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.

Laid back

Spend 6 days in September at this site second staff in 4 weeks and I do take other reviews into account and yes the showers are in desperate need of upgrading. Right that is the only moan out of the way, this site is perfect for people who love peace and quiet and having breakfast with deers. The staff are amazing just gutted that they won't be here next year so thanks a million for the hard work you all put in. the facilities are extremely clean despite the amount of objects fallen off the trees at this time of year. Beautiful site with excellent pitches you have to get early to get some sun due to the trees but that is what makes this site so enjoyable. My wife can't walk far so walking around this site with 2 border collies and a golden retriever was very enjoyable. There is a pub just outside and a train station to take you anywhere, there is also a dog walk opposite the pub and and playing fields for the 4 legged friends to run around. We will d be returning next year as the van is cwtched up for the winter now.

Enjoyable stay

We stayed on the site for 12 days, most enjoyable stay. The wardens were very helpful, polite and friendly. I can't comment on 'good for families' as this didn't apply to us. The railway wasn't too much of an issue, the trains don't run through the night. The station is a short walk from the site (via the foot gate) and Weymouth and Dorchester is within easy reach. The composting toilets weren't an issue and they certainly didn't smell when we were there. I do agree about the showers, the water pressure could have been better and they are a little tired, but always clean. The Frampton Arms do lovely meals, can recommend the carvery, they also do Gluten Free which is a bonus. This is our second visit to the site and will not be our last.

Lovely quiet week

Stayed here for a week at the beginning of September. Unusually the site is next to a Camping and Caravan Club site split by the railway line so some care is needed, also as stated as you turn into the site's private road you'll see a CL next to the bungalow, just drive past. This is not a riposte to the latest review of the site, but when we booked in I remarked to the warden (male) how efficient that process had been, one of the clearest I've experienced. We were meeting friends who were already on site so we just selected one of 2 pitches that the warden had helpfully identified as being free nearby. The site is not like many of the club sites as it's in a wooded area and the pitches are dotted around, in parts it's almost like several CL's and this gives it some charm. I'm sure the deer have been mentioned suffice to say it was great to see them every day, they are not shy! Somebody mentioned that the toilets smelled, none of our party felt this was the case, the shower blocks and toilet blocks were immaculately kept as the whole site seems to be and this is a credit to the team of wardens who we found to be a friendly lot. The Frampton arms is about a 5 minute wallk from a small side gate, beer is OK and the carvery is recommended. We'd go again.
