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 Terrific Week

We have just returned from 7 nights at Bingham Grange, having previously booked months ago, before it was bought by the C&MC. So it was such a surprise to learn of the Club’s acquisition. Firstly I would like to comment on the Wardens. We have always found the Wardens, no matter on which site, to be cheerful, helpful, knowledgeable and most friendly. But I have to say the Wardens on this site are all that PLUS. They were amazing, given that they are dealing with some unusual situations on a site which is not (yet) up to Club standards. Well done to each and every one of them. They are certainly going that extra mile to clean the facilities, mow the grass, clip the hedges etc.and still have time for a joke and a smile. We have stayed at Bingham Grange several times before and like it for it’s peacefulness, proximity to many lovely beaches, towns etc in such a pretty part of Dorset, and for the brilliant doggie walk. So we will look forward to seeing the refurbishments made in the coming months/years (?) by the Club which can only improve an already lovely site.

A good find

We booked the site last minute on the way home from a trip and did not realise the cmc had recently taken it over. We were allocated a pitch due to our Motorhome size which was not a problem. The site is lovely a fantatic dog walk and an on site bar/restaurant which was a real bonus. The food was excellent they don’t allow dogs but we ordered the food with the option of using our own plates or being put into takeaway boxes. We used plates that were well wrapped and enjoyed piping hot delicious food in our van. I hope the club keep this on. I am sure the cmc will be sympathetic with the upgrading of the site and will make the necessary updates. This is a site we will definitely be back to visit.

Surprised at the Club

We've stayed on this site several times over the years when it was "Adult Only" and it appears little has changed since being taken over by the Club. Many of the pitches, which you could pre-book, are very tight and you will struggle on some of them to get a large unit, awning and car on. So I'm surprised the Club opening the site before developing it. Likewise the toilet facilities. I would call them "adequate", when the site had only 2 persons per pitch. Now it's open to families I think they will be found wanting when the site's full. Plus, the toilets have been "tired"for some time and need updating. I can see this being a great site in years to come, there's plenty of room to expand, but it needs developing to get up to your normal Club standard.

Bridport Bingham Grange

We have stayed here previously and enjoyed it's peace and tranquility and on our most recent visit from 21st to 25th May very little had changed although we did see C&MC people walking around with clipboards! My concern is that it wasn't "broke" but the C&MC are going to spoil it by "fixing" it! From our perspective, the site was pretty much near perfect and has already been changed for the worse by the decision to remove the "Adults only" restriction. Presumably, the next stage will be a childrens' play area and children in the small restaurant. I'm not anti - children. We took our three caravanning and will be taking the grandchildren as soon as they're old enough but the option to go somewhere decent, where there are no children, was really appreciated.

Please don't lose what made this site so exceptional. Please!!!

As Caravan Club members for some time this was one of the few non-CC sites we used to go to regularly. As an Adults-Only site we loved the peace and tranquility, the dog walks were exceptional and the “Piece de la Resistance” was the wonderful restaurant “Buzzards”. At first we were delighted to see this was now going to be a Caravan Club site. That would be the best of both worlds. But we hope it won’t lose the essence of what attracted us to it in the first place. Namely the Adults-Only environment and most importantly that wonderful restaurant, which now doesn’t even get a mention in the CC website. I sympathise with the members whose bookings were messed up – but please, Caravan Club, don’t lose the basics of what was a truly lovely site. It could be a real Gem of a CC site – but don’t lose what made it so great in the first place.
