Why stay here ...

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!

A lovely site - very friendly wardens

We were allocated a lovely pitch on this peaceful site. Pitches are allocated due to the shape and size of some of them which isn't a standard C&MC size - we understand this will change when the upgrade takes place next winter. The toilet blocks are rather dated, although spotlessly clean, but again these will be upgraded over the winter. As we arrived and set up on a cold and wet Friday afternoon, we visited the bar for a couple of drinks to get warm and dry out. We didn't eat there, but the food looked very good. Very friendly wardens and the site is maintained to a very high standard. Definitely a site we will revisit.

Peace and Quiet

This site was so peaceful. Lovely walks across fields, and a lovely woodland walk on site. My dogs thought they were in paradise and so did we. Everything is so organised and clean. The wardens are very friendly and helpful right from the time you arrive till the moment you leave. Would definately return.

Good addition and something different

Great location for exploring this popular area. Whilst some people like the uniform 'corporate' standards of the average CMC site, this one makes a refreshing change. The pretty cottagey reception building at the centre of the site houses all of the facilities including the bar and restaurant on the first floor. (Didn't try the food as they hadn't geared up a take-away menu as yet) There are a number of unisex family bathrooms at the front, but there are small traditional style gents/ladies shower/toilet cubicles at the rear. There are also a couple of nice additional bathrooms to the rear with excellent large showers. On the downside having just two outside washing up sinks might be inconvenient at busy times. The WiFi on offer is from an independent supplier and not compatible with the standard CMC system, so if you've got a 12 month subscription it won't work here .. you pay extra and it isn't cheap. Luckily there is a good 4G signal. The pitch allocation upon arrival seemed pointless. There were just 2 units sited on the lower park meaning 95% of pitches were free. Our initial allocated pitch was opposite one of those already sited with a view behind of a large outbuilding. Suffice to say we requested to move to a central pitch with far reaching countryside views, which the staff were very happy to oblige. Great large dog walk with access to riverside public footpaths.

Little Gem in rural Dorset

Really lovely site set in beautiful countryside. We stayed here in March 2019 for 6 nights. The site is nice and quiet as it is set back from the nearest road, the pitches are nice and big and most of them are set on pea-shingle. Ours was a fully serviced pitch, note that electricity is 10 amps only but we didn't really have an issue with that. You just have to be careful what you have switched on at the same time. The showers and toilets are spotlessly clean. The main block is a little old but very clean and there are some family rooms which are more modern with really lovely hot showers. No shower button to keep pressing on and off, plenty of hot water. There's a small bar/restaurant onsite which serves food in the evenings. We didn't eat here but sat and had a few drinks most nights. The food looked good though. A nice wooded area for dogs to walk and sniff around, they are allowed off-lead in this area. Also direct access to public footpaths through the countryside to Hare & Hounds 2.5 miles away (OK food) and then a short drive up the road is the Half Moon which has excellent food. Both dog-friendly. Bridport is a 5 minute drive away with all the usual high street shops that you need, lots of restaurants and take-aways. Recommend HIVE Beach Cafe but you need to get there early as it is always busy. You can walk across the cliff tops from West Bay down to Burton Bradstock where the cafe is located. Site is well lit at night. Couldn't see any children's play area which suited us to be honest although it's not an adult-only site. Staff worked continuously to keep the site in perfect condition and always very friendly. Would certainly recommend this site, it's definitely one of our Top 3.

Excellent site

We have just returned from Bingham Grange and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the site. Despite some work being carried out this did not make any difference as the work being done will only make will be beneficial to the site. The wardens were excellent, polite and very helpful. The Buzzard Bar serves very good food, well cooked and good value. We will definitely return.
