Frequently Asked Questions


Below is a list of questions we are regularly asked. If you can’t find the answer to your query, please either give us a call or send us a message via our contact page.

Our wifi is available throughout the park, so you should be able to get online right at your pitch.
We have now installed our own wifi system allowing us to restructure the pricing, making it cheaper to get online. The new system is however on a per device basis, so you require one voucher per device you wish to use.
The voucher prices are as follows:

1 Day £2.00
3 Days £5.00
7 Days £10.00
1 Season £50.00

We will always do our best to accommodate you in your favourite area, but we can not ever guarantee any specific pitch numbers will be available.
Pitches are available from 11am on arrival day. Reception is generally open until 7pm. When ‘The Old Barn’ is open, the latest time you can arrive is 9.30pm, so please make sure you are here by then. Barriers secure the park and you will not be able to gain access without your entrance pin code. Unfortunately we do not have room to accommodate late or very early arrivals. We only have limited space outside the reception, so please do not arrive before 11am.
During the shoulder season this is usually no problem. We just ask for a donation in our charity box. Please enquire at reception. During peak times it is more difficult to accommodate late departures if the pitch is booked for the next arrival. Although you may be able to park your tent or caravan in another spot for the day. Please check with reception.
CANCELLATION ARRANGEMENTS
  • Once you have made your booking and paid an initial payment of £50 per week booked, the price of the holiday will not be subject to any change unless extra people or facilities (as agreed in advance of arrival with East Fleet Farm Touring Park) not advised at time of booking are required.
  • If you are not happy with any aspect of your booking, cancellation can be made within 7 days of the booking being made for a full refund of your initial payment**. After this time the initial payment becomes non-refundable for whatever reason. However if you give us reasonable notice of cancellation, we may be able to hold your initial payment for use against a future stay with us within the same season as the original booking.
** If your holiday is due to commence within 7 days of booking then your initial payment is non-refundable at any stage.
We are on the shores of the Fleet Lagoon, and although there are great walks and stunning views from the park - the shoreline is not suitable for swimming as it is similar to an estuary. The nearest safe sandy beach is Weymouth which is 3 miles away.
Sorry but our farmyard area is a fully working farm and not set up for visitors. There are always plenty of animals around in the nearby fields. Chickens are up by the farm houses and if you listen really hard you might hear Bert and George - our resident donkeys.
Yes, there are freezers located in our Play Barn for freezing ice blocks. (Please note that there is no charge for this and they are left at your own risk). Please don’t fill bottles with water or put fish or any other foodstuff in these freezers as it stops everything else from freezing.
Sadly the bus company that ran the service from the campsite has decided to discontinue this service as it has been economically unviable, even with the subsidy which East Fleet have paid them over the last few years. The village bus runs every 20 mins Monday - Friday, and hourly at weekends from the end of our lane (1/2 mile). A taxi into Weymouth is approximately £8. We recommend the Park and Ride which is at Mount Pleasant and costs £3.50 all day including up to 6 people for the bus.
Yes, all the pitches are numbered and allocated with plenty of space for parking and bbq’s etc.
Generally we only accept bookings for one family in each unit. This is because whilst your tent or caravan may sleep 8 - 10 people or more, we have found from past experience that it can cause problems if the weather turns bad and you are all cooped up in a confined space.
Yes, that is fine. We will accept a party of up to 3 families together. It is easier for us if the pitches are all booked under one name so that we can make sure we keep the bookings together.
Yes, Please see our doggie page for canine information. Cats and other pets are most welcome too. We have had a wide variety of pets stay with us in the past - tortoise, guinea pigs, rabbits - even a skunk and an owl. Just make sure you bring adequate security for them as we would hate them to become the local foxes next dinner.
Sorry but due to safety reasons and also the fact that the smoke from open fires may annoy other campers, we do not allow fires of any kind. You may use a proper barbecues for cooking purposes, however these must be let to go out and not topped up with sticks or wood etc after you have finished cooking.
Our shop can swap bottles for you, or you can purchase new bottles from us. We also stock small disposable cartridges for camping stoves.
Following the success of our ‘Festival Foods’ in 2014 and 2015, we have decided to stop offering our own bar meals. However we do have some exciting food choices from local vendors again this year. Portland Pizza Company with their wood fired pizza oven and Bennetts award winning Fish and Chips will be returning, together with new offerings to be confirmed. You are also most welcome to order a takeaway to be delivered to the bar. We will give you plates and knives and forks, and even do the washing up for you!!
Yes! We have just completed our new baby and toddler bathroom. It has a small bath with shower head too at waist height to make it easier to clean your little ones. Also in the room is a large work surface to read out your clean clothes etc and a pull down baby changing unit.
Good question, Can I look into that and get back to you?
