Why stay here ...

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.

Situated 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 caravan site in Dorset 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.

Excellent site

We stayed mid October on a serviced pitch and had a wonderfully relaxing stay. Pitch was allocated on arrival, but we were very happy with it; it had well defined edges but plenty large enough to erect awning. Hard standing however extremely difficult to get pegs in, even with a hammer drill. Cars are mostly parked in front of van, but there is plenty of room. As the site is terraced, with hedges and small trees, the views were great and it felt quite private. As we are still shielding as best as we can, we used our own facilities. Elsan point was spotless. We don’t have a dog, but enjoyed going round the dog walk, through woodland, down to a river and across fields. Didn’t meet a soul, so definitely not crowded and enjoyable for non-dog people. The site is close to all the Jurassic coast beaches, 20 minutes to our favourite in Charmouth. A lovely time to visit, not crowded at all, neither on the beaches nor on site. Staff friendly and helpful, we were allowed a late checkout, too. My partner says next time he’ll try an 18V SDS drill for the pegs!

Peaceful site in beautiful countryside

We stayed here mid October when the site was less than half full and it was glorious. The facilities (some a little outdated) were spotlessly clean, abundant hot water and no queues, indeed very few others around at all. Most people seem to use their own facilities. The best dog walk we have ever come across on a site, beautiful off lead, fenced walk through trees and down to a river. There are also many other farmland walks linking into the site and it's possible to walk to Bridport too. Excellent, safe walking. Pitches are level, the whole site is slightly terraced. Be careful with choice of site as some are in constant shade while others get sun all day and also great views. Serviced pitches have the best sun and views as a rule but they seemed a little 'crowded' compared to the other sites. Reception had allocated a site on arrival but we swapped to a more suitable one easily, after all we're paying for it. Friendly, helpful staff, near drive to many coastal walks and beaches. Lovely overall, would definitely go again.

Pleasant October break

We stayed for a week in mid October, we had one day of rain , the rest of the week was cold, clear with lots of sunshine. We were welcomed by friendly and helpful wardens. Although this isn’t a typical CMC site that doesn’t detract from anything. The plots are allocated and we had a fully serviced pitch which was excellent. Our car was parked in front of the caravan, but as we don’t sit for hours and hours in the caravan this didn’t bother us, in fact we saw some amazing sunsets when we did sit in the caravan. The toilet facilities are also different from typical club sites, some ‘ private’ bathrooms and unisex. As most of our caravanning is, in normal years , in France we were not concerned by this. There is a very good dog walk, with access to a river which our dog loved! The recycling/ rubbish was central, ( on our part of the site) this meant that the wardens didn’t have to drive around and walked around so we could chat as they walked by our caravan. My only criticism and this applies to all CMC sites, is that WiFi isn’t included in the cost of the stay and has to be paid for separately. Incidentally on this site it wasn’t the standard Club WiFi. As most people these days use WiFi on a daily basis and younger members ‘live’ on their phones/tablets / iPads surely the Club should now be including this in the cost of the stay. Would definitely stay again

good location for visiting Dorset

We recently stayed at this site, and found it very pleasant. We visited most of the AONB, including Golden Cap, Charmouth, Lyme Regis, and lots of other beautiful places.The dog walk is fantastic, we wish other sites had the same, plenty of routes to give our dog variety whilst staying for 6 nights. Liked the little hedges between some pitches, it made it feel quite private. We found the instructions to the site easy to follow, although some reviews, prior to our booking, made it sound complicated. It was not. Google street view if unsure. Toilet facilities were clean, didn’t like the fact they were unisex, but it’s not a problem, as the block near reception are individual cubicles. We have our own bathroom in the caravan, and I’m sure most caravans and motor homes do as well, so I’m perplexed as to why a lot of people feel the need to use the sites showers, and expect a full spa experience, when they could use their own facilities. We only use site toilets for the one thing most of us do once a day, for everything else, we use our own bathroom. And with Covid restrictions, we are encouraged by the club, to use our own facilities. Pitch sizes adequate, our 27 feet long, 8 feet wide Swift fitted no problem, with our pick up of 17 and a half feet, fitting nicely in front of the caravan. The movers worked on the gravel, and the pitch we were on was up an incline. All in all a conveniently placed site for visiting Dorset, and we will return.
