Lovely views across the countryside too. All very relaxing.

Lovely peaceful stay

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing 3 night stay at South Admiston farm. Judith was so welcoming and friendly. We loved staying on the farm even though we are farmers ourselves! The site is so neat and tidy and we had a great pitch with wonderful views across the fields and loved watching the cattle and deer. The walks through the woods and fields are superb with breathtaking views. We hope we can visit again.

Tranquil night at this lovely site

We stayed for just one night at South Admiston and received a very warm welcome from Judith, who even sorted out an alternative pitch as the CL field was so soft, following weeks of rain. The location is the most peaceful we have ever visited; only the mooing of the farm's cows and some birdsong greeted us in the morning. Puddletown is a quiet village but the Blue Vinny pub/restaurant is welcoming and serves a decent pint. A truly great CL not far from the A35 route to the West Country

Great find

Lovely find in great area. Arrived on site to find a board with our name on so knew where to park. Owner came out and welcomed us along with a large folder full of useful information for site and info about area and places to visit. Load of leaflets too and can keep while you stay and hand back when leaving. Think this an excellent idea, more sites, big or small could do it. Had a lovely stay last week of May well spaced out and plenty of room. Recycling was good. Dog walk up through the woods is easy accessible. Would certainly use again if going to the area.
