Pilsdon View Camping: Pitches on site

General

  • Friendly, spacious back-to-basics site in rural west Dorset
  • A 10-minute drive from Bridport and 20 from Lyme Regis
  • Eco-friendly site with an orchard, tyre swing and garden toys

Not a fan of being packed in with hundreds of other guests? Pilsdon View Camping owners Terry and April are in full agreement with this point of view – they’ve got four acres to play with here, but they like to keep numbers low to make sure there’s plenty of space for ball games, barbecues, campfires and stargazing (all essential aspects of a trip to the countryside, they suggest…)

That approach and the mighty friendly welcome on offer have earned a huge stack of rave reviews for this rural Dorset site 10 minutes’ drive from Bridport. And there are plaudits for the location too, in a scenic spot with the river Char running alongside and easy access to several footpaths and bike tracks for rural explores.

The owners are doing their level best to preserve that special environment, giving over part of the site to an orchard and growing lots of their own herbs and veggies in the garden (and asking dog owners to keep their furry pals on a lead so they don’t rampage through any of the above and clean up any doings).

Kids can roam fairly freely around this site, playing with the garden toys and tyre swing or setting up their own games; don’t worry about them getting mucky, as there are gas-powered showers to take care of clean-up time. Toilets, a fresh water supply and a washing-up area are also in place close to the pitches field.

Please note that as this is a family site, guests are expected to fall quiet after dark (no amplified music or other noise nuisance will be allowed).

Please note

    What’s not to like ! April and Terry are with out a doubt one of the best owners we have come across ! The site is based across 4 fields facilities are clean and well looked after monitored through out the day regularly. Kids loved the play park and tyre swing and the garden toys . We enjoyed it so much we stayed 15 nights ! In the evening between 6.30-7pm they come round on the tractor with the fire pits which are free to use and logs are £5 a bag which is good pricing! The burger bar on site Jurassic pork was reasonably priced and tasty 😋 the only thing is if you have fussy kids like we do the burgers and hot dogs come with caramelised onions which isn’t stated. Brilliant idea of the ice pack exchange for 20p a pack it saved our coolbox from warming. Due to the impending heat wave we left the Thursday instead of the Friday which we had paid for and Terry was very kind enough to honour our night paid the next time we visit which we definitely will be doing. Lovely place to stay and Thankyou April and Terry for a brilliant few weeks! See you again next year !!

Local attractions

Might you have seen the cliffs of West Bay before? It’s quite possible if you ever watched Broadchurch, as they played something of a starring role in the telly series. They’re even better viewed in real life though, so it’s worth making the 15-minute drive to see them for yourself.

Lyme Regis (20 minutes’ drive) is another fine choice for a day by the sea – mackerel fishing trips head out from the harbour, and there may well be fossils lurking on the beach (and if there aren’t any presenting themselves, you can see what other folk have found at the town’s Dinosaurland Museum).

In fact, pretty much the whole stretch of coast here is worth a visit, so strolls on the South West Coast Path are highly recommended. The scenery extends under the surface too, with the 2,000-year-old Beer Quarry Caves (35 minutes) certainly meriting a detour.

Away from the coast, Axe Valley Wildlife Park and Mapperton House and Gardens are both within 20 minutes’ drive, as are a couple of vineyards and cider producers for guests of a particular vintage.

Must see

  • Mapperton House & Gardens (4.8 miles)
  • Abbotsbury Swannery (12.3 miles)
  • Montacute House (12.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Loughwood Meeting House (10.8 miles)
  • Shute Barton (10.9 miles)
