          Stayed here this last week-end-good site facilities for a very reasonable outlay. Yes you mind find it basic but it covers what you need. Liked the idea you just 'rock up'-pick your pitch and see the man-if not then ,following morning. Washing/showers/toilets-good & clean. It...More

          We stayed at Acton Field in the late part of October, although quite a risk from a weather perspective, we were extremely lucky. The location is absolutely stunning, great facilities and breath-taking walks. The nearby towns of Langton and Worth Matravers offer great watering holes...More

          Second visit to Acton Fields. You need to be equipped but the site is more than adequate and very clean. Love the fact that you are allowed to just 'get on with it'. We are confused by the pricing BUT it is still cheap and...More

          The facilities are adequate and the location is great, but they have a really erratic pricing structure implemented with bizarre and aggressive behaviour. Small pitches are £8-£12, medium £12-£14 and large are £14-£18. As a couple with two tiny tents we were charged £16, putting...More
