Offering a picturesque and serene outdoor setting for holidays, Martleaves Farm is a beautifully appointed, adult-only campsite located on the Dorset coast between Weymouth and Portland. Set within the mesmerizing Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, this campsite spans 34 acres of breathtaking countryside.

Designated as a site of special scientific interest (SSSI), Martleaves is a haven for nature enthusiasts and bird watchers alike. With its proximity to Chesil Beach and the charming seaside town of Weymouth, as well as the historic site of the 2012 Olympics in Portland, this site provides a unique blend of rural charm and coastal beauty.

One of the standout features of Martleaves Farm Campsite is its welcoming attitude toward various types of campers. Whether you arrive with a touring caravan, motorhome, campervan, or traditional tent, the campsite caters to all, offering short breaks throughout the entire year. The campsite's commitment to inclusivity is further exemplified by its provision for paddleboarding and kayaking in the nearby Fleet Lagoon, allowing campers to bring and use their own equipment for a delightful aquatic experience just 300 meters from the farm.

The diverse array of animals on the farm adds an extra layer of charm to the camping experience. Alpacas, Shetland ponies, horses, pet pigs, free-range chickens, ducks, geese, and sheep contribute to the farm's lively atmosphere. To ensure the safety and harmony of the animals, dogs are required to be kept on leads until away from the farm. Fortunately, there's a convenient footpath leading down to the sea, where dogs can be let off their leads, allowing both campers and their furry companions to enjoy the natural surroundings.

The campsite's facilities are thoughtfully designed to enhance the overall camping experience. Three centrally heated shower and toilet blocks, along with a purple wet room, ensure that campers have access to clean and comfortable amenities. The daily cleaning and replenishing of showers and toilets reflect the campsite's commitment to maintaining high standards of hygiene. For those needing to attend to practical matters, a well-equipped laundry room with a fridge freezer and indoor and outdoor sinks is available. Additionally, a hose on the farmyard facilitates the cleaning of muddy dogs and boots, demonstrating the campsite's attention to detail and camper convenience.

Martleaves Farm goes beyond the typical camping experience by offering farm-fresh products for sale in the farmhouse porch. Campers can indulge in free-range rare breed chicken, bantam, duck, and goose eggs (when available), providing a taste of the local agricultural offerings. The campsite also sells local Dorset Honey and a range of toiletries for campers who may have forgotten essentials, showcasing a commitment to ensuring a comfortable and convenient stay for all.

Disappointed

Newell, Christopher - 28/04/2024

The views are wonderful.Staff are very friendly and helpful but the site shower's and toilet block were clean but far from outstanding. Only found one freshwater tap suitable for a campervan/motorhome and this was some distance from our pitch. There is a regular bus service to Weymouth just 10 minute walk away. We stayed for two nights, and for the price we paid £42 a night I was expecting a lot better facilities.

Response from the owner

28 April 2024

Many thanks for leaving a review. On checking I see you actually paid £41 a night which included electric hook up, showers and your dog. We have three freshwater taps on site clearly marked. We're pleased at least you enjoyed our stunning views!

Expensive for what it is

Wainhouse, Cathy - 13/04/2024

The pitch we booked was being dug up as we arrived and we had to be allocated an alternative. It seems you really are paying for the view and access to Fleet lagoon. The shower block was well maintained and clean but the area around it is very muddy.
