Why stay here ...

New for 2018, the Club is delighted to bring Bridport Bingham Grange to the network, located in an idyllic setting overlooking an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in West Dorset. Touring facilities are housed in an attractive honeystone barn at the centre of the site. Here you will find a reception, small shop and individual shower rooms. Touring and camping pitches are landscaped to preserve the natural ambience of the estate. Grange Garden's mature planting provides shelter and privacy and tent visitors will love Valley View field's stunning countryside views and amazing sunsets.

The site is located just 3 miles from Bridport and West Bay, the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. This historic market town has a vibrant mix of town, sea and country life, hosting festivals, carnivals and events throughout the year. West Bay offers stunning landscapes and breathtaking views from its dramatic coastline. It is the perfect base from which to explore west towards Charmouth and Lyme Regis, and east to Dorchester and Weymouth. You will certainly find plenty of things to do in Bridport with fishing trips, leisure centres, golf and cycling, and not forgetting the miles of wonderful walking routes that will allow you to take in the beautiful scenery. You just need to decide what to do first!

2nd visit

My wife and I stayed here between 17-21 May 2019. Stayed here last year when it was privately owned and this year we have noticed how it’s been opened up by the club, by trimming back the trees and hedge rows. We have several friends living locally so this location is ideal for us. The site is very clean and tidy. The wardens are very helpful and friendly. The pitches are a little tight for a caravan, awning and car and the electrics have a low amperage. The toilets were very clean but the design of the blocks are not quite to to the usual caravan club design. There is a licensed bar and restaurant on site, and several pubs serving great food within a few miles. A lovely site which is geared to adults. We didn’t see any children’s recreational facilities. . We will definitely use this site again

A piece of heaven in Dorset

We booked with our friends, both motorhomers, as we’d heard good reports and been recommended. A pleasant welcome down an adequate lane, with passing places, from a lady warden who showed us to our allocated pitch and advised us that we could change if not suitable as there were plenty of free pitches. Such a peaceful, well kept site, with fine views, run by a great team! The facilities are spotlessly clean and varied with loos, showers and ‘bathroom type’ areas plus a bar and restaurant ..... The food was delicious in a friendly atmosphere! A small shop too for necessities! Having been caravanners for over 40 years and recently changing to a motorhome getting about is not so easy, however, the area is so delightful with walks from the rear of the site, towards Bridport or a lovely walk through pretty meadows to Waytown and the Hare and Hounds ...... again fab food and beer! Plus, a bus service, at the top of the entrance lane, runs into Bridport, which was just right for coffee shops, restaurants, a great museum, antique shops and quirky clothes shops! A super few days and we shall definitely be back, soon, I hope! thank you Bingham Grange

Needs much improvement

This is the most expensive club site we’ve ever stayed on and the scenery was lovely but this site will need a lot of work to upgrade to the standard of club sites. The wardens were helpful but were unable to help with fundamental problems. The entrance/exit to the site is inadequate and there is no security barrier. The pitch we were on was still extremely uneven although we were on levelling ramps. We had to be moved from the first pitch we were allocated as the door to the motorhome was obstructed by a low level wooden wall between the pitches. There is only 1 chemical waste point on the site and it was a long way from our pitch which is unacceptable. The electricity is 10amps which is not ideal on a fully serviced pitch. The walks and views were lovely and the staff tried to be helpful but we will not return to this site unless there is an improvement. It was a shame because the surrounding views from our pitch on the perimeter of the site were amazing and you could see that the wardens worked hard to keep the site looking lovely. Incidentally we saw a caravan opposite us struggle to level much like we did and did not quite manage it. I have never submitted a poor review for a club site which are usually of a very good standard but I honestly feel that £32.30 per night is unacceptable given the present standard.

Happy Easter holiday

From the beginning of the holiday to the end of the holiday we had an amazing time. The site remained peaceful and tranquil as it was when an adults only site. It remains tidy, clean and welcoming. The wardens are so friendly and caring and make you feel like one of the family. We were aware that a lot of work had been done behind the scenes with lots more to do in the future. So long as the site holds onto its special atmosphere the Caravan and Motorhome Club are onto a winner. It was nice to see the wardens again from last year who ran a well ordered site. The dog walk is still a place a wonder for humans and dogs and enjoyed 100%. We look forward to coming back in August for our annual peaceful, relaxing, chilling out holiday. Well done guys at Bingham Grange!
