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. You just need to decide what to do first!

Pleasant site

We were a little disappointed when we first arrived, as the site is not quite up to the usual standard of the Caravan Club sites, however we understand the Caravan Club has only had this site for 2 years. We stayed for two nights in October, and I must say the site definitely grew on us while we were there and we really enjoyed our stay. Shame they charge extra for the WiFi as we had only recently paid for a year of WiFi, but that doesn't count here. One tip, do not arrived early as you will not be allowed into until 12.00. We got there half an hour early but had to sit and wait in the car. Looking forward to staying here again.

Friendly and welcoming Staff, But Pitches Maybe a Challenge for Larger Caravans

This was our first visit to the Bridport Bingham site. The site is compact, but this also means it's quiet and peaceful. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and they made us feel welcome. If you love walking and the outdoors, there's lots to do. The beach at West Bay is stone's throw from the site. If you prefer town life, then there is Dorchester 15-20 minutes down the road. The only word of caution is that if you have a large outfit like we have (28ft x 8ft), you may struggle to get your caravan onto the available pitches during peak times. We have a Bailey Grande Turin and a hefty 4x4 to tow it, so getting both onto the pitch during a time when the site was relatively quiet proved a challenge (without motor movers). There are also limited pitches that would be able to house both your caravan and towing vehicle. With that said, we loved the site and we will definitely return again next year!

Grumpy gran's thoughts

A real find. We really enjoyed this site on a short stay at the end of October, even though he weather was very mixed. No problems if you don the waterproofs. Pros: Very friendly and approachable wardens; Lots of walks straight from site; Also close to Bridport,West Bay and the coast; Quiet and peaceful; Trees and hedges improve the appearance of the site and avoid long uniform arrays of vans; Cons: Pitches are allocated due to differences in size - OK for us on this occasion as we were happy with our pitch, and we have a small van; However, some vans are really too big for the site. Opposite us a member with a monster RV vehicle chose to drive over and churn up the grass on our pitch causing ruts; We are grandparents but don't see why we have to put up with other people's children coming from pitches on other parts of the site and skidding down the hills on their bikes and riding at way over 5mph. It's dangerous for them as they could not stop if they came across an outfit as well as being annoying. Nevertheless we are looking at when we can return in 2021. Understand from the warden that some limited alterations/refurbishment may take place over the closed season. All of us just need to remember to behave responsibly and show consideration for fellow members.

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.
