We first visited here in August 2020 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, just prior to the site being bought by Park Holidays and sadly this has not been for the better. The site location is good for both Charmouth and Lyme Regis and the surrounding areas, but the road noise, whilst something that the site cannot do anything about, needs to be taken into consideration for the pitches at the top of the site nearest the road and unfortunately choosing your pitch prior to arrival is not an option. Pitches are extremely small, with cars having to park in front of their units, usually roadside. A map of the site is provided but with no pitches being numbered it's impossible to locate your pitch without the assistance of a man on a quad, this causes a bit of an issue at busy times when a backlog of arrivals start to turn up. The vehicle noise is near enough constant combined with motorbikes thinking they're on a race track. The cafe is shut, not a problem or issue for us as we would not have used it had it been open but again sadly the mobile food vendors that frequented the site on our last visit, and were excellent, have disappeared and unlike many other CAMC sites not even a fish and chip van visits the site. The shop is not particularly well stocked on one occasion they didn't even have any milk, saying that the delivery had not turned up that morning, but no effort had been made to find alternative options to source some. As others have stated, it would seem that they are more focused on the mass of static caravans and glamping pods which occupy substantial parts of the site and the touring side is definitely taking a back seat. Sadly this reflects on the quality of the facilities and cleanliness and I really do think that CAMC must consider whether this site is worthy of being included in their list of sites. I know it is an affiliated site, but compared to member only CAMC sites this falls far below the standards one expects of being a member.
