Perfect weekend break

East Fleet Farm Touring Park
My first time at this site, but definitely won’t be my last, especially as it’s only an hour away from home so perfect for a last minute break. Great facilities, spotlessly clean and they’ve absolutely nailed great customer service. Check in was easy, didn’t even have to get out of my motorhome. Pitches are pre-allocated which was a concern before arrival as I didn’t know what I’d do if I didn’t like the allocated pitch - wasn’t an issue as my pitch was great! Pub on site allows you to use their to eat takeaways from the on-site food vans or from nearby local businesses - they even do the washing up for you. Brilliant idea! Different food vans open on different days - we tried the fish & chips which were fab but the other options looked good too. I didn’t check all the shower blocks but my nearest had shower, basin & wc in individual cubicles. Well stocked shop. Staff were friendly and hard working. Lots of great views and walks from the site. Highly recommend.

Very hairy approach road if you have a long motorhome or are towing!

East Fleet Farm Touring Park
The approach road to the site is down an undulating, steep in parts, narrow private road - not made any easier by local homeowners who appear to want make things more difficult by parking their vehicles on the road. There is a very sharp bend, at a point of only single access, which you cannot see around - although there is a mirror to slightly help view if anything is heading your way. Going the other way, the bus stop most handy to the site is a tidy half-mile walk up an undulating hill. It is next door to an Aldi. It’s about a 4 mile hilly walk into Weymouth. We had originally booked a hard standing, but when talking to the reception, were told if we wanted a view, we’d be better off with a grass pitch. We agreed to a grass pitch and the one pitch we were directed to and the “view” we were given was of a hedge! The very friendly and accommodating reception team then gave us a choice of much better (for us) pitches in what they called the ‘camping area’, but it turned out that there were mainly caravans and a motorhomes in situ. At least we could see the beach and sea - which is the main reason we picked the site. If we’d have preferred to just view a hedge, we could have visited and been anywhere. If you’re not bothered what you’re looking out at, then the very large site is well laid out divided into smaller areas of space of 4 or 6 units separated from the next lot of pitches by hedges. This gives a sense of privacy. Because the bus stop is up a hill, we decided to us the local taxi service - a round-trip to Weymouth cost us 22 pounds. The taxi driver asked us where we’d got his details from because he’d though he’d removed all his contact cards from reception - he told us it’s not a location favoured by the taxi firms because of the difficulty of the approach road. What we liked about the facilities was the fact that many of the showers have their own ‘en-suite’ toilet. Everything was kept very clean. The on-site bar and the festival eateries (which vary each evening: fish and chips, pizzas, etc) are not something that drew us to the site, but we could see that they were very popular indeed. The shop is also well stocked with camping/caravanning essentials and basic groceries. The ‘camping area’, which is the part of the site furthest away from reception and facilities, we noticed that a certain number of the campers did not keep their dogs on a lead and one particularly noisy party totally ignored the fact that one of their dogs wandered onto an adjoining area and fouled it. There are some lovely walks from the site and it is adjacent to the coastal path. There is a small play park for the children on site and a separate dog walking field. The staff are extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful.

A great site with many positives

East Fleet Farm Touring Park
This was our first visit, and from the time we arrived until we left our stay was great. Reception and site information were delivered first class, facilities were good and clean, close to a bus stop and great for access to the SW Coastal Path. Walked to Langton Herring and stopped for a couple in the lovely Elm Tree Inn. Walked into Weymouth (min 1hr) and caught the bus back. Nice pub on site and the Pizza takeaway is delicious. Pitches are well spaced in rows and shielded from the row behind by hedges, however I did feel the spacing across the access roads (or maybe the access roads are narrow) did give the feeling of a lack of personal space. Other than this small point, a lovely site with so many things going for it

East Fleet Farm Touring Park
Oh what a lovely site check in was 1st class and couldn't have asked for a better pitch right near toilets and showers. Facilities were kept nice and clean and the food vans on site were a bonus ( pizza was delicious ) Having a bar onsite was very good as they let you take the food in from vans or you can have a takeaway delivered. Cycle route into weymouth ( straight across at the bottom of lane) was very good as it took you right into town Would definitely recommend this site and will return when down this way again

Good Family Site

East Fleet Farm Touring Park
Good traditional family site, easy check in and access down a lane with plenty of passing places. Some pitches have lovely views of The Fleet, Chisel beach and the sea.  Mixture of pitch types including fully serviced, grass or hard standing. Reasonable Wi-Fi and TV signal. Excellent toilet facilities and fully stocked shop with camping and Caravan accessories. Lovely on site bar along with catering vans.  Excellent children's area with climbing frames etc and at the top of the site a separate play area with goal posts and a dog walking.  Direct access to coastal path and the Fleet.
