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!

Exceeded my Expectations

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
We have just returned from a week at this site and I have to say we were very pleasantly surprised. I agree that certain facilities aren’t it up to usual club standard, but in some ways, it is good to visit a site that isn’t the usual flat and sterile club layout. The layout and semi derelict arm buildings reminded us of some French campsites we have visited. The wardens were very friendly and welcoming and although we were allocated a particular pitch, we were told that two others were available. The facilities were a bit strange, they were kept immaculate by the tireless efforts of the wardens. Due to the fuel crisis we were forced to stay local, but we still found plenty of walks and very local beaches which be accessed from this site. I just hope that when the club gets around to refurbishing this site, they do it tastefully. Although the basic facilities such as electric supply, toilets, showers and pitch spacing need to be addressed, but can this be done without destroying this sites unique charm.

Marvellous

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
First thing, don't read the reviews, or if you do take them with a pinch of salt. The elephant in the room is of course that the shower block is old and needs replacing, but the showers are hot, and are immaculate. Moving on. The site is in a beautiful location, and is perfect for both Bridport, and the Jurassic coast. It is easily accessed from the main road, and far enough away so as not to be disturbed by traffic noise. The staff are friendly, welcoming, and hard working, but always have time. The dog walk is fantastic. Pitches are allocated based on size of your outfit, so you get an appropriate one, which is only common sense, isn't it! If use are thinking of using the clubs WIFI, don't it is seriously rubbish at the best of times, here even worse. Now you just need to go there!

Pleasant site in rural location

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
The best part about this site is definitely its location, as it is well away from any roads, and therefore traffic noise is non-existent. The worst part is that the EHU is a feeble 10 Amps, meaning that you need to be very careful running appliances to avoid tripping the circuitry. Indeed the pitch to which I was allocated had a tripped circuit and it took me a while to figure that out and reset it. Another issue is that the pitches themselves are quite small, so if you have an awning you have to park your car sideways in front of your caravan, which means you have a view of several parked cars close up from your front window. If I'd thought about it and read the instructions more carefully, I could have positioned my caravan the "wrong" way round, which would have given me a far better view towards the west and the setting sun. The proximity of the pitches and the narrowness of the connecting tracks also made it quite difficult to manoeuvre the caravan, especially when leaving. Fortunately, hte neighbouring pitch was unoccupied when I left so I was able to use the extra space to line up my caravan for the final exit. Others with bigger vans had to use their movers to do that. Despite these issues I did like the site a lot. The location and tranquillity more than made up for the negative points. If you like walking and cycling this is a great area. Bridport and the coast are very close and have a lot to offer. I'd also recommend a visit to nearby Symondsbury Estate with its famous Colmer's Hill. I understand that the site is going to be refurbished next year, so I expect that it will be even better after that has been done. 16 Amp EHU please!

No mixed showers please!

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
This was disappointing in some respects. We were allocated our pitch, but we prefer to choose our own. We were on a gravel pitch, which we were concerned about the motorhome getting stuck when we left. The lady on reception was very friendly and welcoming, but the biggest problem with this site is the toilets. There were only 2 female showers, and a similar number of female toilets. There were mixed toilets and showers, but this is not somethingI would be interested in using. In addition, one of the mixed toilet/showers was out of order, leaving 2 at the back of the building, which I would not use. Please note CC, that I don’t believe that this is the way forward for most people, who like privacy when using toilets and showers. In addition, the showers and toilets are not close to the pitches. We had a beautiful walk through the countryside, but the final part was along a very busy road, with no paths. The waste point was also difficult due to its position, as we had to use an additional hose to use it. Apart from the above points, it is a nice site.

Pitch allocation

Bridport Bingham Grange Club Site
Was allocated a grass pitch where the grass was longer than that in the dog walk and when I enquired was told they could cut the grass but had to leave it long to avoid stones damaging units. I arrived on the pitch two hours after the latest departure time and every pitch around me was empty so why had the grass not been cut prior to arrival like every other site. This was particularly annoying as the pitch was allocated to us and we were given no choice of the many available pitches.
