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!

No mixed showers please!

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
This was disappointing in some respects. We were allocated our pitch, but we prefer to choose our own. We were on a gravel pitch, which we were concerned about the motorhome getting stuck when we left. The lady on reception was very friendly and welcoming, but the biggest problem with this site is the toilets. There were only 2 female showers, and a similar number of female toilets. There were mixed toilets and showers, but this is not somethingI would be interested in using. In addition, one of the mixed toilet/showers was out of order, leaving 2 at the back of the building, which I would not use. Please note CC, that I don’t believe that this is the way forward for most people, who like privacy when using toilets and showers. In addition, the showers and toilets are not close to the pitches. We had a beautiful walk through the countryside, but the final part was along a very busy road, with no paths. The waste point was also difficult due to its position, as we had to use an additional hose to use it. Apart from the above points, it is a nice site.

Pitch allocation

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Was allocated a grass pitch where the grass was longer than that in the dog walk and when I enquired was told they could cut the grass but had to leave it long to avoid stones damaging units. I arrived on the pitch two hours after the latest departure time and every pitch around me was empty so why had the grass not been cut prior to arrival like every other site. This was particularly annoying as the pitch was allocated to us and we were given no choice of the many available pitches.

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site 2021

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
We found this site to be excellent, the wardens were both friendly and helpful. The facilites were clean and well mainintained. However, we found that there were a few Do's and Dont's which anyone thinking about going to this site need to keep in thire mind. Arriving: If you are coming from the M5 to the site DO NOT put the camp postcode in your Sat Nav whilst still on the motorway, if you do you will be taken through some quaint villages with twisty, hilly narrow roads which is a bit like a ski slalom trying to avoid residents parked cars. I was later told that the best way to get to the site is come off the motorway and head for Axminster, get on the A35 AND THEN put the postcode in. Trips out: DO visit Lyme Regis, this town is not designed for traffic so do nt even think about trying to take your car into the town, there are few car parks in the town and they fill up from about 9 am. However, some one has had a bright idea and (in 2021) they have set up a Park and Ride scheme, DO try this and marvel how thry get a double decker bus round such tgight corners, the bus misses some houses on corners by a matter of inches, not for nervous drivers. Motorhome owners beware Exeter is a good day out but again suitable car parks are few and far between. On Site: DO try the Fish and Chips, cooked to order and delicious, be warned the portions are generous I bought two large fish and chips and we had literally to cut the fish in two to get them on the plate and we had enough chips left over to reheat the next evening and make generous chip butties for two. Overall: I am sorry but I could only give the site 5 star rating it deserves more. Before you go check on the postcodes of major supermarkets and only one or two have fuel stations so it is best to check. Would we go again YES !

Lovely Friendly Site less than 10 minute drive from town and beach

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
What a lovely site this is in Dorset. Easy quick drive to town & beach and local walks near the site. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I would also like to point out how professional they are too. At one point the site power needed to be switched off for just a few minutes. One of the members of the site team walked the whole site advising those who were relaxing by their caravan/Moho that this was about to occur. Amazing service. The site was lovely and clean and yes I have seen the reviews about the facilities and I disagree with some of them as they were more than adequate, yes a little tired but spotlessly clean and great hot powerful showers. I would like to thank the whole team for keeping everything ship shape and Bristol fashion. And for the solute from the team me as we exited the site. Please try to retain this sites character after the refurb which is coming. I loved it and would recommend you book and stay and make your own mind up. That’s what I did and I don’t regret it.

A very charming site

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
We needed a somewhere convenient for visting relatives in tbe area and so not bothered by some of the poor reviews. We were very pleasantly surprised by this charming and atrractive site. Yes it is a little cramped in places but the abundance of beautiful mature trees and hedges makes up for this and lends privacy. The facilities are fine and more than adequate and I felt a little sorry for the warden feeling she had to apologise for the site being "quirky".In my book quirky is good, it would be boring if every site was exactly the same as every other. I agree with other reviewers - don't overdo any upgrade. This site doesnt need more amenities- it's already got them, the beautiful Dorset countrysde and lovely riverside walks. Perfect.
