Why stay here ...

Crossways Club Site is an imaginatively landscaped destination set in the midst of 35 acres of lush woodland - ideal when touring in Dorset. Pitching is available in open groves, all of which are linked by a scenic snaking road. This makes for easy access around the caravan site, from the charmingly named Iron Horse Meadows to Poachers Paradise. If you want to leave the car behind for an excursion or if you're simply a rail enthusiast, the railway is a five minute walk away.

There is a pleasant pub adjacent to Crossways Club Site, serving good food.  The caravan park is within convenient reach of a wealth of interesting attractions at the nearby town of Weymouth. Also close by is the harbour town of Poole, with its blue flag beaches and Lighthouse Arts Centre, and a short drive from the site brings you to the historic market town of Dorchester. From its glorious beach to the charming shops and wide selection of restaurants, there is something memorable to be had for everyone in the family.

Please note that this site has dry composting toilets, shower facilities are located in separate blocks.

Glad we found it

We have just spent three nights at this lovely site and we are so pleased we found it. Compost toilets are ok, showers not great but the location makes up for all,that. We saw deer and many squirrels every day, nice pub just minutes up the road , next time we will stay longer and catch the train which again is only minutes away. The wardens were great so friendly and helpful especially in these difficult times , it cannot be easy for them with all the current restrictions . We will certainly be back for a longer visit next year .

Brilliant site and wardens

This was our second visit to Crossways this year. The head wardens are some of the most helpful we have encountered and should be used as a bench mark for some of the less helpful wardens around the sites. Always friendly and nothing too much trouble. Site is spotlessly clean, showers need upgrading but are ok. Well laid out site although some pitches under trees. Great location for site seeing and train station five min walk from site. Will be back.

Nice site let down by facilities

Stayed here this week; upon arrival the site looked nice but the showers and toilet blocks were awful,, showers had very low pressure and no shelves.  Would be nice if the showers were of the same standatd but theyre not. We contacted the club and had nothing back , t's a shame as the area is beautifull but as caravan club members,  the facilities are not up to caravan club  standards which we all pay for. Wouldn't come back here. we were told they take members comments seriously but seems they dont as this site gets busy but the showers are a big let down.   The wardens were nice and apologised but they couldn't do anything about it our main holiday was ruined by poor, outdated  facilities.  Caravan club needs to react to members queries not ignore them hoping it goes away .a site which could be so much better needs a big upgrade, toilets and showers together, clean and modern and water pressure improved will be a start

Good location

Lovely site set in the woods with deer roaming. Showers need updating as the pressure is very low. Site warden was extremely rude when my husband and I rode our bikes where we weren’t permitted to ( it was a genuine mistake, we hadn’t seen the sign) His whole body language was aggressive and totally uncalled for. For this reason we wouldn’t go back. Apart from that, the pub next door does nice food and the train station being so close was a bonus too!

4 night stay

We stayed 4 nights in our motorhome, luckily we had a sunny pitch, a lot are in the shade al day. We didn’t use the dry composting toilets and only used the showers once as the pressure is really low, there were families on site but didn’t see anything for the kids to do except ride there bikes or scooters around the site up and down the hills, Train station 5 minutes away as is the pub which served an excellent roast. Would we go back, no. The club can and does do better sites
