We've recently spent six nights at Wood Farm and really enjoyed this site, The staff are great and on arrival we were shown to our pitch which was very helpful. The pitches (ours was a fully serviced pitch) are quite small and some due to the hilly nature of the site look very difficult to get in to.

The facilities on site are very good especially the cafe & pool area everything is always immaculate, there are plenty of things to keep you occupied and there are great walks on site as well as from the site. The only real issue we had was the road noise, we were pitches at the top of the site directly under the road and on Sunday the noise from speeding motorcycles was very loud. The site is perfectly positioned to explore the fantastic counties of Dorset & Devon, Charmouth is only a short but very hilly walk from the site.

If you need provisions we would advise a short drive into Axminster as the local shops are very expensive (especially the Butcher in Charmouth nearly £10 for 4 sausages, burger and kebabs which although advertised as home made were really poor wholesale quality) Great site, great location, great staff well worth a visit!

First time staying here in our caravan. The site is easy to find and is situated in a very scenic area. Lovely views from our 'van. Staff at check in very helpful and accommodating & showed us to our pitch straight away. The site is set up into several different areas each with its own different shower/toilet blocks and prep/pot wash areas. There's also a choice of tent pitching areas too. Other facilities include swimming pool & cafe which doubles as a pop up restaurant in the evening, visiting fish & chip van once a week, games room for the youngsters, info room, fishing lakes situated just a short walk away and laundry room. These facilities are very clean and well kept. The site is well maintained and cared for generally by the staff. We found the site quiet in the evening and overnight which we liked. There is a main road nearby but we weren't bothered by the noise at night, and during the day we were out anyway.

One difficulty to mention that we had was due to the fact the whole of the site is on different levels - some very steep. This meant that with our section already being full of closely parked 'vans at the time we arrived it was very awkward to manoeuvre our 'van into its pitch - took lots of attempts to place it correctly. So you need to be aware of this when you book.

On our section both the individual shower/toilet rooms and the other block of separate showers/toilets/wash basins were closed for cleaning starting about 10. 15 each morning. We found this inconvenient on more than one occasion and we weren't the only ones grumbling either. Given that most people like to use them during the morning and have to take turns along with fellow guests the use time of the facilities can be over several hours. Closing them at such a busy time led to frustration. We suspect that a later cleaning time (afternoon maybe when most guests are off the site or busy doing other things on site) would be much better for most guests.

My husband and I arrived and the reception staff were very helpful, they assist you in helping to choose a pitch when you arrive, we were recommended the first pitch on the highest tier, which in hindsight was not the best pitch for us as later in the afternoon when we were in the caravan the lower pitches had the sun and we were in the shade, yes you are near the main road, we were told that the road noise settled down after 5, but it was more like 7 however it never really bothered us until the road was closed due to a fatal accident, then you really noticed how noisy the road was.

We found the site lovely, the showers were very clean every time we used them, my husband fished and caught, we used the pool and had this to ourselves both times. The site is quite steep in places so be mindful where you are pitched if you have mobility issues, we are now fitter that we were!

We would highly recommend this site, as our visit was out of school holiday time we only saw 2 children and the site do try and pitch according to your outfit / person putting families near the play area and couples higher up.

We did not eat in the cafe but the food looked lovely and other guests said it was good value.

The information room and children's play room are well equipped along with the outdoor play area and dog walks.

Charmouth beach is great but a steep walk back, Lyme Regis is beautiful, we would recommend the sea food restaurant in Beer! and the Ferleigh Wine tour.

This site is an ideal base to visit Beaulie, Monkey World and Beer Caves.

We spent 4 nights at Wood Farm in the Hillside field. It is a lovely site that is kept spotless. The site is easy to find straight off the A35.

The Hillside field is free camping rather than allotted pitches. The field is very hilly so there are only a limited number of areas you would want to pitch to avoid camping on a slope.

Many of the reviews point out the road noise as a negative of the site. We werenít bothered by it at all possibly because the Hillside field is the furthest point on the site from the road.

The facilities were great. There are four toilet blocks which are cleaned daily (mid morning) and we found them spotless throughout our stay. The showers are push button and of a good warm temperature. The washing up area was also clean with washing up cloths provided in case you had forgotten one. The distance from the Hillside field to the nearest toilets was the biggest negative to us. Although only approx 300metres this was uphill on the way back because we camped at the top of the hill, and it felt quite a trek at night.

There is a combined shop & reception selling basics but it isnít the cheapest. The swimming pool is a good size and temperature, and open most of the day. There is also a games room (table tennis, pool, air hockey and soft play section), a cafe and an outdoor play area although we didnít use these.

There is WiFi available to purchase on site. £10 for 4 days on 2 devices but the signal is very weak on the Hillside field so we had to walk down to the toilet block if we wanted to use it.

They donít allow the use of bicycles, scooters, skate boards on site for Health and Safety reasons which seemed harsh.

Wood farm is a mile from Charmouth. A pretty place but limited in facilities. You could walk it but beware it would be a steep climb on the way back!

Lyme Regis is about 2 miles (also a hilly walk) and is more substantial than Charmouth with some lovely little shops, cafes, pubs and ice cream stalls! The walk along the sea front is really nice although it gets really busy in good weather it seems. There is also a Tesco express and Co-op for any food essentials although if you want a bigger supermarket youíll need to go to Axminster which is 5 miles from the site.

Wood Farm is a beautiful site that is well maintained with friendly helpful staff.

Stayed in the hillside camping field, nice and quiet, great view. Longer walk to great facilities but nothing too far. Yes there is a little road noise but it's not too distracting over the noise of the birds and cows. All in all a great site.

Tesco's in axminster 10 mins away for supplies. Lyme regis 5 mins way, charmouth walkable (but not much there!)

We stayed at Wood Farm back in the 90's when we had our caravan so this return visit was a long time coming!

Easy access straight off the very busy A35. Really friendly check-in and shown to pitch too. We had a lovely large hardstanding in the first section with views over the Dorset countryside. However, we were close to the road and it was very noisy all day and some of the night.

Great facilities. Not sure how many blocks they have but there are plenty. Our closest one was spotless and even had separate shower rooms. Great indoor washing up area too.

Good shop with essentials, not cheap but convenient. Wi-Fi was VERY expensive.

The walk into Charmouth is easy, downhill all the way (but obviously not on the way back!). Not much in Charmouth these days or so it seems. Both pubs were closed in the afternoons! However we did go back to the George in the evening and had a lovely meal.

The walk into Lyme Regis, up over the hill and golf course, is harder than you think but do-able. We got the bus back (£3 each for a less than 5 minute ride but it saved walking up that hill!). Lyme is lovely, much better than Charmouth, with lots of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants to while away a sunny day people watching. We had a fantastic meal in the Rock Point Inn, sat on the terrace in the very warm sunshine, overlooking the bay. Perfect.

Wood Farm is a beautiful, well looked after site, and as much as we'd love to return one day I think the road noise may put us off?
