Reviewer: Daisydoo 22 reviews from this member

We chose this site based on the reviews on here. On arrival we were quite shocked as we were expecting something quite special! (It just proves that you can't go entirely on reviews!)

We weren't very impressed with our pitch and felt it was a bit cramped. There was little room next to units to park cars so they were all parked alongside of road (which we also had to do), this wasn't necessarily a problem but when walking down the road or with our children on their bikes it made it very difficult to get out of the way of moving vehicles.

Also, the super pitches really didn't look that 'Super'.

The toilets and showers were always clean apart from there being cobwebs everywhere! I'm fairly tall and there were spiders above every shower in the main older block. This really wouldn't take long to rectify but would make a big difference to my holiday experience.

The Park was good with lots of space and equipment (Although the swing frame didn't seem that sturdy).

We had breakfast one morning in the 'Red Barn', we felt that the prices were reasonable and the food we received was nice but the service was very very slow even though it wasn't busy. With young children in tow this was a nightmare and totally put us off returning on an evening.

There was very little information about other places to eat as they obviously wanted you to only eat on site which really wasn't very helpful.

We ate at Marquis of Granby DT4 9TW which was fantastic with very quick and friendly service

Also, Alf's Fish & Chips, Weymouth DT4 0FA - lovely fish and chips and you get 10% off if you say you are on holiday!

Both of these places are on the B3157 between the site and Weymouth.

We have a very short list of sites we will return to and unfortunately this site will not be added to to that list

We will not be returning to this site. I booked a super pitch and in my opinion it wasn't very super! Yes it had water/waste and hook up (and even a socket for satellite TV.

The main issues included the lack of space! The pitch was tiny (the car had to be parked partly on the road) We were also on the 'main' road onto the site which was mainly used as a race course for children on scooters at 10pm! The owners need to ensure that their site rules are adhered too.

Didn't use the bar/grill - our neighbour told us that it was 4. 00 for a pint of Guiness and the food was over priced. The internet was rubbish! We had to return 5 times for a ticket (we were eventually told that it was a problem on the site and on our last time we went to complain the lad behind the counter looked at me like a piece of dirt. The staff were generally friendly and the shop was very good.

The toilet block was excellent

Liked the area, but will not return

Very good site in a picturesque area of the Jurassic Coast. Outstanding facilities for dog owners - very important if like me you have more than one dog in tow! Very reasonable rates for dogs too.

Huge field for dog walks, complete with free poop scoops and adequate bins for disposal.

The site was exceptionally well tended - toilets and showers were spotless, whatever time of day or night you visited them, and plants were regularly watered and looked after.

Well stocked shop and friendly staff. There is a beach nearby, which makes for a very pleasant walk to get to it, with lots of wildlife to see on the way.

I would definitely visit this site again.

We visited Bagwell farm on the first week of the school summer holidays to find it busy but not full, we had booked via the internet and after paying a deposit had our confirmation by return, we did have to pay for pup tents and even the dog but found the total price to be very reasonable.

The site is located at crickerell which is a little way out of weymouth but is not a problem and has lovely views of the top of fleet lagoon. On arrival we were booked in by friendly staff and given our pitch number, the pitch was large with plenty of room.

There are three toilet and shower blocks, one brand new and spotlessly clean, the other two older but again very clean, the on-site shop is small but is very well stocked with everything from tent pegs to bottles of wine, prices are a little more than supermarkets however we didn't feel that we were being ripped off.

There is a good dog walk around the field above the site as well as access to the coastal walk, which is great for an evening walk. The Red barn at bagwell is a bar and grill we didn't use it as the prices here were, we felt, very expensive but were told by others that the food was good, there are goats and chickens at the rear of the Red barn for the kids to look at.

Noise levels around the site were on most nights reasonable but was always quite after 11. 00pm, there is a car boot on the top field on Saturday and Sunday mornings but did not disturb us on site.

Weymouth is a great family holiday town with a very safe beach, there is a busy fishing harbour which is great for crabbing, for the adults the harbour side restaurants are good especially vaughans which serves high quality local food.

Overall a very good site with a mixture of units (tents, caravans, motorhomes)

all the pitches are well looked after with flower beds and pots around the toilet blocks.

This was our first visit to Bagwell Farm but will not be our last.

Just spent 7 wonderful days at this site. As ever, the facilities were very clean. The people are friendly. We had a lovely roast dinner in the pub just outside the camp. A foot path from the camp goes to this. We also had a circular walk which took in the pub about a mile away. We have the same pitches every year, we can see quite a distance from our tent. The sunsets are lovely. The pitches are really big, you don't have to try to squash in at all. Other campers are really friendly too, some have been going here for years. We cant wait to go back again.

The Ghost and Smugglers tours are a must in Weymouth if you are visiting here. I can also recommend the KINGS ARMS in Weymouth for a meal.

Reviewer: Splumpf 2 reviews from this member

I stayed here with my partner and two friends in July. Pitches are pre-allocated which meant that we were very close to our neighbours. We had to pay extra to have two cars which I thought was a bit excessive given that they both fit easily within our pitch boundary.

Toilet and shower blocks were clean and warm. There was one hairdrier in the ladies which was free to use but not very powerful.

The on-site pub and restaurant was very nice, reasonably priced too. There are animals on site in pens (goats, donkeys) which are probably good for entertaining children but apart from that there didn't seem to be anything else for little ones on site.

The on-site shop is a good size and stocked a good range of food, camping supplies and souvenirs.

The locations is ok but you would need a car if you wanted to go visit any of the main attractions. We went to Weymouth and Durdle Door, both of which weren't too far by car.

The site is adjacent to the Nature Reserve behind Chesil Beach which made for a lovely trek. We ended up at a lovely country pub called the Elm Tree Inn.

I would recommend this site and probably would visit again.
