Stayed here in June for 4 nights on a premium serviced pitch. While a bit more expensive, this suited us as we could top up water halfway through our stay without having to move the motorhome.
Pitch was allocated on arrival and we were guided to our pitch by one of the friendly and helpful members of staff, who also explained the facilities.
The grounds are beautiful with a lovely walk down to the lake, with a secure enclosed dog walk area, with plenty of room to exercise the pooch.
Charmouth beach is about 20 minutes walk, but a bit of a hill back to the site. Charmouth is pretty although not a huge amount there, a pub and a few shops. Helpful for stocking up the supplies.
Lyme Regis is about 50 minutes walk, but 20 minutes on the bus, which has an hourly service and is a short walk from the site.
Lyme Regis is definitely worth a visit for the beach and eating establishments.
The site has regular visits from a takeaway fish & chip van and curry van. Very useful.
My only criticism is the shower block. Each block has one toilet and 6 separate shower rooms which are a small bathroom with toilet, shower and basin.
The problem is they tend to get used as a toilet, as only one separate toilet is available.
They also get very steamed up because 1. The pre-set shower temperature is too hot and can’t be adjusted. 2. The ventilation is poor. They need better extractor fans. There is a window, but didn’t like to leave open while in the shower as people could see in.
The shower is also on a spring load button, but only gives 12 seconds of flow before it needs pushing again (I timed it). That’s not enough time to even rinse your hair.
By the time I’d dried my hair, I felt like I’d had a sauna, despite propping the door open.
The site is close to the A35 so you do get traffic noise if you are close to the entrance, however that did not spoil our stay.
Overall, we had a lovely stay and found the staff very friendly and helpful.
