Space for all the family

General

  • In an attractive harbour village two minutes' walk from the beach
  • Two miles from the market town of Bridport
  • Pool, paddling pool, adventure playground, climbing wall, bar and café

Dorset apple cake with clotted cream, spankingly fresh seafood, organic cheeses, sumptuous ice cream, lipsmacking local ales – no wonder so many people flock to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s old stamping ground.

The first River Cottage TV shows were filmed at his smallholding near West Bay Holiday Park, where guests are perfectly placed to make the most of the farmers’ markets, restaurants and brewery tours in the pretty neighbouring town of Bridport on Dorset's Jurassic Coast.

Don’t forget your bucket and spade: you can walk straight through the gates of the holiday park into West Bay’s scenic harbour and onto the stunning beach which goes on for miles. There’s no shortage of things to do on site either: wallowing about in the indoor pool, which has a separate toddlers’ pool with a slide, as well as a full-sized flume; there's also bike hire, nature trails, eclectic activities for preschoolers to teens in the well-organised kids’ clubs, a great adventure playground with a climbing wall, amusements, and free evening entertainment for the whole family in the Riverside Club.

There are good basic amenities on site (including a launderette, shop and off licence, and a cash machine) as well as a bar and café with harbour views if you tire of the washing up.

    Not a lot to like. Even though we had booked and I have since been informed by Pitchup that they had confirmed with them, they said they had no record of our booking. After a four hour journey all they would say was that they had no room for us. 10 days later and I'm still waiting for a refund. From what I could gather we weren't the only customer this happened to that day. West Bays mistake cost me £50 more than my booking price, the only other option they could provide meant travelling a further 50 mile to a inland site. Staff were apologetic but accepted no real responsibility for the issue and passed all blame on to Pitchup and their head office.

    Staff and area were great

    Disliked: 

    Not told about building works previously, we didn’t know how to get into the reception as the area was dug up with numerous skips surrounding it!
    The touring showers had been updated but not finished so we couldn’t have a shower as the cubicles has not been added, there was a shabby disabled room which you could use but was rarely available.
    At day 4 they hung temporary shower curtains which clung to you and there was nowhere to dress so I had to back into the toilet.
    Sadly the area and staff were greet but I wouldn’t have booked here if u had know about these problems.
    Corona virus then brought our stay to a halt which is no nobody’s fault.

Excellent resort04/11/2019

Reviewer's country: United Kingdomalan n.Confirmed

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

    The resort was superb for as so much to do with the two kids
    Entertainment was exceptional and they absolutely loved it. All facilities were really good and clean. Ideal location for us as we went out in town with kids. Will come back next year.

    Disliked: 

    The guy on reception at touring was rude to us . I think his name was Barry
    We turned up and the grass pitch road was very muddy and I was concerned we would get stuck. He stood and watched as I struggled to gain access to the pitch and shook his head rather than helping us. He has tractor sat by the pitch and didn't offer to help and then walked to another pitch as laughed an joked with the guy as he continued to look at me struggled in mud.

    I must say that when we left he wasn't there and a younger man was very helpful and pulled u out with tractor.

Local attractions

Start on the doorstep in West Bay itself: you could go fossil hunting underneath the sandstone cliffs, crabbing in the harbour, take a boat tour of the Jurassic Coast, or head out into the big blue yonder on a sea fishing trip; then there’s golf, paragliding, scuba diving, watersports, and excellent walking along the coastal paths…

Take a break from feeding yourself up on all the gorgeous local produce to hand feed the birds at Abbotsbury Swannery, where the 600 nesting mute swans make for an impressive sight (and plenty of hungry beaks); there are also award-winning gardens and a kids' farm to explore.

The coastal resort of Lyme Regis has been drawing the crowds since time immemorial and is well worth a visit; other historical gems in West Dorset include the Jacobean manor house of Mapperton, set amongst topiary, terraced gardens and rolling hills; Forde Abbey and gardens; a cluster of castles; and the giant chalk man in the hillside at Cerne Abbas.

Alternatively, if there are animal addicts in your party, they'll go ape for the 240-plus inhabitants of Monkey World and potty for the penguins and underwater specimens at Weymouth Sea Life Park.

Must see

  • Mapperton House & Gardens (6.2 miles)
  • Abbotsbury Swannery (8.1 miles)
  • Radipole Lake Nature Reserve (14.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Shute Barton (13.6 miles)
  • Loughwood Meeting House (13.9 miles)
