Why stay here ...

Crossways Club Site is an imaginatively landscaped destination set in the midst of 35 acres of lush woodland. 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.

Woodland setting

This campsite has a great setting with separate areas in the woodland which sets itself apart from many other sites. The composting toilets are unusual but much better than I expected and not as rustic as I've seen on smaller sites. The shower and toilet blocks are a bit dated although both kept spotlessly clean by the wardens and no shortage of hot water or any queues that we experienced. The train line can be a bit annoying mainly from the sounding of the horns rather than passing noise, but it's not that busy a line. Location also convenient for local shops and pubs. Wardens very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return.

Great holiday

Just returned from a 1 week break at Crossways. Lovely site with pitches amongst the trees. Great dog walk on site. Site is very dark at night, so a torch is essential. Only problem we had was that we weren't fans of the composting toilets and that the toilets and showers were in separate blocks. The individual shower cubicles were also very small. Nice pub within walking distance and Co-Op nearby. Lots to do in the local area, great walking with the dogs with many beaches dog friendly. Durdle door and Lulworth Cove worth a visit as is Maiden Castle.
