Charmouth Camping and Caravanning Club Site in Dorset is soon to welcome luxurious Caravan Holiday Homes onto its site in a bid to provide more accommodation for members who want to spend more time on this multiple award winning camp site.

This fantastic site, surrounded by picturesque countryside and located by the West Dorset’s World Heritage Coast, will have 28 Caravan Holiday Homes, in a high quality development enjoying full use of the sites range of facilities. With attractions such as Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, The Cricket St Thomas Wildlife Park and the beautiful Lyme Bay waters, there are a host of activities to suit all ages.

Through purchasing a Holiday Home on Charmouth, owners will benefit from a welcoming, smaller development.  The plots themselves are a very generous size, with room to make your Holiday Home your own, whether this be through decking, shrubs or similar. Also included is a warm and friendly environment, with managers situated on-site.  107 years of Club experience will ensure that you get the most out of the area and your home.  

Simon Kewley, Charmouth Site Franchisee says “We are very excited to welcome the arrival of Caravan Holiday Homes.  This area of Dorset is perfect for exploration, as well as relaxation.  Holiday Homes will fit in perfectly on the Charmouth Site and will provide a base for many happy holidays.”

Steve Harris, Chairman of The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Sites Committee, says “The Club is always looking to offer our members more choice; however they choose to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. We are keen to respond to our member’s needs, and we know that many look to Caravan Holiday Homes as a base to return to their favourite part of the country time after time.

“This development marks the first time that we have been able to offer Caravan Holiday Homes in the South of England, which will undoubtedly be extremely popular. This development is already generating a lot of interest, so we would recommend booking your plot early to avoid disappointment.”
