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!

Not the best review but there is hope!

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
We were a little disappointed with this site. The pitches vary, some quite small. The facilities are dated and as they are set out as individual bathrooms a little restricted when site is full. However, I understand that plans are afoot later this year to close and completely refurbish. It needs better pitches, better access roads around the site, a brand new facilities block and oh yes, the staff need an office a little bigger than a broom cupboard! This is a fairly recent purchase as a club site but is not yet up to the standards we expect from a CAMC site. Let’s hope that the improvements happen as it is a great location for a site.

Beautiful site

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
We arranged our family reunion at this wooded and tranquil site. The pitches maybe random in size , but there’s always enough room, with even allocated parking near your setup if needed. The facilities were spotlessly clean and the wardens were very pleasant ,friendly and helpful. Nearby the walks through woods and conservation areas lead to delightful meadows along the river where we saw all sorts of wildlife - deer , birds and dragon flies. This walk eventually ended at a nice pub should you wish to visit. Nearby is the Hare and hounds pub at Waytown. Excellent pub with good homemade food and a handsome welcome from Bob. This is our third visit to the site and we have never been disappointed. We understand that the Club will be developing the site further - please do not spoil its character!

Unfriendly Warden

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Campsite
If you enjoy being told off for parking in the wrong place when you first arrive after driving all day, this is the place to head for. Yes I admit, I missed the “New arrivals” sign but to be greeted by the Gastapo with “you’re parked in the wrong place” (instead of “would you mind parking over there please” narked me so much we left, cancelled our booking and then revoked our CAMC Membership.

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.
