Great addition to the Club portfolio

Recently taken over by the Caravan Club, this site is situated about 2 miles north of Bridport on the A3066. You will only see signs right by the entrance, so it is easy to overshoot and SatNav does not direct you accurately. More visible signs are required urgently. The site offers pitches for caravans, motor homes and tents. It is of a good standard with the usual friendly wardens. Due to the variable pitch sizes you will be allocated to a set pitch. I loved the way the site is broken up by hedging, and some of the tent pitches were in their own private spaces. If you have a motorhome (and there were lots) the serviced pitches are a definite bonus. The site is essentially in three areas. The upper site (to the left of the entrance) is more cramped than a normall CAMC site. The middle site (we were on pitch 81 in this area) is very nice. The lower site is motorhomes and tents. I hope future changes planned don't spoil this. Towards the end of our stay the new wardens opened a small shop - very welcome. Unfortunately ice cream had yet to arrive and gas was in short supply. There are lovely dog walks and it is a straight 2km strl over fields to the Pymore Inn and the Half Moon pubs one way and the Hare & Hounds the other. Do check opening times as we found both the Half Moon and the Hare were closed Mondays & Tuesdays. If you want peaceful beaches, we found Charmouth and Seatown were much quieter than West Bay. However, some local roads are no good for Motorhomes. There is also a good caravan spares and accessories shop, Dorset Leisure, at Charmouth. The site is in the process of transformation to meet CAMC standards. The restaurant and bar has closed and it is likely there will be holiday cottages, a new office and pitch improvements over the next year or two. I hope they don't get rid of the individual washing/toilet/shower cubicles. I especially liked the slate floored ones behind the site office. This arrangement felt much safer in the post Covid19 world than the traditional CAMC blocks.
