So much potential

We booked this site as it was in an area we love, however after some concerns with the recent weather I contacted the owner to ensure the field was fit for purpose as we did not want the caravan to get muddy and spoil the weekend. We were reassured that the field was in good condition and has held up well even with all the poor weather, with this I did re-read the previous review from 2017 and thought why not go for it and give it a go. The entrance to the site and 50 yard drive to where the CL field is does leave a lot to be desired but having talked to the new owners they do have some really good plans and I hope they make the changes as this site has a lot of really good potential. The CL field itself is fairly flat and is split into 2 sections (we would recommend driving past the first section and use the back of the field as this does seem to be the sun trap. There is a lovely little stream running down the back of the CL. When I arrived Jim had already mowed the lawns and was busy ensuring he was removing as much mown grass as possible as he did not want it to spoil peoples visit by uncut grass all over the pitches. This site is definitely ideally situated for people who want to visit Bournemouth, Wareham, New Forrest (20 minute drive) and slightly further affeild Southampton, Dorchester, Weymouth and Salisbury (all within and hours drive) Positives Quiet and very peaceful Nicely Kept fields Friendly owners (Jim could not have done anymore for us Negatives Entrance to the CL needs a lot of hard work doing as it is an eye sore and will put people off Signage definitely needs improving (this is in hand) Remove the tractors and put in gates As the owners do not live onsite think about electronic bank transfers for payments Slightly a higher price currently than could be justified I would definitely recommend the CL and if all the changes that have been discussed are implemented and the price does not rocket and is kept to the £15 per night fee.

Disappointing

Having stayed before under previous ownership, I was disappointed this time. Firstly the access code had been changed since the booking and access took a long time after a tiring journey. It became evident that two of the five pitches were being used for semi-permanent residents, one had six vehicles visiting,(none of which matched the reg plate on the caravan) which spoiled the tranquillity of the site and I would question their club membership. The main point of CLs is their exclusivity for touring club members. Machinery also cluttered the site. Further disruption came whilst trying to relax on a Sunday afternoon with the long grass being cut within a few feet of our caravan and then not collecting the cuttings which got into everything. With more attention to its' visitors, this could be a nice site once again

An excellent CL

A very spacious site in fact pitches 3,4 and 5 cannot even see each other. Very quite, a nice site. Facilities are basic, an elsan point and a couple of dustbins for waste, but I guess if you want a big fancy site then you should go to a club site. This, I think, is an excellent CL, good easy access from a main road more or less level but no hard standing. We liked this site a lot and will certainly stay again when In this part of the world.
