Just got back from 1 night at this site. This was the first time taking a touring caravan anywhere, (have camped in tent before) so as you might expect we were the afternoon/ evening entertainment!. (yes it did take us that long to figure it all out - including a break to go and get the kids)

Site has a single track road with plenty of passing places leading to it. Friendly welcome with a choice of pitches. We were placed on pitch 31. Well, not the easiest for a first timer, but we reckon if we managed to pitch here we could pitch anywhere. Bit of a slope!. Some friendly experts next door helped us with some advice, and also the young guy who checked us in. He offered the use of a trolley jack to help level the caravan, and found some more concrete blocks for us, nothing was too much much trouble. Thank you!

The site is clean, play park for the 2 kids was amazing. We hardly saw them all evening. Showers are hot and toilet area clean. We did not use the games room, but it was certainly big enough with plenty to do. Wooded area to walk the dog, and they also have a dog free area, which includes the park.

We didn't explore the surrounding area as the purpose of the visit was to test the caravan out before taking it away further from home, but there is loads to do around Blandford, so you won't be bored. We definable go back again to this site, and hopefully spend a little longer.

We booked for a family weekend over the bank holiday, there were 12 of us in total aged from 3 - 65.

What a fantastic place, great staff & great facilities. There's even a bar/restaurant with good food at fair prices.

We loved it so much we stayed an extra night!

The kids had a brilliant time, they enjoyed the play frame and had loads of freedom in the family field.

It's so central to loads of places so you can explore Dorset.

We have just returned from staying over the bank holiday for a couple of nights. We found the pitch to be plenty big enough even for our 7mt beast. The site was almost full but was never noisy even with all the kids enjoying themselves. Was very impressed with the restaurant and bar area. I heartily recommend the local real ale, very tasty! The new shower/toilet facilities were always clean and never seemed busy, with plenty of hot water, even the older facilities were in good condition. Will be looking to return and would recommend this site

I agree with a previous review, that this site could be the perfect campsite with a little more investment and care.

When we got there at 15;00hrs we had to go to find the owner, the lady was not very welcoming but the man who led us to our pitch was very welcoming.

Situated in a village with a pub and shops in easy walking distance it has it all at hand.

We tried Hanlega's which houses the restaurant. The food is very good and a fair price I had steak twice and it was well cooked & very good the menu is fixed. My wife recommends the lamb.

We used the new toilet block for the time we were there and we never had to wait to use them. If site is full the loo's could be a bite of a wait. As in gents there was only 3.

Behind the old block is the Elsan emptying pit and the grey water drain. Both are very primitive and don't make it easy. The grey water drain into the Elsan pit is too small so when emptying the Wastemaster you have to do it slowly or paddle which is what I did.

If they were to have a games room for the older children and had a little shop this would be perfect site. Would we go again yes we would.

A very nice site in the countryside, a short walk to the pretty village of Sixpenny Handley, which has a well-stocked shop. The site has a very good on site bar and cafe which sells local ciders. We found the owners very friendly and they recommended a very good walk around the local area, which we enjoyed very much. Facilities were adequate and clean. I suppose it would have been better if there were more things to do nearby, but very good for a peaceful break in the countryside.

First impressions; The welcome we received at reception was friendly, helpful and polite. We were walked to our pitch and given a tour of the site and facilities. The charges I thought were very reasonable.

There are four fields of varying sizes for campers and caravans with a couple of fixed mobile homes available for rent near the reception. The pitches are mostly flat with a gentle slope in two fields that didn't cause us any problems. The pitches are a good size although our Outwell Montana with extension was a little too big. At busy times this may be an issue for the larger tents. In the field by reception and the bar there is a children's play area.

We used electric hook up for the first time and had no problems. Neighbouring campers kept tripping theirs but I suspect the kettle they were using was drawing too much power. They borrowed ours with no problem.

The old and new toilet/shower blocks were functional. The water was always hot when I went to use it and the blocks were kept clean. The showers are push button in the new block and the single shower in the old block was manual turn on and off. Both shower facilities lacked curtains to help keep clothes dry and there were no shelves for wash kit bits. There is a thin panel separating the shower from the bench. I thought this area of the campsite could have been worked out a little better but it is a small niggle. For families or single parents with younger children there is a family wet room with the usual toilet, shower and sink. This I thought was a nice touch.

Scattered around the site are a couple of drinking water taps.

I didn't use the bar or food facilities but other reviews can tell you about that. Nice to have on site though and had the weather been poor I am sure it would have been used more.

Out and about; Sixpenny Handley is a picturesque village with a pub (didn't visit), newsagents which is a real Aladin's cave of a place that resembles a Tardis! and Post Office. It is a downward hill of a walk through the village with parts of the road single file for traffic. The church is beautiful and the people we saw very friendly. They even let me view the church organ (I'm a musician). The church bells do ring 24hrs every hour and can be heard from the campsite.

Would I go again? I can't wait for the next opportunity.
