It's a lovely site which is modern clean and well kept, there is obviously a pride taken here, the staff are very helpful and pleasant to talk to. We were on a bit of a slope but I found that rather than moan about it I simply used my ramps and adjusted the caravan accordingly and hey presto... sorted. However... More

Dear Wayne, The heading for your review is 'Wifi, what Wifi?" Well, that's what we want to know! We have been able to supply a wifi service to our guests for the last ten years, never fantastic, but good enough for emails and general web browsing. This year however, BT have throttled back our broadband supply to an unusable maximum... More

Super location within easy reach of Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Axminster etc. The caravan pitches themselves were fine, but beware the noisy road behind the hard standing pitches, expect to wake up early thanks to that. If I stay again, I would ask to be moved to to slightly further away from the road. Wifi did not work at all during... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Monkton Wyld Camping, Caravanning & Static Holiday Caravans offers idyllic Camping and Caravanning in West Dorset. Straddling the Dorset/Devon border only three miles from the coastal village of Charmouth and the historic harbour town of Lyme Regis; centre of the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. 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. ... more   less
