Family run parks for families with direct access to their own private beach are rare in Britain and this one has the added advantage of being in beautiful coastal countryside in West Dorset. It now offers the Jurassic Fun Centre with pools, gym, bowling and a café. This building has a living, ‘green’ roof supporting native species of salt-tolerant grass and wildflowers which helps the complex merge into the landscape and includes many eco-friendly features. The park is next to the sea and a beach of fine pebbles, sheltered from the wind by pebble banks. Approached by a fairly steep access road, the park itself is on level, open ground. The 500 touring pitches, 400 with 10A electricity, are on an open, undulating grass field connected by tarmac or hardcore roads. Caravan pitches are marked and evenly spaced in lines.
Some tent pitches are in the main field, with others well spaced on a terraced field. There are 260 caravan holiday homes, with 60 for hire in a separate area. This lively holiday park has an extensive range of facilities, including an outdoor pool, a good value, licensed restaurant and main bar with evening entertainment in season. Daytime entertainment caters for all ages. Footpaths lead to the thatched village of Burton Bradstock and West Bay and the coastal path. The overall impression is of a large, busy holiday park with a friendly reception and happy atmosphere. Units over 23’ long can have extra space at no extra cost during non-peak periods.
