Disappointing

Be aware that this CL is a busy working farm which is reflected in the condition of the approach to the field through the farmyard and water filled pot holed lane. Sadly the grass sloping field had not been cut so was slippy and wet under foot. Eventually found the EHU point by following another cable as it was hidden in the nettle undergrowth, as was a garden pub style table. The toilet block was a simple affair with a stone floor perpetually wet due to an ill fitting door. No coat hook or shelf available. There is a rusty honesty box next to the COVID cleansing station with empty sanitiser at the entrance. A large wheeled blue commercial waste bin is in the farm, no recycling. No WiFi to speak of and poor radio reception. Came across the owner and made these points known to him but in his own words said he only had the CL for pin money and we could always go elsewhere! The great views, the peacefulness, the bird songs and the closeness to many walks were saving points but overall very disappointing - even for £15 per night. We stayed here for three nights and it did rain for some of that time. The field was cut an hour after meeting George. - visit searchforsites app for various photos.

Fantastic site. Secluded, picturesque and very welcoming.

Amazing location with incredible views over the Dorset coastline. Fantastic walk to the south west coast path through beautiful landscapes gardens. Keep going across the rolling hills to Tyneham Village and beyond. Couldn’t ask for much more. Would have received a perfect score if signal coverage was better (3G 2 bar at best) and pitch on slope but can’t hold the site owners responsible for that! Plus Clavells restaurant in Kimmeridge village does a filling and delicious fish finger sandwich.

Very welcoming, friendly and peaceful

We have just had two weeks on this lovely quiet site, the pitch is a little sloping but I've been on much worse, facilities are good, there is a minor issue with the toilet door sticking but all fine & clean. Emma, was a regular visitor to site and made an effort to welcome all new vans on the site, if you don't happen to see her when stopping for just one night there are facilities to put payments etc in a dedicated post box with details for cheques etc. Great location for lovely walks along the coast paths, also for exploring all local beauty spots, Swanage, corfe , studland, Arne nature reserve, Wareham etc. The farm is busy but doesn't affect the site and all the people working on the farm are very welcoming and polite. Great little site and we will be back

Great CL

Stayed here for two nights in late July. Lovely view over the sea/Isle of Portland, plenty of space, all the facilities worked just fine and there was a warm and friendly welcome from the owner. Easy access to local walks and we had no problems with getting there in our motorhome. Definitely one to come back to.

Great views ,very peaceful, could be better though

Just had a scorching week on site. Basic site ,quite sloping ( you will need levellers. ) Great views of Kimmeridge bay and Purbeck hills. Grass was very long but ok in the warm weather , would be a bit soggy in the rain. Their is a basic toilet on site but you will need your own toilet paper.Only saw owner once which was problem when going to pay or set up. Plenty of butterflies, birds, and farm animals to see. Rugged walk via coastal path to Kimmeridge bay ( about 2.5 miles ) Beware sat nav directions because it will take you via 1.5 gradient over the hill to site , I just managed it in motorhome but was a bit of a white knuckle ride ( other campers got caught out too ! ) Last 200 yds to site is interesting through farm yard.Best approach is via Corfe Castle . Overall a great stay but if site was tidied up it would be so much better.
