  • 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; 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 (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.

    If you're coming with a European vehicle there's no grey water drain for vehicles that empty straight out under the vehicle. British campers all have grey water tanks that hook up to a reservoir outside the vehicle so grey water disposal definately a problem for French campervans, that's why I've given 4 stars instead of 5 otherwise 5 would have been well deserved.

    The staff were rude and unhelpful in every way a code was given to enter the toilet block which is weird and tells you the clientele that’s expected if the block was clean and modern maybe that would justify this but the toilets were filthy and the shower and sink areas the same the site overall is jaded and tired looking which is a shame as the town and its scenery is really nice

    Not too busy, lovely view of the cliffs.
    Pool was a good size, as was the pub/restaurant. Entertainment was ok.
    5 min walk to the beach around the harbour.


    Ground was on a slope.
    And ground was very muddy. Campers and cars getting stuck and needing a push out of pitches. There was spare gravel pitch’s available and would have made sense to put you in them to save damage to the grass.

Local attractions

Starting 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.
