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!

First and last time

Our first time at this site. We booked a super pitch and as this is allocated we has no choice. Our pitch was on the top level of the site, behind the reception area. The pitch was very small and not having a mover on our van we had to do a lot of manoeuvring to get it on. Most cars on this site have to be parked in front of your van due to the size of the pitch. The roads are also narrow meaning our view for our 3 night stay was the rear end of large motorhome. The road noise was ever present, particularly with motorbikes. There is a lot of movement on this site, we felt it seemed like a stopover site. It's a busy site with lots of comings and goings and we had problems with car and caravan alarms constantly sounding. It's also heavily gravelled which personally we don't like. The dog walk is great, facilities are all unisex and due to the queuing clearly not plentiful enough. This site needs bringing up to club standard. Sadly not a site we shall return to.

Motorhome Unfriendly

Pitches are allocated according to size which can lead to problems with access to some at busy times. Without a car you have to walk an hour to Bridport ...pleasant in the sunshine but weather can't be relied on. Cycling down the only road is dangerous for a mile and half before picking up the cycle track to Bridport and West Bay (5 miles). We tried it twice and it is unpleasant on a very busy road and not for the nervous as traffic builds up behind on steep twisty road. Facilities are OK but the Restaurant has disappeared. So OK for a caravan or panel van but not ideal for larger motorhomes if you want to explore the area....there is a large motorhome friendly car park in West Bay behind the old station.

Be good when its finished

The site is not yet up to typical club standards but I understand that work is underway. we visited in our campervan which we didn't want to use once sited. The walk to Bridport across the fields is around an hour at a reasonable pace. To cycle into Bridport you have to encounter a short stretch of cycling on a fairly busy road. We arrived on a Friday afternoon in early September and found it extremely difficult to get a taxi into town (took about 10 calls) and also getting back in the evening. Very pleasant walk across the fields/country roads into Bridport and a lovely country pub on the way. Not sure the walk would have been so pleasant in wet conditions. Reception were very helpful in giving clear directions. A nice site and we enjoyed our visit.

Beautiful, immaculately kept site in stunning countryside

This is a gem of a site, the pitches are well laid out with gravel hard standing and most have an immaculately kept grass area between them. The views are lovely and the sunsets this time of year are stunning. The tent areas are on the lower site and on grass with fabulous views. Unlike the usual site toilet blocks this site offers rather different individual bathrooms which have allowed them to offer private facilities during this difficult time. The cleanliness couldn’t be faulted. The wardens are such lovely helpful couples who work incredibly hard while still finding time to offer help and advice with a smile. This part of Dorset is simply stunning with wonderful coastal walks and pretty villages and small towns. We would recommend this site unreservedly.

Great addition to the Club portfolio

Recently taken over by the Caravan Club, this site is situated about 2 miles north of Bridport on the A3066. You will only see signs right by the entrance, so it is easy to overshoot and SatNav does not direct you accurately. More visible signs are required urgently. The site offers pitches for caravans, motor homes and tents. It is of a good standard with the usual friendly wardens. Due to the variable pitch sizes you will be allocated to a set pitch. I loved the way the site is broken up by hedging, and some of the tent pitches were in their own private spaces. If you have a motorhome (and there were lots) the serviced pitches are a definite bonus. The site is essentially in three areas. The upper site (to the left of the entrance) is more cramped than a normall CAMC site. The middle site (we were on pitch 81 in this area) is very nice. The lower site is motorhomes and tents. I hope future changes planned don't spoil this. Towards the end of our stay the new wardens opened a small shop - very welcome. Unfortunately ice cream had yet to arrive and gas was in short supply. There are lovely dog walks and it is a straight 2km strl over fields to the Pymore Inn and the Half Moon pubs one way and the Hare & Hounds the other. Do check opening times as we found both the Half Moon and the Hare were closed Mondays & Tuesdays. If you want peaceful beaches, we found Charmouth and Seatown were much quieter than West Bay. However, some local roads are no good for Motorhomes. There is also a good caravan spares and accessories shop, Dorset Leisure, at Charmouth. The site is in the process of transformation to meet CAMC standards. The restaurant and bar has closed and it is likely there will be holiday cottages, a new office and pitch improvements over the next year or two. I hope they don't get rid of the individual washing/toilet/shower cubicles. I especially liked the slate floored ones behind the site office. This arrangement felt much safer in the post Covid19 world than the traditional CAMC blocks.
