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!

Good but requires a bit of improvement

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
Can't fault the staff or wardens, they were friendly as usual. The site could do with a bit of an update, the showers weren't great and it was hard work with kids. However, the site was lovely in my opinion. The pitches are all different and we were on one with a bit of grass to the side which was surrounded by hedges so created a natural barrier between the pitch and the road for the kids. It was a great location for getting to all sorts of places, Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, etc. despite the fact that it needs a bit of TLC, I'd still stay there again.

Nice but needs a little tlc

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
The site requires some tlc especially the toilet block. There are insufficient facilities for the size of the site. The laundry room is also the washing up area far too small. The roads are dust tracks so your feet / shoes are always dusty walking to the toilet block. The pitches (we were on the lower site) are on a slope so you definitely require 2 or more blocks to level your caravan. The pitch sizes are narrow to the extent you have to park your car in front of your caravan not at the side like every other site I have visited. The positive are that the site has a good location for visiting other towns and the wardens were friendly. It just need’s modernising and the pitches spacing out to provide more privacy and space to relax.

Lovely, peaceful site.

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
Third visit to this site, love that we can walk into Bridport as we don't like moving the van once we are parked up. The dog walking from the site is very good too. Maybe the best thing is the amount of greenery around the site with a number of pitches being separated by hedging, this gives a nice feeling of privacy and is good for the wildlife. The Pymore Inn is within walking distance and the food there was very good.

A West Dorset Gem

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
This was a characterful and much different to the normal style of Club-site. Wardens Team were friendly and helpful, landscaping and gardens were superb. Our ten night stay on a Serviced pitch was stress free and a great location for exploring all of Dorset. A few minor niggles include the much mentioned shower facilities, not really enough when the site is full, only one toilet disposal point, and Internet reception was pretty none existent on the club internet front - bothers the kids far more than me. We will return to this former farm-yard style site as it was so pretty and unique.

Good but could be better

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
This is a lovely site managed by an excellent team led by the very helpful Debbie and Nick. But its facilities are not up to normal Club standards. Initially I was allocated (unusual for a Club site) a pitch in the lowest part of the site where I had only a limited TV signal, no wi-fi and no 4G mobile signal. Fortunately Debbie was able to move me to the top of the site to a pitch with lovely views, and strong 4G signal, but still only limited TV and wi-fi signals. Excellent walking from the site and a good lunch at the Hare and Hounds pub. Not currently a site for families but certainly scope for development.
