Alan Rogers Review

Monkton Wyld combines pitches for the independent camper and for members of The Camping and Caravanning Club. The park prides itself on its conservation efforts and the space and landscaping provided. Every pitch backs against a hedge or flower bed; 150 pitches, of which 92 are hardstanding, have 16A electricity. A further 50 tenting pitches are available in the school holiday period. A number of privately owned holiday homes have a separate area. There is also a range of self-catering accommodation, including a safari tent, cottages, a flat and a large farmhouse. This family run park has matured into an attractive, comfortable, garden-like park with trees and flowering shrubs and is maintained to a high standard.

There is a comprehensive tourist information centre and a well stocked shop to provide most daily needs. Local meat, bread and wine are available. Two grass playgrounds provide a range of children’s activities with plenty of space for ball games. Plenty of walking opportunities are possible within the 80 acres of adjoining Forestry Commission woodland just across the lane.


Two well built, heated toilet blocks are fully equipped. Family room with baby changing facilities (can also be accessed by wheelchairs). Laundry area. Gas supplies. Shop (Easter-end Oct). Takeaway (May-Aug). Play areas. Caravan storage. Gate locked at 23.00. Caravan holiday homes for private purchase and other self-catering accommodation available. WiFi over site (charged).

Park is signed on A35 between Charmouth and Axminster, 2.5 miles west of Charmouth. Turn right at Greenway Head (B3165 signed Marshwood) and park is on the left. Do not go to Monkton Wyld hamlet as the road is very steep.
