 Nice site with it's own beach. Good facilities, shower blocks and toilets very clean. Food of a good standard you do not have to cook at all if need be, Breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper all available on site. Horses and donkeys were an added bonus. Excellent pool. Would like to see more speed ramps on site, and the area by the shops, pool, reception etc to be pedestrianised.

 Just come home from a bank holiday weekend at this site. A lovely clean site with good sized pitches, most with electric, unfortunately not with water and drainage. Toilet and shower blocks immaculate and cleaned throughout the day. Plenty to do for the children with donkey and pony rides, a mini train also goes around the site. Plenty of dog walking areas and abundance of poo bins! Large shop available with good opening hours. All in all a very good site and centrally situated to visit Dorset. Would recommend this site, a shame I can't recommend the weather!

 We went as a family of 3 adults and 2 children aged 9-10 followed by one small dog who stayed for just over a week

First impression when we arrived was that we were squashed together like sardines. However as the time went on, this seemed less important. Toilet and shower facilities were excellent (cubicles - with toilet, basin and shower) plus normal loo's - all very clean.

Playground - good for small kids and the site felt safe to let the kids go to shop and toilets on their own.

Swimming pool - Great fun for kids who could swim all weathers as it was heated - cover for adults supervising kids would have been a bonus.

Beach - Attractive, clean but too rough to swim in sea (also jelly fish). But great walks and kids loved running aroung in the small stones/shingles. Also great for kite flying so take one. Dog also loved it as it was dog friendly.

Entertainment - Didnt go to evening entertainment so cant comment. Kids club ok but staff could have been more motivated and inclusive also teenagers seem to dominate team games so younger kids felt left out. Staff could have got kids mixing more.

TV and Phone signal very poor except vodaphone.

We appreciate staff have a job to do but some of them seemed unfriendly/not warm, i.E we had just spent ages cooking and security came round demanding we sort out our extra car (which we had told them about when we booked) so we had to leave our food to sort it out. Also a cleaner was rushing one of our party to get out of the shower so they could clean it.

Although the last part is a little negative overall it was a great holiday for the kids and the site was clean with lot of friendly people. Would go again if I ever visited a site twice.

 We booked this site last minute before Aug bank holiday and to be honest not my usual type of site really but was impressed.

There are two fields one for tents and caravans and one tents only which is on three levels, I recommend to book the tents only they still have electric more space and not hemmed in feeling(the kids had loads of room to play and private).

The showers were hot and powerful and spotless in fact everywhere was spotless toilets,dish washing area,pool and pitches and all modern(I can moan like Victor Meldrew)but credit due.

The Chippy and shop are excellent but overpriced sorry never went to club but I believe also good, play area decent size.

The pool is outdoor good size and hard to believe but the water is really warm(I do not do cold). There is horse riding on site £12 for 45 mins really good.

Surrounding area is superb very impressed with Weymouth lots to do but not tacky and beach beautiful and safe.

Well worth a visit everybody in our group of 9 would revisit the camping facilities were 10 out of 10.

 We went here due to the reviews on here and the fact that a lovely lady I work with goes here every August bank holiday and couldn't recommend it highly enough!

The pitches,although you have to pitch precisely, are plenty big enough. The site itself is one of the cleanest I have ever been to. The showers are brilliant. The horse riding for £12 delighted both my daughters. The beach,although shingle is brilliant! and throughout our week we spent many a happy hour sunbathing, the girls slashing about and just listening to the amazing sounds of the sea. It can be windy on the beach but it didn't spoil our time there.

The shop is fantastic and very reasonable. The only complaint I would have is the prices of drinks in the club(just short of £10 for a pint, a bud and 2 soft drinks!) and the prices in the chip shop - also very very high.

So,as long as you don't eat from the chippy or go to the club you will have a brilliant very good value for money holiday. The fact that my 13 year old daughter loved it (when ordinarily everything is boring!) is the best testimony you could get !

