East Fleet Farm Touring Park in Chickerell, Weymouth
An introduction to East Fleet Farm Touring Park in Chickerell, Weymouth
Family run in mdist of organic farmland, situated by the sea, caravans, tents and motorhomes welcome.
We would like to invite you to share the beauty of East Fleet with us, as we are sure you will love it here as much as we do. We pride ourselves on offering a unique location on the shores of the Fleet Lagoon, overlooking Chesil Beach and the Sea. The touring park is situated at the heart of our organic farm. We are delighted to have been chosen to receive a gold David Bellamy award for four consecutive years, naming us as one of the most environmentally friendly parks in the UK. You can unwind and relax in the truly peaceful Dorset countryside, yet we are less than 3 miles from the seaside town of Weymouth where you can enjoy a wealth of attractions, entertainment, events and shops, not forgetting the award winning beach.
Situated on the shores of the Fleet, a sheltered lagoon renound for its wildlife, the park enjoys a truly spectacular location. Running along the shoreline at the edge of the park is the World Heritage Jurassic Coast Footpath.
The Fleet lagoon is a slightly tidal stretch of brackish water. It is a nature reserve so swimming, fishing and boating are prohibited, however, it is wonderful to stroll along the shoreline and admire the stunning sunsets.
Our generously spaced pitches are well marked and allocated to allow units up to 6m wide and 8m deep (please call to check availability and pricing if your tent is larger than this).
We have electric hook-ups and basic camping pitches on all areas of the park, seventy of which are gravel hardstandings.
The pitches range from level to gently sloping.
You are never far from a drinking water tap; in fact most of our electric hook up bollards also have shared water taps too.
The Old Barn
The Old Barn family bar opens at Easter for the season, serving evening bar meals and take away. The converted 19th Century building offers a relaxed atmosphere, games room and stunning views over the Fleet Lagoon. Please note that the Old Barn opening hours is limited during low season. Please call to confirm.
We serve local ales brewed by Palmers in Bridport, together with nationally available beers wines and soft drinks.
In the summer of 2008 we opened our new camping store, affectionately known as the "Moopermarket", as it is housed in a converted farm building! We think the builders did a wonderful job of the conversion, and we also think you will agree that it adds a new dimension to East Fleet.
We are specialising in camping accessories and have a massive range of items. From camping and Calor gas to sleeping bags, camping furniture, bbq's and gas cookers, windbreaks, awnings, electrical and water spares as well as kitchen equipment, ground sheets, water carriers, leisure batteries and steps. We even have a few tents and lots of tent poles, pegs and kit.
We also stock all your basic grocery requirements, such as milk, bread, eggs, cereals, newspapers, sweets, ice creams and off license. Along with a range of toys and gifts to keep our younger visitors amused, including outdoor games such as boule and grass darts to play at your pitch.
We have two excellent amenity blocks at East Fleet. In the top field our modern toilet and shower block accommodates high quality ladies and gents facilities. We also have 6 large family shower rooms, each containing shower, sink and wc. The laundry room has washers, dryers, large sinks for hand washing and an iron. Just outside are the continental style covered dishwashing areas and separate chemical toilet disposal facilities.
In our Stable field we have constructed a wonderful new log cabin amenity block, manufactured from sustainable Norwegian pine. This facility offers luxury unisex shower suites, ladies and gents wc's, full disabled shower/wc room (accessible with a Radar key) and indoor dishwashing room. The building has underfloor heating to keep your toes warm on those chilly mornings, built with excellent insulation it stays nice and cool in the heat of the summer too! Please ask on booking regarding the availability of Stable Field and it's amenities. We do tend to close this area when the park is less busy.
