Tranquility personified.

This site is a gem and at £14 a night unbelievable value. Well manicured field set with a superb rural setting. The hedgerows had blackberries and hazelnuts. The birdlife is second to none: Buzzard, swallow and house martins overhead and my bird feeders attracted: Siskin, Marsh Tit, Nuthatch, Coal Tit, Woodpecker, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Sparrow, Blue Tit, Great Tit. Colin has put a tree house in a small copse of fir trees. The owners, Colin and Ann, are attentive to everyone as well as the site which has looked beautiful through our visits this year - a two week stay and a one week stay - the dahlia beds have been stunning. I fail to see how anyone could grade this site at less than five stars as it is the epitome of quality CLs. Yes you could go for a sophisticated site and be parked close together and pay £30 a night but why do you want a communal shower block when your van is fitted out to modern standards. My shower is private and COVID free. Electric posts are first class modern safe Caravan Club standard. Fresh water and chemical points have sanitiser provided. Using the site last year we were grateful for Colin and his tractor as we had risked a late autumn break and needed a tug to move us off pitch. Walking the headland we went past a large commercial site - outfits, tents and caravans jostling for space with neighbours’ BBQ and children prime for you to trip over. Mil House has space and tranquility offering a therapeutic vacation. Incidentally, walking from the site offers many options within naturalistic surroundings. Congratulations to Ann and Colin for this beautiful tranquility.

Really loving site

Wow, what a lovely site. This site is really beautiful. Very well maintained with lovely views. Ann and Colin are really welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Bridport is approx 2.5 miles so a perfect location to visit the area. There is also Mangerton Mill which is not even 5 mins walk away. There is a cafe, craft shops and a lovely lake to walk around. Perfect site for either site seeing or just for getting away from it all. We will be back!

Hidden Gem - Mill House CL

What a find! not to be mistaken for the site next door which is part of a mill and where we thought we had booked (husbands huh!) we had actually booked Mill House CL in Mangerton which turned out to be a very pretty and peaceful site, it was such a delightful find and a haven for tranquility. The owners Ann and Colin were so friendly and welcoming. They visited us each day to collect our recycling and to check that all was well which we really appreciated. The site was filled with beautiful flowers and we were surrounded by trees and hills, as we watched several geese formations flying over us. It is a small site but ample room for everyone. The only fly in the ointment was the neighbouring unit with the obligatory loud voice and done everything and been everywhere chappie. So busy listening to his own voice to notice the beauty of his surroundings. Huge thank you Ann and Colin, we WILL be back!!

Lovely site but better communication needed

I stayed at Mill House CL for three nights from 23/07/20 to 26/07/20. The site is neat and well maintained with pretty flower beds and mature trees and shrubs around the perimeter and views over the surrounding countryside. I received a warm welcome from the owners Anne and Colin and a small typed note that they have suspended general rubbish collection but would collect clean recycling. I asked Colin what I should do with my general rubbish and he suggested I take it to the tip, a round trip of 20 miles. As I was staying in a motorhome and had intended to just walk and cycle from the site I said it wasn't an acceptable solution, neither was the suggestion I keep my rubbish in my van for the duration of my stay in 25+ degrees heat. Anne came over later and said that rubbish collection had been suspended as she didn't want to have to sort it by hand during the Covid-19 pandemic. I have absolutely no problem with them not wanting to do something which made them feel unsafe but I felt a suitable alternative should be readily available. Anne suggested, and I agreed, that I sort my own rubbish into food waste, recycling and general rubbish and put it in their bins by their house next door to the site. This would not be a workable solution if the CL was full. Also, due to Covid-19, the toilet on the CL was closed. Anne apologised that she hadn't told me all this on the phone when I booked. Luckily I have a toilet in my motorhome but many vans and caravans don't so this could have caused a problem to people arriving unaware of the situation. It’s not a problem if CL owners feel they need to change or reduce the facilities advertised as being available but it would be useful if visitors are informed of this when they book so they know the situation and can make any adjustments. I know site owners have fixed overheads which still need to be paid but I feel that a temporary reduction in the fee of £14 per night would be appropriate to reflect that there are fewer facilities available than normal during this period. This is a lovely site with friendly owners and I would recommend it but they just need to make people aware of any changes to what is advertised at the point of booking. It's too late to be told these things when you arrive. Review written by Ayla Forbes, family member, as I stayed there on my own.

Peaceful and pretty

We love Dorset and were lucky to be able to stay at this peaceful little site at short notice on Thursday 8th August Until Sunday10th August. We were about to start an eight day holiday at the also lovely "Highlands end" site in Eype for a week. Unfortunately high winds were forecast for the start of our holiday so we decided to leave a day earlier to miss towing in the strong winds, we also decided to stay an extra night at Mill House until the winds had died down, before we moved on to Eype. Mill house which is a few miles away from Eype were able to give us somewhere safe and protected to hunker down, we didn't even feel the wind there. We loved this pretty little site, the toilet facilities were very clean and fine for a CL, they added to the charm of the place, a big concrete toilet block would spoil it. The Dahlia's in the garden were an added bonus and beautifully kept, there was no farm machinery around. The owners obviously take pride in their CL site, they were warm, friendly and helpful. Thank you for our stay, we will be back.
