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!

"Good Location"

We've been twice this year to the site, 1 week in May and 2 in August and had a lovely peaceful time. The site and facilities were always clean and tidy, and the staff aways acknowledged you when they walked by. If you get the right pitch the views over the surrounding fields are lovely.

Lovely little gem, please do not spoil it

We stayed here for 4 nights over the August Bank Holiday and what a lovely tranquil place it is. Please do not spoil it and remove its charm. It is great as it is. Would`nt see why people would hate it. Will deffo re visit next year as long as it is left as is, if it to commercialised and spoiled it will lose its appeal. Leave this place as is. I can`t rate the family section as it was just me my partner and our dogs.

Holidays 2019

Just returned from our three week holiday and this was our third visit this year. Our pitch was tidy and clean, hedges trimmed and grass mowed. It was nice to see that the sparrows and rabbits were still in residence. On one occasion in the three weeks I had to queue for a shower so I don't think this is anything to worry about. My daughter came to stay for a few nights who is a wheelchair user, she found travelling on the surfaces around the site challenging as it is gravel. Her comment about the disabled washroom was nice that it was only used by radar key users so was always available when needed, however the room was small and would not have accommodated a larger wheelchair. However, it was spotlessly clean and the water drained quickly in the wet room style shower so the floor did not remain wet and slippery. We are aware that renovations are due to take place and would recommend having a visual alert e.g. flashing light, in all the showers for the fire alarms in case of guests with hearing impairments. We didn't use the restaurant but that was our choice but it was nice to know it was available and heard a lot of people remark favourably about it. Maybe if the dog had been allowed up in the bar we might have gone for a drink in the evening. Really reassuring to see the dog walk remained unchanged and well looked after by campers and staff. As on previous visits the wardens showed professionalism and friendliness. We like to think that the changes that need to be made are made but at the same time keeping the character and atmosphere of the current site which enhances the peacefulness of this location.

First timers very well looked after

This was our first trip away in our motorhome, so obviously a bit apprehensive when we arrived, but we had no need to worry. The owners were extremely friendly and talked us through all the site options and where to go etc. and even came to check we were OK. The view from our pitch was stunning ,overlooking rolling hills and countryside. Site was very quiet and relaxing. There is a fantastic pub about a mile walk away with live jazz playing and showcasing local beers and ciders, and was a perfect way to spend a few hours! Just want to say thank you for making our first trip a great one.

A Marmite Site

We arrived at the site on the Friday before the August Bank Holiday weekend. The site is layout is very tight with culdesacs leaving little room for manoeuvring. so the Wardens sensibly allocated new arrivals a pre-allocated pitch. While waiting for the wife to book in, I spoke to the warden who explained that the site had received mixed reviews. It was a bit like Marmite you will either love it or hate it!. While many of the comments about the site are valid, Limited facilities which need updated and very tight pitches (Which is where a motor mover is a godsend) we liked the sense of privacy afforded by the Hedges around each pitch. Wel liked the quiet peaceful nights no traffic noise, lots of wildlife; bird song in the mornings, with an on-site on-site bar whats not to like? If you have your own facilities onboard your caravan or motorhome then the facilities are a minor concern. We would especially like to thank the staff for their hard work trying to keep clean and maintain a site which has its challenges, while still managing to be friendly and welcoming. As for location, the site is ideally located for visiting West Bay, Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Dorchester. If If you take a look at some of the more commercial sites located nearby with rows of Caravans with little character, then this site is a gem. We would be happy to return it is just a shame we will have to wait until after the refurbishment.
