CAMPSITE Both months have been quite busy with several ’28 day campers’ staying during that time. One lovely couple came to the campsite particularly to look for somewhere to live in West Dorset or East Devon.

THE CAMPSITE I have ordered all the infrastructure necessary to have Wifi over the whole of the campsite area (including the big field which is used in the summer for 28 days). This is due to be erected in January. Vodaphone was then going to install the necessary equipment (to be operational from January) to […]
