Wood Farm gets a thumbs up from us!

We had 5 nights at this lovely site and would highly recommend it. We had some Caravan and Motorhome Cub vouchers to use and this park kindly accepted them when a different affiliated site would not.....so first good point! The site is well laid out and while big, does not feel so owing to the different areas and terracing. Views were great from most pitches of far reaching countryside. We had a standard unserviced pitch which was generous and well kept. The toilet/shower facilities were fantastic, each large room having a toilet, shower, wash basin, heater and hair drier. So much room to move around in and keep everything dry!They were extremely clean and perfect for the current social distancing! Two blocks meant no queues either. The shop was adequate for most basics including a daily newspaper and the staff were extremely helpful and courteous. We did not use the indoor pool but it looked great, as did the indoor play area which was currently closed. Unfortunately the visiting curry van had problems during our stay so did not appear but we were told of this to enable alternative food arrangements (an Indain takeaway delivered from Lyme Regis!) We did make use of the fish and chip van and the meal was superb. Plenty of walks from the site, both Charmouth and Lyme Regis reachable. We also made use of the bus service to Bridport and West Bay, the stop being a short walk from the site entrance. This obviously means that background road noise can be heard from this site but we did not find it at all obtrusive and the advantages outweigh this easily. We highly recommend this site and found it perfect for our short break and it was also extremely good value for money!

5 nights at Half Term

For personal reasons we had to cancel at the very last minute, that luckily rectified themselves by the following morning, the site has thoughtfully kept our booking open for us when we called back to see if we were still able to go. On arrive we were given a very warm welcome, despite being 15 mins after normal closing and escorted to our pitch. The pitch had a lovely view, there was no noticeable noise from the main A35 and the toilets were immaculately kept despite heavy rain over one night and another day. Overall I would recommend this site, perfect for kids and the seaside, with friendly helpful staff. I will book again next time we are headed to the area.

Very clean and well looked after site

We stayed at Wood Farm recently and found it to be very well run with helpful staff and exceptionally clean toilet blocks. Our pitch was down at the bottom end of the site so we heard little noise from the main road but we did miss out on the views from the upper pitches nearer the road had of the countryside. I can see why this site is so popular and would stay again if we are visiting the area again.

A well run, clean & tidy site.

We booked as an alternative to Bingham Grange (whilst they’re having their facilities refurbished). The check in & staff were very helpful. Our pitch was allocated on arrival & we were on the higher part of the terraced area of the site...the views across to the sea in the distance were fabulous. Our pitch had lovely sunshine for most of the day but we lost it behind the trees around 4:30pm The site has good toilets & showers, though the push operated timed off showers are always a minor frustration. The proximity to Charmouth is walkable & the hill back not too much trouble. This site is equidistant between West Bay/Bridport & Lyme Regis...all worth a visit. If I were to visit the area again I would happily book here, but be prepared for the hilly region which is Dorset & Jurassic Coast.

Beautiful Grounds, close to seaside

Stayed here in June for 4 nights on a premium serviced pitch. While a bit more expensive, this suited us as we could top up water halfway through our stay without having to move the motorhome. Pitch was allocated on arrival and we were guided to our pitch by one of the friendly and helpful members of staff, who also explained the facilities. The grounds are beautiful with a lovely walk down to the lake, with a secure enclosed dog walk area, with plenty of room to exercise the pooch. Charmouth beach is about 20 minutes walk, but a bit of a hill back to the site. Charmouth is pretty although not a huge amount there, a pub and a few shops. Helpful for stocking up the supplies. Lyme Regis is about 50 minutes walk, but 20 minutes on the bus, which has an hourly service and is a short walk from the site. Lyme Regis is definitely worth a visit for the beach and eating establishments. The site has regular visits from a takeaway fish & chip van and curry van. Very useful. My only criticism is the shower block. Each block has one toilet and 6 separate shower rooms which are a small bathroom with toilet, shower and basin. The problem is they tend to get used as a toilet, as only one separate toilet is available. They also get very steamed up because 1. The pre-set shower temperature is too hot and can’t be adjusted. 2. The ventilation is poor. They need better extractor fans. There is a window, but didn’t like to leave open while in the shower as people could see in. The shower is also on a spring load button, but only gives 12 seconds of flow before it needs pushing again (I timed it). That’s not enough time to even rinse your hair. By the time I’d dried my hair, I felt like I’d had a sauna, despite propping the door open. The site is close to the A35 so you do get traffic noise if you are close to the entrance, however that did not spoil our stay. Overall, we had a lovely stay and found the staff very friendly and helpful.
