Not up to scratch

We booked the site at the last minute due to being released from lockdown so we were grateful to get in anywhere however this site definitely needs work. The COVID protocols put in place worked very well, if you were to use the sanitary facilities you placed a wrist band on a hook to signify the facility was in use and removed it afterwards, it seemed to work well. However there are quite a few areas that do need attention, the pitches are very cramped meaning you have to park your vehicle in front of the caravan and awning, something that always seems to exacerbate the cramped feeling. The access roads are also very tight, we saw at least two units scraping hedges in an effort to avoid scraping other vehicles. There was also a distinct wafting of sewage aroma at certain times of day which made sitting outside less than pleasant! Finally, as a previous reviewer mentioned, the signage when approaching the site from either direction, was not visible until you are on top of the entrance, less than ideal. The site has potential to be really good but it will need a lot of work over several years to bring it up to the usual CAMC standards and for that reason we won’t be revisiting any time soon.

Charming and peaceful site

First time staying at a C&MC site and it was excellent. The site is charming and peaceful, the hedging breaks up the site nicely, the dog walks available on site and nearby were tranquil and convenient. The Covid restrictions weren’t too oppressive and the staff were both friendly and efficient. The toilet and shower facilities were fine and my only concern would be that after reading some of the negative reviews about club standards, I am left hoping the current charm and character of this site isn’t lost in standardisation changes.

First timer

Ok so I am first timer at a CC site and I thought it was lovely. My only thought would be, they should make the toilets/showers ladies/men. Yep keep them Covid safe but go back to having seperate mens and ladies. Otherwise everyone was super friendly and helpful for this first timer, I was only here for a 3 nights so didnt need a big pitch but totally understand if you were here for a week or more why you would want a bigger pitch. Having said that, everything was very clean. Super tidy and it really is in a great spot.

First visit to this site

We almost went passed the site entrance on our arrival due to there being no signage across the road. The siting of current signage is upon you before you know it when approaching from Bridport. We were allocated a pitch based on the size of our unit which was a first with the CC and the pitch we had was small with no space to park our car at the side. Clearly a recent acquisition for the Club as the pitch sizes were small and the toilet block was very dated. The covid rules were adhered to most times by other campers. I would have expected some hand sanitizer at the water and waste points. The roadway on site is white stone which did make it hard to use the pull along wheels on the toilet waste and there was only one chemical disposal point. We were disturbed by two different sets of campers, both in motorhomes who had their radios/cd,s playing quite loudly which did spoil our peace and quiet. The site is in a lovely location and once the CC have carried out improvements will certainly be a great acquisition.

A very cramped site in Bridport

We have recently returned from a break at Bingham Grange and were most unimpressed. This recent addition to the network falls well below the club standards that we have come to expect. The pitches are far too small for the average 4 berth caravan with awning, leaving cars parked all over the place. It felt a bit like camping in a Tesco car park. Lots of empty tent pitches so there is room to re-design the layout and pitches but this will need a big investment. Not a site we will be coming back to in the future unless it is brought up to club standard. Allowances were made for the covid restrictions and we had no complaints about the staff. Some visitors seemed to know nothing about the covid arrangements with rubber bands etc. We suspect a number of caravan owners had allowed visitors to stay which was against the rules which we accept would be difficult to control. Sorry club. You have made a mistake in buying this old commercial site.
