Higher Moor Farm

UK England South West England Dorset Weymouth

Friendly, family-orientated camping in the wonderful setting of the Dorset countryside
What you want to do when you discover a place like Higher Moor Farm is immediately round-up the family, find out who’s next in line for a big celebration, and book a few pitches for one merry, camping getaway. Pooped parents could easily spend a few days relaxing out of sight in the rolling Dorset countryside, feeling on top of the world, whilst the kids burn-off energy playing football or frisbee in the 8-acre grass field.

Located in the village of Nottington (a short drive from the golden sands of Weymouth Bay), Higher Moor Farm lies in a superb spot. At first glance the site may seem a tad commercial, but first impressions can be deceptive. And once you’ve been welcomed by the site manager Daniel (who’s family have farmed here for over 40 years) and explored the surrounding land, your reservations will soon evaporate. The unmarked pitches are level and generous in size, with electric hook-ups available and free Wi-Fi, while modern glamping pods have huge windows that let the outside in and comfortable beds inside.

Dorset has all the credentials for the perfect summer holiday. If the sun’s shining, everyone’s out paddling, playing and rock-pooling. If it rains, the region is well prepared, with aquariums and museums aplenty. With demanding tourists descending to the county in ever-greater numbers, it’s no surprise that many of the campsites have progressed up the evolutionary chain. Higher Moor Farm is one such place. The land must have started life as a scruffy field, but now has developed into a polished, well-organised camping ground with plenty of awards to prove it – including a platinum grade at the ‘Loo of the Year’ awards!

Gradual changes have occurred at Higher Moor Farm over the years. Many of the facilities have been improved and expanded, including the onsite farm shop, which sells a hatful of mouth-watering local produce. The result is a highly-evolved campsite with countryside views and a near-coastal location. For those seeking a more 'rough-and-ready' campsite, you won't have to venture too far up the B3157, but for families seeking a relaxing camping break in a wonderful corner of southern England, Higher Moor Farm is a great choice.

Higher More delivers...

Just back from three days of bliss at Higher More Farm...in my VW Caddy Camper. This site is superbly run with excellent facilities, wonderful views over the rolling hills. Very easy access to Weymouth and surrounding areas. Immaculate facilities...even washing up liquid provided! Good children's play park and well provisioned shop. Only very slight negative is the adjacent huge power pylons and cables which 'sing'...and nothing can be done about that. Pitch your tent/camper well away from the pylons & all will be well.

Highly recommend this site to single campers (me, with my dog), families and the motorhomers.  I will definitely return.
