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.

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.

Well after reading the reviews I was looking forward to staying at this site. However I must admit that I felt a little let down. The shop was very good as stated in other reviews. It is open most of the day and was well stocked, the staff seemed friendly until you had a prob.

The shower block was cleaned every morning but even thou a mop and bucket are left for you to clean up after yourself it was very often not used ( I know that its the campers not sites fault ).

The site is on a slope and can be a little too steep if you are in a tent. There is a bar that does food on site, we never used it as was too pricey ( baked potato cheese and colesaw 7. 20 yes 7. 20 ).

You could have a bath which cost 1 for 15mins of hot water but was cut down to 10 mins for 1 second week in.

While we had a good time we would not go back to this site it just did not feel as you were getting value for money and was over priced for what you got.

This was our third trip to Bagwell and as usual the site was busy but clean and well laid out.

We were pitched close to the playground which was fantastic for us as our 5 year old could run free as we pitched the tent and relaxed! However if you don't have kids I wouldn't recommend being that close as it can be very noisy.

The newer toilets do get busy early on and these are starting to need some attention now as inevitable wear and tear take place. For example a seat in the mens has been ripped off the wall and the baby changing table in one of the bathrooms sags so I wasn't happy changing my youngest on it. That being said the baths are still worth their weight in gold when trying to clean the beach off two youngsters!
