Good, but... BE AWARE - FERRY TO BOURNEMOUTH CLOSED UNTIL OCTOBER.

Please be aware that the ferry to Bournemouth is out of action until October (and has been since July). We had wanted to use the ferry for daily access to the air show, and it was almost a 2 hour return trip to drive around instead. You can get a train from Wareham to Bournemouth, but unfortunately it's not possible to get the steam train to Wareham (yet), so you need to drive. Supermarkets are miles away and we found it difficult to park there. This does make the site feel a bit remote. The local roads were extremely busy during the main part of the day, so we tried to limit our travel to mornings and evenings. The steam railway is a great way to explore some of the local area with the kids. We used it to access Swanage and the beach. Whilst we were there, we tried to bring back as many supermarket provisions as we could (the station is quite a short walk from the site). We found the site peaceful at night, but can be noisy in the day with multiple types of maintenance machinery on the go - way more than any other site we've been to. In fairness, the site is one of the most clean and tidy though. There are decent showers and washing facilities, with plenty of hot water. There's not much for the kids to do on site other than a large field, but we liked the nature / wildlife areas, which were well stocked with food for the birds. Overall, we would recommend for a short stay.
