Spacious, Peaceful, & Woodland walks from site

Very large field, as per the pictures, with caravans well spaced apart, alongside a hedgerow, water and good electric to each outfit. Plenty of space. Access to Norton Woods direct from the site, through another large field – plenty of local walks. Nice to be able to connect up to one’s own tap for permanent water supply. Nice to have a HUGE field the children can wander around freely without bothering others. They busied themselves for hours feeding grass to the horse, and watching the sheep, and playing roly poly down the sloping part of the field (NB pitches all perfectly level along the hedgerow). Well drained and very dry. No road noise at all, as site is far enough from the road, accessed through the farmyard and along a track. One drawback is the internet – important to us. I’ve never been defeated yet (and spend 120 days a year touring in my caravan) so I was not going to be defeated here. We are on Three / EE, so other networks may fare better. Signal fine on road approaching site but disappears on site. This is due to site being low down in a valley. We identified the pitch nearest the bins had a slightly better signal, but not enough to make everything work. So I stuck our iphone on top of two spare awning poles strapped together, up a tree. The height gave us adequate internet and WIFI. So though we had no terrestrial/ Sky tv, the iphone 15 feet up on a long pole gave us full internet on all our devices and our NOW TV box worked streamed TV fine. Full Internet here would be a simple fix, all it needs is a receiver/ WIFI booster up a pole – until then, bring your own pole. We visited Sherborne, Cerne Abbas, Pamphill, Shaftesbury, Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy, Jurassic coast etc, so plenty to do in the area. Also a useful farm shop with good value meat. Above all nice to have so much space all around you so no one disturbs each other.
