All the comments are very honest and accurate. Enjoyed our stay here very much, plenty of dog walks and Weymouth delightful to visit with easy parking in the swannery car park as you enter town £6.30/day. Site fee's are reasonable at £15 without EHU and £18 with. Have a short drive around the coast to explore Osmington Mills where you will find a smugglers inn. Park free and walk the coastal path then have a fine meal in the pub.

We chose this site from the 'open all year tab' on UKCS after the opportunity arose for a late season week away. The site is large though not overpoweringly so and offers pitches from basic grass through to huge hardstandings, Dorset is one of our favourite haunts and this site is a very good location for exploring, Weymouth is close by and does have some access issues peak season (a huge new relief road is currently under construction)but attractions for all weathers are a particularly splendid feature of dear old Dorset.

The site is quite easy to find with painless access from a main road and facilities are among the best we have seen obviously the site was relatively quiet in October (although got surprisingly busy at the weekend due to an event in Weymouth)the on-site shop is well stocked,staff were friendly we did not visit the red barn on this occasion but will do when we return as we most certainly will.

Our pitch easily swallowed our Norfolk lake and the slight slope did not inconvenience. There is a very new block on site housing showers/sinks and OH BLISS! a lovely,spacious BATHROOM! coin operated it gave loads of hot water more than enough to top the tub and in colder weather was heavenly,further down the site there are large,older facilities blocks that were still immaculate on our visit (well off-peak obviously but overall I think they should cope well with busy periods)

Can wholeheartedly recommend this site and we will certainly return.

We stayed at this campsite as family were staying near by. The facilities were excellent and the kids liked the animals and the play area.

Dog walking nearby was great down to the lagoon and the designated field was easy to get to in the dark with dogs.

The car boot sale was huge. Our only issue was the size of pitch and the closeness of other campers. It was all marked out in uniform rows to maximise space which made you feel hemmed in.

Good facilities but we wouldn't go again as we prefer small campsites.

The site was easy to find and access and is in a great location for access to Weymouth. It was well looked after and clean with excellent facilities. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and I would certainly recommend this site for anyone travelling in the Weymouth area.

Just returned from a week at Bagwell Farm. Facilities on site very good. Shop open long hours and stocked anything you may want from food/milk to camping basics.

Toilet blocks very clean - seemed to be cleaned 2 or 3 times a day. Queues for showers in morning,but could be avoided by showering middle of the day. Also I think the older facilities block might have been less busy with more showers (but further to walk from our pitch)

It is August so the site was busy and there was a bit of noise from fellow campers. We were very near The Red Barn but there was no noise from there. The takeway fish and chips was very nice, and welcome on our first night!

Our 8 year old and 5 year old liked the animals (goats, geese and donkeys). Playground was large but tended to be dominated by the older kids.

Weymouth beach very clean. Also visited Studland Bay beach (National Trust carpark £8 for day or free for members). The Blue Pool - tranquil woodland with some playground facilities. Dorchester dinosaur museum was expensive and very crowded on wet day. Cinema in Dorchester good value at £2.50 per seat during week - also good for wet weather!

Would return to the site - but it was a long drive from Suffolk and the roads around Dorchester /Weymouth were really busy.

Just off the B3157 between Langton Herring & Chickerell and next to the Historical Smugglers place Moonfleet lies this beautiful campsite that has standings for tents, caravans & touring RVís. On arrival of the site it is clean, grass short & green and a childrenís play area that is safe big enough for a few class rooms of children to play. Small but well equipped shop has nice welcoming staff & has recommendations & helpful advice of the surrounding areas for you to explore. The grounds house Caravans/RVís on the upper level & Tents, Tourers & Caravans on the lower with loads of pitching space for tents that could take a 10 man tent with ease. The pitches are clearly marked & also with a site map its fool proof. Plenty of water taps around the site & with waste areas all over the place there was zero rubbish around on the floor. A total of 3 toilet/shower blocks including a newly built one near the shop area were all clean & always clean even in the busy hours as staff were on site making sure they were well equipped (toilet roll was actually nice to use!). Showers were supplied with hot water all the time in all the blocks and the new block even had baths (which didnít use as showers were spot on). At times you did see staff going around with waste bags pick up any rubbish. Washing up areas were also plenty so no queuing and the middle blocks had a washing area for clothes, washing machines & dryers just in case you got caught in the wet. Chemical disposal point was in the middle of the block & you didnít even notice it as it was always clean. With the weather being hit and miss over our stay the site was never bogged down, muddy or pooled up and dried up fast if surface water was showing. Electric hook-ups around areas of the site & a small BBQ area next to a Campers Shelter which can house up to 25-30 people if the weather got really bad, plus it was a place for children to play & eat in as there were tables & a wash area inside.

The site allowed to have dogs on as long they were on a short leash at all times, did notice a few not leashed but were well behaved & stayed with there owners.

The site restaurant/bar had a limited food line, a touch pricey but the food was really good & the steaks came from their own farm and tasted marvellous. Nice selection of drinks & a good local brewed ale called Piddle Ė good & tasty. Breakfast was good for the £3.50 price & included a big mug of tea, good way to start the day if you canít be bothered to cook in the morning. Next to the pub was an area for donkeys, goats, geese etc and liked to come down to the fence for the children.

On Saturday and Sunday there is a car boot sale in the top field that was quiet busy.

Access to Moonfleet is on foot & about 1 Ĺ walk or a 2 mile drive.

Chesil Beach is a 10 minute drive up the road with a magnificent pebble ride beach that goes down to Portland. There are tons of walking routes that are accessed from either top or bottom of the site and then you realise how big the site is when you do a short walk.

Weymouth town is a 12-15 minute drive & can be a pain to get to the sea front or quayside at certain times (which later found some quicker back routes thanks to one of the staff)

In the past when Iíve been to camping sites Iíve never really slept right. Bagwell Farm was that friendly the site become quiet around 10pm & silent at 11pm and I had the best weeks sleep in a long time.

We booked this site due to a recon of the 2012 Olympics for Sailing & Windsurfing site in Weymouth/Portland and are glad that this site is our #1 choice for that (we are pre-booked for that now). I do highly recommend this place for a stay in Dorset and will be returning again soon.
