My daughter is on her way back from there today and stayed at http://www.nordenfarm.com/.

Whilst not exactly on the beach, they have been able to pop on the bus which stops outside the site and passes hourly and they have visited Swanage, Lulworth Cove, Poole and loads of lovely places. It is just about a mile from Corfe Castle.

Sounds good, that....... Noted for future reference

We're off to camp at higher moor farm outside Weymouth (when I eventually get back from Singapore) as we are having the Osprey class national championships there over next weekend. Trying to make it a good time but can't sail at the moment due to a nerve problem. Instead, one of the country's top dinghy sailors is using it so should be a top 3 result. Receiving a lot of good natured abuse from the rest of the fleet about it, though, which will cost a fair amount of beer in the bar to placate them - mercenary lot. but clearly easily bought.

Would rather be sailing.......

Ok for a few days which is what we used it for. Easy bus access to Weymouth and the top of Portland. http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/de...sp?revid=11642
