Excellent CL

Crackmoor Farm
We only spent one night, but really liked this CL and when we are in the area again we would book for longer. Very peaceful site, with plenty of room for five units. Electric has good voltage and the water pressure is very good too. Convenient to Sherborne, where there is lots to see and do.

Two enjoyable weeks

Crackmoor Farm
We had a great fortnight here, very wet when we arrived for a couple of days so crossing the farm track was a challenge, but it dried eventually. We parked at the top of the field so blocks needed but there are pitches at the bottom which are flatter. Busy working farm but the owners always available for a chat. Only two things we didn't like. The Elsan disposal is simply not deep enough, so 'evidence' always on view. Secondly the mobile signal was poor so wi-fi data often unobtainable, not the fault of the owners of course. Plenty of delightful towns and villages within a 25 mile radius, and the gardens of Sherborne 'new' castle are a must-see.

Very nice farm site

Crackmoor Farm
Nice farm setting, paddock is lawned and part sloping but tall hedges to shield from farm activity. Some minor road, train and animal noise but not bad. Owners welcoming and friendly and have us info on walks. 2 mile walk to Sherborne town across country with castle, Abbey and shops there. Pub and coop in other direction. All walks involve some hills! Black waste and water services basic but nicely shielded by planting Only quibble was bins full and not emptied regularly but they are very busy working farm. Overall very nice stay

Cracking Value CL

Crackmoor Farm
Stayed two nights in motorhome, paddock is nice, well cut but slightly sloping so levelling blocks a good idea. Scenery is splendid and site is close to many places of interest. Generally peaceful and quiet only broken by the occasional cow or tractor. Some faint road noise during the day and a railway line is 1/4 mile away so occasional sound of passing trains but nothing to spoil the general tranquility of this rural venue. For a charge of £10 you get a nicely spaced pitch with EHU, water tap, grey water disposal point that you can drive your motorhome up to and Elsan emptying point. These facilities are without frills but very functional and for £10 per night its cracking value. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

Nice small well kept CL

Crackmoor Farm
Well situated just outside Sherbourne and far enough away from the main road in noise terms although the railway was audible but not a problem. A very slightly sloping site with good well kept grass the water and chemical disposal points within a small hedged block just near the access gate. Plenty of space with the electric points well positioned around the completely hedged site. Very helpful and obliging owners. Excellent value at £10.
