We recently spent 4 nights on the camping field at Monkton Wyld and can thoroughly recommend it for anyone with a caravan or tent - whatever the size. We have a large tent and gazebo and pitched hence why we went on the camping field and, despite it being the overflow area, it was well provided for with toilet and shower blocks as well as water points in the field. My only request about that would be could we please have a pot wash there as the closest was into the main site area.
The reception staff were very helpful and physically led us to the pitch with a little golf buggy that I thoroughly enjoyed a ride on :D and there is a very nice man who does hog roast on a Friday night and jacket spuds on a Saturday night.
Upon arrival you are given a leaflet with lots of useful information - including local medical centres which was of great help when we needed to take our three year old for some medical attention.
There is a beautiful dog walk within a little wooded area which is lit up at night with fairy lights and we would happily travel back there again if we are visiting the area.
Despite it being a fairly large site there are several different areas which are hidden from each other by hedges, trees and bushes and it felt less intrusive than its size might suggest.
Before you travel though - just check your sat nav as ours kept trying to take us left off the main road opposite the Huntsman Public House which then leads to an awkward right hand turn back onto the road for the site. If you go past the Huntsman and take the second left it i much easier.
The location is ideal for trips to Charmouth Weymouth, Lyme Regis and many other beaches and venues in the area.
- 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
