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!

Will we come back again?

Have just come back from staying at our favourite site, we only stayed 3 nights but can see that things have changed (not for the better). We took into consideration Covid has been a very challenging time for businesses but we found the site was not as polished as we have known it to be. We considered ourselves lucky not to be pitched facing onto the one way track system as it was very evident to see everyone getting covered in dust due to using this very busy one way system. We found the dog walk still a wonderful area for our enjoyment and our dog's. The shower facilities showed signs of being dated and worn in all areas, although they were clean. The peacefulness of the site was amazing due to no children which has always been one of the key plus points of the site. I'm not sure the prices were reflective of the standard of the pitches, I didn't think it was value for money I would like to think that we would come back another time and find the old Bingham Grange back to 100%.

How to spoil a lovely caravan park? I know let the Caravan Club buy it.

We have stayed at Bingham Grange many times over the years. There used to be a lovely restaurant, the club in their wisdom have closed it. There is a shortage of toilets and showers and the club have closed some of them as well (I'm aware of Covid). There are two wonderful family shower/toilet facilities, the club have closed them (I got some remark from a staff member that they are waiting for some parts) they were closed last year when we went there. The unisex showers/toilets always have wet floors, so if you need to sit to do your business you get wet trousers. They clean the blocks in the morning, impossible to have a pee before you leave to go home, was told to use the caravan toilet, but of course it's drained down by leaving time. When I mentioned the closures to a member of staff, I was told not to be grumpy, when in fact I should have had an apology. It will be a long time before I go back there. To have a restaurant on site is a great bonus PLEASE OPEN IT.

2nd visit to Bingham Grange

This is our 2nd visit to Bingham Grange, we really enjoyed the location, wildlife, tranquility & the general layout of the site. 2 great pubs within walking distance ( 25 - 45 minutes) River walks from the campsite in amazing countryside. Just right for a relaxing peaceful holiday. Very quite low key site with good facilities, great for adults.

Lovely site

We have just returned home after spending 9 nights at Bridport Bingham Grange. This was our second long stay at this site in a year. The site is located a few hundred metres from the main road, so has easy access, but far enough away for no traffic noise. The site layout has not yet been updated, so some pitches are not used, as they are too small for modern pitch sizes, so are used for adjacent pitch car parking. When the site is upgraded by the CAMC, I am sure all the pitches will be to a suitable size and also there will be a new toilet block. It would be great if the majority of the existing trees and hedges can be kept. There are some lovely countryside views from the site and a good dog walk and beautiful walks from the site, especially down by the river. The toilets and showers were fine, but not to the standard on most club sites. The site is located a short drive from Bridport and West Bay and we visited both lovely places many times, along with the mostly sandy beach at Charmouth, with it’s famous fossil hunting. We changed our pitch after the first day, as it was very tightly spaced to put up our awning (pitch 37). The wardens, Diane and David were extremely friendly and accommodating, so we moved to pitch 140 on the lower part of the site, which was a lovely spot, looking down the valley towards the woods. The site is not perfect, but it has a lovely character, which is not always evident on all sites, so overall, I rate the site as 9/10.

Exemplar for Future CAMC Sites :-)

CAMC should acquire more sites like this. Individual pitches not in a row in a car park setting like so many that have been 'modernised' recently. We had a serviced pitch allocated due to length of our caravan. The drain was at the exact point the caravan drain was so not faffing with pipes/hoses as on other CAMC sites. Standard 3/4 quiklok hose connector. Hardstanding part was plenty wide enough to put caravan on, with beautiful views across fields and the coast in the distance. We used the sun canopy and air windbreak as it was proper camping weather. Plenty of grass to the side for sitting out on. Car across the front of the pitch giving sufficient room to access/egress. Lots of things to do in the area, We walked up Golden Cap one day. Ice cream and beer on the beach at Seatown. Fish and chips on the harbour at West Bay. Trip to Portland and Weymouth to see the cruise ships.Facilities sufficient given restrictions, we have on board facilities anyway. We liked it so much we've booked October half term.
