Happy Campers ツ

My husband and I opted for a Romany Caravan as our accommodation during a recent short visit to Dorset. The Caravan and camping site is large and very well kept. There are 4 Romany caravans on-site right across from the ablution block. The Romany Caravan is a bit longer than the traditional Romany Caravan as it has a small “kitchenette” in the front. Inside there is a very comfortable double bed, 2 single beds, which can be used as seating, a small flatscreen tv, electric “log” burner and tasteful decorations. We received a tin of Dorset teabags as a welcome gift. In the “kitchenette”, there is an electric coffeemaker, small under counter fridge, toaster, kettle and a twin hot plate. All facilities were very clean and the on-site shop is well stocked. The staff and the guests were all very friendly.

Almie, September 2017

This was our first visit to the park and we had a great time! All the staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We stayed in one of the romany caravans and loved it – we didn’t want to leave! There was a comfy double bed, a small kitchen area with a hob and kettle, plus a coffee machine and toaster, so we had everything we needed. The romany caravans are conveniently located opposite the shower and toilet block, and the shop on site is well stocked and reasonably priced.
