We all know that children just love camping - the freedom, the fresh air, the new friends and the informality. Unfortunately I lost interst sometime in my late twenties - once I discovered ensuite bathrooms. But this is camping with a diffierence. The difference being you dont have to give up the comforts of home - namely a comfortable double bed and space to sit and eat -even when its raining - which it inevitably does from time to time in Dorset. That said this isnt the cheapest campsite in the country - but it is the most pleasant that I have ever stayed at.
On top of the facilities, younger campers can help out at calf feeding time or check whether the site's hens have laid enough eggs for breakfast. With personal coaching from Jo its not surprising that kids develop a personal passion for animals and their environment. We had a great time and would say this is just ideal for families with kids aged from 5 to 15 - or adults who want to play too.
