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.

Expensive for what it is

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.

Martleaves is a lovely welcoming farm campsite. Although it was very wet and windy we had a lovely time.It is lovely seeing the horses and alpacas, the goose and bantam eggs are an added bonus.The ladies showers are very good but my partner said the men's could be a bit better.It is very easy to either walk, cycle or get the bus into Weymouth.We would definitely stay again.Thank you for a lovely stay.

Great location but slightly messy appearance in access areas walking from pitch.

Tidman, Nicola - 02/04/2024

Great location. Weather didn’t help the condition of the ground to get from pitches to the toilet block. Advertised as heated toilet blocks but no heating provided despite the cold wet weather. Blocks could have also done with some kind of matting inside and out to avoid muddy wet shoe marks being walked around inside of the blocks. Felt it was overpriced for facilities but imagine it was location that upped the price.

Pitch with a view

Hallesy, Judy - 25/03/2024

Absolutely fabulous views of Chesil beach. Good location for short bus trip into Weymouth . Bus stop & local shops including a Tesco & a couple of takeaways just 5 mins from campsite. Access to site has been somewhat tidied up although once past site main entrance. there’s still quite a bit of mud & potholes. Quite pricey tariff for an overnight stay but I really think you are paying for the wonderful views. Toilets & shoers ok but personally would prefer hotter water. Our usual walk along the coastal path was challenging to say the least as the walkway & stair access has fallen into disrepair. Would have been useful to have known in advance to allow us to opt for a different route. Campsite could have placed signage to notify campers of the current situation.

We spent 4 nights in our motorhome in the middle of March, with our dog. The weather was very kind to us. Lovely walks, access to the beach, town close by.Site is very clean, easy access for getting in and out, access for services was easy. The site was clean and tidy, big bins for rubbish. Staff were always on hand to help and advise. We were made to feel very welcome by all.Thanks for a great stay, we shall hopefully return later in the year.
