Church Farm Campsite is a quiet, family owned campsite run by proprietor Steve Judd, his partner Lee Moneypenny and from 2009, his eldest daughter Louisa Judd. We are situated in a village called Sixpenny Handley, which is in the heart of the Cranborne Chase. We are the gateway to the Chase and West Wiltshire Downs, an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". The site is on an arable farm, surrounded by glorious countryside. We extend a friendly welcome to Caravans, Motorhomes, Tents and Trailer Tents alike. The site is located within 300m of the Village High Street. There are a variety of shops, including General Stores/Newsagents, Butchers, Post Office, Gift Shop and also a Public House.

From the moment we arrived at 4.30pm through until 10pm we had a lovely time.
This was until site management allowed campers on to the site at 10.15pm to set up camp beside us.
Surely, there must be a latest time that people are allowed on to the site to set up.
This was then followed by a celebratory barbecue with drinks, car lights being used as a lantern (with regular 5 minute bursts of car engine so battery didn't go flat), and loud talking and laughing through until 2.30am.
This is despite us talking to them twice and site management talking to them once. We did hear site management talk to them, and it was far from stern enough. They were already the type of group to ignore the softly softly approach.
We've never been so angry, frustrated, upset and helpless trying to get to sleep.
And the church bells??? How have site management not petitioned the church to turn them off at night? They chime on the hour every hour for the number of chimes the hour is. We were right underneath the clock tower and it's impossible to sleep through them. I've never known such a ridiculous situation.
I'm sure the man on the desk is used to the bells, but saying "they'll only go off once at 1am" is probably not the best response to someone that has only come to see him at 12.45 due to a rowdy group his management has let on to the site.
In short, our weekend was ruined.
Two emails to site management to request a refund have been ignored.
Very very unimpressed.
Would never return, or recommend to anyone.

There's a brand new barn restaurant at Church Farm and prices are amazingly low, just right when the weather's not great - like this year! We liked the eco-friendly toilet facilities, too... though it was so quiet when we visited midweek that we could talk to each other from the Ladies to the Gents! We stayed for two nights and found the owners extremely friendly and helpful, despite it being a working farm.
