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.

Great Location, a "get away from it all" peaceful site with quick transport links to the best and busiest locations in south Dorset.

Crossways Caravan Club Site
The site write up is spot on. Additionally the site management are very welcoming and helpful. They are ever present around the site, very hard working and willing to talk and advise adding to the feeling of a secure environment (open woodland) as can be. There is lots of wildlife on site. This was a first outing, a two night stay to test our new equipment, we picked the perfect location. Peaceful, easy access with transport links to the busy locations of south Dorset.

Very quiet, peaceful and full of deer!

Crossways Caravan Club Site
We had a great 3 night stay here to dust off the holiday cobwebs. Easy to access and the site is well laid out and although large it does not seem so as there are at least 5 different pitch areas within little pockets on the park. We had a nice open pitch within easy access of the necessary SP's etc. We walked off site to the railway and had an easy trip into Weymouth and Dorchester for the day. The site is riddled with Deer which are not hard to find and watch. Overall we had a great stay and have no complaints at all. Thank you

A superb site

Crossways Caravan Club Site
We have just spent two weeks on this lovely site. We cycled all around the area and beyond. Close enough to the coast for some days by the sea and the fabulous Jurassic headlands. The site itself is clean and well managed and the wardens welcoming and helpful but to be honest they did so well we barely noticed them. I mean that in the nicest possible way! Great introduction to Dorset and we will be back.

Woodland paradise

Crossways Caravan Club Site
As new members, our first stay on a Club site. Crossways has set the bar high for other sites! How lovely to have small pockets for pitches amongst woodland, rather than regimented rows. A real back to nature experience with sightings of deer, squirrels and other wildlife, birdsong daytime and owls hooting at night. Very environmentally friendly site using dry compost toilets, surprisingly looked just like normal toilets, with no need to flush. Just a few minutes walk to the station for our trip to nearby Dorchester, an interesting town with lots of lovely architecture, river walk, pleasant park (excellent playground for children, though none with us this time!), museums, individual shops and good choice of coffee shops and restaurants /pubs. Local CoOp provided all our supplies at reasonable prices and was a 15 minute walk along the road. Even though we had torrential rain the first 24 hours, the 'grass' site was not waterlogged. Our stay wasn't long enough to take advantage of local walks, bike rides, eating in the nearby Frampton Arms (heard good reports from others about it), or take the train to Weymouth. Great place where you can go sightseeing using public transport, another environmentally friendly tick for the site!

Wonderful woodland site

Crossways Caravan Club Site
We had a fabulous stay here in May. Big 'Thank you' to wardens Chris and Tom who sorted out our last minute booking and gave us a friendly welcome after a rather problematic journey. This is a lovely site and we would definitely make a return visit.
