Highlands End Holiday Park: Aerial photo of the camping and touring field overlooking Eype beach

General

  • Family park overlooking Lyme Bay
  • Within walking distance of Eypemouth beach and Eype village
  • Café, bar and restaurant with vintage fire engines

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 holidays in the 50 or so years since: the first-class facilities here include a generously-sized heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room (available for an additional charge only).

There are active options on site for all ages such as soft play (charge applies) and two play areas, plus a duck pond for gentle waterside strolls. (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.

    Beautiful site with plenty to do. Facilities were all really clean and plenty of showers and toilets to accommodate everyone. The views were stunning. Nice big dog exercise area too. Everyone was really friendly.

    Disliked: 

    If you weren’t a holiday home owner you had to pay for wifi which was a bit of a pain. Not had to do that on other sites where there were holiday home owners but the arts the only down point.

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.
