 Generally the site was excellent, with good clean toilet/shower blocks, although there were a couple of issues which would make me think twice about coming back: There is a field of donkeys nearby which started making an 'ee awe' sound at daybreak, so I'll be bring some ear plugs if we come back!

Also, the pitches seem quite close together and although I'm sure they are a regulation width apart, it would be nice to have the odd hedge or tree to separate us from our fellow campers.

The site staff were friendly and efficient, so much so that they came round on their golf buggy, with a clip board at 9.58am to check we were vacating at the required 10am.

At other sites I have had issues bringing my works van on to sites, as it is sign written, although the management at this site were very accommodating and give me no hassle. Lovely part of the country, and a good site with some cliff top walks nearby, and a Morrisons 2 miles away.

 We have just returned from a 5 night tent holiday and I have to say that Freswater Beach is by far the best campsite we have visited in the last 5 years.

The only minor criticism is that all the pitches are as close as possible with not a huge amount of room to spare - that said there is more than ample space for the kids to play all around the site.

The pool(s) are a good focal point and very well supervised. The park is popular also for younger kids.

The bar area is a little basic but very reasonably priced and the evening entertainment is worth seeing but that is dependant on taste!

Toilet and shower blocks are immaculate and cleaned throughout the day although the adjacent washing up area could have a few more sinks!

I would strongly recommend this site to anyone taking kids on holiday - I will definitely be taking mine back!

 Booked this site last minute on the basis of the reviews and it did not let us down.

Staff were helpful; facilities are very clean, plenty of hot water and showers. The pool is a good size and the life guards are relaxed enough to allow the kids to have fun whilst being safe, last site I went to with a pool about all they could do was swim up and down.

Did not bathe on the beach, the shingle hill is a recent addition and can be hard work, a walk over the cliffs in either direction or nip across the golf course and there are better beaches for bathing. The lagoon is fantastic for kids, be warned it is deep in the middle, having said that there is no current so inflatableís are safe.

Unlike other campsites I have been to this one is not isolated and it is fantastic to be able to walk to so many places, including Bridport or hop on a bus, £16.00 for a family of four to hop on and off the X53 all day, which goes from Exeter to Weymouth, free for Freedom pass holders.

The Club house, yes it is a little dated but all being refurbished next year to include an indoor pool and bowling alley. Prices in the bar not to bad although we rarely used it. The shop stocks almost anything at reasonable prices.

The horses and donkeys on site are great fun; make sure you have a few carrots or apples to hand.

Having thrown many a hormonal tantrum over going camping this year, my 16 year old on the 3rd day turned round and said when we come back next year. I think that says it all.

Hope the prices donít hike up to much with the new facilities as overall we found it good value for money.

Last note, yes they are hot on cars displaying tickets for the site and leaving at 10, this is probably as although it is a large site there is limited parking for cars.

 Just got home from a long weekend camping with friends.

We were very impressed with this site. Spacious well drained pitches, clean toilet/shower facilities, hot showers, large club house, cosy cellar bar and restaurant. The fish and chips were good from the take away as were the steaks and curry in the restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful. The shop was well stocked and not over priced. The bars and food outlets were also priced fairly.

The only slight criticism we had was that the beach was accessed by a huge dune of shale which I found impossible to negotiate. The swimming pool made up for it though!

On site there are riding stables with a large selection of horses, ponies and donkeys; adult and toddler pools; play area; amusements and nightly entertainment. There are plenty of attractions around the area, something for everyone. Monkey World is always a must for us.

Hoping to go back next year to use the new development of indoor pool and ten pin bowling.

 Fantastic site, a bit pricey but you get the facilities to back it up, the pitches are well marked out, with plenty of space for tent, car and anything else you require.

The toilets, shower and dish washing facilities were amazing, always clean, bright and airy, no cobwebs (big issue for me!) There is also laundry facilities in each toilet block but we didn't use them. From what I saw the evenings were well patrolled by site staff and security.

Perfect sited with breath taking walks along the coastal paths. Be aware the beach attached to the site it shingle / pebble until you reach the areas where the sea is meeting it then its more like sand.

The shop is perfectly stocked and some items cheaper than the local Morrisons, you name it they stock it, brilliant.

Reception on arrival was very knowledgeable and friendly with a welcome pack with all the info yu required for your stay.

We will most definitely being going again, as it was very relaxing.

 Spent a long weekend at this park with my husband, daughter, her partner and my grand daughter.

Very busy campsite that was set out really well. Even though it was really busy we had plenty of space around us as the pitches are clearly marked. Very central to the Jurassic coast, Hubby enjoyed the fishing.

The toilet block was very clean especially considering it was Whitsun weekend. Ditto the showers.

We had no TV reception or Radio reception at all while there and was convinced that our TV had packed up but as soon as we were home it worked fine so it must be one of those areas.

You can use wi fi while your there as long as you purchase 'airtime'.

We had a meal in the pebbles restaurant and it was wonderful and reasonably priced as well.

Didn't use the club so cannot really comment on that but we did use the shop and that was really really well stocked (you wouldn't believe some of the things that are stocked there).

All in all, we had a fantastic long weekend there and would really like to visit there again.

 We came back today and had a lovely time. The site is lovely and clean as every review says. It was so nice to go into clean toilet blocks. My personal criticism is that the on site chip shop is overpriced and the food wasn't up to much. However if you drive a few miles down the road to 'West Bay' then you can buy from about 10 different chipshops and eat around the harbour.

We went down on a Friday evening and the place was buzzing with people eating everywhere. We would definitely go back to this site again.

 Lovely site! Although when we went, very windy! The staff are amazing. The man that runs the site, during the day he is organising donkey rides and in the evening comparing the in the club-house! If you like family run sites, this is perfect for you.

There is a large club-house where the food and drink are priced fairly.

The site also has a fantastic swimming pool area. There is a huge big pool and a over-sized kiddies one too. Also all around the pools has non-slip surfacing, so kids can run about wet!

My only concern about this site is that the traffic is busy new the toilets - I think they need to work on the lay-out so that car avoid this area as kids are playing here, there and everywhere.

Oh nearly forgot! On this site too, is a cracking fish and chip shop and again not over-priced.

 This is a lovely clean, well set out site. The amenities were great & well tended.

Toilet blocks were plenty, clean & warm.

The on site restaurant was fairly priced & friendly.

The only downside the beach is a pebble beach, although on the photo it looks sandy. But it was clean.

The playground was good but would've been better a little bigger for the size of site.

There is a load of things to do in the surrounding area 7 is a beautiful part of the country.

Reviewer: Kirkandwendy 3 reviews from this member

 The site is lovely. The facilities are excellent. Loved the horesriding and has good entertainment. The pool, though outdoor, is heated and very pleasant.

However, despite this, I think the site is expensive and the rules / costs involved in what you can and can't put on your pitch are ridiculous. We only had a small tent and wanted to pitch a small pup tent. This would have cost double what we paid despite being on a small pitch taking less room than many with large tents. I expected to pay £2-£3 per night extra but not what they were asking. I would love to visit again but other sites offer much better value for camping.
