Great welcome, helpful efficient on site managers offering advice re good places to eat, etc. Spotless caravan and site, everything in excellent order, quiet with small number of units. Problem with battery causing alarm to bleep in caravan was dealt with immediately. Electricity meter seemed very economical, we needed one £2 coin during our week in August, didn't need to use heating. Constant supply of hot water at good pressure. We don't have children so I feel unqualified to score child friendliness; I saw good welcomes to families on site and children enjoying the play area. Site is on A35 beside comms mast - a good landmark for finding the entrance. Noise from road was minimal.

OUT AND ABOUT: great Sunday carvery, stone-baked pizzas and grill at Coach & Horses, Winterbourne Abbas. Can walk to Martinstown village with small shop/PO, farm shop/cafe and pub. During our stay we visited Max Gate, Hardy's birthplace and Clouds Hill (all National Trust), St Nicholas' church at Moreton (burial place of Lawrence of Arabia, church windows all etched by Whistler, same family as the painter), Dorchester Museum (welcoming and interesting, shop & cafe and lots to see including Thomas Hardy exhibition), and went to Weymouth Carnival and Melplash Agricultural Show. Good park and ride services to Dorchester and Weymouth, very helpful drivers. A steam train 'park and ride' to Weymouth is advertised at a site on the way to Weymouth, but the term 'park and ride' seemed misleading. We were on a budget looking for a quick, affordable way into town and we paid £3 car park fee before discovering we also had to buy 2 adult returns, costing over £10 each. We drove on to use the bus park and ride service for £3. 50, which was excellent with friendly, helpful staff and frequent buses.

SHOPPING FOR FOOD/SUPPLIES: We used the village shop/PO in Martinstown (including good fresh bread, veg and meat) and did supermarket shopping at Tesco (just before you reach Dorchester) and Morrisons (on the way to Weymouth).

What a find, we stayed here in March before most of the the touring parks are open and stayed in a lovely log cabin.Very clean and cosy, especially when the wind was blowing a gale!
The new mangers Alice and Jon were very welcoming and friendly, and considering that they had only been there since January, are doing a great job, they told us that there are big renovation plans for the site as it does look a bit tired. 
The site is very peaceful especially out of season but does suffer from road noise as the main A35 borders the site.
It is really well situated for all the lovely attractions of West Dorset, with easy access to the big shops of Dorchester.
Nice walk to the Brewers Arms in Martinstown, and a great carvery can be had in the Coach and Horses in Winterbourne Abbas.
Well worth another visit, we shall look forward to seeing how the renovations are going.
