“Traditional Fabulous Family Camping”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Higher Moor Farm campsite is a compact family run site that is situated in a quite country lane. This site is ideal for families and individuals alike. The site could accommodate, tents caravans and campers. We went at the end of the season and on arrival found that we could choose our own pitch from those available. We found It was an ideal weekend stop for us to cycle and enjoy the surrounding lanes. The site was just one and half miles from the main road where regular buses can transport you to either Dorchester or Weymouth. Higher Moor has excellent facilities which are kept spotless. The showers each morning were lovely and hot and made starting each day a pleasure to use. We found having our own water with the electric hook up very handy and this made life very easy. There was also a very well stocked shop on site, were the staff were very helpful. Higher Moor came highly recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed in their description of the site. Overall it was a Fabulous Camp site and one we would recommend to others and definitely visit again ourselves.

My partner and I stayed at Higher Moor Farm for a few nights nearing the end of the season and, regardless of the slightly miserable weather for the first couple of days, had a lovely break.
The ablutions were nice and clean (were they new?!) and the facilities plenty for what we needed. The site itself was nice and well-kept and it was nice to see the rabbits around in the evening. The pylons were slightly annoying but due to the time of the year there were not many campers there so it was just a matter of moving down a couple of pitches to get away from the buzzing.
We would definitely return next time we come to the area. Thank for you a great stay.

This was our first, and will not be the last, visit to the site. We received a very professional welcome; Daniel could not have done more to make us feel welcome. We were able to pitch where we liked and this meant that the caravan and awning could be placed for the best weather effect and TV reception. The provision of a water tap for each pitch was very handy. Both ladies' and gents' toilets and showers were immaculate. Daily papers are available to order, and the shop is well stocked. The site is only a couple of miles from one of our favourite supermarkets and also only a short distance more from the sea front of Weymouth.

Excellent site within its 1st season, peaceful(although we visited outside of school holidays period), conveniently placed for visiting local beaches and sites, the site is very well maintained, good value for money, staff make you feel very welcome.
Outstanding facilities-clean, hot showers. Children's play area
Well stocked shop for -tasted local bread(which made the best toast we had tasted for a long time)
Other reviews mention the pylons- to be honest they didn't cause us a problem

We spent a two nights here in peak season, and it was great. Peaceful, great atmosphere, friendly staff, clean facilities and the kids loved the freedom of the site. Handy little shop on site, and while we were there, they had a local business cooking up pizzas in the back of the horse box - neat. I would also say that this site is very good value for money, and nicely located, only a short drive into Weymouth for a day at the beach. Note - lowered vehicles - the road in from Weymouth (along Nottington lane) has loads of sleeping policemen - worth the sccraaape and I would certainly book stay there again!

If only we could have stayed longer! The site was busy, but didn't feel crowded. Showers and loos were clean - nice to have free showers which were actually hot! As an early riser I had no problem with queues, but it did seem rather busy later in the day. Our pitch was at the top of the site so we looked over the site to the beautiful countryside. Like another reviewer we were aware of the buzz from the pylons, but there's nothing the owners can do about that, and given our next site was on the flightpath to Gatwick, it was a positive oasis of calm in comparison! The owners were very friendly and helpful - they even patiently and politely listened to my son rabbiting on.... Speaking of rabbits, should you need to 'go' during the night, they are cheerfully hopping around doing rabbit stuff - good job my dogs didn't come with us! All in all a great stay, and we will be back.

I feel quite bad mentioning this because the owners and facilities were so good but there are massive great pylons right next to the camp site, you can hear them buzzing. I don't know if I would book again because of this, but then I really don't like pylons. Other than that everything else was perfect. Clean hot showers that you can stay in as long as you want, well stocked shop, really helpful owners. They let me leave my car there the whole day on the day we left, so we packed up, when off for the day and came back for the car later.

Many thanks for your kind review. The pylons are regrettably in the adjacent field and i am sorry to read they had an impact on your holiday. The vast majority of our customers tell us that they have no impact on them but I can understand how you feel. Once again thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.
