Monkton Wyld Farm offers idyllic Camping and Caravanning in West Dorset and straddles the Dorset/Devon border, three miles from the coastal village of Charmouth and the historic harbour town of Lyme Regis, centre of the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline.
Monkton Wyld Touring Park exudes a special character, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We began welcoming visitors in 1991 and since those early days the park has flourished into a wonderful location to base your visit to West Dorset. The park lies in 25 acres of beautifully landscaped and carefully maintained grounds; over the last 17 years we have focused on ensuring that the park complements the rich landscape of the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Shrubs, trees and flowers abound while mature oaks spread across surrounding farmland that forms the rolling countryside. We have also enhanced the site by the careful planting of native woodland to divide the grounds into several separate small paddocks which add to the general atmosphere of peace and quiet.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Today the Cobb is used by fishing boats and pleasure craft alike and although seperate from the main town it remains the focal point of Lyme Regis.
