Difficult drive up a very narrow road and with few facilities, no electric hook ups. We only used the tap and didn't bother with loos etc. Still a nice place to camp and easy access to coastal path. Walking is best as you don't want to make too many trips up and down the lane!

Just returned from first May bank holiday weekend. We were a group of 7 families with lots of young kids between us.

Swanage is super and the area is lovely. We went mackerel fishing with Marsh's boats on the Sunday and caught 60 fish between 12. All good fun and highly recommended.

The site itself is quite small. We were in the field nearest the toilet block and our 7 tents and a camper van pretty much filled it. The field we drove through to get to our tents was a larger field that had been split by a temp fence with one half used by horses. Our own field had clearly been used by horses recently and in wet weather as the ground had been quite badly churned up making it difficult to pitch at the end nearest the house.

The toilet block was basic. 2 gents 3 ladies and 3 sinks. No soaps or towels no warm water. No shower. At least 1 toilet door (the one I used) would not shut properly. No electrical lighting.

Washing up facilities are basic with a sink in the field with a standpipe next to it.

You are close to the coast but you don't really know it unless you take a short walk to the cliff tops. Great if you are a walker but a shame we didn't have a sea view considering how close to the sea we were.

I didn't meet the owner as the trip was organised by another in our group but they were unobtrusive and didn't mind us using our fire pits into the small hours.

We all had a super time but if you want facilities this isnt the one for you.

This is little more than a farmers field.

The owners have installed a basic loo, water point and washing up area which is tucked away in a small copse of trees.

There is a beautiful walk across fields to the cliff top and the children were happy enough making their own entertainment in the field.

When the field isn't being used as a campsite, the owners keep horses on it, so expect ruts and holes and the odd dollop of manure.

The owners accept groups, so you might get some noise and they allow fires if you ask permission first and raise the fire pit off the ground so it doesn't scorch the grass.

This kind of 'campsite' suits us, we prefer wilder and more basic sites.
