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!

Updating required but how much?

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
An ideally situated site to explore west Dorset and Jurassic coast from Portland to East Devon. The site still has the feeling of a commercial site with closer pitches and tight roadways as well as fewer toilet blocks. We understand the club is planning a complete redevelopment at the end of the season which we are sure will address many of these issues. Our concern is that the finished site will be yet another over developed site by the club to include several holiday flats, ready camping tents, bell tents and cafe etc. We are sure many members will welcome these developments but please balance this with adding good quality traditional low facility sites in sympathy with the surrounding countryside at a reasonable price for those in the club who value this type of traditional club site.

Decent location if you have transport

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Attended this site in July 2021 when the weather was absolutely boiling hot. We drove in via Charmouth, so skirted Bridport on the way in, which was easy enough to negotiate - decent roads & signage. We booked a service pitch, which was not great, as all service pitches appeared tight for room. We have a Motorhome, so we were relatively OK, but those with caravans found things tight. Our waste water drain on the pitch was basically on the grass next door to our pitch & at a higher level, so running our waste pipe was a mission. We noticed the Club had a temporary plastic drain pipe to the other sides drain, as clearly there had been issues .......so we used that one. The site is clean & well maintained by the staff - and its actually a nice site to walk around - very green, with some lovely trees & shrubs. The toilet/shower block is very dated, and there are clearly not enough of them - but again, we found them to be clean and well maintained. The reception/shop was useful in that it sold some supplies, drinks and food. The staff were nice and helpful. Location wise - no problem if you have a car or Motorbike. However if you not, then you will struggle to get around. Buses do not appear to be that frequent. We are decent walkers, so we walked into Bridport, then onto West Bay (from the map the site give you) - in total around 5 miles - then of course 5 miles return. The heat made the walk a lot harder, otherwise it would have been OK, as no hills. There is also a nice walk from the site along the River Brit. As been mentioned on here, the dog walk is amazing. All in all a nice stay ...........however, the site toilet/shower block needs a refurb.

Dog friendly!

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
This site has the best dog walk I have discovered so far. There is a large fenced-in area where dogs can run free, going down the hill through woodland to a small river and there is a wide mown path for when it is raining. It stretches along two sides of the site, and takes about 20 minutes to complete - so retrace your steps and even a spaniel would call that a good stretch. The staff are very friendly, and a courtesy phone call from reception just before the office closed meant that even though I was arriving late, I knew what to do when I did arrive and they knew I was on my way.

Pros and cons

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Firstly, if you turn up here and expect a stereotype club site, forget it. This site is a hybrid,the organisation, management of site and housekeeping definitely club standard. The facilities whist adequate and clean club standard they are not. Whilst we had an excellent pitch I did note that some pitches could be a challenge size wise. The EHU's need upgrading The wardens where some of the friendliest we've met, cheerful despite the obvious challenges they have with the site. I am sure with some investment, particularly the washing facilities and pitch reorganising, this would become one of the best sites in the clubs portfolio.
