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..

Just perfection!

Just returned from a 21 night stay at our favourite little oasis of piece and tranquility. We return year upon year and just love the vibe on this site. Surrounded by nature, so many places to visit and just a great place to unwind. Yes, the showers are a little dated and not very powerful but perfectly functional, the composting toilets an eco addition we would be happy with on any site! The wardens work hard to keep both clean so absolutely no complaints. If you want an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern day life this is the site, but with all the benefits of great access to all that Dorset has to offer. We will be back......

Noisy with Awful Toilets and Showers

We spent 2 weeks on the Crossways site and I would have to say they have the worst facilities of all the sites we have ever visted!. There are 6 bug infested run down showers for the entire site. Which are at opposite sides of the park. The showers trickle water out that is luke warm. The composting toilet smell and are not a nice thing to use. Potentially dangerous for young children. There are trains that run past the site with a busy road so its noisy throughout the day and night. Avoid unless your deaf and don't mind using your own facilities. Very dissapointed!

July 19 Stay

We have stayed once before at Crossways and returned as its such a nice site. We like the site very much. Although they have composting toilets they are fine and not at all smelly. The location is very good for us being in a motorhome that we do not want to move once we are pitched. Short walk to pub (changed hands recently) that is not quite as good as before (carvery now) but not too bad. The conservatory area gets booked up so reserve if you want to eat in this area. Train station next to the site with access to Bournemouth / Weymouth / Dorchester which is great. We were pitched next to the railway line and the trains sound the horn when they are approaching the railway crossing at the station. It didn't really bother us as they do not run all night but some might not like the railway noise. Choose a pitch away from the railway and you should be fine. We will return to the site as it is very nice. Pitches are hidden away in smaller enclosed glades which make the site feel very small and intimate.

Love it here........

This is one of our favourite sites, so different from the others. We had a fabulous pitch , secluded amongst the trees for complete peace and quiet, just lovely. As its local to us we also brought along our car so we could visit the surrounding area, Swanage, Burton Bradstock beach not far away. If your just taking your motorhome you may struggle with places to visit from site if staying for any length of time. The site dog walk is ok but you cant let dogs off at all because of the Deer, which are lovely, friendly and like a stroke. The self composting toilets are fine, i found a little scary at first, i wouldnt wear my diamond ring in there just in case it should come off, never to be seen again! The pressure on the shower was very low, but i managed, this was the only downside of the site for me. We have booked to go back for the August bank holiday weekend, cant wait!

Great location

Really friendly, helpful cheerful site wardens. Well kept site. Really peaceful ( occasional train horn heard). Walking distance to local co op. Walking distance to a pub..serves meals up to 21.00hrs. And within walking distance to train station. Train to Weymouth takes about 20 minutes. Regular service Read site description. Don't be put off by the Toilets. Whilst the water in showers is hot. I found the pressure low. But that's about the only negative. We plan on going back again. So that should be enough in itself as a review

Worst CC site I have visited by far.

The site is in a good location for visiting Weymouth and surrounding areas. The wardens also do try to make the best of the site with herb pots and a picnic area near reception. That’s about the all the good things I can say about it. The facilities are tired and worn. The showers are a trickle and lukewarm. The composting toilets are horrific, they’re a largish hole with a long drop into a pit. Whatever you do don’t look down, vile. On a final note every single bin in the heath area was full to the brim. The worst caravan club site I’ve visited, ever.

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.
