We have just stayed here and cannot fault anything about this site or the staff who run it. Everything is spotless and well tended. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Dornafield. Well Done and keep up the good work we will see you again in the future.

We have just camped in a tent at Dornafield for 2 nights and would not hesitate to return. We had a grass pitch with no electric and the pitches are individually marked and are ample size for the tent and car. The staff here are very friendly and the campsite beautiful. The site is kept impeccably clean and tidy, the... More

Dear Lozza82_30 Thanks so much for leaving such a lovely review on Dornafield. Its not often that campers leave reviews so its great to get your opinion.

I am always a little wary when a site gets wonderful reviews in case it is not as good as the hype. After our first visit I now know that Dornafield really DOES deserve the praise that former reviewers have given. There’s nothing new I can say except to add my opinion that this is an exceptionally clean and well... More

This caravan site offers comfort and peace. The pitches are separated by low hedges, have their own hard standing and many have full service facilities (electricity, water, grey and black waste as well as a dustbin Each dozen or so are in an individual close or cul-de-sac (not an expression the French would use). There are several of the 'closes'... More

Stayed here for the weekend in our motorhome. Really peaceful site, just birds singing and sheep bleeting. Very good toilet and shower block. Good pub just a short walk up the road. Fish and chips on site on the Friday all very good. Would visit again. The owner booked me in and at 84 years young done a great job.

A lovely, family friendly site. We stayed in Orchard Field which was a great choice as we pretty much had the field to ourselves. Everyone else had gone for the hardstanding pitches on Butter meadow or Black rock copse. That was more 'carpark like' in our opinion. We had electric and the grass was cut short, it wasnt wet. Good... More

Dear sdclarke Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review and so please you enjoyed your visit to us. It was lovely weather during your stay but if it rains the demand for all weather goes through the roof hence Dornafield has now mostly all weather and fully serviced pitches.
