Good for families

First stay at Wood Farm

We spent five nights at Wood Farm as part of a longer stay in Devon and Dorset. We received a warm welcome at reception. We were given an information pack and someone showed us to our allocated fully serviced pitch. We were a bit disappointed at first as it was right opposite the toilet block but it was fine as we were pitched so that that our door opened on the other side and the block was not busy. The site is tiered so there is some uphill walking to do and it is just off the main dual carriageway so there is some road noise, particularly if you are at the top of the site. We found that the site is not as well maintained as the CAMC sites we have visited and the atmosphere was not as good. The facilities are in separate cubicles with toilet, sink and shower all in one which was fine as there was lots of space but they did need updating. There was a brush to sweep the floor after your shower but you had to sweep the water out of the door onto the path outside which I found a bit strange. We did not use any of the but theamenities but they are good for families as there is a swimming pool (using a booking system), tennis court and playground. The location was good for us as motorhomers as you could walk into Charmouth and also there is a bus stop a few minutes walk from the site. We used the bus service (the Jurassic Coaster) to visit Lyme Regis, Seaton and Bridport. We also did a couple of walks: Seaton to Beer (a lovely place) along the coast path and Bridport to West Bay and Burton Bradstock using public footpaths. We also had an excellent meal at the Millside restaurant in Lyme Regis. Great seafood but you will need to book as they are very busy.

Hi, We spent 7 days at Wood Farm from 17th May. We did not write a review, never have, and so interested in your thoughts.

On arrival we were left queuing in the access road because, as you say, all outfits are escorted to their pitch.

This seemed unnecessary, but as there are no indications of pitch numbers maybe that's why.

On arrival only the 'bathrooms were open for showers but the next day the main block opened with little restrictions and I used that.

During our stay there seemed to be an awful lot of grass cutting and strimming and I had to ask that they do this away from my van not towards it as several stones flew up.

We were on the very top level and it was a steep, and quite long trek to the facilities and, at night there was very little lighting.

We had spoken to the new owners Parkdean before booking as our friends MH is 8m and the pitch allocated was a tight squeeze with his bike rack in the hedge and he overhung the road by a  couple of feet

The weather was not great and we were puzzled why some pitches accessed over grass were in use and others, of a larger size than ours, appeared to be empty the whole week.

The pitches opposite the bathrooms were particularly bad and very cut up access route.

We used the pool once, noticed no real difference in atmosphere from most sites and spent a lot of time off site exploring, eating & drinking, and all indoors, which as the weather was so bad was just as well.
