In reply to CLyus: I have never been there but it looks OK on the website. As for public transport, easy though a little time consuming. The First Group website will have all the times. Buses 2 and 10 run along the main road just east of the site, seven days a week until late evening. Bus 1 runs from Weymouth to Portland very frequently, again until late evening. Once on Portland itself you are within walking distance of everywhere (Easton village for the Cuttings, Courtlands for Blacknor and battleship, Southwell for Wallsend, Godnor). I expect they do some weekly tickets to avoid paying each journey.

In reply to CLyus: You'd be much better off staying at the campsite near Portland Bill than in Weymouth. I live on Portland and the public transport can be pretty bad. I think where higher moor farm is you would have to get two buses, which probably will take you around 90 minutes to get to Portland all in all. Even if they are on time they are very slow.

It didn't have one tent on it, 2 or 3 caravans.

No showers was probably the biggest problem.

Undoubtedly more Ecoendive than camping, but seems ok considering there is a lounge, showers and cooking facilities. We're trying it out in August.
