The pitches will accommodate large mobile homes, such as Winnebago, and single and double axel touring caravans.

FIND ANOTHER CAMPSITE!!!!!!

June 1st to June 8th 2012. Just got back home from this campsite. Booked last September, paid up in full a month ago for electric hook up on grass pitch. Arrived late on Friday to find that our pitch had been given to others and that we were not on the list! Showed security our receipt He then gave us pitch with a sharp slope! Went out Saturday for shopping at Swanage came back to find half of pitch taken up with another tent! and could not access to park car next to trailer tent due to several other tents and cars in the way. Site was over crowded even in the two extra fields that were opened up, this over loaded the already meager toilet/ shower facilitys. Saturday night could not get to sleep until 2.30am due to shouting, music and swearing from neirbouring pitch. Site sells bags of logs for burning on grass, with tents/ caravans/ cars packed so closely together this could have been very dangerouse had a fire caught a tent. Monday night, more noise until 2am from a large group of caravans who had coralled themselves around a bonfire! The field for electric hook up has only 6amp supply (this has just been installed this year), the cable supplying hook ups is only 4mm. This results in voltage drop occurring over long cable distances, (I am an Electriction, so I know these things) which means your van electrics do not work properly, ie kettles take ages, 12v transformers shut down, water heaters take ages etc. Lastly, my Wife and I are in our mid 50's, We have camped since we met at 20 with our four children and many of their friends, I would have to say that at peak times this site is not family friendly and more suited to the Halfords camping brigade than seriouse campers who enjoy open spaces for their children to play.
