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!

Excellent site

We have just returned from Bingham Grange and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the site. Despite some work being carried out this did not make any difference as the work being done will only make will be beneficial to the site. The wardens were excellent, polite and very helpful. The Buzzard Bar serves very good food, well cooked and good value. We will definitely return.

Under standard

I am sure work is underway in the re design of this site, the possibilities are there. Some work seems to be underway as our pitch was quite near where the digger started work at 9 am both days we were there, a quite retreat from my wife's recent illness, hence the poor rating for peace and quite. Maybe a pre warning would have been good. I am a great fan of the Clubs standards (that's why I'm a member) so I cannot recommend this site just yet, the outside dish wash area left a lot to be desired, the toilet block needs to reflect the Club's other sites facilities. On the plus side, the site is excellently placed for visiting the Dorset coast, the warden I spoke to was of the expected quality and the cleanliness was good. I think this is my first negative review of a Club site !

Work in progress

I agree with previous reviews in that this site is not yet up to the high standards we are used to at other club sites. That said I have no doubt that this site will be an asset to the club when the work has been done and become a very popular site. It is in a quiet rural location but within five minutes drive of Bridport and the harbour at West Bay. It is also well situated for visits to Weymouth, Lyme Regis and many other of Dorsets attractions. Some of the pitches are small and could present a challenge with a large outfit. (How did we manage before movers came along) and in my humble opinion the pitches are poorly arranged. There is not the usual one way system on site so extra care is needed. I agree the gravel used on pitches is too fine but did not present any problems other than the jockey wheel tended to dig in. We thought the bar and restaurant was a good addition. We would like to see more sites with these facilities although I know many will disagree. There is no club wifi on site, again each to their own but in the 21st century all members should have access to good wifi. I know many people like to escape all things techno but remember you don't have to use it. The toilet and shower facilities are not club standard, but were up to the usual high standard of cleanliness I presume an update and rethink of these facilities will be high on the to do list. All things considered we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to others. I think the wardens on site deserve a mention in that they have been placed in a very challenging situation on a new site that is not yet quite up to standard. They were all very friendly and helpful and deserve a gold star. One final footnote the dog walk is one of the largest and best I have come accross.

Spoilt Peace and Quiet

We first stayed at the site in June and were so impressed with the peace and quiet, that we went back in August. Everything would have been fine if it hadn't been for people using pitches 75 and 103, who had obviously come together. they were loud and had no respect or regard for others on site. The wardens also had to speak to those on pitch 103 a couple of times re Health & Safety issues of having windbreaks completely around their tent, but they took no notice. Our quiet get away was therefore spoilt. Not sure now if we will ever return to this site. We were also disappointed that for the second time a pitch was allocated by the wardens, so we had no choice of pitch as we do at other CMC sites.

Dog friendly camping site

We came at one of the hotest weeks of the summer and requested a shady pitch for the comfort of the dogs. The site was excellent with trees for cover and secluded. There was a dog walk close by which had chippings and shade from the trees overhead and another walk which was grassy. As our motorhome was new to us we had a few teething problems and the wardens were more than ready to help in any way they could and always found time for us. The showers and toilets were always spotlessly clean and tidy also the washing up area was always clean and we saw no rubbish around. We will definitely come back in the future. THANK YOU TO THE STAFF
