General

  • Quiet park with countryside and farmland setting
  • Five minutes' drive from the nearest beach
  • Access to two other holiday parks nearby

It’s jolly diverse, the British countryside. Take for example the quiet Graston Copse Holiday Park at Bridport, where there’s more habitat on the doorstep than visitors can shake a stick at.

You could sit in the shade in the leafiness of the park’s mature trees, amble around the surrounding farmland, go to spot water voles, kingfishers and woodpeckers steps away in the Dorset countryside, or drive to the beach just five minutes away.

There’s also the quintessential English village in the vicinity too: Burton Bradstock with its sixteenth and seventeenth century thatched cottages, beach café and the chance to spot local resident Billy Bragg.

The park has good basic amenities: washing-up area, free ice block freezing facilities and chemical disposal, as well as free showers and free hairdryers available, and a tourist information point with details on what to see and do in the area.

Guests can also pay to use the facilities at the two other West Dorset Leisure Holiday Parks nearby: there’s a large and well-stocked fishing lake at Golden Cap, or leisure options at Highlands End Holiday Park such as tennis, a gym and the all-important sauna and steam room for proper Dorset de-stressing.

Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award

Admission fees apply to use of the leisure facilities at Highlands End Holiday Park.

    Pitches were level.

    Disliked: 

    You are not able to get onsite until 3pm so that is a day wasted, and then you have to get off by 11am. We decided to let the kids go swimming at the sister site highlands end. The brochure states that the parent or guardian must sign a consent form for under 15's which we were happy to do, but then we were told that the kids could only go poolside if an adult accompanied them, as we had no swim wear the kids were disappointed again. We did find a really good leisure centre 2 minutes down the road where the kids were made very welcome.
    Facilities onsite were not that brilliant as there were only two male and female showers in the respective toilets, although there an additional 3 behind the toilet block. Don't touch the wifi it's very expensive.

From the manager...


Thank you for your feedback.
We are disappointed that you down rated us because of issues at another park.
Yes we do have two male and two female showers in the first block but as you noted we do have additional showers onsite.

Excellent site, great location for a quiet holiday 07/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Mike D. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Spacious pitches - loads of room to spread out and for the kids to play, surroundings - nice little riverside walk, leaving areas to grow wild for bees, decent toilet / shower block, staff all really friendly. Away from the sea so a bit more sheltered than sites right on the coast. A short 20 minute walk into Burton Bradstock and loads of other great walks and runs from the site.

    Disliked: 

    Bit of a trek to the toilets from where we camped but not a massive deal. They really could do with a bigger freezer for ice blocks - the one provided is tiny and really struggled to cope especially when the site was at its busiest. Weather could have been better but I realise the site has limited control over this! Wifi was expensive and not particularly great

Local attractions

Marketeers should make a mosey around Bridport their first stop, where there’s been a market in the town since Queen Elizabeth (the first one) graciously granted permission. It’s now held on Wednesdays as well as Saturdays to give everyone the chance to bag fare from food to antiques. The Bridport Museum is also worth a stop, and, as shopping and sightseeing are thirsty work, a visit to sample the ale at the eighteenth century Palmers Brewery is highly recommended.

Bridport’s a gateway town for the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast with enough to do to keep the whole family busy for weeks – there’s fossil hunting, crabbing, boat tours, sea fishing and watersports all around to try, or you could see the country from above and below with a spot of paragliding or scuba diving.

Beachwise there’s bags of choice within a short journey of Graston Copse: the small pebbly beach at Hive is a National Trust site – drop in while here to sample the seafood at the acclaimed Hive Beach Café. The village of Burton Bradstock is tucked at the westerly end of 18 mile long Chesil Beach, one of three major shingle structures in Britain (it’s said that smugglers in years gone by could tell exactly where they were on the beach even in the dead of night, just by the feel of the shingle).

For sandcastle making, sunbathing and more sightseeing, nearby West Bay also goes on for miles and includes several other top spots such as the Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club and the Riverside Restaurant, voted one of the best seafood restaurants in the country.

For West Dorset attractions, spare a thought for the inhabitants at Abbotsbury Swannery once you’ve taken a break from all that seafood – there are over 600 hungry beaks to hand-feed here as well as a children’s farm and award-winning gardens to look around.

Then take a wander around the seaside towns of Charmouth, Weymouth and Lyme Regis, go shopping in Beaminster or Sherborne, or become Caesar-like in Dorchester at the Maumbury Rings and Roman Amphitheatre.

Must see

  • Abbotsbury Swannery (5.9 miles)
  • Mapperton House & Gardens (6.0 miles)
  • Radipole Lake Nature Reserve (12.8 miles)
