Alan Rogers Review
A friendly, welcoming, family park, Bagwell Farm is open all year. It is situated between Weymouth and Abbotsbury, close to Chesil Beach. Set in a valley, yet with an attractive open aspect, there are 320 numbered pitches, 280 for touring units, the remainder taken up by seasonal units. All have 10A electricity connections and 34 serviced pitches with hardstanding have a 16A supply. Some of the terraced pitches have beautiful views of Chesil Bank and the sea. In addition there is a traditional camping field where a campers’ shelter is provided. An attractive bar, converted from farm buildings, serves meals.
Steaks are a speciality – the family farm has a herd of Charolais cattle. The bar is open at weekends in mid season and daily in high season. A patio overlooks a good pets’ corner (also open to the public) and there is a fenced play area for children. There is a large dog walking field, with a wealth of wild flowers in summer. Clear instructions on how to reach the coastal path are provided and a list of wildlife seen on the park is kept in reception.
