This was our first visit to Acton field campsite, I can honestly say that I loved it! Very laid back owners with super cheap rates. Magnificent views over the jurassic coast and Isle of Wight. On site facilities are basic but well looked after. We'll definitely be coming back.

I have been to this site for years with my family. I love it! The view on a sunny morning of the Isle of Wight and Swanage bay is beautiful. It's restful- sheep bleating, steam train whistling, amazing sunsets and starlight. Noise of happy kids playing out and smells of bbqs and bacon. I have been in tents, trailer tent... More

Don't expect bells and whistles, why would you when you camping?! This campsite is perfectly adequate, it easy going, well run and the owners are really nice. It's cheap and you get what you pay for, people leaving negative review for a £12 a night campsite, need to be ignored. Great views, and a great place to chill out with... More

This was my second time at this site, the first time was a few years ago. Its easy to find, good facilities and cheap. Great views, you can find a flat bit of ground if you look. I really dont expect anymore for the money. My only problems with this campsite is the noise. Yesterday (Saturday night), there were several... More

Just back from 2 nights at Acton Field - proper, back to basics camping. There are no electric hook-ups and owner only takes cash but at just £28 for us, our pitch and the car the value for money is amazing! The proprietor pops round to collect payments each morning and in high season a grocers van comes round too.... More

Easy to find campsite in undulating field that can get pretty crowded (ie full) on a sunny bank holiday. Two showers for men and two for ladies and two sinks for washing up for a couple of hundred campers can get pretty tight, so you must pick your moment carefully otherwise the queue will be long. Cheerful farmer/owner/rent collector who... More

I've stayed here twice over two years in August. It's a busy site but feels well run. The ground is hilly and a bit stony in places so I would bring some hard ground tent pegs as back up. Lot's of kids running around which is how it's meant to be. We camp as a group of friends with different... More

I was amazed at some of the negative reviews of this campsite. It by far one of my favourite campsites so much so we came back three weeks after our first visit. The site is a beautiful rolling meadow which is more rolling than bumpy. There is a loads of room between pitches (there rule is 6m or more) with... More

The website makes this camp site look great however it's very bumpy - there are very few flat areas to pitch tents so it's likely you'll have to make do with a slope! Upon arrival we immediately turned around and searched for another camp site but unfortunately they were all fully booked. Wasn't impressed with the lukewarm showers (that cost... More

If you want a basic, stick your tent up in a field campsite this is for you. There are little outcrops to pitch on and little valleys, it's great and the views over swanage are first rate, as are the stars at night. Facilities again basic but adequate, clean with a few resident spiders here and there but that's camping... More
