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.

The best site I have been to

Firstly, the wardens are extremely friendly and helpful. Everything is clean, neat and tidy. The site has separate areas surrounded by trees and bushes so that even if it is fairly busy, it is as if you are in the middle of a forest. The facilities are excellent - drinking and waste water, with drains plus chemical disposal points and bins can be found throughout the site. It is an easy walk to the pub, train station and shop. Will definitely be back despite staying for 9 nights this time!

Lovely site with good transport connections for Weymouth,Poole etc

Very well kept site with excellent and helpful wardens. Pitches are mainly grass and a lot are quite near or under trees. No problem in hot weather but in rain that could be a downside. Noise from the railway is not intrusive although some pitches are quite close to the line. Plenty of shower blocks but only one main toilet block which depending on where you pitch might be a negative. The deer on site are delightful but not to be approached as we saw an animal starting to threaten a couple who got too close. Very convenient that the train station was almost outside with lots to do in the area. A site to return to.

Don't Tell Anyone!

We have stayed at many Club Sites and this is simply the best. Made by wonderful wardens, beautiful location and fantastic Pub next door. Loved it soooo much, booked to come back in a few weeks time. This is a beautiful site, not what we call a Car Park site, all pitches are in small groves, with Bee hotels, wooden trains and benches dotted around the site. Walking up to the shower block each morning and seeing wild deer was magical. The toilets, nothing to fear just adds to the natural surroundings you are in. There is train noise, which is mostly the barriers going up and down. Trains are brilliant, Weymouth in 19 mins and all the way to London the other direction, so you would never need to use your car. The Frampton Arms has been recently refurbished and you are guaranteed a very warm welcome and a doggy welcome with a jar of dog biscuits on the bar for them. Be sure to book, just won the best carvery in Dorset.

So good we've booked to stay again!

Our first visit to this lovely campsite didn't disappoint. The friendly welcome, the beauty of the site, the local wildlife, the cleanliness of the facilities, the proximity to a good pub and the railway being on the doorstep made it one of the best we've stayed at. As we only had a few nights here, we've decided to visit again in a couple of months and have booked up already. It's a great location to visit many places of interest and with the added benefit of the trainline which makes access to places like Weymouth and Dorchester among others really simple and reasonably priced.The facilities are spotless and although the shower and toilet facilities are separate, we didn't find it a problem. We were visited by the resident deer on 3 occasions and on one of them, mum and baby came along. We were warned not to feed or approach them as they were with young but they were quite happy to wander around our pitch in search of food. At this time of year, we had the benefit of seeing all of the rhododendrons in bloom around the site.

one of the best

This site is one of the best we have ever stayed on the facilities were spotless the staff excellent and the setting stunning. There is a pub nearby that serves a great carvery every day. The position is perfect for exploring the best parts of Dorset. We visited to find the deer had fawns. One regularly left her baby in the undergrowth only a yard or so from our van, amazing ! Other wildlife was all around in the beautifull woodland setting. The only downside were the ignorant dog owners who refused to keep their 'little babies' on leads. Several times we saw the deer worried by loose dogs.and chasing squirells DISPICABLE. There were several children on site and the majority were very well behaved and enjoying the enviroment but there were a couple of under 7's left to run around frightening the wildlife standing in the road stopping traffic and throwing stones at vans. With no sign of any parents they were still running around at 8pm. We have had young children and dogs so not anti either but we did keep them under control when camping. Come on people have a bit of respect for your fellow campers and enviroment.
