We have been advised that this cite is now closed to touring caravans, motorhomes and tents, and now offers holiday homes for sale only.

If you know that this situation has changed in the future, please could you let us know.

Many thanks

Very nice site, we where greeted with a friendly smile, The site has a barrier gate that is closed about 22. 00, after that time entry is by entering the code given on arrival, so very secure.

Lots of space for camping mostly level with some slight sloping but not enough to cause any bother.

The showers are probably the best I have seen, a mop and bucket is supplied so to wipe over after use, nice toilets. There is also a family room, and washing up area, The blocks are all cleaned regularly.

There is a small shop on site at reception selling all asentials.

A safe children's play area.

On site bar area with entertainment.

Hawkchurch caters for touring caravans and has statics but I can not comment too much on this as obviously did not experienced it.

Hawkchurch country park is very reasonable on price and in a perfect location to visit Lyme bay and surrounding coastal towns,

I would recommend Hawkchurch to couples or families, we are hoping to return before the children go back to school.

Booked late but got a pitch. Plenty of room, hardly anyone staying. No hot water or showers by the touring/tenting area. Had to walk to another unit nearer to the reception/shop to shower or to wash the pots/pans up, WHY? No activities during the day. Booked for 4 nights but stayed only 3. We were bored on the site. Tent used for sleeping only, we were out all day. Grass cut very short, ideal for tourers. No shady spots.

No we wouldn't be returning here.

Weather gorgeous.

Places to visit are ok, Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, Bridport etc some have hills to climb and steepish to descend. Portland Bill is as nice as its always been and is a great place to visit. Weymouth has a lovely seaside feel to it with many shops and takeaways.

21st July to 29th

Site Location: was very good as it was within a 10 minute drive from Lyme and/or Axminster, easy to get on to the site itself (for caravans or trailers), the security barrier was not working on arrival and we were told it would be fixed the next day (it took 6 days in the end)on the whole a Very tidy, quiet and on the whole well maintained site with great scenery.

Site Facilities: Shower/toilet block by the reception were the best ive ever used; very clean and well maintained, with mop for showers and even heated towel rails and very spacious shower blocks and never a shortage of hot water.

The toilets near the tent were VERY basic and the showers were not in use at all and the lighting in the ladies did not work either. That said we only used it for the toilets/fresh water and showered in the decent block I mentioned earlier.

The Shop left a lot to be desired, for example, I was never able to get a loaf of white bread for the whole of the stay. The closing time was not great either being at 6pm, so if I decided to buy a couple of beers or anything else, after that time I was stuffed unless I went to the club or super market (in Axminster).

This brings me on to the club, this was well presented, clean with friendly staff and the meals were reasonable but basic pub grub type meals. So don't expect too much. The drinks were fairly priced and even had a take out carton for a couple of beers back at the pitch. The club has free broadband which was great until the club filled up, then everything crashed (probably down to peoples phones trying to connect regardless of them using it or not), this annoyed me in particularly as the one night I REALLY needed to use it, it was unavailable.

The site could really do with some more in the way of play area for the kids, as if we were not there with friends (and their kids) my daughter would of been very bored allot of the time.

Our pitch was very good, and almost flat as the field we were on was on a very gentle slope, however the other 2 camping fields were more sloped, so careful pitching would be required.

The broken light and the security barrier into the site did not work for most of the week until a Camping and caravan club rally turned up and then they were miraculously fixed!

Please note: The Camping and Caravan club bulk book the whole site from the last week of July for several weeks, so check with the staff before booking (this is not a bad thing I might add)

All this said, the pros far outweighed the cons and would like to visit the site again

This was our second visit to this site and we were lucky enough to choose our pitch as the electrics were turned off at reception (maintenance work)when we arrived.

We chose pitch 322 if I recall correctly which was used as a seasonal pitch, which seems to be the norm for this site, but it was very quiet with not many touring caravans coming and going and was definitely quieter than last year.

Toilets and showers were fine and clean but the two I used were partially blocked by grass cuttings which is the fault of the campers rather than the site staff. The water in the Mop buckets was dirty and could be doing with being changed a few times a day.

The food in the bar was good although the menu was not as good as the year before (Bring back the Darwin Burger)

The Kids play area is very good too, my daughter loved it.

All in a nice site

Just returned froma 2 week break at Hunters Moon

The access to the site was very easy the site was well laid out mainly to hard standing, but we chose a grass pitch. I would recommend taking a walk around the site to select your pitch as we noticed a few people having difficulty turning there outfits around at the end of the grass pitches.

The 2 toilet blocks where kept immaculate & there was always plenty of hot water. I was never kept waiting for a shower or toilet. The fresh water, waste water & chemical toilet disposal points where also kept immaculate.

Although there was no 'view' at the site it is positioned in an area with so many attractions it never caused me any doubts about staying there again.

The kids found the play ground with in 2 mins of arriving & it must have been good as I was always despatched to round them up for meal times.

Sainsburys in Wearham 5 mins away took a bit of finding & parking could be limited. We found the fish & chips at Long Johns on west street to be far superior to the chip van that visited the site.

I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone wanting to visit Dorset or any of its attractions.

Corfe Castle, Swanage, Studland bay (shell beech actually nice sand & allows dogs on lead) all with in 1/2 drive.
