          Met our friends here and had a very enjoyable weekend. Easy walk into Swanage Town. Good sized pitches. We pitched in 'Laurels' which had water and electric. Good toilet and shower facilities. Could go further by offering recycling facilities.

          The worst place I've ever stayed!! We will not be returning. Toilets are scummy with poo all up the walls. Not what you want with young children. Very rough atmosphere, police were there on Saturday morning.. Nice view and set up! ShameMore

          Hello, we're visiting this site soon and are staying for one week. Does anyone have any advice as to the best field to pitch our tent? We are keen on being near the bar area and noise at night etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. After reading the mixed reviews I'm slightly worried! Thanks
