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

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    So, as all boxes are required for a review, I couldn't state a unique event.
    The organisers were kind and inviting with their communication, yet I couldn't attend due to a random and violent migraine. I emailed them to explain that I couldn't attend, and they sent a kind message to say that I am able to use the booking again later. I thought it was a kind and personal touch, so they deserve a good rating and kind words on their behalf.

    Quiet site surrounded by trees and fields, close to the seaside and local attractions. Complimentary marshmallows for toasting on arrival. Also offering a new freezer block exchange service this year which we found very useful. Owners always on hand to help if needed. Liked staying in a bell tent rather than pitching our own tent!

    Amazing campsite, beautiful location, very peaceful. The owners are so friendly and helpful, love the fact that you can easily get logs for your fire and food on site. Toilets really clean, lovely hot showers and the kids loved the playground and tyre swing. We would definitely recommend this site to all, especially those with kids.

    From the welcome blackboard with our names on when we arrived to the moment we left the campsite, our experience here was wonderful. We arrived just after the bank holiday, so it was lovely and quiet. Wonderful and spacious, the pitches are flat and facilities spotless. The gas powered showers were lovely and the toilets kept well stocked and clean. Terry, April and their team were so welcoming and the atmosphere on the site was so lovely. The children (7+5) loved the tyre swing and little toys provided and had great fun making new friends in the play area. It really is a beautiful secluded location but really handy for trips to Lyme Regis, West Bay and Charmouth. Definitely recommend and look forward to returning.

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 (7.8 kilometers)
  • Abbotsbury Swannery (19.8 kilometers)
  • Montacute House (20.8 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Loughwood Meeting House (17.4 kilometers)
  • Shute Barton (17.5 kilometers)
