Large Site

Stayed for a short time on this large affiliated site at the beginning of July when weather was hot & dry. It was well cared for with 3 clean facility blocks – 1 old 2 newer with individual shower rooms. Helpful friendly young reception staff in the reception/shop which had a reasonable selection of basic food essentials and a lot of camping bits & children’s toys. There is a play area, bar & 3 take away catering trailers – 1 for breakfast, 1 Pizza & 1 Fish & Chips on different evenings. A busy popular site especially at week ends with families. Lots of tent campers as well as caravans & some motorhomes. Need to drive or catch bus at top of lane to Weymouth for beach. Many pitches need levellers. There are public footpaths direct from site onto coast path & small church of “Moonfleet” book fame but found nothing else of interest within easy walking distance.

Weekend stay in the snow.

Apart from heavy snow during our stay we found this site was fine. Good sized hard standings although when busy the roads are narrow on the site & some may find it a challenge to park their caravan. The shower blocks were immaculate & staff friendly. I asked for a sea view which we were given but had it been busy my view would of not been so pleasing. Beautiful countryside around the site but families should be aware that the lagoon water edge area is not suitable for use as a beach, it was very unappealing & I wouldn’t even want to walk on it. Coastal path at the bottom of the site but unfortunately at this time of year it was very muddy. Families will love the bar & play area but for me I personally think it would seem far too congested at busier times & the whole rows of caravans looking into each other’s windows just isn’t for me. I therefore think I should try a CL which may be more suitable.

Fab Holiday beginning of October 2017

We recently stayed here for a week at the beginning of October, had no issues what so ever, we stayed on a hard standing service pitch, which wasn't level, but when you look around at the site, a lot of the pitches slope, but most caravan owners are prepared for this. Toilets were lovely and clean and warm, and the shower block was the same, the heated floor was great fully received after a days walking, hot shower, and they were clean. The Barn (Bar) was open Thursday, Friday and Saturday whilst we were there, they were very friendly and welcoming, and the area with the log burner in and the settees around was lovely, and good way to get to talk to other holiday makers. Dogs are welcome and they encourage you to order your takeaway and you can eat it in front of the fire. We did walk into Chickerell down the footpath, then a bit of road, it takes about 20 minutes, please get a torch and charge your batteries, it is pitch black, but a good adventure!!! I would recommend The Turks Head in Chickerell, for when the bar on site isn't open, friendly staff and the food is lovely, dogs welcome too. We had a great time, walking, biking, fossil hunting and crabbing.

Good and Bad

We stayed here for a week late September 2017. The site has stunning views over the lagoon but has little else to recommend it. The majority of the pitches slope significantly - and the width of some of the hardstanding pitches is so small that if you use an awning, half of it will be on the grass ! Other 'complaints' would be the lack of lighting at night, only warm water in the shower block, and a very poor WiFi (advertised as covering the whole site). Notwithstanding all of this, the site was quiet and the facilities clean.
