A great find

From the initial phone call to the valuable communication (during COVID) and finally meeting Lara was superb. It’s a lovely site in a little village. We arrived with our 8m and 8ft wide caravan and squeezed through the road and into the field. It was probably easier leaving than arriving and Jules kindly moved his car so we had more room. Lara runs a cafe (sadly closed this summer - COVID) and makes homemade produce from her back garden! We had the takeaway cream tea for £10 for 4!! Scones were a delight and the jam was just gorgeous so we had to purchase a few for presents! Recycling facilities are great on site where you sort your rubbish and Lara even has a compost bin. All so invaluable in this day and age. Kids loved getting the water and hubby emptied the toilet in a toilet- he did comment it had the potential for splashback. There is a footpath that runs through the field- this was used mostly in the evenings by locals walking dogs on leads. A river runs at the side. Whilst kids could play in this of an older age it is certainly not for our kids (8 & 5). Lara was helpful for the local sites, including a walk down to Lodmoor if you park at the park and ride - safe for kids biking too. Must see is Abbotsbury village with the church and playground. Lots of cafes available. Weymouth was too busy for us to maintain distancing so can’t comment but we enjoyed the crazy golf at the Sealife, Lodmoor Would we go back- absolutely though we may choose to get a smaller van!

Great nights stay at a lovely little CL.

Had a lovely overnight stay here. Close enough to Weymouth and Jurassic coast but set in the countryside so absolutely peaceful. Huge site with loads of space. Owner was absolutely lovely as were the other caravan owners. Could have stayed longer if we had had time and would certainly return!

wonderful CL.

What a little gem! Lovely lawned site with plenty of space and beautiful walks by the river straight from the site. Lara the owner couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. Her Tea Garden opposite is a must even made us a beautiful birthday cake! Will definitely be back when visiting this beautiful area.

Wonderful CL to stay at

l would recommend this CL to all members. Beautiful setting, peaceful, lots of birdsong. Fantastic welcome from Lara the site owner, who couldn't do enough to help during our stay. Lovely walks by the river straight off the site. You must sample Lara's home made scones and cakes and have a tea in the garden opposite. The new sculpture park near Dorchester is a must visit (No under 14s) A great place to stay.

Easter Break

We have just returned from a lovely break at this site. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely warm welcome and given all the information that you need when arriving a new site. We popped out for the afternoon and when we returned we had been left a little welcome pack on our step which was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and Lara and Jules were always happy to stop for a chat. Lara and Jules encourage recycling on the site which was great as we've stayed on many sites where it just isn't done. The site is lovely, spacious and quiet and something that really attracted us was the no dogs. There is a footpath that runs through the middle of the site but this did not cause us any problems and walkers are encouraged to keep to the path by lower cut grass marking the way. We had taken our bikes and were able to cycle into Weymouth and onto Portland car free until we reached Portland. Lara runs a little stall selling homemade chutneys, chicken and duck eggs. Thank you for a great stay, we definitely will be back.
