This is the third or fourth time we have visited this site. Don't ever check out early on a Sunday, stay and have the roast dinner, it's fantastic. It is great for groups and cater for all types. We will definitely be back several more times this year.

This lovely campsite is based just minutes away from Swanage town centre and beach. What a lovely place to be over Christmas, we had lots of wintery walks on the beachfront. We stayed in one of Log cabins (Can't remember the name) but it had a great big hot tub on the decking , were us and the kids would...

We stayed with our family in December for a pre Christmas break and were delighted at the really kind and helpful staff on arrival. The Log Cabin was extremely Clean and the fresh bedding smelt lovely! Very cosy! And a 'home from home' feel about it... well worth coming back for another weekend stay in May!

We had a cracking weekend stay at Herston. The staff were super friendly and the shower facilities were clean and hot!. Its not far from Swanage so is well located should you need to pop into town. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the sea too. We will be coming back in the camper to stay again!

This was booked by a family member for my mums 60th. Log cabin was very spacious and had everything we needed for our few days. We enjoyed the hot tub even for this time of year. I think it would be nice to return with my family during the summer. I brought my 5 month old son for his first...

The website makes this place look really nice. Out of season, the campsite is very dreary. Numerous battered caravans standing in long grass. The toilet/shower block were poorly maintained and VERY cold. On the plus side, this place is ideally situated as a base to explore the isle of purbeck.

Went here for one night and was very pleased with what I found. The 'sea view' is a little optimistic but a small patch of water can be seen if you stand in the right place. Facilities are decent, and it's good to have a bar and other conveniences available. I would imagine it gets pretty full in the height...

This was a return visit for us this year. Staff were helpful and friendly. We camped near the usual showers and then on the last morning discovered the new showers!. They are brilliant you have basically got your own private bathroom and endless hot water. Would like to point out that these are free! (no hassle of buying tokens) We...
