We had a wonderful 4 nights at this site. Friendly and helpful staff, no complaints by us about the facilities. We think this is a great site and have already recommended it to friends and family.

When walking on the footpaths by the site we found plenty of cowpats and sheep droppings to avoid but can't remember being troubled by dog-poo, so no bad experiences on that count unlike an earlier reviewer.

As well as the hourly bus service through the village we used the at least hourly Swanage to Bournemouth service via Studland and the Poole Harbour ferry. Stops allow walkers to alight for walking the chalk downs either to Corfe or on Ballard Down to Old Harry Rocks, and we did the latter with fabulous views over both Swanage or Poole Harbour. In high season there is also a bus from Swanage to Lulworth Cove.

RSPB have a large reserve area with facilities at Arne, a wonderful place to visit with extensive car parking at 5/day. Follow different routes to walk over heathland and in woods, and maybe picnic on a beach - an ideal adventure for nature-loving families.

We found the Langton Parish church open on Thursday mornings for coffee & cake, and the small museum revealing both the history of Purbeck stone quarrying and of the development of small aircraft-carried radar during WW2 which enabled submarines to be successfully located. We also enjoyed visiting one or two 'PAW' (= Purbeck Arts Weeks) venues to see the work of craftspeople and artists.

One of our most enjoyable camping breaks! Much to explore, very good walking, fine beaches - all in the glorious setting of the Purbecks.

We are in our mid 60's & have been to this site a couple of times now and really like the laid back atmosphere. Buses stop just outside the site (going to Poole, Wareham & Swanage) and there are some wonderful walks. It's an easy walk along the Pilgrims way to Swanage and a simple, quick bus ride back means no need to drive, so you can have a few beers - Brill!

There is a Pub a comfortable walk away in the village which sells food (we never tried the food), as well as real Ale & Cider. Loads of people on the site had their dogs with them and the only negative was that walking in the fields around the site (not on the site itself), meant having to dodge the doo-doo thoughtlessly left in the middle of the pathways - dog owners please understand that it is extremely thoughtless & unpleasant to allow your dog to foul on a well trodden footpath. Please be courteous and move it off the footpath.

The ablution facilities are clean, perfectly adequate and what one expects on a normal campsite - not modern or luxurious. The pitch hire charge is most reasonable in our opinion given the excellent location. You can buy basics & hire a small BBQ (only off-the ground BBQ's allowed), from the reception/shop which is also where you buy tokens for the showers from. The shop didn't seem to open for many hours so I'd advise buying what you need when you see it open.

You don't need to book in advance except possibly the absolute peak season as this is a big site and there is another just down the road, so it's extremely unlikely that one or the other will fail to put you up. Each time we have been it has been busy but there has still been plenty of space and the pitches are generous. The last time we went we were offered a choice of pitches with or without hookup and chose a lovely secluded one - wonderful.

If you want one of those five star, highly regimented, spotless, manicured club sites with concrete everywhere don't go to Tom's Field, but if you want a basic, no frills, laid back site this is perfect. We'll be going back many times as we absolutely love the area.

No marks for child friendliness as we don't have any and we were there during term time, however, there were a number of well behaved under school age tots on the site that seemed to be having a wonderful time.

Just come back from a 4 night stay at Tom's Field. 18 per night for a family of 4 in a medium sized tent.

This campsite suited us down to the ground. No frills but a lovely site divided up into areas with bushes, trees and rabbit warrens. It was full half the time we were there but never felt overcrowded.

Our 2 boys played games with other children on the site for hours. Apparently it's a great place for hide and seek.

The facilities are basic but plentiful and clean. 25p for a 3 minute shower and lots of hand basins and toilets in the ladies though I can't speak for the men's. There was even soap!

The owners were perfectly pleasant and very helpful. The shop sold enough to keep you going including fresh rolls and croissants in the morning. Outside the shop is a fairly extensive herb garden for campers which we thought was a lovely touch and made very good use of.

A great site for families in a beautiful location just 20 minutes walk from the South West Coast Path and 3 miles drive from Swanage. You also need to visit the Square and Compass in Worth Matravers, 5 minutes drive away. What a pub!

Great little site, very popular with VW vans, a few electric pitches. 3 small fields, couple of other small areas frequently use by DoE or schools. Showers and toilets clean and functional, 25p tokens for showers, purchase in shop. Quite and relaxed.

Brilliant campsite, helpful owners, well organised, clean facilities, recycling well oranised. There is a small shop on site. Lots of wild life. There is pub grub in the village lasagne, scampi etc all very affordable and enjoyable and within walking distance. It was spring bank week when we visited but still plenty of space and peaceful atmosphere. We can t wait to return and stay longer. We went on a family camping holiday with our 2 daughters and their families and we all agreed we would reurn.

We recently spent the weekend here with friends in order to visit the Square and Compass at Worth Matravers. The site does not take reservations outside of high season but there was plenty of space when we arrived and although it was a beautiful weekend, the site was not crowded.

Pros

Stunning view from the top of the field over Swanage Bay towards the entrance to Poole Harbour.

Lovely stone-free if slightly sloping field with freedom to pitch where you like.

Easy access to stunning coastal walks and a half an hour walk to the world-famous Square and Compass pub.

Cons

The shower block is somewhat poor, with a frustrating system of tokens for showers, a problem which is compounded by the limited opening hours of the reception out of season.

As has been mentioned, the welcome is not especially warm.

Overall, we would go back for a weekend but probably not a longer stay until the bathroom facilities have been improved.
