Overall, this is a good site in a pleasant rural location with walks "from the door". The tent pitches were large and well separated via shrubs/hedges, although the caravan / motor home ones didn't look quite so spacious. It's very well maintained, and the facilities are very clean. In addition to the usual Men's/Women's toilet/shower/basin rooms and (I think) 4 individual rooms with toilet, shower and washbasin they have 2 'super loos' which boast the latter but have nice stone cladding on the walls. OK, this may have won them West Dorset Toilet of the Year or whatever, but I'm not sure it's a very sensible use of the available space (after all, you can only use the toilet, basin and shower simultaneously if you're very athletic). These de luxe loos were almost always occupied (even at 7.00 a.m.), so they can be rather irrelevant to the unlucky masses.
Tent pitches are a fair distance from the facilities (which are at the top of the site), and it would help to have rubbish bins down there too. Didn't try the restaurant, partly because the menu looked very unadventurous and possibly out of the freezer (lasagne and all the usual suspects).
There were a surprising number of vacant pitches (mainly tent ones) considering it was August and high season. I think the main reason must be the price - £26 a night for a pitch with electricity is pretty steep.
