I’ve not posted a full review since the Polar V800 (although there’s one coming soon) as I’ve been working on publicising TriedOnline and taking a little summer break. This is just a short post about my travels and the very unique Eweleaze Farm.
After such a positive experience at this amazing campsite I couldn’t help but write a little review. I’ll run through a few images to introduce you to Eweleaze and (for the benefit if some of the international followers) some of the amazing sights on offer in Dorset, UK.
Eweleaze Farm is situated in the village of Osmington, just a few miles outside of Weymouth, Dorset. After being greeted by this sign you’ll tackle one of the attractions only downfalls, which is a rather long and very bumpy drive down from the main road to the farm. Once negotiated, however, you’ll be greeted with stunning views and your introduction to a truly eco-friendly and organic holiday experience.
Above and below are just some of the views on offer from within many camping fields available to choose from. You are not restricted to a set pitch and, so long as there is space alongside other campers, you can mark out your territory for either yourself or a whole group of tents and/or campervans. Some fields will permit a vehicle next to your tent while others (like the one above) will require moving your car an adjacent parking area.
At aproximately 300 acres there’s no lack space. The farm evan boasts its own beach complete with a temporary jetty, giving the ideal platform for splashing in the sea or (in my case) some decent open water swimming.
Eweleaze takes its eco-credentials extremely seriously throughout the entire campsite. Above, recycled shipping containers have been converted to accommodate solar-powered showering facilities.
These two little sheds are actually… a’hem… the toilet facilities. You’ll find them dotted around the site. It’s surprising how effective and odour free a compost lavatory can be!
The organic experience is continued throughout the site, which remains a working farm. Being a temporary campsite, it’s open only for 4 weeks during the UK’s school summer holiday period.
It’s very much a family venue with plenty of areas to keep children happy. There’s a lively farmyard with an array of shops and eateries all selling home-made and locally produced organic foods. Campfires are permitted; they’ll even supply you with the firewood!
There are many walks available along the Jurassic Coast. Above is just a mile outside of the campsite looking back towards Weymouth. The bay directly ahead was the venue for the sailing in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Venture a little further afield and you’ll find a host of other attractions including the stunning Chisel Beach. This view was taken from the neighbouring Isle of Portland.
In addition to some very valuable family time, the camping holiday gave me the opportunity to test the latest product to be featured on TriedOnline.
Here’s an image of the TomTom Multi-sport Cardio. This was a perfect product to test on holiday as it has the ability to detect heart rate direct from the wrist unit, without the need for a heart rate strap. It was the perfect device to just get out there and run in some beautiful surroundings. Click here for the full review.
