Tonight we are pitched on Newlands Holiday Park at Charmouth, it’s a large very well kept site with lots of amenities, not the normal site we select but I’ve no complaints.
We drove here firstly with a stopover at Bridport, we parked in Morrison’s car park, free for 3 hours, we did a small shop and filled with fuel. The walk into Bridport was pleasant and we enjoyed a ramble up and down its main street.
From Bridport it is a mile to the coast at West Bay, which has a harbour obviously well used for commercial fishing as well as pleasure boats. There appeared to be a quite a few outlets selling Cornish pasties. I can imagine in the height of the season it would be a very busy place with people enjoying its wonderful sandy beaches.
It has good parking facilities, one car park has dedicated spaces for motorhomes, sadly though, no overnight parking.
