Highlands End Holiday Park: Gravel electric pitch

General

  • Family park overlooking Lyme Bay
  • Indoor pool, sauna and steam room
  • Café, bar and restaurant - with fire engine

Bridport’s Highlands End Holiday Park is certainly on high land, all the way up at clifftop level on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, overlooking the spectacular blue waters of Lyme Bay and with bridleway access to the walks of the World Heritage Coast. Most uplifting.

Highlands End was the first park in the West Dorset Leisure group and the team has learnt a thing or three about family hols in the 30 or so years since: the first-class facilities here include a generously-sized heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room. There are active options on site for all ages such as soft play (charge applies), two play areas and a duck pond to feed the natives. (If you’re all of a conundrum about what to do in Dorset, make for the on-site tourist information office which has leaflets and videos on local attractions.)

Eats are covered at the park bar and restaurant dishing up all sorts of homemade meals using fresh local produce (probably the only restaurant you’ll ever go to with a 1936 Leyland Fire Engine and 1902 Merryweather Steam fire engine). Too nice a day to sit inside? There’s a beer garden – and play area – out the back.

From Highlands End it’s a 500-metre coastal walk to the sand and shingle beach at Eypemouth and the village of Eype, in many people's humble opinion one of the prettiest villages in Dorset (a beach hut here was listed at the sky high price of £200,000 in 2011). The bridleway near the park will also take you to Symondsbury, West Bay, and over acres of countryside and farmland, much of it maintained by the National Trust.

Finally, the site team stress that although they'd love to be able to guarantee fine weather at all times, please note that pitches here are on the clifftop to make the most of the spectacular views. This can also mean that they're exposed to high winds during periods of bad weather and so it's recommend that you ensure your tent is secured well.

Excellent site with plenty of well maintained and clean facilities.02/08/2022

  • Electric gravel touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The whole campsite has a friendly atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and helpful, providing sound advice where necessary.
    We particularly liked the dog friendliness of the whole site including the free doggie shower which proved useful after trips to the beach. Not only that but the nearby town of Westbay is also dog friendly and only a short walk away along the coastal path.
    The sea views are fantastic with beautiful sunsets in the evenings to wind down to. We will definitely be going back.

    Disliked: 

    The walk down to the beach can be a bit of a struggle and certainly not ‘wheel friendly’ if pushing a pushchair, festival trolley or mobility scooter so you need to be prepared for that and although there is an additional private car park and kiosk by the beach there are no toilets but I guess that would be out of the control of the campsite itself.

    Lots of space in each pitch. Facilities clean and plenty of showers, toilets and hand basins. Pool lovely and the convenience of the on-site restaurant and shop. Would have liked to try the pitch and putt but ran out of time. Walk to Eype and West Bay beaches okay, a bit steep coming back again.

Reviewer's country: United KingdomSue M.Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location is excellent, two bays are walkable, West Bay and Eype. The site is very well organised, you have a Spa shop and a pub and so you can either cater for yourself or eat out without leaving the site. West Bay has plenty of places to eat out also. We were spoilt by the weather, sunshine almost all week. The site is exposed, so wind can be a problem, but the positive is the views from the cliff top.
    Dogs well provided for, with an exercise area, you are also right on the coastal path.
    This is a much bigger site than we usually stay on, but we would certainly return.

Local attractions

From beaut beaches to historic towns, fossil hunting to wholesome hikes, the Dorset coast has a colossal amount of activities and attractions whatever floats your boat. Cast off for some sea fishing, take a boat trip or scuba dive to the depths from local beaches, or tee off instead with a course around the clifftop 18 holes of the Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club.

West Bay and Bridport are both about a mile from Highlands End (just the right distance to walk for an ice cream on a sunny day), and at least a day is recommended in each: the miles of West Bay for sunbathing, watersports and landing mackerel from a boat; and the market town of Bridport for its 17th-century museum and the market, going strong since Elizabethan times and the place to pick up everyday items like local food and more outlandish bits and bobs like clothes and antiques.

Beachcombers and fossil finders will probably find themselves at Lyme Regis at some point, one of the most famed stretches on the Jurassic Coast and along with Bridport one of its gateway towns – it was here that famous geologist Mary Anning made her first finds in the 19th century and the town holds an annual Mary Anning Day as well as the Lyme Regis Fossil Festival. Visitor centres and museums are dotted all around the coast; if you’re not sure where to start, most have guided tours available.

Hikers will be happy too with the wealth of paths and bridleways snaking around coast and countryside from Highlands and beyond – the South West Coast Path follows the entire 95-mile Jurassic coastline and Dorset has around 300 miles of waymarked paths and trails. Buses stop at many coastal spots, or hire a minibus to spectate the scenery in style.
