 Stayed here for Christmas, the best Christmas ever (even though it rained every day 😂) no stress, no hassle, peaceful, relaxing (no family!) cooked a full Christmas dinner which for once I enjoyed,

The lovely alpacas, the tame sheep Zak & Lulu, lovely scenery, listening to the monkeys at Monkey World that's just down the road,

Lovely helpful manager / warden who helped when our 4x4 got stuck in the mud, yep!

It rained that much 😂😂 even hosing the car & caravan down for us before we left, thank you.

Planning on staying next Christmas too,

 This was a lovely place to stay, family are very friendly and made sure you had everything you needed.

We visited Monkey world next door which is a must for anyone who stay’s here.

We will be back soon…

 Had an amazing weekend. Amazing staff. Had an issue with the coffee machine and they were happy to sort it immediately.

Made some wonderful friends and will defo be going back.

They have some alpacas and even though we didn't book onto the alpaca walk they were very happy to stop and give us lots of information about them.

Never been to a campsite with such clean showers and toilets.

Thank you Longhorns campsite staff

Reviewer: Aruaux 10 reviews from this member

 Really nice campsite!

Easy check in and the pitches are not at all "regimented". Ours was a little bit bumpy in places

( someone may have had a heavier vehicle on it) but this encouraged us to pitch our tent facing longways and not facing into the centre of the field. Which was actually very pleasant and a bit more private!

We did have a smaller tent for the kids to sleep in as well. But plenty of room for the two tents.

Toilets and showers were clean, water hot and plentiful. Same with the washing up area, and never had to queue for either and the site was by no means empty nor did it seem to be at full capacity.

Fire pits to hire were easily available and you get it for the duration of your stay, just pay for extra logs and kindling. I loved the eco friendly firelighters! No smell and work a treat!

Shop has all the essentials and reasonable prices. There is a takeout food menu but its not available on Mondays so we got one from a place recommended by Longhthorns which does deliver or you can go to (its a mile down the rd in Bovingdon Camp) and was really nice.

Every evening there were quite a few people sitting out by a "campfire", which was lovely. First time I've ever had toasted marshmallows!

For anyone who likes Stargazing. A great spot to look at the night sky.

Campsite was lovely and quite after 10pm as per the sites rules.

Monkey world is literally right next door and you can easily walk there, its probably quicker to walk than drive! We did hear the Gibbons hooting in the morning! Brilliant!

Tank Museum is five mins by car, well worth a visit, and much to my surprise, had many families and people of all ages !

I thoroughly recommend Longhthorns, a real gem of a site! Will definitely go back.

 Great location for a holiday, right next to Monkey World and Tank Museum just down the road, close to both Weymouth and Poole, both worth visiting. In short yes, we do plan on going back because we had a good holiday here :D

In more detail:

Site itself is really nice, mainly flat or gentle slope, several fields and space for the kids to play in the middle of each field. Pitches are round the edge of the field on most fields, they also have glamping and shepherds huts which look nice. Alpaca, and very friendly sheep are added bonus as is the woodland walk. You can book to take the alpaca for a walk if you wish. No playground for kids.

Small shop/Reception open 8am to 8pm, has basics but not much more. Apparently you can order food (orders by 4pm) Tuesday-Sunday but we did not try that and a bar open for a couple of hours in the evening with a large fire pit outside if you don't have your own.

Definitely need to take your torches as the site is not lit. Toilet blocks do have internal lights but none in the washing up area so take a lantern with you or wash up whilst the sun is up ;)

Site quietened down at a reasonable time each night but fellow campers were never noisy anyway just a few feral kids running around too close to fire pits at times which was irritating - not the site's fault. Main noise is from the tanks as the tank driving school is just up the road. They go out about 8pm and are usually back by 11pm, only once did they come back at 3:30am and woke me up but not anyone else in the tent! It is noisy but only lasts maybe 5 minutes each time so really isn't a big deal, its a bit longer when they have the helicopters going too!

In the morning you can hear the singing monkeys which is rather cute.

The washing up area and wash rooms were cleaned very regularly and cant fault them in this respect. They are closed when they are doing a deep clean late morning each day but you can use the loo in the family room when your loo block is closed and it was never a problem. Although there were only 6 loos and showers in the ladies (4 loos, 2 urinals and 6 showers in the mens) they were never crowded and never had to queue. Biggest problem was water pressure so the toilets did not fill up quick enough which meant either you often could not flush or had to wait before you could flush, good pressure in the showers though.

No shortage of hot water for showers or washing up. Tip: if showers were quiet you need to press the button 1-3 times to run the cold off before if got warm, press and run!

What could be improved:

1. More opportunities for campers to meet the alpaca, you could see them all the time but they did not come very close to the fence, plus having their names up and info about them would be nice

2. Lighting in the washing up area (there is a light but guessing the bulb is only 2W )

3. Cubicles with a sink in so you could have a wash in private.

4. Install a divider wall across each shower cubicle with a seat. So, currently they are like extra long toilet cubicles with hooks on the back of the door. You can put your things in a bag so they don't get wet but its challenging to get dressed and keep things dry when there is no bench/stool to keep things off the floor and the whole floor area gets wet.

5. More powerful hairdryer needs to be installed. Currently the hand dryers have more oompf and when you have long thick hair that takes an age to dry this is important

Please note that due to Covid they do NOT have a freezer to refreeze your ice packs (very annoying because we are all capable of putting them in a bag and sanitising them before using them again) but they do sell ice, nor do they have phone charging stations so either turn your phone off or have good battery packs.

They did say that their phone signal was bad, it was around the reception area but on our field we had good signal and 4G no problem. All tourist places need to be booked in advance on their websites (and some restaurants too) so this was more critical than normal.

 Peaceful, well kept. Lovely.

Only issue was there was no phone signal if you wanted it.

Good location, pretty site, can hear the monkeys from monkey world next door :)

 Really great location for visits to Monkey World.

They have a llama walking activity you can do which looked fun.

Other than that due to the location you will need to drive to find anything else to do.

I was there during the pandemic but it was a shame the people who run the site were not around much and the shop was shut, but it was an odd time.

It is kept next to a working farm so children would need to be an eye on

Reviewer: Pendletons 2 reviews from this member

 Camp site staff were very friendly via email and in person. Clean and functional washing and showering facilities.

The site was near empty owing to it being October half term but despite the wind and the rain we had a great family holiday.

Beautiful location with lost of activities nearby for young and old - wood and stream great for children's adventures, Monkey World and Tank Museum a few minutes away, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe castle all there for the taking!

Fantastic campsite in beautiful Dorset

 Very warm welcome, lovely family run campsite.

Good facilities, Covid deep cleaning was very reassuring. Shop was good, but only open sporadically. Did food ordered by 4pm, we didn't indulge but nice to know it's there.

Bovington tank range over the road, so a few tank manoeuvres, not too loud and I thought very cool.

Alpacas on site were absolutely adorable!

The site is split into camping, yurts and glamping, lovely woodland walk.

The field over is a glider club, so a few aircraft whipped over, but very quiet.

Situated in a lovely part of the world, we did the tank museum, Duffle door, Corfe castle and Poole Quay.

Can't recommend this site enough 😀

 Well laid out maintained to a high standard.

Could do with a tap at the Elsan unit. Given the current situation with covid lots of space between units.
