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, gym, sauna and steam room, and there are active options on site for all ages such as tennis, two children’s play areas and even a duck pond to feed the natives (pick up duck food at the park shop). 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 by the exceedingly smart Cowshed Café, again with views across the coastline, and at the park bar and restaurant dishing up all sorts of homemade meals using fresh local produce (we bet this is 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 children’s 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 our 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.
(Please note that the site bar is closed from November to March, while the shop and Cowshed Café are closed from December until 6 February. There is an additional charge to use the tennis courts. The courts and the children’s play areas are open all year round.)

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
