Why stay here ...

We are not currently taking bookings for March - July 2020 as we are planning on carrying out some redevelopment work.

New for 2018, the Club is delighted to bring Bridport Bingham Grange to the network, 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.

The site is located 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 base 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!

Bad experience

The site has failed in two respects for us 1 We were reported to the Caravan Club for leaving the site at 6.40. There was no earliest leave time stated and the gates were not closed. We had to leave urgently but no allowance was made for that. We were very quiet but that did not seem to count. 2 We were assured that the restaurant was very good so we booked for “Pie night” On arrival we were told that there were no pies, no sausages, no steak and no risotto. This left a limited choice. They said had new potatoes but they were old, reheated and inedible.

Great Stay

A site with huge potential once the works planned for the coming winter are completed.It is well worth a visit now to experience at an early stage what could well become a top & sought after touring stay. Current toilet block facilities, as other reviewers have said, are below the usual C&MC standard but not dire. Just go with the right level of expectation and you will have a realy nice stay. The staff were all superb an extremely helpful. Particular thanks to Kim for helping us out with travel problems when the M3/M27 were closed on our day of arrival!

Glad we came here.

Having read some very mixed reviews we were a bit concerned about coming here. BUT, having spent a fortnight here in June we are so glad we dismissed the negatives. It ticked all the boxes for us and without a doubt has the friendliest team of wardens we have ever come across in over 40 years with the club. Looking forward to a return visit.

Campers will have different experiences.

The Club have taken over this site and have not yet got it up to their usual standard. All pitches are allocated as suitable pitches are far and few. We were given a sloping hardstanding which was difficult to reverse onto once our awning was erected. We were told to pitch as close to the peg which was on the righthand corner behind a tree. We only have a small camper with a driveaway awning and we just about fitted it on. The showers were a bit hit and miss but there are two very nice unisex ones if you manage to get in one. I wouldn't say it is not yet suitable for families as there isn't a play area. The dog walk is lovely and kept tidy. There is a restaurant but we didn't try it. All in all the staff work hard to make this site work but it really isn't up to standard.

Nice to have a club site that has got lots of atmosphere

Have just had a great 7 nights at this site .Great friendly staff nothing was too much trouble People complaining about only 10 amp supply ? What's the problem we used everything we needed with no trouble. We heard people moaning about it not being 5 star. For goodness sake get real if that's what you want go and stay is a 5 star hotel and stop complaining . Yes the site needs a bit of updating but don't make it too uniformed and spoil it .It's a bit quirky and like a lot of this sites in france and that's what makes it different and nice If people want it all laid out in tidy uniformed rows my advice is give up the caravan and go and stay at Butlins.Our thanks to the hard working staff for a great week.We will be back. Kind Regards Pat and Dudley Walker.
