Tom's Field (Dorset)
A short walk from the South West Coast Path and the great swimming spot at Dancing Ledge, and close to the pubs in Langton Matravers, is Tom’s Field. The site actually spreads across several semi-walled off areas, so you can find secluded nooks, or camp in the more open areas. There’s a well-stocked shop and decent shower block. No reservations are accepted except for long stays, so turn up early to bag a good pitch.

Tom's is top
Lovely peaceful campsite set amongst low stone walls and trees, with a small shop and a kiosk that does cooked breakfasts at weekends, or just a bowl of rice crispies if that's what you fancy. Very safe for young children who can charge about the fields chasing the many bunnies that call this home. Wake in the mornings to the sound of sheep bleating and cows mooing, and a skylark or two if you're lucky. A breathtaking location from where you can walk to the stunning coast cliffs. Although the swimming pool at Dancing Ledge was blasted out of the rocks for that very purpose, you're more likely to see coast-eering people in westuits and helmets than anyone in a cossie swimming gentle lengths.
