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.

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.

A gem of a site

I stayed here for one night having booked a last minute escape. I was very warmly greeted by Elaine who not only suggested a pitch for me but gave me lots of information on places to visit during my brief stay. She is a credit to the Club and I cant wait to revisit and discover more that the local area offers. During my stay I was thrilled to be up close and personal with three deer who visited my pitch - this Crossways site is quite magical.

Very Good Site

Been here twice this year, Very quiet and pleasant and tidy site with a good layout, wardens very polite and helpful, nothing to much trouble. no play area for children so obviously not what you would class as a family site for young children, although when I was that age I would have loved it here with copses and tall trees for walking and wildlife, on site and local.The layout of the site is good with some small groups of pitches in copses and some along the side, most are grass pitches but there is a hard standing gravel/stone area with, I think, six pitches, you can choose your own pitch from anywhere on site. Bring a TV aerial cable with you as there is a aerial hook up with each pitch and you may need a 25 metre mains hook-up cable. Mobile phone reception is nonexistent in most of the site (ee) though I guess it could depend on your supplier. The site is very close to a railway station and a pub with good food, you can take you canine family members into the public bar. Bus service in village half a mile down the road. showers and toilets are very good and of course cleaned daily. All in all, a friendly peaceful grown up site that we will be visiting again.

Ideal for nature lovers

Well located site in the area between Dorchester, Weymouth and Wareham (all accessible via the convenient railway station, plus the line also goes to Bournemouth, Poole, Southampton, Winchester and London Waterloo) Luckily we were not pitched too close to the railway, which could have been annoying with regular toots from the train as it approached/left the adjacent station. There is a pub next door which was so busy that we could not dine there, but the food looked nice (discount weekdays for Club members) A small shop was about 10/15 minutes walk along the main road. We are a retired couple so cannot comment on the suitability for family groups, although attention would need to be paid to children using the composting toilets. There was not much lighting after dark so a torch is needed if you are not right next to a sanitary block. This is the first Club site we have visited with resident deer! They were very tame. Many thanks to the wardens, who helped us restore electricity after our fuse blew. We will be coming back to this site again.

Enjoyable stay

I stayed for two nights on this site, on my way to Cornwall. An excellent choice. Friendly wardens and the site was very clean, tidy and well kept. I liked the fact that the wardens obviously care for the local wildlife as the deer are fed, particularly in the winter - and I saw wardens doing the rounds with bird food for various feeders. I have two dogs and found the dog walk excellent and quite a good walk - often the dog walk area is an after-thought. I particularly liked the compostible toilets - very eco-friendly, clean and no smell! A lovely site within a woodland setting - and very central to visit various places of interest. I would visit again.
