Alan Rogers Review

The entrance to Dornafield leads into the charming old courtyard of a 14th-century farmhouse giving a mellow feeling that is complemented by the warm welcome from the Dewhirst family. It is a haven for those seeking a quiet, restful holiday. There are 119 fully serviced hardstanding pitches (10 amp Europlug) and 16 reasonably level grass pitches for tents in a walled orchard. At the top of the site are large luxury pitches with all facilities, including cleverly concealed TV connections. There are two super, well maintained woodland adventure play areas.

The site is a member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club Affiliated Site Scheme but visitors who are not members of the club are also very welcome.

The reception, shop, tourist information/ecology room have been sympathetically converted from farm outbuildings, with the games room from the old milking parlour, complete with stalls. The rural situation is delightful. A park that is well worth consideration and a member of the Best of British group.
