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?

What a lovely site superb pitch fully serviced, the staff were very friendly especially upon arrival showed us to our pitch and made sure we were ok, the pool cost of £2-50 is an extra cost but the upkeep nowadays of a pool is very costly hence the charge.

The cafe very good breakfast as is the steak night quality food and cooked the way you want it.

We heard the boy racer on his bike every evening at the same time but that was the only traffic noise that really stood out.

We fortunately picked the weekend when the guitars on the beach record attempt was on and got a full days entertainment for free and glorious sunshine to go with it, the finale was Ian Gillan playing smoke on the water and all the boats in the bay setting of distress flares with orange smoke drifting across the bay.

The negative part of the holiday was the fishing, there are now no carp or tench in either lake as the otters and cormorants have eating them shame as could be a good fishery.

Overall a very good and pleasing restful holiday will definitely go again.

First time to this site will not be the last (so the wife says?). Very pleasant greeting on arrival and escorted to pitch, we were also given a choice of pitches.

The site is very clean and tidy I used the different toilet/shower blocks and found them all very clean and tidy. The pool was very good and the games room and children's area must have been good as we hardly saw our daughter once we were back on site.

Charmouth and Lyme were both nice places to visit both within walking distance although hilly, bridport and west bay aiso nice places only a short drive.
