“Brit Valley camp site, West Bay, Dorset.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

A fantastic campsite buy the river Brit at West Bay, only open for six weeks of the year, no booking facilities, just arrive pitch your tent, caravan or motor home on any available space, no electric hook ups, this place is for proper campers, the owner comes around the site in his Landover 2 or 3 times a day, to collect money and have a friendly chat with the campers, everything is very laid back, great site, 2 minute walk into West Bay, and a lovely 20 minute or so walk into Bridport which is a beautiful little Dorset Town, fantastic cliff top walks, or take a 20 minute drive into the picturesque seaside town of Lyme Regis.
The site has drinking water taps, portacabin toilet and shower blocks, which I must say are far better than on a lot of other permanent sites we have stayed on, very clean, and the showers are more than adequate.
We come to this site every year along with plenty of other regulars, you can not beat this site for value, friendliness and location, highly recommend.

In spite of a poor forecast, the weather turns warm and you want to make an unplanned dash to the coast with your caravan, campervan or tent. Unfortunately it is mid July, the campsites are full and you haven't made a reservation. Never fear. The Britt Valley Campground at West Bay near Bridport is only open for a few weeks in July and August and it has a very relaxed attitude. You simply drive in, grab a suitable spot and wait for someone to come round and ask you for money.

There's plenty of room, although the best spots on the banks of the river will probably be taken by the early birds. There's an adequate shower and toilet block and the town centre is a short walk along through the nearby summer funfair and over a footbridge.

There's a brilliant car boot sale right opposite the site on Saturday mornings and West Bay is noted for its plethora of fish and chip shacks.

OK, West Bay is an acquired taste; a bit 'kiss me quick,' but there are wonderful walks over the cliff tops and you don't have to wander too far along the beach to find a quieter spot. You could take a hammer and go fossil hunting - its not called the Jurassic Coast for nothing.

There always seems to be something happening during the main summer weekends so drive to West Bay and as you approach the town, look out for Britt Vally Campground on your right. Don't expect hard standings or power points; just find a grassy spot, chill out and treat yourself to an early fish and chip supper whilst watching the boats in the harbour.

Room Tip: Get there early and grab a spot by the river where you can watch men trying to impress girlfriends a...
