 Perfect stay again.

The most beautiful countryside with the best maintained camp we have visited.

Hats off to the couple that keep it all up together as nothing was to much bother for them

 Nice enough campsite, beautiful views and good location. A lot of the pitches sloped quite a bit. We were lucky and found a pitch that was fairly flat.

Pitches are not marked and although it says on the website, and on a big sign as you drive in, to pitch 6m apart all the groups of friends on holiday we're not even 2ft apart let alone 6m.

A couple of the larger groups were very noisy right up until 11pm most nights and one night even until 12. 45, but then we were not given any list of rules when we arrived so some obviously thought they could do what they wanted.

The facilities were good, toilet block was kept very clean. No freezer to freeze your own ice packs, you have to rent them from the shop which is OK but they were limiting each family to 3 small ice packs each which isn't enough if you have a cool box and want to take out picnics, so not good really. They did agree to freeze a couple that we had taken with us, thankfully.

Overall all it was a nice enough site but I wouldn't rush back.

 Have been staying at Rosewall on and off for past 20 odd years.

Facility’s are always spotlessly clean, lovely site with great views, access to great coastal walks, not far from Weymouth

Friendly staff.

Well recommend

Reviewer: Mostin1066 1 review from this member

 I visited the site with the covid restrictions in place. This would restrict the numbers they could have on site. This meant people could pitch up leaving a good space between them.

The site was clean & well kept. With plenty of hand sanitizer points dotted around the site.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The toilet block was clean. With regular visits from the on site team. For me they had enough facilities on site.

Great good value site with views of the sea.

 Mid Covid situation I chose this site as they had obviously taken precautions on site and was pleased to see they had fulfilled them. Hand sanitiser in the shared areas, distance between pitches and masks in the shop.

A lovely clean site, on a hill but there are level pitches for us tenters. Great views with the bonus of the 8 furloughed Cruise liners in Weymouth bay adding to the spectacle. I was blessed with glorious weather.

From the site you have direct access to the Coastal Path and its obvious miles and miles of walking. I took the dog and she loved it. Obviously you are in the Purbeck hills so some of the climbs can be challenging.

A couple of minutes walk away is the popular Smugglers Arms, great food but you need to book. I was refused a meal on the first night even though there were plenty of empty tables !

Would I recommend this site ! Well I will definitely be returning so I guess yes. I should imagine though it does get busy and although the Shower blocks are spotless and modern there were only 4 showers in our block so I think that could be interesting at times.

 Lovely site, friendly staff, beautiful view, clean shower/ toilet block, efficient rubbish collection, great little shop,

Shame the beach is not swimming friendly but that isn't Rosewalls fault.

Buses at end of road to go everywhere without driving hassle

 Quick one nighter here to see if it was a fab as it was on my last visit last year - it was!

Wonderful sea views from the site and this year there's even the treat of huge great cruise ships anchored in the bay (all out of use due to CV19) - a real sight to behold especially at night when they are lit up like giant Christmas trees!

Toilets and showers extremely clean, and lots of CV19 precautions implemented and followed. Masks worn in the shop to check in

Direct access to the SW Coast Path - I won't repeat the details of the walks which you can see if my previous review of this site in May 19, but suffice to say you won't be bored if walking is your thing.

We had a couple of pints in the Smuggler Pub at the bottom of the hill

Great site, will definitely revisit.

Reviewer: Ratty 279 reviews from this member

 I sent an enquiry from this website and they responded very quickly letting me know they had a pitch for me in my VW and a dog and told me the price for the night was £17. I confirmed my stay.

Upon arrival I had to check in at the shop and settled up. The shop looked well stocked with all the necessities. If you wanted a larger shop these can be found on the way to, or in Weymouth. The lady who checked me in was friendly and advised me to pitch anywhere I fancied, but 6mtrs away from someone else.

The site is on a hill however there are plenty of flat spots to pitch, some with great sea views, some with shelter from the wind, however all pitches are close to bins and fresh water, which all had hand sanitiser in place.

There are two facilities blocks, one at the top an done at the bottom, all very CV-19 safe and clean and tidy at all times. The wardens did a great job keeping them and the site tidy and enjoyable for all and always with a smile and a friendly chat.

Off site there is the Smugglers Inn pub who do a good range of drinks and food, however they had stopped serving food when we went there so I cannot comment. The pub is a 15 minute walk down the hill and the views of the coast are lovely when you get there.

Walking is amazing from the site with the SW Coast Path on the doorstep and you can walk for miles, Weymouth is one way and plenty the other way too. Lots of circular walks if you prefer them to linear, as I do.

Close to Weymouth and all the surrounding areas are easy to reach by car.

I would defo stay again as this was a nice chilled site, with friendly staff, dog friendly and walking all around.

 First visit to this campsite for us but certainly won't be our last! unfortunately for us we only stayed for 3 nights, would have loved to stay longer.

Spotless toilet/shower/wash up facilities.

Excellent customer service.

Lovely sea views and a lovely pub a short walk away.

The field is on a slope but there are flat areas. We found a great spot with a lovely sea view.