 Have just returned from a 2 week holiday here in our tent, what a fantastic time! The staff are very helpful and super efficient, we have a large tent and they were very accommodating. Nice flat pitch on a terraced area, ground a bit stony when pegging. Great views, we could see the sea. The showers and toilets are fantastic, always spotless with plenty of room. There were dishwashing and launderette facilities. Plugs were available for hairdryers, chargers etc in the dishwashing room but there were only two so I had to queue a couple of times, more plugs please! There are stables on site which the kids loved. The club is a bit old fashioned, but the entertainment was great, good harmless fun for the kids, bingo, cabaret and a disco to finish. John was great. Didn't use the amusement arcade but the shop was great, reasonable prices. The pool is a nice size with lifeguards on duty and there is a grassed area around it if you want to sunbathe. The on site chippy was tasty but a bit pricey. Security guards patrol the site in the evening which we liked as they kept an eye on things.

A mile down the road is West Bay with a lovely little harbour for crabbing and fishing, and a shingle beach with a lifeguard on duty. There are little shops, amusements, cafe's and pubs. I think we spent most days here.

Bridport is a mile further on and is a lovely town with a street market and a morrisons for your shopping.

Overall we had a fantastic holiday and will definitely return, possibly August bank holiday week!

 We stayed here the 2nd week in August after spending our first week in Cornwall.

Nice sized pitch ( B13) with our own 'terrace' at the back,and very efficient check in via a dirt path but this avoided the site centre and is a good idea at busy times.

Toilet blocks are excellent, always being cleaned! Some shower cubicles have sinks and toilets too. Only thing that needs improving is more sinks as others have mentioned, there really aren't enough.

Pool, busy but it was peak season and my kids prefered the beach/river anyway. Shingle and painfull but we knew that before we went. Down by the river is great(esp at high tide), kids on dinghys and body boards a plenty.

Club we only went in once but kids enjoyed the acts while we sat outside (no room inside as we only got there at 9)

Shop, stocked with all you need, but a Morrisons not far away if you require more variety.

Stables, my daughter went on a donkey ride (quite short but only £1) but there's pony trekking too.

The walk into WestBay is either via the beach or over the coastal path ( very hilly) but worth a visit to this lovely harbour (location for harbourlights with nick berry) we used to walk there most evenings and have a hot chocolate at Mungos mmmmm Lots of other places to visit, Charmouth & Lyme Regis for fossils is a must (don't forget your hammer) everyman and his dog is down there hammering rocks!

No complaints except that the dirt track wasn't open when we left so had to pull the caravan up a V steep hill.

Would we return? Most definitely!

Reviewer: Alfrescobubbles 2 reviews from this member

 We were not sure of the size of our tent when we booked but staff were helpful letting us know why there were rules about the size / parking so safe distance was left between tents.

Staff were helpful and friendly.

Toilets and showers were clean (even after loads of rain!). The shower cubicles had loads of hot water and space for me and at least 1 child to get showered at the same time.

The launderette is not badly priced (£2.50 wash, £1.20 dry).

The shop is well stocked. Food, wine and emergency supplies!

The pitches were well drained and terraced. The kids spent hours scooting down the hills!

The pebble beach is at the edge of the site. The riding stables are on site (book an hour ride as soon as you arrive!)

There is entertainment but quite low key. It was not noisy at night from party animals (other than the donkeys !)

Reviewer: Duffs 9 reviews from this member

 We went to this site as it allowed dogs onto its beach (the stones are a pain but the kids and dogs didn't mind and the beach was always empty).

Everytime I visited the toilets they were being cleaned - even at 6.15am! However the small toilet block has great showers/ hair dryers but only 2 adult and one childs sink. This was a pain as they were always busy.

The pool was a big hit and the life guards were great, rotating their positions constantly. The donkey and pony rides are a bit short for the money but the horse rides were worth it (40 minutes). These need to be booked a few days in advance.

The walks are great, locals friendly (as we met a few on our walks and in the local pub The Three Horseshoes at Burton Bradstock) and the bins are constantly being emptied on site. The takeaway was a bit expensive. Overall a great stay.

 First time at this campsite and what a breath of fresh air it was!

Firstly it was full to the brim of happy campers and everyone was so friendly and pleasant. Yes it is slightly expensive but you certainly get what you pay for.

The facilities are absolutely awesome and as for the camp shop, the prices are as good as it gets.

I would recommend a visit to West Bay, itís about 5 miles by car or half hour walk west along the beach.

Iím no distant stranger to the local area, but you can spend a whole afternoon just soaking up the beautiful views down the Jurassic coastline for miles on end.

We booked this long weekend on impulse a week before departure and I would say to anyone go and have fun and forget the real world that we live in!

If you have a dog they would love you forever to take them.
