We had a field with excellent views over Swanage, great location; approx. 1 mile walk into the town. Friendly staff and great facilities including a new shower block with large individual cubicles, bench, sink and loo, perfect for a family. The dog loved it too.

We stayed here over Easter weekend from the Saturday to Tuesday, we were booked to stay the Tuesday night too but left early because the toilets and showers were so dirty and disgusting. They were not cleaned the whole time we were there and looked and smelt as though they hadn't for some time. Very disappointing as the area is...
