We open our farm for tent camping for 4 weeks, starting in mid July. Located in an area known locally as 'Paradise Valley' the site covers several hedged fields in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Accessed by a track from the main road the campsite is quiet, secluded and safe for children. The farm runs up to East Hill (the North Down), from where there are amazing views over Dorset.
The site is run along very similar lines to its sister site, Eweleaze Farm. Guests are able to choose their own pitch, so friends and families can camp in groups as they please and parking by your tent is allowed on most of the fields. There is loads of room for kids to run around, fly kites, play ball games and the like.
Campfires are allowed and firewood is available from the farm shop.
Toilets - every field has toilets available
Showers - there are free hot showers at several locations around the site
Washing up - washing up sinks are available around the site
Recycling facilities - these are available around the site - as an 'eco' site we try hard to recycle
Pets - pets are welcome
Animals - we have tame goats, sheep, dogs etc for the children to see and touch
Courtesy bus - this runs every day to the beach.
Northdown Down's shop sells almost entirely organic produce including beef and lamb from the farm, pork, eggs, milk, cheese, bread, vegetables, beers, ciders and wines, as well as firewood, gas, bbqs, charcoal and other essentials.
There are a number of good beaches in the area.
Eweleaze Farm is 2.5km from the site. Note there is no parking available at Eweleaze. The beach is a quiet, shingly cove running out to a rocky headland.
Ringstead Bay - this bay is 6km from Northdown, along a toll road, £5 including parking for the day.
Bowleaze Cove - popular with windsurfers, this beach is 3.5km from the site. Free on-road parking.
Weymouth - this is a long sandy beach with a typical English seaside theme. It does get busy in season.
The South West Coast path runs approx 2km to the south of the site, with walks to Osmington Mills, Ringstead, Durdle Door and Lulworth to the east and Weymouth to the west. Beyond Weymouth, across the bay, is the Isle of Portland, the venue for the 2012 sailing Olympics.
From the West (Weymouth)
proceed through Preston and up the hill.
Soon after the sign the entrance to Northdown Farm will be seen on the left hand side.
From the East (A35) take the B3390 and A353 to Osmington. Drive through the village and out the other side past the sign.
Go down the hill for 800m, and the entrance to Northdown Farm will be seen on the right hand side.
