Higher Moor Farm Campsite is a four-star rated holiday retreat a short distance from the popular seaside town of Weymouth, in the village of Nottington. The park is open from late March to late October, offering serviced pitches for tents, motorhomes, and touring caravans, as well as a Bell Tent available to hire for anyone interested in a glamping experience in Dorset. A small number of hard standing pitches are available at the site.
Higher Moor Farm is set across eight acres of level fields, with every pitch offering beautiful views across the surrounding rolling countryside.
Pets are allowed to stay at this family friendly park, while the facilities available at the site include electric hook ups for a number of pitches, heated toilet and shower blocks, a laundrette, washing up room, chemical waste disposal points, and Wi-Fi internet. There is a dedicated dog walking area on the site, while for children there is a play area and ball games area. The on-site shop at Higher Moor Farm sells a wide range of fresh, local produce, and ensures guests can stay well-stocked with all of their grocery and camping essentials during their stay at the park.
This part of the United Kingdom is famous and popular for its wide selection of outdoor activities, and all of them are accessible from Higher Moor Farm Campsite.
Right on the doorstep of the park is the West Dorset Heritage Coast, which itself forms part of the larger Jurassic Coast, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beaches and cliffs found in this part of the world are incredible, while guests are also encouraged to explore the numerous cave networks that are to be discovered. If guests don’t take a camera down to the coast with them, they’re missing out! The clifftops of the area are wonderful to experience on foot or on a bicycle – bike hire can be organised at the reception at Higher Moor Farm and bikes dropped off for guests at the site – while the seas themselves are relatively calm and ideal whether guests are looking to swim or take a gentle paddle. Driving along the coastline is also great fun, with every town and village found along the coast offering plenty to do and see.
Guests looking to stay closer to the site can easily spend a day exploring Weymouth. A quirky town with a great selection of shops and entertainment venues, combining local, traditional businesses with popular chains and brands, Weymouth offers Weymouth Bay as a beautiful place to explore as well as access to Portland, which hosted the 2012 Olympic sailing events.
The county of Dorset is also well known for its large number of National Trust properties and gardens, while culture lovers will also find plenty of art galleries, museums, and theatres across the county.
If Dorset and the surrounding area doesn’t offer enough, guests also have the option of taking the ferry across to France or one of the Channel Islands for a holiday within a holiday!
