Wow! The best CL we've ever stayed at.

There are both hard standing and grass pitches. Most are full service with electric, water, grey waste and a communal TV aerial socket (really no need for that as our caravan aerial did the job just fine). And to cap it all decent WiFi throughout the site at no extra charge! Great pride is taken in the site with well cut and cared for grass areas. Excellent hard surfaces and everything is very neat and tidy. The site is 100s of yards away from the road so very quiet. As others have commented there is a train line a little way away but it really does not disturb. The train is only 3 carriages long so is gone in a flash. No light pollution so the night sky is very clear. Well thought out and implemented Covid-19 procedures for toilet and shower access which are immaculately clean. However, there is a downside for us - the site is adults only. Often we take our 5 year old grandson away with us and would love to come back here with him. This will limit how often we can have a long weekend at this newly discovered fabulous site.

Very Good Little Site

This is a very well set up and cared for site. Although it didn't bother us at, all you really need to think of it as a small camp site. There are 5 pitches a little separate from around 8 or 9 other pitches but the showers and toilet waste facilities are used by all pitches. Most pitches appear to be serviced so there is no problem with water. As other people have said, we were a little worried about the trains but they were not a problem. The walk to Shaftesbury is largely a nice 3 mile (according to the OS Maps app) route with some difficulties at the moment due to a new housing estate being built on part of the path. Overall a nice site.

Third Visit Even Better

On our third visit we thought we would know exactly what we would be getting. There are great views, and pitches and Graham sets out to make your stay the best it can. However, he has improved the service points to make the toilet facility safe from the Coronavirus, and made further improvements to the washing machine, and grey waste areas. Once again I recommend this site unreservedly.

Welcome Stay

We stayed in September and loved the setting, the owner was friendly and helpful, not a complaint but the ladies shower had a mind of its own when someone used the water in the Gents, it turned cold, but being an all service pitch we could use our van. There was something about the location we extended our stay for another 4 days. Yes a train does go by all of 2 seconds, and you dont hear it after a day or so. A very useful stopping point and relaxing stay over, we were happy to be with like minded caravaners and would definately go back. Andy Lynn Tofte (Rye the dog) who really loved the walks from the van

One night on way to Cornwall

I booked for one night stop over on my way to Cornwall - I had a van with my motorbike in the back and my caravan - needed an early start. Graham was very very helpful - placed me in yard so I didnt have to unhook may unit and plugged me in to electric in his shed. Walked round the Cl site very pretty and clean. Cycled in to Shaftesbury in the evening - and up Gold Hill - lovely little fish and chip shop there. Will definitely stay again - longer next time.

Lovely site

What a fantastic little site, arrived thursday 22nd august for 9 nights and was not disappointed, shower block lovely and clean separate showers for men and women. As for our 2 dogs they had an absolute ball, loads of fields to walk around safely. Graham and Andrea were both lovely, accommodating and friendly. Looking to book again for next year an absolute gem of a site. A big thank you to you both.

Sarcasm

Unfortunately we needed to cancel our booking and got no reply from our email and subsequent two calls leaving a message - all of which were only made to ensure we did not let the site down - we were a little surprised on the sarcastic response when all we wanted to do was make sure that our cancellation was not missed What do you think? “I can confirm that your reservation has been cancelled. If you would like to confirm you have received this email for the cancellation, then I will confirm that I received your email confirming you received my email. Many Thanks Graham”

Fabulous site

This is a fabulously well maintained and secure site. The owners have thought of everything and all facilities and serviced pitches are exceptionally well kept. Don't be put off by the site's proximity to the railway line or the A350 - the site is peaceful. Thank you for a great stay.

Fantastic site.

We have just returned after 10 perfect days at Lower Liston. It is our 4th year running and we have booked again for next year. We can’t fault the site. Graham and Andrea are perfect hosts and the facilities are immaculate.

Nice site, but too many units

This is a great site, but spoilt during our stay by there being too many caravan units in what is a fairly small space. On arrival there were five occupied spaces, and one empty van. The next day a sixth arrived, and the empty unit was filled, making a total of seven units. Today it dropped to six, but two more vans have parked up just outside the entrance to this field, so we have eight units. We choose cl's because we like an uncrowded, laid back site. So, the rules are being broken, but we are also not allowed to put a windbreak up!
