Happy Campers ツ

What can you say about this site that hasn’t already been said. We had a hard standing, fully serviced pitch complete with picnic bench and lighting. really good sized pitches, lovely staff, spotless toilet and shower blocks. The grounds and pitches are maintained to the highest standard, the dog walks are excellent. Everyone we met was friendly, we had a 2 week stay and wish it could have been longer. A lovely peaceful place to stay will definitely return in the future.

Friendly and welcoming staff. My husband and I needed ” rest & relaxation” and that’s exactly what we got 🙂 During our week we visited many places, Swanage, Sandbanks, Lulworth Cove to name a few. Lovely quiet hard standing pitch with water, drainage,electric and a picnic table, fantastic.

Many thanks for the ” chives” from the accessible herb gardens.

We will definitely be coming back.
