Alan Rogers Review

Ridge Farm is basically a level, grass field with 60 pitches (half of which have electricity). It provides a peaceful ‘back to nature’ retreat in the beautiful Purbeck countryside adjoining a farm. Large trees around the site offer some shade. With its close proximity to the River Frome, coastline and beaches, this is an ideal location for walking, cycling and particularly birdwatching with the Arne RSPB reserve next door. The neighbouring Ridge Wharf Yacht Centre provides the perfect opportunity for boat launching. Within a short drive you’ll find many interesting places to visit including Corfe Castle, Studland Bay and the Jurassic Coast. The Swanage railway goes from Corfe Castle to Swanage often with a steam engine. Bournemouth, Poole and Swanage are nearby for shopping and entertainment. Further afield is Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World and Thomas Hardy’s Cottage.
