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!

Dog friendly!

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
This site has the best dog walk I have discovered so far. There is a large fenced-in area where dogs can run free, going down the hill through woodland to a small river and there is a wide mown path for when it is raining. It stretches along two sides of the site, and takes about 20 minutes to complete - so retrace your steps and even a spaniel would call that a good stretch. The staff are very friendly, and a courtesy phone call from reception just before the office closed meant that even though I was arriving late, I knew what to do when I did arrive and they knew I was on my way.

Pros and cons

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Firstly, if you turn up here and expect a stereotype club site, forget it. This site is a hybrid,the organisation, management of site and housekeeping definitely club standard. The facilities whist adequate and clean club standard they are not. Whilst we had an excellent pitch I did note that some pitches could be a challenge size wise. The EHU's need upgrading The wardens where some of the friendliest we've met, cheerful despite the obvious challenges they have with the site. I am sure with some investment, particularly the washing facilities and pitch reorganising, this would become one of the best sites in the clubs portfolio.

Lovely site

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
I really enjoyed staying on this site. Beautiful location. Yes the facilities are dated and could do with updating but they did the job. An extra chemical waste would be good.. one for the site just isn’t enough. Wardens very friendly, well kept site, my pitch felt quite private. Pitches are allocated which made life so much easier when I arrived late on. I asked if it was possible to swap a pitch at the time, warden was open to it but advised that the pitch they’d put me on was a good one… and she was right! Glad I didn’t swap ☺️

Don't let the loo spoil things

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Stayed here for two weeks holiday and really enjoyed it. Yes the toilet facilities are a let down but we had no problem accessing them at any time or their cleanliness as the wardens frequently inspected them and were seen to sanitise them. A big problem was that people didn't use the banding system properly,not putting a band on the hook on entering or not removing it on exit! For me that was the only negative of the site. There is a passing place on the access road so not a problem there either. Most of the wardens were excellent in their attitude and carrying out their jobs,just one lady warden seemed a bit grumpy but maybe not a surprise in what and who they deal with! The site is well place to visit Somerset,Dorset and Devon. We visited Weymouth and took the coast road from Bridport to enjoy one of the best views in Britain looking towards Portland and the Fleet lagoon. The donkey sanctuary at Sidmouth is well worth a visit as is the tramway at Seaton,as well as the beaches at both too.Beer is another lovely seaside town. Plenty of things to do and see. We ate at many establishments but the best was Dexter's in Beaminster,good food, service and we'll priced. No traffic noise on site and lovely walks too. A very enjoyable stay for us and we will be back.

so disappointing!!!!

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Perfect location surrounded by wonderful countryside - and there the compliments end. The site is tired and past it's best and even accepting all the restrictions posed by Covid is not the usual club standard. The pitches are small, tight and obviously previously belonged to a non caring, for profit organisation. Pitch 40 is an absolute disaster with it's overgrown hedging/nettles/brambles creating added difficulties when filling/emptying water. The showers should be replaced as the water spray heads drench everything within the room. Vehicles have to park across the front of pitches creating a claustrophobic feeling. Closing unisex shower/toilet rooms due to lack of staff is not a solution to an already existing problem as it must be easier to reduce the number of site occupants. Fortunately, we only stayed 5 nights and will not return as this site vies for bottom place on the club network.
