Happy Campers ツ

We stayed at this site for Christmas and New Year, how lucky we were to find it. The site is immaculate the toilets and showers never looked like they had been used and so lovely and warm. The free WiFi was a massive bonus especially over this period it meant we could easily keep in touch with family and friends. The people who work on site are fantastic nothing was too much trouble and there was always someone around to help if you needed it. The site has a great shop on site that is well stocked.

It is perfect for a central point for seeing Dorset, it’s nicely tucked away not to be in the main drag but close enough to get to major shopping in 15 minuets. The guys that run the site put on two events whilst we were there to celebrate Christmas and New Year this was great it meant you got to meet them on a one to one basis and other campers. There’s a small cafe on site and a fantastic pub within walking distance. A playground for children and a book swap. The site has hens so fresh eggs daily there is also a nature information centre as well. All in all one of the best sites we have ever visited. We hope to return soon.

Since last summer the kids park has been completely replaced and expanded to such a high quality (council take note please…) and there is equipment suitable for a wide range of ages/abilities. Being the first time we’ve stayed with our 5year old this was a massive win for us and she LOVED it. Between borrowing books from the phone box library, playing in the games room & park, feeding the chickens and watching the ducks she was never bored. Family bathroom was a great bonus & even good for those with babies.

We’ve stayed twice previously (sans child) and have always been made to feel genuinely welcome. You can tell the staff all enjoy working there. Can also highly recommend local pub (st.peters finger) and Dylan’s cafe especially for breakfast, both of which are within short walking distance. Only complaint is I now have a terribly disappointed daughter as we can’t stay over Halloween to get a free site grown pumpkin to carve!
