Have just returned from a 11 night stay at Bagwell Farm, We had not used this site before so was not sure what to expect. We were pitched in the Herbury tent field and the pitch sizes I have to say were really quite large although ours was on a bit of a slope on the top edge of the field but we could get around this quite easily.

The site has 3 toilet shower blocks that have an adequate amount of toilets and showers and also 2 of the blocks have private bathrooms, one of these blocks was quite new to the site.

On site there was a well stocked shop and also a bar and grill building that was quite nice too.

The town of Weymouth was just a short car ride away but those wanting to leave the car could catch the X53 bus which stopped just down the road from the site.

Those wishing to go from site for a drink and a meal there is a nice walk (1 mile approx) along the footpath from the site to the village of Langton Herring where the Elm Tree pub does nice meals and drinks.

Overall our stay was good and we would return to this site again but I would prefer a time out of the school holidays for our next visit.

Just returned from a very enjoyable 2 weeks here.

Staff were very friendly upon arrival and handed out a site brochure and clear directions to our pitch. We booked at the last minute and this was the third choice site - the others being booked. We are so grateful the others were full! Of course we had a sneaky peak at the others but this site looked far more suitable for our needs.

Our pitch was everything we would like, a decent size, lovely view of Chesil Beach and the Fleet, most of our neighbours seemed to be seasonal though.

Toilet and Shower facilities were clean, well looked after and never too busy despite the site looking fairly full.

There is a car boot sale Sat and Sun morning at the site entrance, some bargains to be had here.

Site Shop at first seems rather small but you wont believe how much can be crammed into such a small space! Used daily for basics and newspapers, again the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.

Breakfast can be taken at the Red Barn and if the weather is ok can be eaten outside. The menu here is basic but the food is good and the steaks are well worth trying although a little on the pricey side. The Victoria Inn ( a short walk across the field) also serves a good steak. There is also another pub serving food within walking distance but beware it is uphill and hard going for the unfit!

All in all - this site ticked all of our boxes and we will definitely return for a further 2 weeks next year.

Fantastic site, friendly staff. We had a wonderful holiday.

Facilities were spotless in both blocks. The newer block was luxurious!

The pitches were well marked out with enough space on for a largish tent and the car.

Nice setting and there was a car boot sale taking place in adjacent field on a Sunday.

It was busy, but it was the middle of August, and even so, we never had a problem with noise.

Having read many positive reviews regarding this site we were lucky to get a place over a weekend at very short notice. Despite the scarcity of places the staff were very accommodating when we requested a quiet plot as we have a two year old who is in bed relatively early. The site is beautifully located in a dip off a minor road just north of Weymouth (3-4 miles) on the coast and many pitches have magnificent views of the unusual geological feature of Fleet Lagoon and Chesil Beach -which are within walking distance via a footpath through fields.

The site has a brilliant shop which sells just about anything you could ever need and the facilities (especially the new block) are exceptional with copious hot water, immaculately clean toilets and the added bonus of private bath rooms, incluing baths (although there is a nominal charge of a pound to use these). The 'Red Barn' (Bar and Grill) is well situated away from most pitches and does not intrude with noise.

The site is tiered in the main paddock with the top tier providing the best views:the other fields are used predominantly for tents although there are caravan pitches scattered around them. The only criticism read among other reviews was that the pitches were rather small and that there was a feeling of being on top of one another - whilst this was slightly exaggerated by some I would agree that the proximity of the neighbours was slightly too close for comfort. Nonetheless, this is an excellent site and our two year old loved the play area (swings, slides, a sand-pit) and especially enjoyed the 'pets area' with goats and donkeys. A very well managed, beautifully located site that we will probably be returning to.

Reception staff friendly and helpful. Showers in the old block although clean were very poor quality, more of a trickle than a shower. Tried the new block which was much better but only had 4 showers so the queues were always long.

Pitch was spacious as they ask when booking the size of your tent.

Main critism was the Red Barn. The evening we arrived by the time we'd pitched up and had tea, then attempted to shower it was after 9. 30pm. When we got to the barn the barman called last orders and you couldn't get a drink after ten.

The reason he gave for this was by the time he'd got everyone out it wasn't too late for people to get back to their pitches quietly, but they don't do anything about some campers talking loudly well after midnight so I didn't see what his problem was. So if you want to go somewhere you can have a relaxing drink of an evening Bagwell Farm is not the place to go.

This was our 3rd visit to Bagwell farm and it will not be our last, friendly staff, clean and up to date facilities, showers could do with running for a bit longer at mo they turn off every 20 seconds, nice size pitches, nice walks, very good site if you take a dog as we do. It would be nice if the bus that goes too and from Weymouth stopped at the site all year round. Will be back soon!
