Why stay here ...

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.

Situated 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 caravan site in Dorset 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!

Peaceful & tranquil site in a super location.

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
Just come back from an amazing weekend at this site, having never stayed there before, but having read all the reviews. Staff are all very friendly and helpful, including Debbie and her colleagues, they even took time to have a chat with us about how to begin the application process to become Assistant Site Managers, as my wife and I are interested! The site is in a peaceful tranquil location and everything is kept clean and well maintained. We took our dog and the walks on site and outside were amazing. Wee will definitely be staying there again!

Lovely setting and well-maintained site

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
Our first visit to this site and we had a superb time. I was a little concerned having read some of the previous reviews regarding the facilities, but actually I found them more than adequate and spotlessly clean - even the uni-sex private bathrooms I found quirky - but must admit numbers of facilities were limited and there were queues at busy times when the site was only around half full. The layout of the site, with hedges, trees and spacious plots around old farm buildings and rambling walks is lovely and very well-maintained by the hard-working wardens. The dog walk from the site was wonderful, one of the best I've encountered, and the location for the Jurassic coast and days out was perfect for us. Yes, I would return should we tour this area again, but with the limited number of showers may choose to avoid in peak season.

Charming Site

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
Have just returned from 8 nights in a touring van at this charming site. Booked a service pitch and a result there was only one suitable pitch for our needs on our arrival (Basecamp with rear RVA1 awning total approx 8.1 m.) . Pitches tend to be on the narrow side necessitating parking the car across the front of the pitch. In general there is good landscaping between pitches (grass and hedging) giving the site a mature natural effect rather than a series of gravel pitches. Considering the amount of grass, hedges and trees on site plus one of the best on site dog walks we have encountered, we found it incredible how well kept it was and can’t remember hearing the mower or hedge trimmer during our stay. There are plenty of dog poo bins which were regularly emptied but sad to say, you still get a few inconsiderate lazy slobs not picking it up! A lot has been written about the toilet/bathroom facilities and them being outdated which is probably the reason for the site getting 4 ticks rather than the usual 5. It has to be said that they are not to the normal modern club standard but we found them to be warm, functional and very clean thanks obviously to the site team. We would estimate that the site was half full including a fair number of unattended residential pitches. Not sure whether the facilities are adequate if the site is full? There are footpaths from the site to three pubs with some stiles to negotiate and some fields with cows and sheep. There is absolutely no way that you can safely walk along the main road outside the site. We used the site as a base to tour out in our car to the coast so was fine for us. In summary, we found this to be a peaceful charming site with easy vehicle access to Bridport, West Bay and the wider Jurassic coast. It has an outstanding dog walk with plenty of rabbits for entertainment! Probably would not use the site during high season.

Lovely stay - just wish we had found the site sooner

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
My sister and I stayed for the Easter long weekend. The site was lovely and quirky, the facilities were fine, they were clean and well maintained. The pitches are great because you get your own space, bordered by a small hedge. Despite it being Easter there were not many children around which adds to the peace and quiet. The wardens were really friendly and more than happy to help. There is good walks available direct from site and Bridport and the coast is only a stone's throw away. We can understand the Club's desire to upgrade the facilities but it will mean some of the individuality of the site will be lost. Still onwards and upwards and we'll definitely come back.

Lovely site, no kids park, ideal for adult parties

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
Arrived at Bridport during Easter holidays, once checked in we were told which was our pitch and one of the wardens walked me to my pitch, this was a nice touch. There are 2 blocks for toilets and showers, the toilet block has 5 toilets and 2 showers, but by reception there are 5 individual shower cubicles with toilets, as a family we used these. I found them very clean and showers were powerful. Lovely dog walk in a circle around the park where dogs could run free and some slip ways down to the river where the dogs and kids could have a paddle, there are some wild onions growing which was a lovely scent. Or ideal for walks to town from the site, as it’s situated off a main A road where no paths are, to get to the local pub, you go through a gate from the dog walk and walk through some fields which have live stock, there are Sty’s to climb over so not good if you less able to climb. On one of the Saturday afternoons there was a quad or scramble bike racing around one of the fields which was not pleasant and a nuicence while trying to relax, this went on for hours (not the sites fault). About 10 minutes from west bay beach and a Morrisons shopping.
