First time at this site and what a lovely stay, we originally booked for 2 nights and decided to extend our stay for a further 2 days because we liked it so much. The deer were a novelty, much tamer than the ones in the New Forest. My dog was eyeing up the venison!! The facilities were spotless, showers were hot and welcoming, and I was so delighted to see that the site had installed compost loos, just be sure you don't have your mobile in your back pocket when you sit down on the toilet!!!! There is easy access to public transport - bus and train. My only quibble, which has nothing to do with the campsite itself is the main road. There is a co-op about 10 minutes from the site but the paths are fairly narrow and the traffic hares down the road at great speed. Big thanks to the staff for making us so welcome, we will certainly be back again in the future.
First stay at this site and will definitely return. All staff were really polite and so helpful. The deer wandering through the site are a real treat to see. Facilities were all clean and well maintained although perhaps a bit dated The Frampton Arms which can be accessed via a gate on site is well worth a visit. Sunday roast was immense and really tasty and local ale at £2.50 a pint!!
Super welcoming site with nearby pub, dog friendly, train station and handily placed for Bournemouth/Swanage/Weymouth. Deer roaming freely throughout the site good size pitches and spotlessly clean. Recommended
Been to this site a number of times and have been on a different pitch each time, every one of them have been excellent, the deers visited us where ever we set up. The facilities are clean (showers and toilets) staff are so helpful and friendly. We had EHU on a grass pitch every time which have been flat, just remember to twist your plug when you connect up. :-) The train line is close and convenient to travel to either Weymouth,Poole or Bournemouth. Also the pub next to the station (approx 400 m away) The Frampton Arms do great meals and a great pint. Overall a perfect place.
We stayed here a week ago and it must rate amongst the very best caravan site we have stayed at. The site is exquisitely positioned in woodland with a lot of small enclaves to pitch on providing a good deal of privacy. The facilities were spotless, the only issue being that due to the laudable recycling methodology the showers and toilets are in different blocks. This didn’t bother us as we use the caravan facilities but may be an inconvenience to some. There are also deer who inhabit the site and roam around which is really nice. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a cabin near the entrance containing a lot of helpful information and a book change facility. Location is excellent with easy access to Dorchester and the coastal resorts of Bournemouth, Weymouth and Lyme Regis, all within easy reach. There is a pub just outside the entrance which is open all day and serves good quality and value food as well as a local draft beer for £2.50. There is also a Co Op convenience store a few minutes walk away, what’s not to like? The only thing that would stop us returning very soon is the patchy wi-fi which is only available near the reception, although there is a programme in place to role it out across the whole site. As soon as it is we will be back for a longer stay. Truly superb
A lovely little site well placed for catching the train to Weymouth, Wool (for buses) and beyond. Within a few minutes walking distance to the Frampton Arms for food and drink. The facilities are clean albeit a little dated. Some road noise can be heard along with trains every hour but not really intrusive. No gripes at all apart from the rather extortionate price of each night (£37) for no WiFi, separate toilets and showers and very dated overall facilities.
This was our second visit and will book again. Our granddaughter loved the fact the deer were roaming though the site. The site and facilities were clean and tidy. Easy access to the train station where you can catch a train to Weymouth in one direction and Poole in the other. Will be booking again soon.
Been coming here since daughter now 15 was eight. It's a great site. Staff are friendly and very helpful and keep the site and facilities in top condition. Regarding noise there are trains and the quarry operating but any noise is momentary and it soon becomes tranquil again. I've never had any issue with smells from the composting toilets, more likely the chemical toilet tanks!
Lovely site, friendly and helpful staff. My husband had an interview while we were on holiday and they helped a lot. Deer within close proximity of the site which are lovely to see. One reviewer mentioned the train noise was incessant. However we didn't find that a problem the trains run every half an hour stopping at Moreton every hour, the only thing we can think is that they must have been near to the gate which leads out onto the road to the station and The Frampton Arms and the crossing going up and down does make quite a noise. Trains from Moreton Station (within 5-6 min walk from the site) to Bournemouth, Wareham, Dorchester and Weymouth, other stations in between. We visited the Black Dog in Broadmayne, not an easy walk from the site because we couldn't find a path off the road that went all the way to the pub and the road was very busy. All that said it was worth the walk as the pub and staff were amazing. We had meals in The Frampton Arms (within walking distance from the site) which was nice and easy to get to and back, they also do breakfasts but we didn't get chance to try it, they don't have a specific vegan menu but can sort you out with something. The Thimble in Piddlehinton was quite formal but they had a vegan menu so there was more choice for me, personally better to order 2 starters (one for a starter and one starter for a main rather than having a main course) so that you have room for a pudding. You can stay in the carpark overnight at The Thimble for a fee if you want however we didn't do this so not sure how it works. We walked to The Walled Garden from the site which has a Send Cafe which was very nice too, they ask for a donation which you can either put cash in the box or pay by card at the Cafe. Tank museum at Bovington is well worth a visit, we did it 13 years ago before our daughter and they have added more things to do in that time so well worth a visit. If we get the chance to return to the site we would definitely go to Monkey World and The Cider Museum as we didn't get chance to do these. The cider museum is within walking distance from the site and go back to Dorchester and Wareham and Weymouth and Swanage, There is a steam train at Swanage but not all of them are steam we ended up with a diesel so if you're desperate for a bit of steam you need to plan your visit. At Swanage there is also a park where there are 3 dedicated motorhome parking spaces but we decided to use the train instead. Also we would go to Poole as we never managed to do that either as there is so much to do.
We stayed 3 nights on this site and found it a good base for exploring Poole, Studland and Weymouth. We had originally booked a hardstanding pitch which resembled a car park near the entrance but the warden recommended we look for a grass pitch which we did and ended up with a lovely spacious pitch. There was a lot of choice depending on your preference for being near others or further apart and how close you want to be to the railway line. It was disappointing not to be able to use our charcoal bbq which I think should have been mentioned on the booking confirmation as we booked a long time in advance and did not realise that only gas and electric bbqs could be used. The toilets and showers are in separate blocks which is mildly inconvenient if you aren't used to it but both are clean and functional. There were lots of deer about which was lovely to see but also to note lots of burdock on the edges of the grass which was difficult to remove from our dog's coat. We were lucky with the weather and would stay here again in the future.
