We had a long weekend here, so we could visit the Black Cow distillery (within walking distance). Lovely time, lovely site, Kevin very friendly. He'd just repainted floor in the shower block so it was immaculate! My criteria is 'how many spiders are there in the loo' and this was a totally acceptable number. Good lighting, lack of spiders, clean and tidy.

The site itself is on a gently slope, but flat pitching is there, you just find your pitch and settle down. When we were there, there was only two other units, long time visitors actually, they were also more than happy with the site.

A lovely quiet, relaxed place to stay - no facilities apart from the shower block. Cows in the field, walks all around. Super.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights at end of February. We did miss the sign to the site but when we arrived, Kevin met us and directed us to pitch. It is lovely there. Overlooking the lake with ducks and a kingfisher. We had an outing or 2 but was great to just chill on site. Will definitely go back to see Kevin and stop a few nights. The shower/toilet block wasn't to bad for out of season. Just a bit muddy outside as rained quite hard

Just spent yet another wonderfully relaxing weekend at West Lea - not sure why we haven't written a review before. Maybe because we want to keep the place to ourselves (its THAT nice!). By far our favourite site for peace and quiet and with plenty of dog walking. Kevin greeted us and as always was the perfect host. Showers and toilets are, as stated by others, basic - but there is plenty of hot water and as long as you remember to keep it clean for the next person there shouldn't be a problem. Would definitely recommend this site if you want to get away from it all and just recharge your batteries.

This is a very quite location well away from noise which is lovely, electric hook up is great and the free showers a bonus but do need a good clean up.

The owner is helpful.

The roads to the site are single track but we found it easily, there is a very steep bit down to the site which is a challenge :) the only thing I would say is more signs around the site would be helpful or a little leaflet with details like rubbish, local shops ext would be brilliant. We will be going back as the peace was lovely.

Reviewer: Johnabacus 17 reviews from this member

Booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for two weeks. As previous reviewers have said it's a little difficult to find as the sign at the end of the drive is only visible from one direction and the satnav sent us to the wrong location. Access is via single track roads so it would be a bit tricky with a caravan. Having said that we only had to reverse once in the whole two weeks as it's so quiet. We had the site to ourselves for the first week but even when there were four units there was never any problem using the toilets and showers (which are free). Bridport (where the TV series Broadchurch was filmed) has a good variety of shops/supermarkets and pubs. The Wetherspoons pub has some great weekday deals for food including a drink. Plenty of parking including a dedicated car park for motorhomes at West Beach. Kevin, the owner of the site, was a fantastic host. There to give advice without being obtrusive. If you want a quiet site to relax this is the site for you.

This was everything we look for in a campsite. Such a friendly, relaxed and helpful owner, a lovely location in the countryside and lots of walks accessible from the site. Our 4 dogs could be exercised in Kevin's fields, (picking up after them of course as always). Our pitch had the river on one side and the pond on the other, with several lovely geese and ducks. The walk around the woods was lovely and led into Drimpton, from where we walked across the countryside for miles. It would be wonderful if all farmers kept the footpaths on their land as clear as Kevin does.

This site is suitable mainly for adults as there are hazards for children, like the river and the farm machinery that they are inevitably drawn to. Ideal for walkers, dog owners and those wishing to just get away from it all for a while. Fresh water and CDP are easy to get to, as are the toilets and showers, although we used our own facilities. We went for 3 nights and stayed for 5 and there are still many places we never got to visit. We will most definitely return.

Pleasant site on a working farm, children enjoyed seeing the farm animals etc. But you need to keep an eye on them. Shower & toilet facilities are basic but ok for a small site. Difficult to find so better signs might help & a long narrow rather bumpy approach lane to get there. Bit windy when we were there we survived OK. Friendly family running it. Nice walks nearby in the woods & pond to explore.

The area is well located for exploring that part of Dorset, Bridport is a really nice town with good beaches nearby at West Bay. Beaminster is a small sleepy town but some nice shops and we had a lovely weekend, all in all a site to be recommended.

This is a site you will either hate or love. It is down a very narrow lane, along a bumpy track. The toilet block is basic and a bit scruffy. The site is not suitable for poorly supervised children as it is on a working farm. Having said that we loved it! It is perfect for a quiet, basic site away from roads. The showers were free, there is a fridge with a freezer compartment, and a field and stream for the dog. The site owner is friendly and helpful. The nearest pub is a 10 minute walk through fields, it is dog friendly and does good food. The site is convenient for the coast and some good walks. Perry's cider farm is a shortish drive away. Bridport is a lovely town, and Tett's butchers in Beaminster is wonderful.

A great campsite in a great location.

Came on this site as a first time visitor, didn't know

What to expect, found the site to be absolute solice, you couldn't wish for a more peaceful and tranquil site. A bit basic but adequate for my wife and me. The site owner was really hospitable. One thing I will say is to take care on approach roads as they are quite narrow. Unfortunately had to cut our stay short because of family issues, but wouldn't hesitate to go back. Many thanks from Barry&Paula

Am loathe to recommend this site, purely because I don't want to have to struggle to book on it in future! To me, it has to be one of the most idyllic CL/CS sites I have ever stopped on. Relaxed, peaceful, gorgeous views, friendly owner, dog friendly - we could not fault it.

Facilities are basic but adequate if you do not want to use your own shower/toilet. It is up to fellow guests to keep the provided facilities in decent order for the next users but this was not a problem when we were on site.

For dog walkers this site is brilliant as Kevin lets you use his fields (as long as the grass has been cut) to exercise your dogs. There is also a stream, pond and small wooded area to explore. It's about a 10-15 minute walk through the fields and woods to the local village pub, which is also dog friendly and does food.

Only problem we had was in finding the site - our sat nav took us past the small road which leads to the site and then it took us another 2 attempts to find it! Be warned that all roads that lead to this site are single track. Make sure you do your research using google maps on how to get there!
