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.

Beautiful woodland setting

We are camping beginners and Crosslands was only the fourth site that we have stayed at. The woodland setting was an absolute delight. and different to any other site we have visited. Staying in a small glade in the wood with perhaps 4 or 5 other caravans or motorhomes was so much more private and intimate. You can go to sleep with the owls hooting in the trees and in the morning see deer running through the site. Enchanting! The site is in a great location with the railway station just down the road where you can get to places like Weymouth, Dorchester and Bournemouth. During our short stay we left our campervan behind and instead used the train. All is not perfect however. The dry composting toilets are not as grim as you might imagine but they do smell. The showers do work but the water pressure is just adequate. The site also suffers from noise from the railway but you do quickly get used to the trains sounding their horns as they come up to the crossing. We loved our stay at this site which formed a great base for exploring the delights of Dorset. I am sure we will return one day.

Kick back and enjoy

Just had 3 nights at this site, firstly the wardens are very hard working and the site is immaculate considering you are in a wooded area. The one concern I had was the dog walk that dogs have to be on a lead at all times due to the deer having young. This wasn't an issue as there are 2 dog walks within 10min walk which they can run free. Did I mention deer for early risers you will be met with a beautiful sight 30 deer running free and of course Dolly who comes to say hello. Please don't worry about the toilets very clean and I like the Bio-diversity scheme. Pub on your doorstep as well as a train station will be coming back and as this is a little gem of a site.

3 nite stay

This was our second visit to this site. It was so busy we didnt get a pitch where we wanted it and therefore our stay wasnt as nice as the first stay due to being close to noisy children. However this is to be expected over a bank holiday weekend. Still better than many sites because of the layout being amongst trees. The showers are poor, low pressure but hopefully these will be updated as i think many people were complaining about them. I didnt have a problem with the composting toilets, great idea. We will definately go back but will avoid busy school holiday times.

A perfect campsite for peace and quiet and respectful fellow campers

If you like a campsite with all the "bells and whistles", club houses, entertainment, people with flag poles and caravans piled on top of each other, this is NOT the campsite for you. However, if you like secluded, spacious pitches and beautiful surroundings, this will be more your cup of tea. We were very lucky to find a cancellation for bank holiday weekend! The wardens were really friendly and found a perfect pitch for us. We think it's one of the nicest campsites we've been to in this country, and I feel really refreshed after our stay.

Second visit

We stayed here in July for 2 nights and enjoyed it so much we booked again for 3 nights. The wardens are friendly, welcoming and really helpful. As we have a large Motorhome we were shown which pitches would suit. Please read the site description reference composting toilets so you know what to expect. As mentioned yes the showers may be dated and not very powerful but they are immaculate and do the job.plenty of information available in the hut and the shop stocks basics lovely walks in and around the site. Off site go left at the entrance and approx 10 minute walk there's a Co-OP. Go right 5 minute walk to train station and a pub which does excellent meals ( booking recommended) Regular train service. We visited Weymouth Saturday Bournemouth Sunday.. we plan to go back but it maybe next year due to other bookings.. but I'm checking my diary and leave availbility in work..
