 We have not even got here yet but having spoken to the lovely Jenny on reception we cannot wait

What a lovely and friendly receptionist!

It looks absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to get there

You see it’s so impressive I’m reviewing it already!

Reviewer: Jusbluey 25 reviews from this member

 We were delighted with this lovely site. The amenities are excellent & its closeness to the coast makes it a good base. Over the time of our holiday we walked many miles over the coast path & inland.

We visited many lovely old pubs & enjoyed great ales & food. We visited Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis, Bridport (where there is a fab pie/pasty shop), Charmouth (one of my fave places) & walked the whole coast line of Portland.

Whilst there we heard that a lot of people had lost their lives on the roads in Dorset so far this year (obviously nothing the site can do about that). I can understand why when so many vehicles drive at crazy speeds.

We had a very near miss when we were turning off the A road to the site & some idiot overtook us, mindless. We thoroughly enjoyed fish & chips from the van that visits twice a week.

My only negative is that it isnt close to any shops, Charmouth is 3 miles away, thankfully we took a car as well. We would definitely revisit this site

Reviewer: FlossieO 1 review from this member

 Monkton Wyld is a clean, and efficiently run site which is quiet enough as a site.

However, there is a big BUT. If you are looking for a quiet location for your visit for a short break during the main holiday months of July/August we could not recommend.

The location appears very tranquil until you realise that it is bordered by two 'B' class and one major 'A' trunk road with heavy traffic driving past for most of the night!

So if you are looking for that tranquil place, away from traffic noise, it is not the best location.

Other than that, it is good for accessing many tourist attractions on the Jurassic coast.

 I visited here mid June and was totally bowled over with the extremely high standard of this site.

Everything from the reception staff and site staff being incredibly polite and friendly to the lovely spacious pitches and toilet and shower facilities to match most 5 star hotels.

Great dog walk and landscaping as well as a convenient location for seaside resorts make this a really great site.

Well done Charmouth. Will definitely be coming back again.

You have set the highest of standards.

 We visited Monkton Wyld in August and we were very impressed. The whole site was very tranquil and the setting was perfect.

We enjoyed the walks and amazing coastline close by and could of stayed far longer! The shower block was clean and tidy and we saw notices explaining there will be a new block in place for the coming season.

The staff were very friendly and had great knowledge of the surrounding areas. We used the shop to buy basics and a handy local map. The woodland on site was great exercise for our dog.

We thoroughly recommend this site to our friends!

 We arrived very late, having taken a friend's advice as to our route in pouring rain and fog (June!)

The staff had gone home but had thoughtfully left all our information by the front door.

When we did meet the staff, they were really nice and helpful, but the whole site and facilities were a bit tired, and that was the only place we've had to queue for the showers.

Reviewer: Redhead67 5 reviews from this member

 This site disappointed us - for the number of pitches, plus a rally field there were two shower blocks, one of which had 3 toilets and 2 showers, which were very dated. Most pitches were occupied by families with at least 4 people and on the day we arrived the toilet block near us was blocked - so even worse.

The staff in reception were really friendly and helpful but the site lacked any atmosphere - just felt flat and soulless - strangely enough a previous reviewer felt the same.

The dog walk area was odd - a beautiful small woods but couldn't let him off the lead so felt pointless.

For a camping and caravanning site this felt like a commercial 'chain' campsite - very odd. In truth we left cutting our losses and stayed at The relaxing and wonderful Hook Farm in Lyme Regis Instead. Just not right for us.

 Just had 9 nights here, for 1st time. Should have been 10 but weather bad, so came home. Very large site, with lots of people and lots of dogs! Site full every week. Facilities were excellent, as you would expect from club site. Close to Charmouth, Axminster and Lyme Regis. Too, too many dogs. With some people having 4 big dogs. Everyone was walking their dogs. With a lot of people thinking that the dog walk was the place to let them off the lead !. I would have preferred somewhere a little less crowded, and fewer dogs. Saying ths, it was a good site.

Reviewer: Petesargent 4 reviews from this member

 This site is a well regimented camp. Facilities are clean and modern. The site slopes in many places so take chocks. The shop is well stocked but has limited opening times. The wifi is slow and intermittent. The staff are not the usual friendly ones you find on other camping and caravan sites. As stated elsewhere this site lacks atmosphere and is really a place to pitch and head off to the surrounding area. It is very convenient for Lyme and the coast. Beware of traffic noise from the main road. Note there are many dogs on this site and the rules on the use of leads is not enforced thus despite a well lit dog walking area dog mess is an issue here.

Reviewer: Nikko136 48 reviews from this member

 This was our very best experience of Camping and Caravan Club sites. The ladies at reception were friendly and helpful and a warden promptly guided us to our allocated hardstanding pitch, which was of good size and level. Views from the site across the Dorset hills were very good.

For once a club site which has well-designed showers, with adequate hooks and an area for shoes, clothes etc. Well out of the line of water from the shower head. These rooms were clean and warm. Like so many C&CC sites the washing-up ‘room’ is only partially enclosed, unheated and open to the elements. On the plus side there was a paper towel dispenser to wipe the sink and draining board after use.

The good dog-walk was adequately long and interesting (central ‘avenue’ had overhead fairly lights). Pity there was no off-lead run as well.

When we were there Reception and hence the shop closed at 4pm, surely about the time many new arrivals will have at best finished pitching and realised that they are short of some item.
