We have just returned from downshay and had a wonderfull week when we arrived we where shown two pitches one right at top and one at bottom near the loo's etc, we chose the bottom one for that reason as the top one seemed a smaller pitch, its a fantastic area to visit, and a short walk down to Harmanns cross station, We used the steam railway a lot and if you use it after 1800hrs its only 4, 00 per person and you can travel as much as you like on one ticket, we went to Corfe caste for a meal then to swanage for a couple of pints and back to Harmanns cross.

The showers and loo's are kept very clean as is the site, all in all fantastic week and will be returning to this site and a wonderfull part of Britain.

Wonderful views, esp from the very top field, be warned tho, the best views come with sloping ground, so bring some extra padding or wriggle back all night! We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, clean showers/loos and a very friendly farmer. Tap his local knowledge for the best eateries.

Highly recommended.

My 2nd review for this lovely site. It's always a pleasure to return to Downshay, I'm sure everyone on here knows about the beautiful area of Corfe and Swanage etc.

I recently met up with friends here although as you are unable to book ( understandably) a particular pitch, this time we were not on the same level. But in actual fact it worked out better in many ways. I like the easiness of the site and although the toilet/shower block are a bit dated they are always clean and well maintained. The views toward Corfe are spectacular with the sunsets to die for! All in all, if you are looking for a relaxing pretty place to stay awhile then I can thoroughly recommend Downshay Farm.

We have just spent a week on this delightful and picturesque site, and what a little gem it is. Especially if you can have a pitch on the top terrace like we did, as you have spectacular views over the Valley. On arrival you need to stop short of the tarmaced caravan field road and check in at the house. Our comment would be for the owner to erect a permanent sign to this effect, because if you were to go further down you cannot turn around. Other than that, this is a lovely site.

The showers have plenty of hot water(superb) and the toilets are unisex but perfectly adequate. Swanage is only 5 minutes down the road and the Costcutter this end of the high street is ideal for your grocery shopping, with the added bonus of a butchers inside ! Worthy of a mention is Harlees fish & chip shop just along a bit, the food is to die for. We would certainly return to this site in the future.

We've been visiting this lovely area for years, but have always previously rented a cottage. This was our first time in the campervan, so I did a lot of research and Downshay Farm didn't disappoint. We couldn't have arrived at a worse time - 6pm on a sunny Sunday in August, but even then, having had a little walk around we managed to find a reasonably level spot with amazing views across the valley to Corfe Castle and Nine Barrow Down.

Even at this busy time of year, we rarely had to queue to use the showers or to wash up and there was always plenty of hot water. All the facilities were kept clean and tidy with loads of loo roll, hand wash and paper towels.

A van comes each morning with the papers, pastries etc. Happy days!

Just returned from a wonderful stay at this site. No designated pitches in two large fields allows you plenty of space with no over crowding. The views over to Corfe Castle are amazing especially at sunset. Worth paying just for that. The fees are good value for money which the farmer collects in the morning. There are three shower/toilet blocks that were clean and with plenty of hot water and I never had to queue once for. The site has a lovely rural tranquil feel to it that I would recommend to anyone that wants to get away from it all.
