I stayed here in June of 2015 and left a review of the site at the time.

My summing up of the site in 2015 was that it was 'Frankly, a superb camp site let down by the fact that a public thoroughfare runs right through it. ' I see this sentiment was echoed by other reviewers as well.

I am however happy to report that management now route coach trips through a new woodland walk and so there is no longer the problem of a thousand tourists traipsing past your tent and pebble-dashing the toilets.

I will be pleased to award this site more stars than before and also note that the management of Durdle Door itself has vastly improved with far less litter than before and some attempt being made to stop tourists straying off the paths and destroying a world heritage site.

More needs to be done in the latter regard though. Maybe they need to invest in some actual fences.

The on site team could also do more to stamp out loud music and car engines being left running but apart from that, customer service is really good.

Oh, and the wooded area is still infested with crows which means constant squabbling and screeching, starting from about 5am, and everything gets covered in crow poo.

Stayed in a camping pod for 3 nights, lovely campsite, toilets and showers all very clean. The shop is a bit pricey. We didn't eat at the Blue crab so can't comment. The only problem was the rooks, VERY noisy day and night and as soon as the food comes they gather like vultures.

We stayed for two nights in our small vintage caravan. The main part of the site seemed clean and very pleasant and the loos and showers were clean and well serviced. When we arrived, the staff were polite, friendly and helpful.

For the premium price that we were paying, we felt we'd be guaranteed a premium pitch. We were disappointed to find that the 'Sea View' pitch that we had been allocated was on a very steep slope that ran right down to the cliff edge! Not great, or particularly safe, for an old caravan such as ours.

We were also not happy to find that the pitch was not part of the main site but was, effectively, on the edge of the (obvoiusly very busy) public carpark for Durdle Door. Hardly what one would expect given the price of our stay. Had we been staying for more than a couple of nights, we would certainly have requested an alternative pitch or a refund.

As we had booked over the phone a few months in advance, I feel that the undisputable shortcomings of the Sea View pitches should have been made clear to us. We would definitely NOT have booked had we known.

In summary, the site and staff are lovely, but the Sea View pitches are clearly not worth the very high price.

Arrived in site, very friendly reception staff explained everything and some.

Our pitch was extremely large with electric and grey water waste, we were not on the sea view part of this site, when we walked that way the pitches with sea views we felt were an extension of the public car park, and not at all flat.

A nice walk to Lulworth Cove but a busy walk with plenty of fellow walkers and school children.

The site is the main route down to Durdle Door and there is plenty of traffic going through the site to get to the car park.

The Blue Crab restaurant and bar we felt was reasonably priced and good pub food the bar prices were normal prices.

A good shower and toilet block, clean warm and plenty of hot water.

Stayed here for 3 nights. A cheery and friendly welcome on arrival and given a site map with barrier code and shower block code and pitch number. I chose a premium pitch with EHU, water and grey water drain. These pitches back onto the road leading to the public beach carpark so there is traffic during the day.

I am pleased I didn't choose a sea view pitch there are only small low wooden posts in between you and the huge public car park. As a lone traveller I would have felt vulnerable.

The showers are clean and fresh with plenty of hot water. There is a well stocked shop on site. I didn't eat at the cafe so I can't comment.

I couldn't get any digital TV reception at all but the free wifi was good enough to stream live TV on my iPad. This could have been because the site wasn't very busy so achieved better wifi.

This is a walkers paradise. Some of the walks are a little challenging but well worth the views. Lulworth Cove is definitely worth the walk. There is a visitors centre, gift shops, ice cream, cafe and a pub. Quite commercial in one sense but everything has been done sympathetically to the surroundings. Also everywhere seems to be very dog friendly.

A word on the rooks! There is noise from them but I got used to it in no time. It became a back ground noise I didn't notice and they are quiet at night so no sleep disturbance.

I would definitely return to this site one day but only out of high season as I would think the surrounding areas get extremely busy.

Stayed for 4 nights on a Sea View Pitch. The Pitch had an amazing view and watching the sun set was lovely but it was right at the back of the public car park for Durdle Door - the car park is shut at night and it didn't bother us although during the day it was reasonably busy and we were very conscious of security. The sea view pitches are very sloped so chocks definitely needed (the other pitches were a lot flatter and more manicured) The shower block was always clean although a little cold at times and a bit of a walk from the sea view pitches. There is a good pub on site and the food was nice, also quite a well stocked shop. Lulworth cove is only 20min walk over the headland and we could see Durdle Door from the van so plenty to do.
